Writers Quote Wednesday – HAPPINESS

22 Jun

Hello and welcome! This will be a brief post because I just got back from the dentist and I’m not in the best of moods. Ironically, today’s theme/prompt is happiness. Well, in all truth I’m a happy person, but even cheerful people have bad days. Later on I’ll be visiting some of the blogs participating in today’s challenge and I’m sure that will cheer me up.

Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge is sponsored by Colleen Chesebro of Silver Threading and Ronovan Hester of Ronovan Writes. Anyone can participate by choosing a quote by a favorite writer then, write a short piece of flash fiction or poetry to share with us all. You can include photos, photo quotes, or anything else that helps to highlight your quote. Have fun with it! This week’s theme chosen by Ronovan is HAPPINESS.

Many people rely on others to make them happy or on material things. No amount of money or possessions will give you happiness because happiness comes from within. Your happiness is your responsibility and only you have the ability to create happiness for yourself. With that in mind check out the following quotes.

“Happiness is not the amount of money you have but the people in your life that help you to create wonderful memories.”

    Great quotes Vashti.
    I couldn’t agree with you more @No amount of money or possessions will give you happiness. I’ve tried. It didn’t work. hahaha. These things just leave you wanting more. Unsatisfied. With a hole.
    I hope you are feeling much happier by now, my friend.
    Please have a great rest of the week.
    🙂 ❤

      Hi Staci! Thank you for the sweet wishes for me. ❤ I'm feeling much better today. I tend to get over things quickly. It's easy to see that $$$ is not the answer, since so many wealthy celebrities turn to drugs and commit suicide. They have everything money could buy but are obviously not happy. My goal is to make enough money to live without fear and to help my family. That's enough for me. 😀 xx

      Hi Jaye! I have a phobia of the dentist but I still go twice a year, because like you said, ‘it’s a necessary evil’. I had to do a little more than a cleaning, so it was especially unpleasant this time around, but I’m over it. Thank you sweetie! 😀 xx

    Does happiness have to be a conscious choice? Should it not flow naturally … That is the beauty of a child. 😊 getting a little philosophical. There are some days when we must choose to be happy when the world tells us otherwise. Always be happy dear friend xx

      Hi Yolanda! You make a great point. I think expressing our inner child more often is one of the secrets of true happiness. And I also agree that some days we do have to choose to be happy. I’ll always be a kid at heart––I can’t help it. You stay happy too, lovely! ❤ xx

      Hi Colleen! I feel so much better today. Thank you for the hug and kind wishes. Aww, you’re very welcome.
      I was looking at Hugh’s (Hugh’s News and Views) video of the 2016 Bloggers Bash and it looked so exciting and fun. I wish we had something like that here. I would love to meet you and so many other awesome online friends. 😀 ❤

        I know. The distances we would all have to travel would boggle our minds and our pocketbooks! Even in the state of Florida think how much travel would be involved. The UK has it so much easier with trains, etc. I wonder if they realize how BIG America is! LOL! It would be nice though! ❤ Maybe when I am independently wealthy! I would love to meet you! We might have to skype! LOL! Glad you are feeling better today. Hugs to you Vashti!

        You’re right, Colleen. Even in Florida we would have to drive for miles to see each other but I think it would be worth doing someday. There’s nothing like real face to face interaction. Thank you! Hugs & Kisses ❤

    Vashti,

    I agree with all the quotes you’ve chosen. Great job! Happiness is a choice for all of us. Better to go through life smiling rather than frowning.

      Exactly! It takes just as much effort to frown as it does to smile, so why not choose a happy face? Thank you, my friend! 😀 xx
