Happiness is infectious.
Just the smallest thing can make us happy, like a baby’s smile or a puppy wagging its tail for the first time.
Love, laughter, and happiness is the way forward.
So to share the joy of happiness, here are some heartfelt stories. I’m sure they’ll make you smile!
Hearing the girl I liked accepting to be my girlfriend. It didn’t work out but I still remember I was the happiest dude alive, on top of the world. Before that I was so self-conscious but knowing that someone liked me enough to want to spend time with me in a relationship made me the happiest man and in general just confident with myself. Thanks to that though the relationship didn’t end well I don’t worry about self-esteem issues anymore.
I was having a pretty [terrible] week at work. I don’t usually stress at all, but on this particular evening I was feeling stressed. I get home and put the key into my front door and unlock it. The first thing I see is my oldest child (about 6 months old at the time) sitting on the floor of our living room. She turns and sees me, opens her mouth with the largest smile possible and gasps because she was so happy to see me. That one moment literally made everything bad that had ever happened to me completely leave my mind.
The best day actually happened just a couple of weeks ago. My three year old daughter walked over to me while I was sitting in my “Daddy’s Chair”. She asked if she could sit with me, so I picked her up and put her on my left side of my lap. Then my one year old boy didn’t want to be left out and grunted for me to pick him up, so he went on the right side of my lap. After about 10 min my wife comes over and kisses me on the cheek and says, “you three look great together”. It was at that moment, with both of my kids and my loving wife that I realized how wonderful life is. I would re-live that moment everyday of my life. It really is the small events in life that make it matter, until my son not 2 seconds later poops in his diaper and tells me, “Daddie, I stinky” and smiles at me…way to ruin the moment son!
