Life Well Lived : Getting Happy

Blogher asked me...

How does blogging, journaling, writing and
connecting online help to increase your happiness?


I spend a good amount of my time meditating on happiness.
My regular readers know this about me
as they've followed along and participated
in my 52 Weeks of Happiness project.

Each week, I look around
and scout out what in my life is making me happy.
Somehow, even when life seems hard,
I find something that brings me joy.
It's become almost a reflex for me
to recognize it.

This blog is a gift.
This is where I claimed my unspoken
bond with the written word.
It's given my musings a place soft place to land.

I've always been a writer,
it' just part of who I am,
Before I started blogging
the words sat lonely on a page in my journal,
begging to be read.

This place has given my words company.
Other writers come here
and become friends with my thoughts.

I feel connected,
I feel heard,
I feel happy
when you meet me here.
