Happy

I believe that the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness. 
 That is clear.
Whether one believes in religion or not,
whether one believes in this religion or that religion,
we are all seeking something better in life.
So, I think, the very motion of our life is towards happiness....
~Dalai Lama

I concur. Pink is one of my favorite colors and the tulips speak of Spring.

Debbie said...

I agree and the GO GO boots just made me happy...and the taste of Spring in the photo of course :)

Daryl said...

Peony perfection ... and the words too

Yes, and there are many on an endless journey of pain and misery because nothing is ever good enough; nothing ever makes them happy. They aren't able to find joy in their lives even though it's right under their nose.

Right now, I'd be fulfilled by a cup or four of coffee. I'm violating my own rule by commenting pre-caffeine.

Beautiful picture and wonderful sentiment.

There are so many little things that make me happy.
One is coming to visit you every day. I'm doing that now.
Another is my husband bringing me another cup of coffee. That makes me happy, too. He never puts enough half & half in it because he deems it too fattening, and strangely that makes me happy too.
I see you are having fun with that camera.

It's so true. And it's usually the little things that are so gratifying.

It's true. Happy beats the hell outta sad any day. Your blog makes me happy. Your cool red boots make me really, really happy. And what makes me ECSTATIC is having the question that popped into my mind a couple of weeks ago answered.

What was the question, you might ask? For some strange reason, while visiting you, I wondered if those four tires were still stacked under that tree! Gotta just love that Augie!

Happy is the new "Groovy"! Hard thing to accomplish sometimes but we all have a lot to be Happy about. Living in this country alone should make us happy.
Thanks for posting this, made me smile and think about how much I love my life.

Wow, perfect words for a perfect photo. (those pink flowers would go SO nicely in my pink milk glass vase!)

Beautiful -- photo and quote. :)

Great photo! Love that you took it from a different point of view. Who could argue with the Dali Lama?!

So ironic that such a sweet, simple thought should come from a) a religious leader and b) one of the more challenged areas of the world. But then, he's not a religious leader in the Western sense, is he? And maybe in the midst of political turmoil and extreme hardship true happiness can be found.

We in the west should take note. Thanks for pointing us to that, Miss MPM. :)
