It’s how you play the game …

image

Dedicated in loving memory to those long forgotten childhood games we played when life was simple and meant to be enjoyed.

Does anyone have a clue anymore? Remember the good ole days when you could walk to the edge of the river bank to kick back and go fish without a care in the world? Remember when we referred to battle as just a card game and not some racist bullshit we are surrounded with today?

It seems our government has a monopoly over our actions as though it is some covert operation. Agh! The damned yo-yo’s. Worse than a barrel of monkeys. Truth is it is our own mouth that puts us in jeopardy . It has nothing to do with government.

In scrabble we must think before we play a word. Isn’t it odd that we don’t think before we speak? And then what? Bingo! All of us, we end up throwing hand gestures and saying “I’m Sorry” until we are blue in the face. We’ve all gone marbles.

So many people in society today can barely connect four dots without expecting a handout. Ask these people what a payday is and they will look at you as though you are some master mind trying to trick them into a real life game of truth or dare. “Catch me if you can” they think to themselves.

Perhaps we should all abandon the dream of a fairy tale life in candy land singing high ho cherry o with guess who. We are at war with ourselves on our own private battleship.

This I do know:  LIfe is a risk. A constant game of hide and seek. And try as you may, you will never master perfection.

Here we go again. Love, love, love all three. I think for all of us here writing makes us happy or is a form of therapy. And nothing is better than a long walk while watching the sunset. I love the heat here in Texas, but can’t wait for the fall season when the time changes. It allows me to be home when the sun sets. It makes me happy just to think about it. But I love the sunrise too:

This is the letter V of the ABC’s of Genuine Happiness.    Every few days I will be posting a phrase beginning with the next letter of the alphabet seeking your opinion or view on the phrase and how it relates to genuine happiness.

Venting. Don’t we all do it? Don’t we all need it? Sometimes when I vent though it does not make me happy. I usually says things I should not have. I think I find it better to talk to myself in the car, yes? Visualizing dreams, goals, desires …can be amazing, as long as you focus and never ever give up on your dreams.

This is the letter U of the ABC’s of Genuine Happiness.    Every few days I will be posting a phrase beginning with the next letter of the alphabet seeking your opinion or view on the phrase and how it relates to genuine happiness.

Wow ~ THIS is awesome.   Unleash your strengths.    Very powerful.   In order to unleash our strengths, you must first identify what they are.    We all have strengths.   Some of us are stronger in some areas while the rest of us are stronger in other areas.    Not only can unleashing your strengths bring you great happiness, but finding someone who has strengths in areas that you are weak in, can bring just as much happiness.

What is your opinion on the letter U: Unleash your strengths.

I am not much when it comes to taking power naps.   My power naps turns in to hour naps.   My husband can power nap and wake up after 15 minutes and be totally refreshed.   That makes me happy, hahaha.    Talking wisely can make a lot of people happy, the problem is that most people don’t talk, they don’t communicate of any level.

Love, love, love them all.   A smile takes much less energy than a frown.   I know some people who has a smile that makes them glow.   Sleeping, when I can, definitely puts a smile on my face.   And anything I can do to simplify things, in any aspect of my life, I am willing to do.   Sometimes, I am too simple.  I guess that is what makes me … me.

What is your opinion on the letter S:   Smile.  Sleep.  Simplify.

This is the letter R of the ABC’s of Genuine Happiness.    Every few days I will be posting a phrase beginning with the next letter of the alphabet seeking your opinion or view on the phrase and how it relates to genuine happiness.

Reading is not something a do a lot of.   Well, I read a lot on line.   I read a lot of blogs.   I read reports at work.  But I rarely pick up a book and read it.   I think I may spend so quite time on my patio when the weather cools just reading a few minutes each day.   Who knows, I may find that relaxing too.

Reinvent myself?   Hmmm.  I am a little stumped by that.   I am not sure how reinventing myself would bring me happiness.   Hell, I am not even sure how to reinvent myself.   Maybe this should be rejuvenation.

What is your opinion on the letter R:  Read.  Relax. Reinvent yourself.
