I went to read the blog of my mastermind buddy Dan Linkert. https://masterkeydanl.wordpress.com. He had a simple and wonderful idea at the end. “So! What makes you Happy?”
OK I thought about that for a day. At first I was looking out there for all kinds of things I really enjoy doing. That wasn’t it. So I looked within, and discovered something new. I normally am Happy and then everything around me just makes me Happier.
I was focused on an event in my house Wednesday. My 4-year-old granddaughter’s birthday. My daughter Ashley put up a bounce house in the living room. I heard the motor fire up and make all kinds of strange noises. I went to look and the thought I had was how delightful. I went and got the camera to take some pictures. Kids are being kids and having fun. Then wonderful Raphaela (my wife) gets home.
Here is that picture. Kids turned on the Super Kid thingy. Attack Grandma
So I’m reading the question Dan made and I am working on the idea of; did that make me Happy? Well yes. But the real truth here is I’ve been working on making this family more Loving by being more Loving, creating a more harmonious home by being more harmonious. So to one degree I am doing something by planting Love and reaping Loving & Happy events like this.
Creating an environment of harmony doesn’t Make something happen. For me I see that working towards the natural Love we have at birth, is the place we should be. We are created to be a Loving Being. When I’m there, and I’m not always. I am available to be Happy and spread more Love and Happiness. So basically I’m against the word “MAKE” when I feel we earn this happiness by being where we should be in the first place.
Just in case you’re bored someday. Put a bounce house in the Livingroom and invite some kids over; OMG. You will never believe the fun that can generate one little thing like this.
For my buddy Dan. What a delightful question you proposed and gave me a HAPPY day to search for Truth. For that Dan I thank You. I’m blessed to have such friends who plant Love in my Life. I can hardly wait to go to Canada and meet Mr. Dan.
