I needed to read the subject matter a few times this morning. One of those days, pondering what in the world I am going to write about. And then after having my new, but still healthy breakfast (plantains with one boiled egg), and feeling stuffed, I decided to have half a plantain tomorrow. Too much of a good thing sometimes is not that good.
Going back to the subject matter, I pondered about happiness. Happiness for me could be a gazillion things. Having my bed made and having the breakfast dishes done and feeling free like a bird, give me a certain degree of happiness. It is somewhat a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. I looked outside from the window of my kitchen and saw all the grounds covered beautifully with the purest white snow and I said to myself “what a wonderful world we live in.” Going out there and slug it out walking on the stuff and driving aware of it, is another matter. But in the meantime let me continue focussing on happiness. Right now I feel happy. I am typing and thoughts just get flowing. I am going out later to use a $10 coupon that a store gave me as an incentive to spend $50 or more. Good marketing. I feel I need to go back there and use that coupon, but the goodwill process will cost me some extra money. What the heck. I need some more winter socks and who knows what else I need, I’ll only know when I see it.
Happy Everything…It depends on me to give anything in my life a rosy color, it does not matter the degree of darkness of the issue I am facing at the moment. I just put on my rosy eyeglasses (I have an unending supply in my mind), and carry on. I wish you…Happy Everything.
Your Happy Contessa

Happy you are happy. Wonderful to be so optimistic! Happy New Year.
It is a matter of choice. It is not easy. It is easier to be miserable and have pity parties, than to take responsibility for the moment at hand and claim ownership of the issue. Good or bad. It is the only way I can survive.
I am planning on a fabulous New 2011, and hope this for you too. I really do appreciate you reading my humble efforts. Un abrazo.
