Happiness Is...


Do you know up from down?  
When you look down, your head follows, your body slumps.  You can't see where you're going.  You're vision narrows because you're not focusing on what's around you, only the ground at your feet.   And maybe that ground is wrong.  Your thoughts start to follow in the same downward direction, and eventually, you find yourself feeling lost and unhappy.  
But when you look up, don't you see how your eyes sparkle?  Your body becomes open to receive, and suddenly, you notice all the beauty that surrounds you. There isn't just one path anymore; only infinite sky and your soul with wings.
So look up more.  Up is hope.  Up is light.  Up is happiness.

What fantastic words. Another upside to looking up is it helps your posture and thus makes you look taller, full of confidence and thus more attractive!

Are those your real eyelashes? SWOON!
