I find people who want more, who get more, usually give more, work more and do more for others who need more. We can all change something …
Many somethings. What then? When we get what we want, are we happy? Happiness, and having, aren’t even close to being the same thing.
p.s. I went to a garden-party last night; year-end windup pot-luck BBQ for my advanced Toastmasters club. I was happy to named Toastmaster of the Year. Funny, as good as that feels – I didn’t do anything this year with that goal in mind. In terms of happy, seeing my food (5lb. dry rub brisket … 14 hours of cooking, gone in 5 minutes) gobbled quickly with everyone asking for more – now that made me really happy!

morning walk with Gusta: 11C/52F, clear calm and Gusta found all the tall dewy grass and needed a good wipe-down; we encountered squawking Magpies (likely trying to distract us so we wouldn’t find their chicks on the ground) an two menacing cats (I think they’ve just moved in) on a doorstep that gave Gusta pause … perhaps they’ll explore a close encounter another day …
