I often wonder what makes a person truly happy....

The Simple Things
by: Shelby Peterson :)

I often wonder what makes a person truly happy..

Is it there relationships with family & friends?
Is it their spiritual relationship??
Is it personal possessions & wealth?

OR IS IT JUST...
The simple things in life?

  

I have been on both sides of the spectrum...

*I remember being a teenage mom & being very poor...
but I felt very Happy...
(I had an adorable healthy son and I was hopeful for our future)



*I have also been "well-off" with new homes, new cars, beautiful clothes and at times
I didn't feel happy...
I was searching, longing for something to make me happy! 


I soon found out that trying to fill a void with "things" will not get you anywhere.
I tried to change the way I lived by:
~build lasting, meaningful friendships,
~ concentrate on my family and my marriage
~write and express my thoughts
 &
 ~and most importantly build a  "spiritual relationship" that I was proud of!


Just Learning to Enjoy the Simple things...
Like a walk in the woods on a beautiful Fall afternoon :)
Just a boy & his dog...


Sometimes I feel that in Life we expect this "picture perfect life"
and once "we think we get there"
we are disappointed because we may have not reached complete happiness!

Searching for Happiness is Continual...
but I have found that my true happiness comes internally
from
THE SIMPLE THINGS :)


HAVE A HAPPY DAY!
LOVE,
SHELBY
