While cruising in Hawaii with Wailua River guides, I asked my kayak guide, Annie, what her favorite part about living in Kauai was.
She smiled brightly and beamed, "I’m so rich here. I mean, I don’t have a lot of money, but my quality of life is abundant. I get to do what I love every day, and that makes me rich.”
Living a life you love is possible for everyone. My conversation with the happiest kayak girl in the world stirred up ideas of other happy people who practice happiness. People who have made happiness a habit and it beams from their pores. Because happiness is a choice and we can all cultivate it.
