The hardest lesson in happiness is one I was told long ago, and it took me a decade of working at it to really incorporate it.

"Choose to be happy."

I am a naturally negative and pessimistic person, which serves me well in my job, but not always in my personal life. Simply choosing to be happy, and to be happy about the little crap now works for me. My jealous streak has mostly faded, and I am content to have my lot in life, more have less than have more so who am I to want more?

A cup of good coffee first thing in the morning.....followed by a good bowel movement.

Please tell me that you get out of bed first!!!












Truth is; you can't be happy all the time. You have to be sad sometimes just in order to be able to be happy.
But if something gets me down I know what to do.
I take it out and shoot it full of holes.

It is very therapeutic.

For me at least.

The serenity prayer.
Good friends.
Marveling in the beauty of the natural world.
Steering clear of karmic debt.
The malty goodness of a fine imperial stout.

Toker Villain,

Could you come over here to do a little therapy by shooting a Mountain Lion full of holes for me?

It will increase my own happiness very much. We have a Big cat roaming in our neighborhood. It's been a real bummer, especially for Loki and the kiddo. Neither of them understand that the reason they can't play in the yard anymore is... I am just not allowing the two of them to be cat food.

Hey, sometimes the right guy with a gun can be your best friend.

Unfortunately, the other side of the coin ain't so pretty.

Ron is probably the former.

A higher purpose in life. Could be collecting stamps or whatever, but you got to be pursuing a dream.
