Weekly Photo Challenge: Happiness is Nothing But a State of Mind


“Happiness is nothing but a state of mind which only your thoughts and beliefs could place you in.” ― Edmond Mbiaka

The Weekly Photo Challenge is State of Mind.

Today we went to look at land for sale on the Pacific Coast with our son and soon-to-be daughter-in-law. On the land there was a deep, dry well. It is the dry season and everything is parched, brittle, and brown.

We gathered around the deep well and our dreams began to flow of what we could do if we owned this piece of land. Some would say pessimistically that when the well is dry, it is time to stop dreaming. But, my family believes in dreams and adventure.

Find the thing you want to do most intensely and do it with all your might. When the well is dry, it is only a state of mind that can be overcome with purpose and optimism. Happiness is our state of mind, which we found in the bottom of the deep, dry well.

Where do you find happiness?

  1. I totally agree that happiness is a state of mind. We can choose to be happy and make the best of our circumstances, or not. It’s entirely up to each one of us. There can always be optimism in everything.

    I think the old, dry well is intriguing. Seeing that would certainly get my imagination working.

I'd love to read your ideas and thoughts below....
