Not only did I feel the urge to take a picture of the first poppies in early Spring, but I also experienced a feeling of happiness. The great outdoors chase away all negative thoughts and make me feel as happy as a lark! For some people, happiness seems to be a wild goose chase. This is because they never realise that happiness lies in small things such as petting a cat, walking a dog, dreaming, helping others when they need our help, feeling grateful, smiling, having a good laugh at least once a day and , most importantly, counting our blessings. Springtime is the season in which nature wakes up and starts to grow after the long sleep of winter. This season as it progresses becomes a noisy but colourful affair. The first signs are the early spring flowers emerging out of the ground.
Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn’t know you left open. ~John Barrymore
Even if happiness forgets you a little bit, never completely forget about it. ~Jacques Prévert
