Is there a word that makes you happy? For me it is rather simple: Walk.
I hear that magical phrase, “let’s go for a walk” and I am one happy puppy. Turns me inside out with joy. The familiar sounds of my leash coming off the hook and I’m racing to meet you at the front door.
So what makes you happy? Is it an unexpected compliment? A note of appreciation? A spontaneous cup of coffee with a friend? (A book contract?) There are a million ways that a day can be brightened by a random act of kindness.
Let me turn that question around. So what are you doing to bring joy to others? Surprise a friend today. Give ‘em a compliment. Pat ‘em on the head. Give ‘em a treat. And if you’ve still got time, invite ‘em for a walk. See you at the front door!
