The Underrated Duty

“There is no duty we so much underrate as the duty of being happy. By being happy we sow anonymous benefits upon the world.”~by Robert Louis Stevenson

I read this in Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach. It made me think “am I happy” or “do I just have happy moments?” I believe that I have happy moments but contentment is probably where I am at most of the time.

A piece of Happiness

I will continue to read this book daily to work on me getting back to happy as a norm instead of a moment at a time.

How about you, are you content or happy?

Thanks for visiting!
