Good morning Mintdom,

I am living in a little frozen Mint world today.  Yesterday, we got about 5 or 6 inches of snow.  I worked from home most of the day, and today, I will do the same.  It was actually good for me as I got a lot accomplished, and I am looking forward to getting a lot more work done today. The only distraction I had was Minty.  The snow is good for Minty too as she loves playing and eating it; we are both happy!

“The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet.” – James Openheim

I have been thinking about happiness lately and I have a couple of questions for you:

Do you consider yourself happy?

Do you think that happiness is genetic?

My mom says that she thinks that I was born happy. I rather think that it is a choice.  I search on Google for the answer and found several articles (just a few are listed below for your reading pleasure) on this topic.  Before I give you my opinion on this topic, I would love to hear what you think about the topic, and the two questions. Please feel free to share your thoughts here .  I am sure that you will have many interesting things to say.

AffirMINTion: I am a happy person

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!

A Mini Minty MoMINT

My mom says… I am the happiest creature that she knows, and I LIKE it!

Life is Minty Fresh!
 

Happy Minty

xoxo

  1. Yea I am happy! I am very fortunate to have good genes and a good upbringing! I do agree though there have been times that I was struggling and I had to choose to make my situation better by changing my attitude or outlook. One thig that makes me happy is reading Mintdom! Thanks Deborah and Minty for making my mornings so special! Life is Good!

  2. Ah the different levels of HAPPY! I’ve visited many. Looking forward to reading the articles you posted on the subject Deb! And Nancy is spot on –> MINTDOM is a daily happy-boost for sure!xo!

  3. From Lauren L. – I think happiness is influenced by both nature and nurture, however, we can do our best to be either more happy or more solemn.

    Hope you are coping with the snow. It was really heavy shoveling it this morning! Whew!

  4. You made me think upon this today Deb. One of the things I’ve concluded is that when I feel grateful I feel happy. ❤
