“Occasionally in life there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. Their meanings can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart.” ~ Martin Luther King Jr.
Those are the moments we all long for and that make life so sweet. They can most easily be found when interacting with another person and particularly one of another generation. That’s why events and holidays are so important, why they can add so much to our lives. They are the perfect opportunities for gathering loved ones together, creating memories, and celebrating family traditions; the things that let you love your life.
That’s all happiness really is, a series of moments that we enjoy, doing things that make our heart sing. So right now, take a few minutes, grab a calendar and mark off the opportunities you have in front of you; opportunities to create joy. Check off birthdays, anniversaries, special events, dates of achievement, holidays and “just because” reasons for gathering and celebrating. Then choose a few to focus on, decide how you’d like to celebrate, and make it happen!
