….. not a peep from you!

Happy Easter weekend! Hoorah for being off work today. Also, peeps are one of those things that I think always sounds good… But then I buy some and I remember, they look better than they taste!

Jerry Seinfeld was the first comedian to perform standup on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon! Take a look at his set here!

Ah, love Jerry.

Sometimes when life is getting too hectic and I feel out of control and that I don’t have everything together and I am falling behind and I either want to cry or yell, hug or push someone, sit alone or be surrounded by people.

I put this on for a few minutes and it calms me down.

HOW CAN WE BE HAPPY ?
Once a group of 50 people was attending a seminar. Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each one a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.
At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon. Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.
The speaker began— exactly this is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.
Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness. And this is the purpose of human life.
I really love this. It is my life.

This is absolutely amazing. What a great sense of comic relief during air travel! Go Southwest.

Can’t wait for this to be released later this month! Had chills watching the trailer.

I just love them. And the way that they look at each other is positively adorable.

I was reminded of a post a wrote a while ago about ‘Secrets of Adulthood’ after reading The Happiness Project. I added a few new ones that I think are important. What are your ‘secrets’?

Secrets of Adulthood

A few weeks ago I read the book The Happiness Project by…

Great list! Agree on all - especially sending thank you notes, having a strong hand shake and calling the grandparents!
