Finding the Happiness in Every Day

16 Jan

I’m not one who frequently quotes Andy Rooney, but I came across this quote this morning and I just had to share.

“For most of life, nothing wonderful happens. If you don’t enjoy getting up and working and finishing your work and sitting down to a meal with family or friends, then the chances are that you’re not going to be very happy. If someone bases his happiness or unhappiness on major events like a great new job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris, that person isn’t going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness.”

-Andy Rooney


I think it speaks right to the heart of celebrating the pretty in every day. Have a great Monday!
