As this is posted, it’s the International Day of Happiness, where we focus on the things in life that lift us up. And those things can be quite simple, too – as simple as hearing a song you love on the radio. I’m proud, privileged, and so pleased to have been invited to join a group of people from different walks of life to share what happiness means to them.
If you’d like to know what we think, please pay me a visit at Parizad and Prashant Trikannad at their excellent site, Pocketful of Happiness. While you’re there, do have a look around. You’ll find some thoughtful, inviting, and interesting posts on the simple things in life that can mean so much to us.
*NOTE: The title of this post is the title of a song by Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler.

I loved, Margot how you differentiated between happiness and joy and appreciated mindfulness in your response, something I need to work on. Mindfulness keeps me from making regretful mistakes by acting too impulsively.
Thank you, Carol. I’m so glad you enjoyed the piece. And mindfulness is something I think we all have to work on; I know I do. Taking that little extra time is so much worth it, once we learn the skills.

Margot, thank you very much for sharing our Happiness story as well as for your kind words about our website. Both Parizad and I were delighted and privileged to have you on board and feature your views on happiness, which you contributed at short notice. Our very best to you.
Thank you for the kind words, Prashant. It was a a privilege to be a part of your story, and I am more than happy to spread the word about your site. All the best to you, too!
Will check those links out tomorrow when I’ll have a bit more time than I’ve had for a day or two. I find myself becoming more spiritual these days (as opposed to religious) and I think it’s making me more mindful of a ‘lot’ of things. Look forward to hearing your thoughts.
Thanks, Cath. I hope you’ll enjoy what you read when you get there. And I know what you mean about being more spiritual and, therefore, more mindful. I think that happens as you go through life and get wiser.
