Is it prosperity, good health, positive attitude – or their opposites which manifest this mood?
Could it me by attitude?
I know, however nice the start of my day – if my mind wanders to the word of negative memories, failed situations, seemingly insurmountable tasks and difficult people, they I can be assured a gloomy day.
On the other hand, no matter how gloomily any day might unfold, no matter how much rain and cold wind splash my face – if my mind wanders into better territory of happy memories, great days at play and I have challenging interesting work to do and interesting people to meet – cannot imagine anything better.
Yes, I love great weather.
But that’s hard to define.
Everyone has a preference …
But define feeling sweet, happy and light on your feet – no confusion there because we all know how that feels and we want to feel that way again. Every day might be a bit much, but frequent would be great wouldn’t it?
I never wonder which could be happiest life – one I live, or one I imagine – because surprises of every day are better and more worthy for me than any fiction I might create. As so many people say of real events, “you can’t make this stuff up”, and you can’t. You can however play a strong role in creating the life you have. We all can. We can excuse it away by blaming something else or someone else – but it all rests in our lap, so why waste energy blaming?
Hi Mark. I have a friend who lives alone, much younger than I, but had this same concern. She asked if she could phone me everyday just to check in. By evening if I haven’t heard from her, then it is my responsibility to call her. Simply, it is medical assurance for her. Very legitimate in its need, when one does not have one person everyday who knows your A’Ok. She will often leave a brief “loving message” which has become heartwarming to hear at the end of the day. No response from me,required...if home, I answer the phone and wish her a good day. When I am out of town she calls an alternate person. These brief exchanges take little effort. 10 years has proven this to work well. I pass the idea along with hopes others will consider this ‘humane connecting’ way to be safe, SF, Lethbridge, AB
