Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions going from contentment to intense joy.
I had a shoot at Holcomb Garden on Butlers campus, never been before so grabbed some grub, a recently woken soul, cheez-its & hit the middle most grassy point and sat. Watching people come and go. Small chatter of birds. The freshly dampened grass from the early morning. The screaming laughter of children.
Watching this little one run and play topped off the early afternoon. She was full of happiness. So simple, so innocent.
I used to cringe when someone would say, ‘Everything is going to be OK’. To me, its what you say when you don’t know what else to say in a difficult situation. After several difficult situations the words became meaningless.
Everything will be OK in the end. Its true. Life isn’t what we dream. Nor what others dream for us. Things don’t always go as we plan them. But in the end, we are where we need to be, with what we were meant to have.
Catch what we’re thrown. Love what we’re given. Enjoy moments. Most importantly the small moments. Those are the ones that pierce the heart.

Oh Chan….! I read your post and nearly lost it. I love you so much! I laugh at the fact we took the same photo of each other. Its perfect!
You’re right. Today was great! Something we both needed. I’m glad that I can be there, that you call/text me when you need something. The world can chew you up, spit you out, it can be easy or harder than hell, some days you’ll want to give up while other days you’ll laugh at the thought of giving in. No matter what, I’m here, I’ll always be here & never sell yourself short. Never regret anything. Your amazing. You’ll succeed and be wonderful.
Thank you for being my saving grace & role model. I love you!
Everyday is a new day. A new start. Another end. We can take the opportunity and use it to the fullest.
I love sharing my work. Everyday I share my work with someone close to me. Its what we do, Photo of the Day. It’s my way of expressing me. Thank you. For all that you do. You’ll never know what you mean to mean or how you’ve made this easier.
A smile everyday!
