In this post, Leo Babuta of Zen Habits reminds us that, "we can feel happiness, in some form, any moment we like, even in the midst of stress or sadness" and that the key is to remember to smile and have a gracious attitude.
In her Monday inspiration, Tsh of Simple Mom offers this advice: "May you remember to not see your children, your daily work, or whatever you’re called to cultivate, as interruptions to your day. May you remember that they are your day." She reminds us that the grass is greener not on the other side, in the future or in the past or in some other reality, but in the moment where we direct our energy and intentions.
So be present in the moment, and smile!
