Motivational Monday…

Ahhh.  Cooler nights.  Chatting with friends outside.  Strange and funny topics.  Cider beverages for me.  Nice.  I was sitting here remembering a book I used to read as a child.  It was actually written by Charles Schultz.  Happiness is a Warm Puppy 

Love that man and his thoughts.  Happiness is a warm puppy to me, and I have three, so I am very happy.  Happiness is my daughters.  Happiness is my husband as we just celebrated our 15th anniversary and so many couples don’t make it that far.  Happiness is crisp nights, warm socks, snuggly blankets and a fire.  Happiness is coffee or tea.  Happiness is my herb garden and being outside.  Happiness is true, honest to goodness friends.  Happiness is whatever you make it.  I know I nag my husband, and I know my faults better than anyone, so I am going to reflect for 10 minutes everyday about the good things in life.  I appreciate this year to be who I really am and to be more involved in everyday activities.

“Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier.  The way it actually works is the reverse.  You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.”  ~Margaret Young
