Stay Afloat

Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight
for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even
travel around the world looking for it. You have to
participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your
own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of
happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it.
You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward
into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.

  1. I love Elizabeth’s words and I read her book, too. I FEEL these words. And what a peaceful travel photo to accompany it. It seems you always know exactly what to share and when. I’ll stay afloat my friend! I hope peace and love make your day! Hugs and blessings, dear friend. 💛

  2. I so enjoyed this post, dear Eddie. Great way to start my day. Words so pure and true, and this river photo, gorgeous. A good reminder in this photo of the alligator who can make one’s happiness a little tricky if we are not vigilant. i hope your day is a gem, my friend.

    • Some days do present challenges.
      Sometimes they are alligators. We’ll get though them Jet, and smile wider, because of them. Thank you very much for your kindness dear friend! enjoy your day! Eddie

kindness is always welcome
