Happiness is a seed we sow

"Our happiness depends on the habit of mind we cultivate. So practice happy thinking every day. Cultivate the merry heart, develop the happiness habit, and life will become a continual feast."
` Norman Vincent Peale

So I'm trying to get back to my Meditation Monday posts. We'll see how well I stick to it! HA!

The quote above by Norman Vincent Peale is a great one to utilize during your meditation practice. About six or seven years ago, I discovered Peale when I was looking for a motivational quote to scribe onto an internal premium giveaway my workplace at the time was going to give away to employees. I can't remember the specific quote (different from the one above that I received the other morning through my daily quote e-mail), but it led me to Peale's book "The Power of Positive Thinking." It really helped me believe in myself when I worked in sales, and I saw how my thoughts shaped my life. It's been a while since I dusted off that book - may be a good time to reread it!

Let's use Peale's wisdom during our next meditation break. It's as simple as focusing on the word joy or happiness for a few minutes or thinking of a happy moment and allowing it to bring you to a better vibration. This photo of my baby girl might help you get into a better frame of mind.
