Happiness is…

I am happy when I am here typing.

I am happy when I am reading good books.

I am happy when I am feeling high energy, like after a workout.

I am happy when I think that my projects are going forward.

I am happy when I am doing my fundies daily.

I am happy when my space is clean and orderly.

I am happy when I have a felt sense that I am growing.

I am happy when I am feeling that I am inspiring other people to live their best lives, or to live better lives.

I am happy when the things I write inspire people and make them feel good about themselves and motivate them to contribute.

I am happy when I feel excited about the prospect of something new on the horizon.

I am happy when I am living in integrity; when what I think, feel, say and do are all in alignment.

I am happy when the sky is blue and the sun is warm.
I am happy when there is peanut butter toast and sweet cherries for breakfast on the first day of July when the sky is blue and the sun is warm.
I am happy today.

Peanut butter toast, sweet cherries and coffee

I’m a small town yoga teacher who says motherfucker a lot. I hate anything woo. I’m into neuroscience. And facts. I’ll lead the chanting of “om” sometimes, but it makes me feel awkward. I want to access flow states. As far as yoga helps me do that, I’m into it. Dopamine is my fave neurotransmitter. Don’t tell anyone I told you this.
