  1. My favorite is “Always be a little kinder than necessary.” As someone who works with the public always going that extra step can really make a difference in someones day.

    1. Rebecca that is too true! I love working with the public and strive to make each person feel attended to and appreciated. It makes a HUGE difference, doesn’t it? The best part is that kindness tends to be contagious.

      1. Exactly! I love interacting with someone who is very hesitant and unsure of what to do at first, but by the end is having a wonderful time.

  2. “‘Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.’ – Mahatma Gandh”i Plenty of wisdom in this simple way of living your life!

  3. Awesome list! I also believe that happiness is a decision. We all have lots of crap to deal with in life, and some people have way more than others, but we can all learn to appreciate the glimmers of goodness in life and try to expand them to the best of our ability.

  4. Reblogged this on Petite Bites of Life and commented:
    I love this! So nice to see happy people! Life can get too fast and we forget to be happy in the moment and keep searching happiness in the some days ahead.
    I am grateful for the happiness I found in my day today.
    Have you found yours yet?

  5. Succh excellent quotes – I really enjoyed reading these. I particularly love this one… “There’s no better feeling than making somebody smile.” It’s so true 😀

  6. Happiness can be found even in the darkest times. If only one remembers to turn on the light (Albus Dumbledore)

    Happiness is a decision. You are as happy as you decide to be (unknown)
