Today's video inspiration comes from Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project and Happier at Home. Rubin has said that "the days are long, but the years are short," and I think there's a lot of truth to that. Although this video focuses on parenthood, I think it also serves as a reminder to all of us that our happiness should be found in the present. The future is important, of course, but so is today, and we should focus on the things that matter to us right now and enjoy each moment we have. I find that very inspiring.
What makes you happy? Are you focusing on those things today?
Many of you know that I'm a writer—a poet who enjoys writing haiku (another "h" word!). If you're interested in learning a bit more about types of haiku, please see my short post from last year's Blogging from A to Z Challenge. And once again, I want to let you know that my haiku for the Pulitzer Remix project is up at the site. You can find it here. Again, I'd like to thank those of you who have been reading and commenting. I know I say that every day, but your comments truly do mean a lot, and I appreciate them.
Wishing you all a beautiful Tuesday. Carpe diem! ☺
