Nothing is Impossible, the word itself says I’m Possible ~ Audrey Hepburn

Nothing is Impossible, the word itself says I'm Possible ~ Audrey HepburnHairs: Vanity Hair, Fantastic Girl *NEW** .

It’s going to be a bit high-gravity today, I am still a little lethargic and grumpy after being sick. Is it okay to mention I am a bad patient? Frankly being sick ticks me off, but being sick for three weeks? That’s enough to make me neurotically insane. Well that’s my excuse anyway. My coworker? I don’t think she can find one. I take a highway to get to work as opposed to the Interstate because I prefer a drive with a view. At one point in my travels there is an Interstate off-ramp and the traffic merges on to the four-lane highway. My coworker exited the interstate and had to travel across the right lane to the left lane I was driving in because the right lane eventually veers onto another road. I guess she didn’t think I was slowing down to let her merge in (I was) because when she swerved over in front of me she began shaking her fists at me. To this I say (1) is it everyone on the roads job to make sure you get to drive everywhere you want, right when you want, without you ever having to apply those brakes and wait your turn? And (2) I wonder if you were embarrassed when I arrived at work right behind you and you saw it was a coworker you have worked with and joked with for 13 years that you were shaking your fists at? I kinda hope she was, I would have been, aggression in driving can lead to fatal decisions. But all this reminded me of something. Happiness. How can you be happy when you are acting like a maniac?

I’ve found that there are several keys to happiness and this Monday, this lethargic Monday with a cranky co-worker and a crankier Cao, I am going to save myself and focus more clearly on my happiness. I am going to accept what I have in life because happy people have modest levels of expectation and aspirations. In other words, they want what they can get, while unhappy people never seem to get what they want. I am going to live for today, for right now. The bummer of an incident from this morning? It’s done and over, it’s in the past. All those dreams I have for my future? Nope not going to worry with goals either because dime to donuts fate has other plans anyway. Besides, I am optimistic and feel I have free choice and complete control over the events in my life. I believe with all my heart that the future is 100% going to happen, how’s that for odds? I will choose how I deal with any situation and by being myself, by not trying to be someone else, staying busy and abstaining from throwing myself into one of those dreaded “us” and “them” categories, I expect to live a life filled with happiness. Why? When I am driving down the road and someone cuts me off I am going to slow down, be happy and forgive you because bottling emotions and bad feelings causes psychological distress and physical discomfort.

Take from? Though I’m not sure I got here from there, but here is it. When you act badly, always be careful because you never know who might be watching. If you’re feeling aggressive, mentally slow down and try to find a happy place because no one needs that kind of anger roiling around in them. Mark Twain once said, “Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.” Life’s short, why be angry? Slow down, be optimistic about life, look at all the good about you and just be happy, happy, happy.

  1. Mark Twain and Audrey Hepburn in one blog post…fabulous! I have a particular affinity for the Mark Twain one. Oh, and those SoliDea FoliEs dresses are sublime…I may just have to log in.

    I love your high gravity message today. Now that I am on the other side of fifty…it is soooooooooooooooo much easier to just let things go and be happy. To that end, I grew up seaside, this is the first time I have ever lived inland and it has been five long years since I have been to the shore….so my husband and I are moving to the NC coast. I am going home to my beloved seaside…happiness is digging your toes in the sand and breathing that beautiful brine; with the soft spray kissing your cheeks…sighhhhhh.

    Thank you for the happy bump. ❤ ❤

    1. I totally agree Xiu, I am not a combative sort a’tall. In fact when some one is yelling at me, I normally just shut down until they are done. 😦 YAYYYYYYYY on the moving to NC! You are so right! I couldn’t live without a nice dose of salt air either. ❤

      1. Hope that salt air helps get you back to hale and hardy soon…GO dig those toes in the sand more and take those deep luscious breaths of pure bliss. <3<3

  2. Co-worker or no, that is the driving norm in Florida. Granted about 70% of the people that live here are in fact from somewhere else. I am with you, I always try to be happy. I appreciate the things I have and always live the glass half full philosophy. Sometimes I feel like my glass is full to the brim, but I never feel it is toward empty. I don’t smile a lot but I am happy. I feel like I live in this Big state all by myself most of the time, but I am happy. I look at it like a big giant toy box that evidently is mostly mine to play in. Life is too short to spend one minute without a positive outlook. If there is something around me that I don’t like, then I am the one that has the power to change it. Find my happy place if someone tries to rain on my parade. So, I hope you are feeling better finally…If not I hope you do soon….Hugs Lil Cao ❤

    1. hehe so true! I tried to mention just that to a person once and they really jumped all over me and disparaged people from Florida. I just figured I’d never mention it again, apparently you have to experience it to understand. I love your upbeat attitude and deep seeded kindness, you are one of the nicest people I know Spirit so you can park you optimism near mine any time. Huge hugs back ❤ xo

  3. A few years ago, the same black Explorer cut me off in traffic twice on my way to work. I grumbled in my car, but kept my hands on the steering wheel. I arrived two cars behind the offending vehicle, and when I left my vehicle, I proceeded to approach the offender, who was also parked diagonally across the two handicapped parking spaces in that part of the parking lot. And I gave him a piece of my mind, not only about traffic safety but how despicable he was for taking up both handicapped spots when he was completely able-bodied. I didn’t care he was our Marketing Director (not only my boss three levels up but a board member of the company). And you know what? I was totally happy after I did it and even happier after Security made him move his car 😉

    1. hahaha crazy woman! I couldn’t imagine confronting someone, let alone a suprvisor. I’d just die! But there is something wrong with someone who would park in a handicap spot when they are not. I hope his karma caught up with him. :**** ❤

I'm done inconveniencing electrons, any thoughts? Come on, you know you have 'em, post them up here.
