This is pedominantly a picture post, happiness in pictures.
If you are open to light, the smallest things can make you smile and open your heart.
If you are in the depths of despair and dilemma, laughter is always a tonic no matter how fleeting.
I’ve always tried to find something funny in a dilemma, to laugh at, even in the darkest moments.
I have long known I am unusual for sure, but we can all find something we can cling to in the smallest of happenings, if we just let in the light and raise our awareness.
As a small child I would turn on the tap and quickly turn it off, it would astound me that water could come into my home. Daffodils and cotton tails of rabbits would fill me with joy.
Oh the innocence of children, However, I am still in awe of water and of nature in general. Nobody taught me that I should honour and save water, it was completely inherent.
It’s sad that in such a troubled world we need sometimes, to search for happiness. But please, never give up. In your dark hours look around for something to make that smile, a piece of nature, a picture, a memory, stroke a pet, get creative. It’s good for your facial muscles to smile and great for your soul.
…I digress, but here are some pictures I sourced from the wonderful and sometimes not so wonderful, world wide web.
I hope they spark a smile, let in the light, or better still re-ignite your fire, even if just for a moment. Because they are all smiles, joy and happiness, one way or another.

Often the times when we supposedly have the least, are the happiest times. In this world the ‘poorest’ people often seem to be the happiest. If you have nothing…you have nothing to lose. Also the least ‘well off’ are ALWAYS the most giving.
Ponder a while..
