Tell Me Something Good #107

Image result for happiness quote

I want to start this weeks TMSG post with a quote about happiness rather than Monday. There is so much on my mind at the moment that has a lot to do with happiness and I will get to it later.

I want to start the week with a positive post but I struggle today. It’s been a “bla” day. Mainly because of the fact that it was Mother’s Day yesterday and it was so beautiful to spend it with my family. Now you probably think I’m all nuts. But I explain:

My friend is very sick. I have mentioned it before. She has been moved to palliative care recently and we all know what that means. She got a “get out of jail card” yesterday as she calls it: She was allowed to leave the hospital for a couple of hours to spend the time at home with her family. While she was able to go home she still missed out on so much. Like the soccer game our girls played and seeing them win. She missed out on seeing her daughter be an amazing defender. She missed out on them running through a banner that was made to celebrate their 100th game. And she will miss out on so much in the future.

We had planned for me to go visit her today but she was too exhausted. Physically and mentally. So I didn’t get to see her.

So back to happiness: We all hold the key to happiness in our hands. And my friend is an incredible example of this. Because while she has all the reasons to not be happy, she still is. And it blows my mind so often. She teaches us an incredible lesson. She let’s go of the dark and invites the light. In doing so she creates that happiness that then surrounds her and finds its way to everyone around her.

I’d like to ask you today to take a moment to think about this and then decide what you want to do in the future. If you want to hold that key to happiness and be in charge or if you want circumstances to control your life. I know that this post is very different to my usual TMSG posts but I simply needed this today.

So for all of you who would like to play along and stick to “da rules”, here they are:

It’s easy:

• Mention something that you consider being good in the comments

• Or write a post about it on your blog (please don’t forget the pingback if you do so I don’t miss out and also share the link to it in the comments below). Something good that happened to you recently, or something good you will experience in a little while, or something good you know will happen soon. Something that makes you feel good.

• Share this post and invite your followers as well.

Now although this is different there is simply no way around a happy dance, people… so here it is 😉

  1. Happy Momma’s Day! We had a good day here that could have only been better if my mom lived closer so she could have joined us for supper too. To be happy all we really need to do is choose happiness 😁

  3. LOVE the Groot dance!! Had a cool experience yesterday. We live in a great subdivision where deer roam all over. There are about 60 in here. Yesterday there was a fawn born right next to our house and I got pics of it when it was less than an hour old. I am going to write a post about it today. But that is my something good! 😉
    Happy belated Mother’s Day Sandra! ❤
