Happiness is in the Heart of the beholder....

So I am going off a random thought for today and blogging about it. And yes I know the saying is "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." But for all extensive purposes the saying I am using fits just perfectly!

So my random thought, Last night we were looking through some of Leslie's pictures from Africa and I stated how big the kids were smiling from the orphanage, I said it is amazing they have next to nothing and they are still so happy! When we as Americans have so much and still find that from time to time are dissatisfied! So I got to thinking and reflecting upon my own life! There have been times in my life that I have been miserable, lost, confused, alone (even though I was never really alone, just didn't know God at the time and didn't realize that he was always there).
I still found/find myself at times not being 100% happy! I am selfish! I have so much! I have the best most awesomeness Lord and Savior ever! I have a wonderful Hubby who I couldn't and wouldn't want to live without! Two beautiful boys who mean the world to me! And with all those blessing's that I have I still found/find myself wanting more, or not being completely happy! I am now giving myself a proverbial slap in the face! I am now experiencing true happiness to it's fullest! I haven't felt more refreshed in my life! I feel like my whole ho hum attitude has held me back for way too long! I can't and wont allow it to hold me back any longer! Happiness is an inward feeling shown outwardly! If you have true complete happiness on the inside people will see it radiate from you on the outside! That is what I want people to see when they see me! A God fearing, extremely happy woman!

And on another random note, My hubby left me an I love you note in my lunch he packed for me this morning! Life is good!
