Sexy Lemonada sent me an inspirational whisper for this week. When I read it, it made me reflect on how sometimes, out of nowhere, something comes out to shake us upside down, to force us to stop and reflect on our lives, to force us to start our happiness project…before it is too late…
BUSY all Day! IS IT TOO LATE TO SCHEDULE HAPPINESS!!!
"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin".
Everyone wants to be HAPPY. Some just wanna be CONTENT. But sometimes it takes an extraordinary situation to make us change our habits in order to take the time or make the changes that might lead to a happier state of being.
When you are sitting across from the doctors desk & they tell you that the results are positive and the (medical team) starts to talk about, stages, grades, surgery, port, etc...You do not necessarily think about the diagnosis, but you start thinking about...TIME..........ALL the time that you wasted being sad instead of HAPPY.YOU start to Think of REGRET. I should have said yes, I would have, I could Have, Why did I say next time. YES, YES, damn it YES. You are angry at yourself.
Living in the moment becomes the most IMPORTANT THING.
I recently came across the HAPPINESS PROJECT. It is a book written by Gretchen Rubin. She embarks on a happiness mission an 'EXPERIMENT' for one year. Her book is about her adventures.
Another Good read: EAT, PRAY, LOVE: by Elizabeth Gilbert.

Jim Valvano, an American basketball coach and broadcaster, said: “Cancer can take away all of my physical abilities. It cannot touch my mind, it cannot touch my heart, and it cannot touch my soul.”
And Joseph Addison, an English poet and politician said: “Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses and disappointments; but let us have patience and we soon shall see them in their proper figures.”
And you, when will your happiness project start?
