So many of us will depend on others to make us happy. Humans have trouble with the concept of making yourself happy. Gotta try while I can.
It is easier to thing along the negatives for sure. So, who said life would be easy? (No I don't want to know, really.)
You only get so much time alive, and we do not know precisely how much, which is good. I don't think we could handle the truth. I couldn't. With this is mind I will strive to make myself happy, not depend on anything other than this.
So here goes.
I have been spending time drawing and writing a children's book. The name of the book is "Boris". It is a mostly true story about a tiny frog which came to live in my dogs' water tower. Now he is doing something I think is very important, taking mentors from many places. For instance he is getting a message about exercise, not smoking etc. These mentors are based on people I know, but have turned into frogs. King Croaky smokes a cigar.
There are many more things, yet to be really happy I should be drawing. Writing made me happy...only now I get to illustrate too! Double happiness rolled into one 15 minute package. Sometimes it takes me days, but hey, I have a piano to learn to play, and a life to live also.
I love blogging, yet it has fallen off of my radar sometimes...oh well, it is not my job to make others happy. A lesson we all can use.
I read, actually I "listen" to audible books, because I want to. Turning a negative into a positive is what I am about these days. I have been listening to books with my husband instead of watching TV. Of course it puts one to sleep, but hey we are retired!
I am reminded about this when I look at my news apps this morning. The world is hurting in so many ways, perhaps it becomes our duty to be happy, there are many who cannot be.
