Happy?

Ray’s Daily

“True happiness is to enjoy the present without anxious dependence upon the future.”

Seneca

We all face challenges as life goes on. Some are real, some are small and some are imagined. In a way they are the tests that we take to help us learn to cope with reality. I think the secret to a happy life is to always focus on what is good and especially the people who care for our wellbeing. Material things can’t comfort like the companionship offered by our friends and family does.

I hope you will continue to find your happiness. What follows is what I wish for you.

 

May You

by: R.L. Keith

May you find happiness in every direction your paths take you.

May you never lose your sense of wonder, and may you hold on to the sense of humor you use to brighten the lives of everyone who knows you.

May you go beyond the ordinary steps and discover extraordinary results.

May you keep on trying to reach for your stars.

May you never forget how wonderful you are.

May you always be patient with the problems of life, and know that any clouds will eventually give way to the sunlight of your most hoped-for days. May you be rewarded with friendships that get better and better, and with love that blesses your life forever.

May you meet every challenge you are faced with, recognize every golden opportunity, and be blessed with the knowledge that you have the ability to make every day special.

May you have enough material wealth to meet your needs, while never forgetting the real treasures of life are the loved ones and friends who are invaluable to the end.

May you search for serenity, and discover it was within you all along.

May you be strong enough to keep your hopes and dreams alive.

May you always be gentle enough to understand.

May you know that you hold tomorrow within your hands, and that the way there will be shared with the makings of what will be your most wonderful memories.

And may you always remember, each step along the way…You are loved more than words can ever begin to say.

Life is a grindstone,  and whether it grinds you down or polishes you up is for you and you alone to decide.

Cavett Robert

A highway patrolman pulled alongside a speeding car on the freeway. Glancing at the car, he was astounded to see that the person behind the wheel was knitting!

The trooper cranked down his window and yelled to the driver, “PULL OVER!”

“NO!” the driver yelled back, “SCARF.”

Conscience is what hurts when everything else feels so good.

He said that these are little known facts about women

  • “Oh, nothing,” has an entirely different meaning in woman language than it does in man language.
  • Women cannot use a map without turning the map to correspond to the direction that they are heading.
  • Only women understand the reason for “guest towels” and the “good china”.
  • Women can get out of speeding tickets by pouting. This will get men arrested.
  • Women will spend hours dressing up to go out, and then they’ll go out and spend more time checking out other women. Men can never catch women checking out other men; women will always catch men checking out other women.

“Friends help you move. Real friends help you move bodies.”

She said these are the REAL facts about women:

  • Life is an endless struggle full of frustrations and challenges, but eventually you find a hairstylist you like.
  • The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing in the right place, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
  • Time may be a great healer, but it’s also a lousy beautician.
  • Brain cells come and brain cells go, but fat cells live forever.
  • Life not only begins at forty, it begins to show.
  • Amazing! You just hang something in your closet for a while, and it shrinks two sizes.
  • Age is important only if you’re cheese or wine.
  • The only time a woman wishes she were a year older is when she is expecting a baby.
  • Freedom of the press means no-iron clothes.

Blessed are the flexible, for they can tie themselves into knots.

A distraught patient phoned her doctor’s office. “Is it true,” the woman wanted to know, “that the medication you prescribed has to be taken for the rest of my life?”

“Yes, I’m afraid so,” the doctor told her.

There was a moment of silence before the woman continued, “I wonder then, just how serious is my condition. This prescription is marked ‘NO REFILLS’.”

I used to think I was indecisive, but now I’m not sure

Grandma said:

I’m really not an addict,

There is no need to shout;

But talking with my puter friends,

Has turned my life about.

I still do the grocery shopping,

And make a bed or two;

But instead of staring at the television

I spend some time with you.

I go with friends or family,

To dinner or a show;

I take the time to hear my kids,

Or to watch a flower grow.

But yes, you’ll find me off and on,

Sitting on my puter chair;

And talking to my cyber friends,

Who always seem to care.

There are redeeming qualities,

And hear me if you will;

Since playing in this cyber world,

I’ve improved keyboarding skill.

In fact I feel at peace with life,

Things are going well;

The only thing it hasn’t done,

Is teach me how to spell!

“We can go through our whole lives worrying about our future happiness, and totally miss where true peace lives- right here, right now.”
