In order to combat the staggering out-of-dateness of my blog, I shall be writing two happiness tasks per blog. My present day task along side the next task I should be writing about. Eventually I’ll be up-to-date 🙂
Window Shopping Day 88 – “Whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to go shopping. ~Bo Derek
My teenage daughter has been teaching me patience… and a few other things…
A vintage used clothing store is where I learned my teenage daughter has great taste.
A new age store with fortune tellers waiting to pounce in the doorway is where I learned she wants to create her own future.
An eclectic brick-a-brack is where I learned she makes me laugh.
Stop ,listen and donate to the street artists… my teenage daughter is compassionate.
A coffee shop break is where I learned she can turn heads.
An antique store is where I discovered she knows how to learn from the past.
Window shopping with my teenage daughter is when I learned we are still great friends.
Have Faith Day 105 – “Optimist: person who travels on nothing from nowhere to happiness.” ~ Mark Twain
It did cross my mind that the end of the world would simplify my Christmas shopping, but when Australia made it to the 22nd I decided not to eat a whole cheesecake and spend my savings on a sailboat. I did have a paper bag handy to put over my head just in case.
Technically the world should have ended 7 months ago as the Mayans did not take leap year into account (apparently), so in a leap of faith I went ahead and bought Christmas presents. It did make me rethink the whole concept of ‘live like there’s no tomorrow’, but in the end I decided it’s all fine and dandy until there is a tomorrow and you don’t know your port from your starboard.
With resolution season coming up, however, I have decided there are some bucket list items that need attention. Sign language. Playing the piano. Australia may have to wait but a different ocean shore and a polar bear swim doesn’t. Next apocalypse I’m definitely getting a sailboat.
So…it has come to this !
Just like Goldman Sachs, I love the Muppets.
