Happiness is - in the simple things ....

This week's Inspiration Avenue team challenge was "Happiness is..."  

I've found that no matter what I've got going on in my life, if I make time to stop and notice the beauty around me, I feel happier :)

PS there's always beauty around everyone - if ever you can't see it, you just need to alter your perspective slightly! :)

  9. Find Alice's Restaurant and listen to it!! It's a monologue from around 1968. It's about 20 minutes long. It is such a good time! But keep in mind that this was the age of hippies and the Vietnam war.

    I think it's a national treasure!
