Happiness

June 6, 2009

Life needs to be shaken up now and then.

If you want something to happen, you have to make it happen.

You should do something you love every single day, whether it’s as simple as drinking a cup of coffee and taking an hour and a half to watch a Disney movie [raises hand: me!] or as complex as taking a step further in the search for world peace.

You should have goals.  You should work toward them.

You should run a mile or two or climb a mountain every now and then.

You should volunteer to do something you’re scared to do.

You should take chances.

You should listen to the music your friends tell you to, because sometimes they’re right.

Live music and live theatre is a must.

Baseball games + beer + hot dogs.  Enough said.

You should fall in love.

You should smile at a stranger.

You should leave a penny face up on the sidewalk.

You should take a picture of the sunrise, even if you have to stay up all night to see it.

You should work for what you have, never expect handouts;  don’t be afraid to accept help when you really need it.

You should listen to your whims.

You should live.

You should thrive.

You should never be bored.

    This post. Love it. It makes me want to do them all, although I must say I’m rather good at smiling at strangers :)
