Happiness Unbound

What is it that elicits in you a truly unbound moment of happiness?
A long forgotten song suddenly playing in your mind?
An unexpected rain shower wetting the earth and making you splash around?
Reruns of an old TV show that you watched as a child?
Funny sounds you hear when you place your ear on your mother’s belly?
Your train getting to the destination right on time?
Coffee with new friends getting to know each other?
Bumping into an old flame at the music store?
A lazy Saturday wintry afternoon with a musty old book?
A silent bus ride with a secret crush?
Your sister squealing in excitement at an amusement park?
An old friend crossing hundreds of miles to stand at your doorstep when you least expected it?

And people wonder about my tagline…
… Life’s Beautiful!

  1. -> Caveat! Bumping into *some* old flames may bring about a sense of loss, or a feeling of wistfulness, and not happiness :)

  2. Life is indeed beautiful for people who take a moment to enjoy these small things.
