Accidental Happiness: Chinese Lantern Festival
Off on a business trip and stopped in Spokane, WA to see a friend and it turns out will get to see two, so an auspicious day to start with. One of my friends says to me you should go check out the Chinese Lantern Festival down on the river after dark. She made a great call on that one and below are a set of pictures that show just how right she was. The festival was beautiful and a little bizarre, the river walk was quite nice.
But what the heck does this have to do with living a happier life? The answer is a very simple little suggestion on how to be happier and that is to be open. For a second after my friends suggestion I was heading towards blowing it off, we get these types of suggestions all of the time. But tonight, I decided to say yes, to be open to trying something out. Sure, it’s not like I climbed a mountain or anything but the concept is the same. Be open, be available, be willing to say yes when you might ordinarily say no, it might lead to something wonderful, like a Chinese Lantern Festival. Enjoy the photos and have a happy day my friends. ~ Rev Kane
