Day 1676: The gate to happiness 

Tea is one of my gates to happiness. Yesterday’s teabag told me the gate to happiness is …


… self-compassion. 

My gates to happiness also include:

  • significant relationships,
  • therapy groups, and 
  • observing what’s around me. 







A gate to happiness for me and Oscar would be a child-proof gate for those deck stairs going down to the street. 

What are your gates to happiness?

Another gate to happiness, for me, is singing songs I love. I plan to sing along to Pat Metheny playing “A Lot of Livin’ To Do” tomorrow night at an Open Mic. 

I’ll let you know on Saturday whether I made it out of the starting gate. 

Happy thanks to all who helped me create this Gate-to-Happiness post and to you — of course! — for entering this blogging gate today.
