It’s time to be stupidly happy.
Today, I was working on a project and minimized everything on my screen. There he was, a little bit of happy. It was a rabbit yawning. It was so cute I had to call the others in the office over to look at it. “There, I said… I had to share that little bit of happy with you.” The smile faded and I went on with my day. Then, I found a quote.
Man is the only animal for whom his own existence is a problem which he has to solve. – Erich Fromm
As I go about my day, I see people lament their situation. People will rant about what pissed them off. People will cry “why me” when faced with life situations. People will question every little aspect of their lives and what’s going on with it.
What do I say to that? Be the rabbit. Yawn in the morning and don’t care what you look like or how your breath smells.
Sometimes that little voice in our heads which analyzes every aspect of our day actually holds us back from embracing that little bit of happy.
Todays Exercise: Be unabashedly enthusiastic about something that makes you smile or makes you happy. Share it on Facebook. Show the people you work with. Allow yourself to laugh a loud appreciative laugh and bear a big stupid grin.
It’s these little moments of happy that help you live in a mindset of happiness, no matter what is going on.
Now, enjoy this picture of an adorable yawning rabbit.
