time for changes again!
…people universally tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that maybe will descend upon you like fine weather if you’re fortunate enough. But that’s not how happiness works. Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it, you must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it. If you don’t, you will leak away your innate contentment. It’s easy enough to pray when you’re in distress but continuing to pray even when your crisis has passed is like a sealing process, helping your soul hold tight to its good attainments.
m: im watching GG
j: gossip girls?
m: NO! golden girls!!!
hahaha i see what you did there. anyways my gf made me watch golden girls cause she really loves the show. and i was kinda dragging my feet to do it. but i ended up enjoying it. it puts me in a good mood. it’s very comedic and it’s the type of funny that’s not vulgar. I also like it cause it makes me less afraid of getting old.
Some of us presume that when you get older, esp after your kids move away and your spouse dies, you will be alone. But these women aren’t alone…they have each other as roommates! and i thought that was a great idea. They also aren’t helpless. They take care of themselves. They have a better body that I do! lol and all of them still have jobs…
So most of what I don’t look forward to when I grow to be that age, doesn’t seem complicated and scary anymore. Thank you GG lol
The perfect farewell.
