This is a beautiful day, a happy day. Why, well because I choose to be happy today. I know I am responsible for my own happiness and I know if I am happy it will contribute to others happiness. Also, today is my first child’s birthday. Ah, what a lucky man I am.
Today’s haiku is inspired by this wonderful day AND by a wonderful talk by Jonathan Foust.
May We Be Happy
Of all the choices
we have in ev’ry moment,
please choose happiness
