What is it that makes you happy? I am sitting here with my hand tingling from grabbing a stinging nettle earlier today, yet the day has been a quietly happy one.

It occurred to me that what makes us happy is what we choose to make us happy. Like seeing a thrasher in the branches above my head, or capturing this little busy fella during his brunch.

I get a really big kick out of successfully capturing these elusive hummingbird moths with my shutter click. Friends and family look at me strangely. Happy can come in all shapes and sizes.

Sometimes we can do something intentional to bring on those joyful endorphins. Other times we need to purposefully seize the spontaneous moment. Watching this little guy enjoy his floral snack gave me a happy.

How about you? Did you break loose and do something happy today?

Then share it with someone. It just might give them a happy moment too.
