Thought for the day…..

Welcome to Thursday, December 13, 2012 ….. only 11 sleeps till Christmas Eve.

So, how did you do yesterday with thinking about what makes you “over the moon happy” …..

There are several things that make me “over the moon happy” ….

1.   living near my daughter and son-in-law and grand-puppies

2.   having Alvin as a companion and friend (my puppy )

3.   having my very own house

4.   being in great health and getting healthier everyday

5.   having this blog and you reading it

6.   being financially stable

7.   being able to see the moon and the stars in the evening and early morning sky

8.   the sound of laughter

9.   friends and family

10. music

The above list is not in any particular order but I will say this;  my family, having wonderful friends, and being in great health definitely top the list with my Alvin.

But I think you need a good mix of things to bring out your inner happiness.  If you feel good about yourself …. then you are happy.

If you are alone with no family or friends then it is hard to feel good about yourself ….. you know what I mean.

I do not believe that “things” make you happy but some “things” draw out how you feel about yourself and if you feel good …. then being happy will follow.

I am surrounded by the best people, my Alvin, a warm and inviting home and have employment … I am healthy which is so important.

So I am truly happy.  Now there are moments …. we all have them but they are few and far between (you know those moments when life doesn’t look so rosy).

So on this mid point of the last month of 2012 …. I hope that this finds you well and enjoying life.

Thank you again so much for reading my blog …. it does mean so much to me.

Have a great day.

See you back here tomorrow.



Always, Carol and Alvin
