MAMADEE's Blog: SP ~ Day 4959

Focus on Happy!

Be Happy With What You Have
While Working For What You Want

live minimally,
tell the truth,
never make excuses,
take time to listen,
don't hold grudges,
speak well of others,
choose friends wisely,
establish personal control,
dream big,
see problems as challenges,
nurture social relationships,
avoid social comparisons,
treat everyone with kindness,
don't sweat the small stuff,
accept what can not be changed,
avoid seeking approval from others,
express gratitude for what they already have,
eat well,
wake up at the same time every morning,
and get absorbed in the "Now"

So, what do you think?
What's it take to be happy?
If you do all the above will you be happy?
What if you did all but one thing above, could you still be happy?
What if you did half of the things above, could you still be happy?

The answers will be as varied as the colors of the rainbow!

As for me, on the home front, doing better, there's a glimmer of hope that all the problems that arose on Friday may have resolutions that work for all of us here at home! Still working them. We'll see what Monday brings. emoticon

Life is a grindstone!
Whether it grinds you down,
or polishes you up,
depends on you!

Today I worked on myself focusing on happy things. Things that might polish me up! emoticon There really was nothing more I could do regarding the problems at hand until Monday. So time to focus on something that didn't make me feel so emotional. If a beach were nearby, I'd have gone there. Since that's not possible, I puttered around with prepping some sewing that needs doing soon - have several items ready to go under the needle of the machine! I also re-organized some shelf space so it's easier for me to keep up with the paper records I need to track regularly. All in all, a day well spent and one ending on a happy note!

And with that...

Good night stars,
Good night air,
Good night noises everywhere,
Good night emoticons everywhere!

Til next time,
