Happy For No Reason

As you know from a previous post, I’m an avid book reader…actually book junkie.    I usually have open several books at a time and I love doing this.    Last week on my bookshelf, I picked up this great ‘feel good’ book:   “Happy for No Reason:  7 Steps to Being Happy from the Inside Out” by Marci Shimoff with Carol Kline.  I just finished reading the chapter Live a Life Inspired by Purpose.

101 Simple Pleasures

My day focuses on my ‘To Do’ list…how much can be completed before I tuck myself into bed.   Can you relate to this?    I’ve decided there will always be too much to do.  The question is “what am I doing?”  

What I realized today is that I do need to make a living.  Yet I don’t need to give up my precious time and energy worrying about work when I’m home?  Where did they say ‘worrying’ makes me a better person?   Nay, it just makes me anxious.  It’s all about how I want to live my life.  I want to smile more, laugh at another person’s silly jokes, listen with my heart and enjoy the simple pleasures in my life.
