Get a Happiness Habit

What is a happiness habit? It’s exactly what it sounds like. It’s when you are in the habit of being happy. You wake up happy, you work happy, you play happy, you eat happy, you go to bed happy. You get into a pattern where happy is the only way you know how to be. How do you develop the…

Life is about the Journey

There are two steps to getting what you want. First, know what you want. Once you know what that is, you just need to prepare yourself to receive it. This is the hardest part. We become impatient.

Recently I had a free day to get out on my bicycle. It was almost 30 days since I last rode and that was getting to be too long. Between getting sick with a bad cold, darker, colder days and holiday travel, I just couldn’t get out. Finally, I had my chance. All the holiday stuff was put away, and…
