Here’s how to be happy on International Day of Happiness!

I’ve been on a quest to find joy in my life for a very long time.

What’s your secret to happiness?

OK, well here’s mine. It’s acceptance.

Acceptance of me.

Acceptance of you.

Acceptance of my experience of the solar eclipse that we watched over the village of Harrington, England (on a piece of land used by the US Air Force during WW2) this very morning.

In the past I would’ve worried that I wasn’t in the right place to get the best view.

That I ought to make the moment “mean something”

Today I was able to see the fun in wearing three pairs of sunglasses so we could gaze straight at that life giving orb in the sky and not be Blinded by the Light.

Well, I’ve just listened to one of my favourite songs from the 1970’s and didn’t realise that it contained words so appropriate for today.

“Mama always told me not to look into the sights of the sun.

Oh but mama, that’s where the fun is.”

eclipse!

What is your happiness secret? I’d love to know.
