The Gift of Happiness
Updated: Apr 17, 2020
The holidays are here! This time of year, we may feel drawn to go inward. As we enter the longest nights, it can feel natural to want to slow down. Our bodies and minds benefit from more sleep. I have found myself quite content going to bed earlier and surrendering to the season's energy.
This time of year is also one of activity. There are often Winter Solstice events and the festivities of Hanukkah and Christmas. There might be holiday travels or plans being made for spending time with family. And, of course, there is the sharing of gifts.
When I think about some of the best gifts I've received, I think of my husband, Tony, and my niece who has been like a daughter. I think about being able to live where I live and enjoy the local parks. I also think about people and books that have inspired me to live my best life. Each one of these things brings me joy, a sense of happiness.
When it comes down to it, isn't that what life is about? The 14th Dalai Lama said, “The purpose of our lives is to be happy.” Many of us have probably done a significant amount of work in our personal and spiritual growth. Even so, how often do we seek happiness from outside of ourselves? Are we putting the responsibility of our own happiness on our partner? Or do we think we'll be happy only if we have a better job or win the lotto?
A Butterfly Life is a book for enjoying more happiness. There are probably a number of books with tips for being happy. However, I believe you already know how to be happy; it's already within you. It's within each of us. A Butterfly Life is a story, a transformative journey, of simply remembering. It's about connecting with your inner wisdom and unfolding to your greatest potential.
