These days I look at people around me, and everyone seems much more happy and upbeat. Spring and sun tend to do that to people, and I can feel it in my whole being.
I went for a long walk in the sun today. A lot of people swear to hiking in the mountains or in the woods. I like that also, but nothing is quite like the small city walks, where I can look at the beautiful gardens and houses, how people have orgianized their sweet little spots to withdraw from the stress of life for a bit.
It reminds me of my time in Montreal, one of my favourite cities. That feeling of discovering a narrow alleyway between the houses that would reveal an open spot for people who live there, with park benches and flowers. I just love it, it makes me happy:)
In my neighbourhood, the houses are not that close, but still, there are these small, almost hidden, spots, that looks like a little piece of heaven:)
I believe that happiness is not a permanent state of mind, happiness is an attitude. Happiness is how you choose to look at the things you encounter. Happiness is to find beauty in everyday and even trivial things. To find the contentment is just being, just knowing that you can breathe today.
