Try Being Happy...Monday April 5th

 People take different roads seeking fulfillment
 and happiness.  Just because they're not on your 
road doesn't mean they've gotten lost...

I have noticed that many people spend too much time 
worrying about what's going on in other people's life to actually 
have time to be happy themselves.  It seems like most people would 
rather be certain they're miserable, than risk being happy. 

 Happiness for me is waking up every morning next to the one I love. 
 Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have 
the power to make me happy or unhappy today. Some days I really have
 to push myself to face the world with new hopes and expectations,
 but like everyone, one does what one has to do.  It's life.

It is knowing that in good times and bad times Arvid 
and I will face whatever comes our way.  It was knowing that 
and any given time Brutus was right next to us, and that
 now Sniff is right around the corner waiting for us
 and loving us. Could not ask for more.

Happiness for me is being comfortable with who you are.  
It is that feeling of security that comes with knowing 
that you actually like the person you are right now.

Happiness does not mean that everything is perfect, 
but it means that we strive each day to be the best 
we can.  Do not look back on happiness or dream 
of it in the future. You are only sure of today;
 do not let yourself be cheated out of it.

All is good with us.  I do feel a little homesick, but I
 know it will get better.  I'm not sure why this is affecting me so much.  I should be used to moving around by now.

To all a very good day and a great week ahead.

 Those who can laugh without cause have either found the
 true meaning of happiness or have gone stark raving mad...
