What can I do to be happier?
One thing you can do is to constantly be on the lookout for things you enjoy.
Be bold when it comes to trying new things – read a book, take a course, study and learn about what you enjoy.
I have spent a lot of time playing because in 1965 I discovered something that was to be my life’s work for the next 49 years; it has been quite a magnificent journey.
One does not have to always be questing; sometimes reveling in your triumphs can be a source of joy – sitting in the backyard with a delicious cup of coffee, your face being warmed by the early morning sun.
Perhaps being happy is a choice or a cultivated and honed skill – two more things to be happy about because we have a choice about these. Smile.
