blueprint for happiness

What would it take for my life to be richer, more peaceful, happier?  After thinking about this for a few moments, I wrote down my blueprint for happiness – the things that I have the power to do that would enrich and deepen my life:

  • meditation/mindfulness practice
  • writing practice
  • reflection/contemplation
  • journaling
  • exercise/movement
  • time spent outdoors
  • time spent with people I love

This is all it would take for my life to feel rich and meaningful.  None of these things cost money.  None of them are hard to accomplish.  None out of my reach physically or mentally.  Time to dive in!

“I would like to do

whatever it is

that presses the essence

from the hour.”
