What Makes Us Happy

By Red on October 31, 2014 / 160 views

I have been practicing the art of happiness long before doing this research. The thing that helped me the most at becoming a happier person being appreciative of what I have. This single technique transformed me into a completely different person. Being appreciative also helped me rid of "If I X, I will be happy" thoughts. It is very important to understand that we are capable of being happy in the now. What can...

I Know There Are A Lot Of Things I Don't Know...

Things about the universe, about our world, and about other people. Especially what others experience or how they feel. I have no idea what it's like to be from another country besides Canada, or another culture, skin color, gender, or sexual orientation. I've never been bullied, or faced discrimination, because of what I look like on the outside. So who am I--are any of us--to judge someone when we don't know...

What It's All About

When I was in college I didn't attend many football games. I didn't go to many functions. I wasn't to be found at the bars or parties either. When I wasn't in class, my dorm room, or spending time with my friends there was usually only one place to find me: the library. I would spend hours there after class and on the weekends surrounded by books. I was fascinated by the amount of knowledge that was stored...

As I was walking along the street recently I overheard a girl talikng on her phone. She was walking ahead of me and speaking quite loudly. It was a quiet street and there was only the two of us in sight, so even though I wasn't trying to eavesdrop on her conversation, it was difficult not to do so. What I gathered from her situation was that she was in desperate need of a not too large sum of money and she needed it...

Our family got together and made cat toys, because, and you probably can relate, they end up losing every new toy within a day. So here he is with a cute little pumpkin stuffed with well, stuffing, and catnip. Leo is the name of the crazy cat in the picture. He hasn't lost the new...

Dear Son, What do you tell to a son that is responsible, serious to a fault and sensitive? Let me begin by telling you of how proud I am of what you are. What you are is what you will be – this I truly believe looking at you. You have never caused me to worry and I always admire your focus to tasks at hand. At times you need prodding but this does not mean you have let go, simply a short break you would say....

About 10 years ago when I worked at McDonald's, an elderly couple would come in every Sunday Morning. He would order a decaf coffee with a bran muffin and she would get an egg Mcmuffin with tomatoes. At the time I was what McDonald's calls a 'host'. Basically my job was to walk around the lobby, make sure it's clean, and interact with customers and ask them if there is anything I can do for them. Most customers...

The Tracks We Leave

When I was a boy I used to love walking in the woods around my home. My Mom warned me several times never to travel so far that I would lose sight of the house. Being a typical boy, however, I soon found myself hiking further and further away, testing just how far I could go into the woods without getting lost. After losing my way once for two hours, though, I decided that I had better leave a trail the next time I...

My maternal grandparents helped shape my thoughts, values, and paved paths for me even when I was not aware of them doing so. They gave me the audacity to dream and prepared me to take giant leaps in life by being loving and supportive. Now that I am a grandparent, I want 'Grand Prince' to have that same confidence to dream big and know he is loved and supportive. Being a grandparent has taught me a love that I...

When I got home that night my wife served dinner. I held her hand and said, "I've got something to tell you." She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes. Suddenly I didn't know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking about divorce. I raised the topic calmly. She didn't seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, "Why?" I avoided her...

What 30 Years Can Bring

Thirty years ago tonight I was sitting in a hotel room learning my lines! I was in a bit of a dither, awash in anticipation and trepidation for the occasion looming on the morrow. I surmise that across town there was a young lady who was a cool and calm as could be, with all plans go. I felt, and still feel, I might add, the most fortunate of young men, for when I asked her to marry me she neither snorted with...

Just now we were relaxing in the living room on our computers listening to music. "The Way You Look Tonight" came on and about halfway through the song he got up and offered his hand to me. He then pulled me up and started slow dancing with me. Such a simple thing made me so happy I was trying not to cry. There we were, slow dancing in the living room, gently kissing. I can't believe I got so...

I no sooner was walking in the prison yard one fine sunny day when a tough and hardened con shouted in my face; What are you looking at??? Without the slightest hesitations I put my arm around an imaginarily person, and blurted out; Just talking to my friend Happy Ness here. Well, honest to goodness that got his attention, and he came over to me, and gave me a raised fisted salute, and said; I heard about you. You...

When I bought Melly the Chihuahua at three months of age, my Chinese Crested Powderpuff, Mimi didn't want a thing to do with her. Things turned about two weeks later when Mimi felt some motherly instincts come in and she has never left Melly's side ever since. This was the two of them as I caught them sleeping in the dog crate one day. So cute! Best friends...

At a very young age, I have known Jesus. I can proudly say that I grew up in the church. I have attended bible quiz bees, bible studies, retreats and other related activities of the church. I am a constant church choir member and a church song leader. At a very young age also, I have been through a lot. A lot of of the bittersweet experiences life has to offer. Lots of ups and downs with my family and friends...
