Make Time for Happy

Dorothy was a hoot!

I met her at a women’s retreat. She was wearing a beautiful cobalt blue blouse while she told me about her grandchildren.

When I complimented her on her blouse, she said, “Well, my hair color changed this month and I had to find something to match it. I usually mix different hair colors, but this month I ran out of all of them. So, I just mixed what was left of everything I had. Now my hair color changes every day!”

And then…she laughed. And shook her beautiful blue locks of hair.

Dorothy’s joy came through all weekend. She was a ray of sunshine. And a barrel of fun.

And here’s the deal …
Her life hasn’t always been a bed of roses. She’s like you. Like me. We’ve had moments that were good, not-so-good, and You’ve got to be kidding me!

And yet …
She’s watching for – and creating – great moments.
She’s looking for the joy and giggles, not just waiting for them to show up.

What a way to live, right?

Oh, friend, let’s do that too. Even on our really, over-the-top busy days, let’s squeeze out some fun. Find time to smile. Breathe deeply. See the humor. Take our mind on a “That was a fun time!” memory journey.

Life is short.
And life is good.

Let’s make time for happy.

And perhaps make some radical changes to our hair color. Just because.

You are Extraordinarily Significant!
