I saw a guy today, whose T-shirt read:
and my heart leaped with joy (needless to say, I believed the T-shirt!) He was working in the garden I so often walk through on my way, and for a stretchy little second I thought: »is he happy because he works in this garden, in this sunshine, in these latitudes on this day, or does he work in this garden, in the sunshine, on this longtitude, this day, wearing a t-shirt that says I Love Life because he is happy?« ...
I think it was Abraham Lincoln that said our attitude determines our happiness, not the other way around (I completely put this in my own words but you get the idea)...so I bet he loves life and that is what gives him joy from working in his garden. I bet he gets joy from whatever he's doing. I hope to one day be able to manage to live this way. *sigh*ReplyDelete
Peace & Love,
This reminds me of the time when I was young and I asked my dad how come every piece of music I listened to at the time were all beautiful and my dad simply answered that 'It's because you are happy, that's why'ReplyDelete
And I think it's true :-)
