Happiness is a choice

This morning I was awakened by Flirt, our 11-pound miniature dachshund, rolling around on her back in ecstasy. Nothing new there: Flirt always wakes up in a joyful mood, squirming with bliss, her wagging tail thumping the mattress.

Flirt

How happy you are depends a lot on how you look at life.

The late Gordon MacKenxie told me to awake every day expecting a miracle.

If you expect great things to happen, they often do.

So I copied Flirt. Before getting out of bed, I stretched and smiled and told myself this would be a happy day. It worked!

When in doubt, act like your dog.

For that matter, when at the office, work like your dog. Good natured enthusiasm is contagious.
