Being Happy

Watch this short and profound video. I watched it here on Lori-Lyn's blog "The Dream Life" and felt compelled to---yes, again---lift it right from her blog and republish it here. It is only 1:15 long. I looked up a little bit about Brother David Steindl-Rast who I'd never heard of before and was delighted to find out more about such a wonderful spiritual teacher. His website is gratefulness.org.

Thank you Olivia, I love to be reminded, always, of the need to be grateful.

And now I ask a favour - do you know the link to your post where you quoted a poem called 'I Am Enough'? I have looked in your categories and can't seem to find it. I loved the poem and I thought I'd cut and pasted it but can't find it in all my docs either (!) I would love to read it again - I need it today.

Thank you for your help O.

Me again! I don't mean I need you to find it today! (bad wording - sorry, there is no pressure :) I just felt the need for the inspiration.

thank you x

Olivia--I love this quote from the good Brother, transcribed from this video: "...joy is that happiness that doesn't depend on what happens."

Once again (see column on the left) Rick has come to the rescue! Thank you, sir! (I initially typed "sire" :), I just woke up.)

Thank you Patti, Rick and Chani, for this discussion...a wonderful way to start the morning remembering all of this...

I hope you each have a great day remembering that we each are enough!

Love,

O
