i found the secret to being happy

Sunday, December 23, 2012

This mornimg i woke at 4:30 and no matter what i did i couldnt get back to sleep again. So i feel as if i have been up ages.. and done a whole days jobs before anyone else in the house got up. Plus my chair dancing and Keiko got some special time as well. ( she is far more happier today , and i hope that she will not gulp at things that drop on the floor again after the poached egg incident. ) The only trouble with starting this early is that my body gets out of sync and i get worn out by 2 pm /3pm.
I had the best christmas present the other day of my daughter visiting and stopping for dinner, she has grown up so much in the past year and i am so proud of her. She was working out her budget as to whether she would be able to keep her house on if her flat mate moved out , when she finishes Uni, ( thankfully she will) Gone are the days when she used to spend all her money on clothes and makeup and she is now a beautiful and confident young lady. She is loving her job in the bank and seems to have blossomed in a beautiful flower.
Talking of flowers my orchid has started to bloom again.....this will be the third year i have had it in flower.. a record for me as i used to kill houseplants quite easily, but somehow this one survives on the minimum of care.
My calorie , protien and potassium and carb intake was low yesterday..:( i think having the constant sipping of water has made me not hungry and i found it hard to want to eat anything. maybe a water bottle was not a good idea.
have a good sunday all

    I find that I am happy/contented more often than not, I still whine about lots of things, but, most of my wanting is for something sweet or salty in the evening.
My life is still bumpy, but I find that I can ride those bumps better than I ever vould before emoticon

    the water bottle was still a good idea love even if some of your nutrients were down abit,a banane and a piece of cheese or turkey will soon cover your calories,protien and potasium so go for it and keep taking the water. emoticon

    For me, the secret to being happy isn't a bad memory - I actually find that to be rather frustrating. (Dang, I wish I could remember his/her name.... Where the heck did I put my keys?... Why did I come to the living room?...)

For me, the secret is thankfulness!

Merry Christmas!

    I am glad you enjoyed time with daughter!! That is truly the best gift spend time with our children and see how they have grown in to fine young adults. For them to be healthy and happy...just make us the same..
Be blessed and thank you for sharing!!
