Episode 28

Now. What about the happiness we feel?

Today’s quote is titled:  NO ONE ELSE’S

Embrace your feelings of happiness. It is your experience…, and no one else’s. Only you can feel it. Share it with a hug…, unquote

Can you remember a time…, when you were not feeling happy…, and then being hugged by someone who was? Do you remember how you felt being in their arms? Do you remember being happy and hugging someone who was not? Do you remember how you felt? Do you remember feeling happy and hugging someone who was also happy? Remember how that felt? Have you ever been hugged by someone who just wanted to console you in a moment of sadness or despair? Surely, that person would not be feeling happy in that moment…, but instead compassionate or empathetic. In that moment of embrace…, peace, calmness and assurance is what is most needed and appreciated. It is not a moment of happiness, but it can be a moment that illuminates a path to happiness.

If you were near me right now…, I would give you a big hug. Right now… if you can…, hug someone…, or ask for a hug just for hugging’s sake. Imagine a mass giving and taking of hugs. Talk about sharing. Imagine what that could be like.

Tune in next time for the quote of the day…. It may be that one quote you are searching for…. That quote that ignites your passion and gears you up for achievement…, or…, it may be the quote that…, as you journey through life…, illuminates your path…, brings you peace…, love…, and happiness. Share what you find here with someone else. It may be a quote…, that for them…, may set them…, or keep them on a path to a better life.
