Our notions about happiness entrap us. We forget that they are just ideas. Our idea of happiness can prevent us from actually being happy. We fail to see the opportunity for joy that is right in front of us when we are caught in a belief that happiness should take a particular form.

Some might find it sad to realise that one day we will all return to dust. But I quitely consider how wonderful it must be to share a future with you and all the other good people on this earth long after our human body is gone.

Whatever you decide to do today, make sure to include some things that bring out your smile.

I did a lot of things that made me smile today! How about you? 

You do care. You care so much you feel as though you will bleed to death with the pain of it.
