How can we be happier? Do more of the things that make us happy. Sound too simple to be true? Not for me. Too often the busyness of life prevents me from doing what makes me happy. How dumb is that? Very.
This weekend I did what makes me happy. Very happy. I spent the weekend with my grandson.
Being a grandparent is so much easier than being a parent. I think it’s the reward for surviving parenthood!
It was a rainy weekend so we couldn’t do much outside, but we did grab an hour at the local park. “Play” is under-rated for adults. When is the last time you did something just for fun? Not to accomplish something, but just to have fun?
It had been too long for me. There weren’t swings large enough for me, but there was a seesaw. Not the old-fashioned plank ones I remember from my childhood. But a newfangled one with a spring for the adult side 🙂
He had a slight face plant on the asphalt heading back to the car so we went for ice cream therapy. It helped a lot.
I’m so crazy about this little man. Pardon me for gushing.
Do something that makes you happy today. It feels so good.
