  1. I think misery should be declared a human right. Let’s not be ashamed of pursuing, let’s glory in it.

    Misery for all! Don’t let happiness stand in your way. It’s just a plot by marketers. Misery is cheaper, easier, accessible to all. Forget happiness, go with the majority.

  2. LOL! Thanks for this isabella! I remember laughing one of those laughs myself at the top of a mountain when a massive storm started and our whole party were wearing summer clothes, with a three hour walk down and no shelter. The laugh felt great but people treated me like a total madwoman for the rest of the trip. When it comes to misery I have definitely got some learning to do. Off to buy the book ;-)

  3. Practise today and at least once a week the art of laughing until you cry… meditate on it…. contemplate on it…..especially during the misery……
    One of my favorite movies is Patch Adams….

    PRACTISE EXCESSIVE HAPPINESS !!!!
    Seems we could all use more of it….

    Evan, You made me laugh…..Thanks!

    Sarah, I love your style, keep the mad woman in you! Let us know how the studying goes on that book !!!!

    Oh watch out someone might call you bipolar????

  4. Thanks for your comments!

    Somehow I see what you say, Evan (“let’s glory in misery”) and what you say, Diane (“let’s practice excessive happiness”) as related. I imagine a big grin accompanying both comments …

    Yay for exuberance!

    Patch Adams is a wonderful movie, I have to rent it again. So, so inspiring.

    I’m glad you made it down that mountain, Sarah. What a moment that must have been! Looking forward to hearing what you think abou the book.

    If I wrote a list of all of the many heartbreaking things that have happened to me in the last few years, it would extend to more pages than available to me here. But that is not my point. I discovered these magnificent words online somewhere (no author name given) a couple of years ago, printed them out and hung them beside my clock so that I would see them many times a day.
    They have become my reality check, because they are so true. I have since learned that unhappiness is a choice ~ and I have chosen to decide to be happy (and it works!) I hope this will help others as it has helped me!

    “You will be
    exactly
    as happy
    as you decide
    to be!

    God Bless each of you.
