Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy

As we are entering our sixth week of social distancing and our fourth week of shelter-in-place in Minnesota, I would like to share this quote with you as inspiration for the week ahead.

“Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.”

Guillaume Apollinaire, French poet, playwright, short story writer, novelist and art critic

Maybe now is just such an opportunity for pause. There’s plenty of time to get back to the rat race soon enough.

For now, I remind myself to be grateful for healthy family and self, food on the table, roof over our heads, and not living in a war zone or under an oppressive regime. And Netflix.

Stay healthy and happy!
