|These three friends are all pretty unique in flavour|
I feel like a hostage to creating these Happy Tiler peeps!
Truly they are nothing special...they just appear.
Even when I try to deviate by creating something else
they call on me to return! There are three to a page in
my art journal and each page has a bit of a story!
I photograph them, digitally cut them out and
mount them on a digital background! I am showing
six but there are so many! Each so individual!
I'm just going with it to see where it takes me!
|This is Gay she is still cold even though it's spring|
Recently as I peruse social media many bits of
seeming perfection and fun pop out at me!
As I scan the photos I wonder if they are truly happy!
Over the years I have seen many folks filling up on material
items and lavish events and I wonder if that sustains happiness
in their world. Upon inquiry, and over time I realize it's only
fun but doesn't always measure the contented soul.
Or true happiness!
|Guy has always hated his name and his nose!|
Fun can be a fleeting moment of happiness, sure!
However if happiness isn't at the foundation of
who you are then nothing can truly be fun enough,
|Kelsey is a dancer but feels she will never attain her dreams|
So many people today are chasing fun. Each of us has our
own measure of fun. For some it may be hiking in a desert,
which would be my nightmare. Add an "S" to that desert,
make it a dessert, at a quaint cafe with a side of intimate
conversation along with a coffee, and I'm all in!
My kind of fun/bliss! Scrabble too!
|Brandon is quirky and happy always looks for something new to learn|
Everyone enjoys different types of fun!
Years ago I gravitated to the beach,
lake or ocean, it was my momentary fun,
but more it was a comfort, a place
of solace when life wasn't the happiest!
For me water was always a conduit to

Can you truly have fun when you aren't happy?
I think you can, but it's a quick fix, a momentary high,
a diversion. It can't sustain joy or that content
feeling like true happiness does!
|Johnson is a creative peaceful soul who writes poetry|
I love the quote, " Do more of what makes you happy!"
I think the distinction between happy and fun would
needs to be defined to make that happen!
If you're happy when your kids are around and
they're always joking and laughing then it's fun.
However if they like to argue and fight that"s not
so fun, but having them around makes you
happy anyway! In that case happiness would
be your foundation to endure that!
|These three hang together and all have low self-esteem|
I still believe happiness can't be found in other people,
or things, or fun, it truly is a choice. I wasn't always happy.
It wasn't until I truly found what I love to do, and found
joy in the small everyday things that I found how to feel
happiness! It doesn't mean there aren't unhappy times.
There are...but when happiness is your foundation
it's easier to endure the hardships!
Do you need fun to feel happy?
What is your favourite kind of fun?
