Happiness…..in so many words
While thinking about what to write for my first post in my new blog series – Creating Happiness, I knew I *had* to start each post with a quote. I’ve been posting these happy nuggets for a few years on my blog and various social media channels, like Pinterest. I’m so happy to combine my love of a well-turned phrase with my self-taught Photoshop skills (I’m old school and still use CS2!) into creating these little graphics. This particular quote by Benjamin Disraeli, which I found on The Positivity Blog, is very appropros for this inaugural post.
I admit, being proactive has not always been one of my fortes when it comes to certain things in my life.
Plagued with a touch of social anxiety and a whole lot of shyness, inaction can be the safe haven where I hunker down. But, when I do take action, even if it is just a small action, I almost always feel better. Dare I say happier for having done it?
It has been exactly five weeks since I announced that I would be writing a blog series. Yes, it has taken over a month to set pen to paper, so to speak, and write a post. And the simple act of typing this post – hearing the quick taps of the keyboard and feeling the wheels in brain turning – are making me perk up.
I am not going to reinvent the wheel and claim to solve your happiness woes (what an oxymoron!), but I will share my experiences and the stories behind my art.
