The gall some people have....

 Well some people have them and some don't.  I parted with my gallbladder about a year and a half ago.  And well recovery was rough, but the little guy had to go.  As part of my surgery prep I made myself a little stuffy version of my gallbladder.  I decided to go with a happy approach and not think to much about how much trouble that guy was giving me.  

He's so peaceful now.  Need one of your own or as a great gift for someone... check out my etsy shop!

Singing on Sunday...

Well since yesterday I posted a CC video that made me happy I thought today I'd go back to where it all started.  My love affair with Counting Crows and Mr. Jones.  The first time I heard it I was gripped by it, and headed straight to the store to bring home the cd (yes cd I'm at least that old).  And I've been buying every album since and I'm just as entranced with them today as I was back then.

I love my name!

 I'll admit I love to see my name places or hear people say it.  I'm not one of these people who grew up hating on my name... it fits me and it makes me HAPPY!  So when Counting Crows(one of my favorites) did a cover of Amie (incorrect spelling is okay here) I was in love. Click the link below to give it a listen.

It's the little things....


Yup it's the little things that make me happy! I love squirrels I love that you can find them anywhere and everywhere.  They always make my day brighter.  Like I said before Happy is a choice... and it doesn't have to be a hard force yourself choice, look for the little things, and you'll be surprised at how much they can change your outlook!
Sometimes you feel like a nut!

Today's be happy note comes from prolific french writer Voltaire (1694-1778).  Even in his day when he was writing pamphlets, letters, and books, and many of them in protest of certain religious subjects, he still knew that being happy is better!

Make the right choice!

I have noticed a problem with people lately.  They can be so unhappy.  They just cannot see the good things around them and choose to focus only on the negative.  I want that to change, and I think that happiness can be a choice.

I mean some days we get out of bed in a bad mood, or other people put us in a bad mood.  Whatever the reason for feeling, sad, unhappy, or just plain blah we do have a choice in the matter. It's often as simple as noticing the beautiful clouds, or just changing your thought pattern*. Some people only want to bring others down, and are so enmeshed in their own unhappiness that they cannot see any other way to be.  But please make simple little steps everyday to choosing happiness.  It's amazing how much your outlook will change, when you change to see the better.

Now of course it's easy to be happy in the happiest place on earth!  And when you are with an old beloved character, and well you might be a Disney princess.  But you can always have a little bit of that with you everyday.

* Disclaimer:  I know that there are those of us who are suffering from anxiety, depression, or other medical conditions.  I get that, please see someone who can help you.  Those conditions are real and make it incredibly hard to choose happiness, but with treatment it can be an option for all of us.
