Happiness

"People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be." Abraham Lincoln

Found this quote and it made me smile, a good one to ponder while walking along our local beach framed with Casuarina trees. Perfect for  sharing with Sky Watch Friday fans.

Just had to share this one - love that attitude !
Linked to Sarah's Good Life Wednesday for little peeks into other good things on any day of the week.

Saw these colorful flowers over on Maya's Completely Coastal and adding the link to fun and easy creations.

Beautiful .... lovely framed by the trees!

forgetmenot said...

I could be VERY HAPPY there--so serene and beautiful. Abe was "pretty much" right --you just have to set your mind to it.

Wren said...

Mr Lincoln knew what he was talking about. Still, Happiness doesn't require blue skies - but they are a wonderful morale booster. as soon as I saw your photo, I had to check your bio to see where you were. I'm ready to pack my bags for this beach!

that is indeed a quote to ponder and a beautiful photo.
