When I was a little whippersnapper in the cornfields of Waldron, IN, I listened to frequent exclamations of, "You're weird!" This would be in response to the fact that I laugh at almost nothing. I amuse myself endlessly. Something as small as my own tomfoolery never fails to make me cackle like a hyena. The big stuff in life gets me all jazzed too, like all the traveling I will do this year. Most of us get REALLY happy about the upcoming spring season! HOT DAWG!!
These are all external circumstances, though. Happiness is best when it percolates contentedly inside you regardless of your exterior world. In
Nicheren Buddhism (my particular flavor of this philosophy), this is called absolute happiness. This type of emotion derives from trusting yourself and the Universe, knowing that your obstacles are learning opportunities enabling you to keep growing as a human. Absolute happiness is also fostered by knowing that you have everything you need inside you to surmount any hardship and transform it into a source of good. Not always easy to remember or apply, but I can usually boost my mood by simply focusing on that. I also remind myself that this may be my last day on earth in this body-do I really want to be a cranky poohead over something that won't matter this time next year?

So, where is your happiness originating? If you need to find more inner generated juju, let’s talk.
From my Blog "Can I Get a “HELL YEAH!!” for the Joys of Being Yourself?"
