Hello my friends, today one could feel the Fall in the air. In fact it was cool here today, even though the sun was shinning most of the day. I did little today, a few chores this morning, a nap this afternoon and a movie tonight. A quiet day but one I really enjoyed.
I went to rent a movie, I wanted to get Mrs. Palefry at the Farmont (Di, I wanted to hear what I talked like) but they didn't have it, I'm not sure the young girl working there had even heard of it or knew how to look it up on the computer. I didn't see anything that caught my interest so I came back home and took A Walk to Remember from my own collection and watched that. I love that movie and could watch it over again many times. I'm sure you all have seen it but if you haven't it's a real tear jerker with a beautiful theme. It suited my mood tonight.
During the past several days I have had the opportunity to do something I love doing, people watch. I love seeing how people interact with each other, or handle certain situations and while at the hospital I saw what made people smile or cry. I have been thinking a lot about this all week. What makes people happy? What is Happy? I know what makes me happy, a baby laughing, a smile from a stranger, watching someone being helped or cared for......in fact almost everything good, gentle and kind makes me happy. Others aren't so easy to please, no matter what is done for them or given to them it is never enough. Sad really as it would take so little to make someones life just a little bit better, and even less for someone to show appreciation.
I don't think Happy can be described, it's like the wind, we can feel it but can't see it. We are all unique, special in our own way and what makes me happy may make someone else miserable and vice versa. If only we could learn to respect each other, as I think we have more in common, are more alike than different. For all my thinking I still don't know what happy is, I only know I am, perhaps that is enough.
I think peace, contentment and acceptance puts one on the road to happiness....so I wish everyone peace, contentment and acceptance, as they journey on the road to their happiness.
Good Night my friends and God Bless.........:-) Hugs
