  • Mar 18 2013: My cat likes to play with my sneakers and this morning he got his head sort of caught in one of them. He had a heck of a time getting out & it sure helped when I helped him out. His antics were funny to see and once his head was free he stuck it back in shoe again. So I know he loves to do that.

    Mar 18 2013: My friends always answer me why all day i'm happy. I've learned and thinking about the happiness. All the things in the world has a beauty inside, in all moments we can see many colors, hear sounds etc, if the world are so perfect why we cant smile? and all has a positive side in the universal context. See the talk of Mattieu Ricard "The habbits of happiness"

    Mar 19 2013: Just the thought about smiling, so thanks mate ;)!

    There's also this technique of reliving the good moments. Where, when you are aware of yourself being in a bad mood, just stop for a second, think about something that made you happy lately. Close your eyes, be conscious of your breath, and feel, smell, see, everything that happened back then when you were happy. I promise you, this sounds so easy, stupid, but it works, just thinking about smiling, can give you back that broad smile. So therefore, great topic!

    I have a roof over my head, food in the fridge, and a little extra spending money... What more could I ask for. For my first breath of the morning, I had a smile today!
