Yet another snowstorm passed over Philadelphia yesterday and over the night leaving us with about a foot of snow. Yuck! The bad weather cut me a break though, giving me a "half day" schedule yesterday and off today, so I had some time to get safely back home and relax (or should I say, continue to work, just in the convenience of being at home). Anyway, I was happy to be around yesterday afternoon because I was able to watch Oprah, and luckily for me, the theme of the show was happiness!
The guest of the show was the adorable Goldie Hawn who is also very much into studying happiness and positivity. Goldie's smile and personality are enough to lift your spirits, but through the hour-long show, Oprah and Goldie talked with the audience about things in life that make us happy, the happiest city in America, the amount of income it takes to be happy, and the happiest jobs. You can get a recap of all of the info here.
I found a great quote that really summed up the whole episode and I thought it would be perfect to feature for today's post.
"Happiness is not a matter of good fortune or worldly possessions. It's a mental attitude. It comes from appreciating what we have, instead of being miserable about what we don't have. It's so simple?yet so hard for the human mind to comprehend."- Bits and PiecesNow before you go on to check out the link from Oprah's show, here are some pictures I snapped during yesterday's snowstorm! And if you're lucky enough to have escaped this storm, I envy you...enjoy the pictures!!
