Be happy and stay happy.

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”

Simple Happiness - Part III

Gosh! Had a great 24 hours!

A long weekend has passed. No classes for the students from Saturday until Tuesday. My niece suddenly decided to come over for a quick vacation at our home. She came Monday and left the next day.

I was the one who had fun. My niece, who has grown to a pretty lady, is the daughter I don't have, hehe.

The day we arrive home, we immediately took a dip in the pool, even if the weather was cloudy with some rain. It was cold, brrrr.

Fast forward . . . I am truly grateful and happy.

Dreams, Restructured

What is it in August that makes me review my life plans? Hahah. Possibly it's because it's a month before my birthday, heheh.

Anyway, about three and a half years ago, I started writing down my dreams, my 10 gigantic dreams.

Today, I reviewed them. I crossed-out those I have achieved, some with sweet success, a few with bitter memories but still dreams I pursued and which accounted to my personal growth.

Me in Europe, me walking where Jesus walked. . . me playing the guitar, me doing zip line in a high mountain over vast water and bungee jumping up, up there . . .

I restructured my set of 10 dear dreams.

Now, all I have to do is read them daily and pray that God bless them as I pursue them.

I pray that you who are reading this pursue your happiness. May life treat you well and may our Lord bless you.

Be Happy in Life

Lately, I am being happy more often, and being happy on little things.

I am happy to have read a good book.

It was handed to me by my mother about three months ago and finally I was given the grace to make time and effort to read it. And "Aha", it was a good read. I will recommend it to my son.

I am happy to have bought colorful pens.

These "not expensive" pens motivate. Having these colorful pens just give me an extra boost to write whatever inspiring things come my way.

I am happy the sun has come out and we can take a walk.

Since the rain has stopped, I can walk the dogs. A bonus was that my sons went with us for an early walking exercise. We were able to catch the morning sun. It is a miracle to have my sons wake up early. Because of this, they were able to eat breakfast not in a hurry.

Be happy in our lives. Just try and make an effort.

Add The Right Friends for a Happy Life

Yup, friends and more friends! Got my happy community here.

Seems to me that if you start opening up your life, with the secret ingredient (Him up there), everything good gets attracted. The right friends are magnetized and enters my life as I need them.

What you need just comes and if you know how to acknowledge and nourish your blessings, they increase a hundred-fold.

Try it for a happier life.
