365 Days of Happiness (318/365)

365 Days of Happiness (318/365)


I didn’t get lost.  I just let life consume me.  Nothing good ever comes of that, so — I took back the wheel.

Im in Japan, on a business trip for my new job.  Peter came with me, although jet lag is my closest friend right now.  It’s almost 6am here in Tokyo and I just counted the days since my last Day of Happiness!  I’m at day 318.

Were all the days between 274 and 318 happy?  No.

But that’s the point right?  Happiness doesn’t happen.  You can’t chase it down.  You have to stand still long enough, so you can see, hear and feel your own life washing over you like an ocean wave.  Inside that force – is a pebble of happiness.  Your job ..is to grab the pebble.  Hold onto it.  Rub it between your thumb and your finger until it’s smooth.  Happiness emerges…out of your life force.  Be ready to notice it.

Today – my happiness will look, smell and taste like coffee.  Ahhh, I’m excited for this day already!

Good morning Monday from Tokyo.

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
