Your Go-To Happy Place, Now Available Online
That's why I love Robin Farr's post "Kiss Your Life" on the Just Be Enough blog. She writes, "Everyone bemoans Pinterest as the latest, greatest time suck...I do have a few boards that are my go-to happy places though, and they’re always good for a smile or some much-needed perspective." She explains how pictures of boats have always made her happy, how images infused with whimsy can brighten a bad day, and the quotation about living life deliberately that gets her through the hard times.
As Farr writes, "We all have a life we want to live – the life we think we should be living – and yet how many of us can say we’re actually living that life?... Figure out what’s missing in your life. Chase it. Catch it. Even if, for now, it’s just a picture to represent something you need more of."
We know the problems with our fast-paced, social-media-obsessed, txt-msg-wrld; there's always that suspicion that stepping away from all the flashing screens is the way to recharge. But sometimes the happy-place we need turns out to be what was right in front of us the whole time.
More moments of happiness:
Take a minute to be still
Love your life in 30 seconds
Smiles in unexpected places
