A Key To Happiness

A key to happiness: having something to look forward to. Some people run a race to see who is fastest. I want to make some changes in my life and run a race to enjoy myself. A career break or time credit can allow you to temporarily interrupt your work, either in part or in full, so you can spend more time with your family and friends. I took the opportunity to work 4 days a week now instead of 5 and have the luxury of Friday off.

Audrey Hepburn said ‘The most important thing is to enjoy your life – to be happy – it’s all that matters.’ I totally agree, Audrey. How about you, Mr. Bowie? Looking forward to spend more quality time together on Fridays? But first of all, let’s concentrate on your Gotcha Day, my birthday and the Puddingfest.


One more thing: I’m taking a 3-week vacation starting from next Monday. Isn’t life grand? Sometimes.

Don’t you ever stop, long enough to start
Get your car outta that gear

  1. It seems you are over your disappointment. How fortunate you are to get more time with Mr. Bowie. Enjoy it all.

  2. Good for you on making positive changes in your life. You will love the 4 day work week. I worked 4 days a week for years, and it was great having Fridays off to get projects done, and to deal with things that are M-F only with out having to take time from other work days. But that change in 2010, and I’ve been on a 5 day work week since (although I have a very flexible schedule, so it’s not too bad). Since I took 5 weeks of vacation last year, and a lot of changes have happened with work and family, I’m not sure I’m going to take much of any vacation this year.

    I’m sure Mr Bowie will enjoy having you around a bit more, and now if you can can get a macro lens your life change will be pretty well on the way to being complete.

  3. Oh yea wow, a really nice vacation time and also a 4 day week. You and Mr. Bowie will enjoy all of that! Congratulations on being able to make that decision. Will you take a trip on your vacation time, or hang out with the great cat in the beautiful gardens?

  4. Congratulations on the 4 day work week! Yes, Mr. Bowie will enjoy having you around more too. It’s good to have more time for home, cats and non-work related projects.

  5. Puddingfest sounds very interesting. Bet Mr. B will love having you around one more day each week. This photo is so magnificent. Amazing how much the rock and Mr. B’s fur can look so similar! XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  6. Sounds like a lot of great positive changes in happening in your life! Fun picture of Mr. Bowie. Hope you enjoy the next leg of this adventure called life 🙂

  7. Sounds just the thing ! Have a splendid restful creative holiday with all those celebrations to enjoy…. should be fun 🙂

  8. Oh, de vrijdag slaap in en de espresso in de tuin tot middag, het leven zullen prachtig zijn. Misschien ook kwekend meer catnip? Congratulaitons Herman, zo perfecte geluiden!

    Audrey was entirely adorable, not unlike my two favourite Belgians, have a wonderful vacation my friends 😀 xoK
