As we wrap up September’s foray into the “Art of Beauty” let’s take a moment to celebrate a deep seated love of the BSP, shall we? Ceramics is one of those art forms we have always admired and the love has only grown over the years. It is always such an honor to share artists with you who create perfect examples of beauty and sculpture and today is no different. In fact, today’s contributor brings the cream to the surface.

Ariel Zimman fell in love with clay in the third grade and turned that love into a life filled with art, beauty, love. RELM STUDIOS houses unique and beautiful handmade goods that speak of a brightness, a simplicity, a perspective that adds a brightness to the world. There is no exaggeration when I say I want every single one of these jars in every color of the rainbow. Look through the RELM STUDIOS catalog and find your own piece of brightness to hold onto.

RELM STUDIOS is giving away two ceramic mason jars (one will be a Pint and the other a half pint) to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question no later than Tuesday, October 7th.

Please visit RELM STUDIOS and tell us: What is the best piece of advice you have been given about happiness?

    I have followed a man named Shay Carl on youtube for the past 5 years and he has actually had quite a bit of good influence on my life. He says that happiness is a choice. It took me a while to realize that I have so much. Beautiful healthy children, a loving husband, a warm place to live and enough food to eat. Why should I be unhappy when life has dealt me a winning hand. I CHOOSE to be happy every day.

    The best advice about happiness I’ve been able to use in my own life is to be grateful. It just puts everything in perspective and I’m happy with the blessings that I have.

    Thanks for sharing the info about Relm Studios- I love their stuff!!!

    The best “advice” was from a woman from India who studies Gandhi.  She told me that people in India never talk about happiness.  It’s not a goal or a possession the way that it is here in America.  She said that happiness is collective – that when we flourish together, we feel happiness.  It is not something that is private.

    I have heard “do what you love and the rest will follow.” The older I get, the more comfortable I become with myself,  and the less I try to do or be like anyone else, the more these words come back to me–and boy are they the truth!

    the nester-“it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful”

    my home is a much happier place because of it.

    I read that book The Happiness Project, a few years ago, and the piece of advice that stuck with me was this: Make your bed. 

    It’s a small thing, but she says it makes the room more orderly which makes it easier to find things and feel calm in the morning, plus it’s a quick way to have a sense of accomplishment, which contributes to well-being. 

    Now, do I make my bed every day? I don’t. But her advice changed my perspective. I think of it as less of a chore that I’m doing because I hear my mom’s voice in my ear, and more as a potential mini-success that will start the day off right.

    “Happiness comes from inside. It’s the offspring of gratitude.” For me, this works.

    The best thing I’ve heard about happiness is that I’m the one that determines the amount of happiness in my life.

    The more time you spend outside in nature the happier you will be- it’s scientifically proven!

    you make your own happiness–don’t expect others to make it for you

    After watching the documentary “happy,” I realized that happiness must be actively cultivated and pursued–it doesn’t just come to you if you sit passively, but you can train your mind to become more happy.

    “you can’t please everyone.”  It’s really true.  Think about how much time you might have wasted trying to please people or worried about what others think.  We would be much happier if we made decisions based upon our own feelings and desires. 🙂 There will always be “haters”, so I decided a while ago to ignore the negative people in my life.  Learning to say no to people is okay as well.  This is a difficult one, especially if we’re in the business of people-pleasing. We overcommit, stretch ourselves too thin and become tired and unhappy!

    Happiness is borne of gratitude. My friend, recently diagnosed with MS, transformed from mourning for the lost possibilities of her life (children, career) to ecstatic happiness after writing letters of gratitude to her friends on one of many sleepless nights. She’s an example to me of hope and happiness borne of looking outward and giving thanks!

    My mama always told me that I am responsible for my own happiness. She said that once I am a harbinger of my own happiness, I can effectively share it with others and be the proverbial light in the darkness for whoever needs it.

    my father told me to always follow my heart and it will lead you to true happiness

    “If you’re not grateful for what you already have, what makes you think you’d be happy with more?”
    I read this. And then I READ this. At first it sounded a bit callous to me… but if you really think about it, it is profoundly true. If we keep chasing happiness, only to have it elude us because we are then on the next chase… it’s all in vain. I’ve learned that contentment, gratitude, and happiness all go hand in hand.

    These jars are AWESOME! If I were to win one, I’d be sending it straight to my little sister, who has a deep love of canning jars. The pop of color inside the white shell is just perfect for my colorful sister who embraces life to the fullest.

    And really, that’s the thing about happiness to me. Seeing this prize, my first thought was of someone else, and knowing how delighted she’d be is what made me happy. I am not always thinking of others first (especially when I’m tired, cranky, or hungry), but when I do, my own happiness increases exponentially. I love to do what I can for others and to witness how I’ve impacted their lives.
