Have you ever heard of the quote “Happiness is a Warm Puppy” before? If so, have you ever thought of what the quote really means? It's a nice sounding quote that creates a warm and fuzzy feeling inside… but i've always wondered what the author of the quote, creator of Charlie Brown and “Peanuts” cartoonist, Charles Schulz really meant.
Well, here's a great explanation I found from Post Consumers that I really liked (true or not…) and wanted to share with you all!
“Happiness is a warm puppy” is, essentially, a way of saying “Happiness is simple.” That, we think, is so, so true. Happiness and satisfaction isn’t something that you climb up to by acquiring more things and more status and, well, just more. Satisfaction is a moment that you experience with whatever your “warm puppy” is. Maybe, for you, it’s actually a warm puppy. Perhaps it’s a moment of quiet on a backyard swing. Watching your family eat dinner. The smell of cookies that you just baked. The feeling at the end of a long run.
There are so many things that could be your “warm puppy.” The key is to grab on to those moments and those things and understand the satisfaction of experiencing them instead of allowing yourself to believe that satisfaction is something you constantly have to be acquiring and working towards. Find the satisfaction of enough. Find your warm puppy!
Don't you love this explanation? It's so, so true. This really may be the secret to a happy life after all. Now, go out there and find your warm puppy!! 🙂
