Expressing it

Yellow Roses from Jeff, June 2003

Jeff gave me these “thank you” roses at his promotion in June, 2003.

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”
William Arthur Ward

We all feel happy when someone appreciates us, but did you know there is an even better way to feel happier instantly? Take a look at the video below.

I’d like to introduce you to Misifusa’s blog, one of the first I discovered on WordPress.  Her cheerful, happy posts have been an inspiration to me.  Specifically, I want to share with you a post of hers that was published on November 29.  It’s directly related to the quote above.  Her post appears below, unchanged except that it’s in blue, to distinguish her words from mine:

An Easy Way to Increase Your Happiness!    Nov29

Do you want to know the secret of how to increase your happiness quotient, increase someone else’s at the same time and make a difference in both of your lives the easy way?  How about if I told you that you could learn in less than 8 minutes?  Do you have 8 minutes to learn?  Well, without further ado…

My dear friend RoSy blogged this awhile back ~  check out her blog!   It made such a difference in my day that I knew I had to repost it for you!  I adore what I do which is connecting with others via my blog, my cards and my FB page (besides just meeting people in real life!).  I am a big proponent of telling people how I feel and for feeling that gratitude in sharing how blessed I feel to have so many wonderful people in my life!

I hope it made you smile and perhaps even changed your way of thinking!  If you are looking for more happiness in your life, this is the answer…baby steps to a happier you ~ and in turn, making someone else happy as well!

Shine On!


P.S.  Thanks RoSy ~ I’m grateful for you! xo

All sorts of folks

This post was first published seven years ago today. The original post, comments and photo are linked, along with two other related posts, below. These links to related posts, and their thumbnail photos, do not appear in the blog feed; they are only visible when viewing the individual posts by clicking on each one. I have no idea why, nor do I know how they choose the related posts. That’s just the way WordPress does things.


  1. Thank you, Julia! I just shared the video on Facebook. I hope it helps a lot of people! It has already helped me. 😃

    • Thank you Susan! I’m so glad it helped you, and I hope it continues to help others as well.
