Happiness. I bought some books in order to learn the first principles of spare time. If you haven’t read Leo Bormans’ book “The World Book of Happiness”, Mr. Bowie totally recommend that you do. Click here for more information.
Everything that has a beginning has an ending. Looks like my 3 week summer vacation is over today. Spending quality time with my family, friends and Mr. Bowie. I’m totally depressed! How can I overcome this post vacation blues? Why must all good things come to an end? Okay, all things come to an end eventually, not just the good ones. Wait a minute, I got to realise that my vacation doesn’t necessarily end here. There will always be some good times ahead.
Learn and appreciate what you have. Let go of guilt, pride, negativity and perfectionism. Move on. Remember, happiness is not something you postpone for the future. It’s something about the here and now. It’s something within us. Am I right, Mr. Bowie?
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
