Working on being happy has never been more important,
or more difficult. I am a fan of Neil Pasricha who wrote
The Happiness Equation. And I have a friend, very sick with
cancer that has metastasized who says,"happiness is a choice."
When we talked about it, I said that not everyone can get there.
But if you can work on being happy, what makes you happy?
Today there are tulips, and the red hearts I stuck up on the wall
for Steven, and thinking about making white hearts for our red
hallway. And a conversation with a funny friend. Oh boy, funny
is vital! And I am going to solve my long-in-the-works painting.
I am lucky to be able to make myself laugh.
If you are sad it's completely understandable. I send out hope
for you to feel happy again soon. I heard a conversation
recently saying that trying to be happy was a meaningless goal --
that if we're happy we won't work on solving the world's
serious problems, but I disagree. I think that without joy, we
won't have the energy to fix our problems.
Wishing you joy, happiness, optimism, fun in the Month of
