A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

Happiness is

something you decide on ahead of time.  Whether I like my camping locale or not doesn’t depend on how the picnic table or fire pit is arranged.

It’s how I arrange my mind.  I already decided to love it.  It’s a decision I make every time when I plan it, think of it, counting the months, weeks, days, hours, minutes.  I have a choice.  I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with 1) heat rash, 2) bug bites, 3) annoying smoker smoking right outside the ladies room early in the morning, 4) unsupervised 8-year-old taking a 45-minute shower while there were 3 impatient campers waiting…by the time I get my turn, hot shower no more…Or, simply get out of bed and be thankful for another day.

Each day is a gift. As long as my eyes open, I’ll focus on the new day and all the happy memories is stored away, just for this time of my life.

Old age is like a bank account.  I withdraw from what I’ve put in.  And I better deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories! Starting right now 😀

Thank you for your part in filling my Memory Bank.   I am still depositing.

Five simple rules to be happy:
Free your mind from hatred
Free your mind from worry
Live simply
Give more
Expect less

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
