When we get what we want, we have that feeling of being satisfied. But what about when things don’t go as we would wish? It seems that we often let our circumstances define our satisfaction, which impacts our level of happiness. Perhaps we should take a different perspective and just appreciate and be satisfied with what we have in any situation. That contentment may be very satisfying after all and lead to deeper joy.

Bluebird of Happiness

B6B18BD9-358B-4AAA-AF30-00388C2BA131.jpegThe bluebird is a symbol of happiness, joy, delight, prosperity and good health. The Iroquois tradition says that they ward off the icy power of Sawiskera, the spirit of winter. They were originally coined the “bluebird of happiness” by Maurice Maeterlinck in his 1908 play. Even modern songwriters have portrayed bluebirds as muses. Some believe they bring messages from angels and the spirit world. Whatever the case, they are beautiful and like many things in nature, bring joy to our hearts. Don’t forget to celebrate National Bluebird of Happiness Day on September 24!
