Happiness is actually in the little things. The simplest things that tickle us and brighten our day. Some people laugh when they get tickled, but for robots like me, I get annoyed instead. From a gesture of someone you love to even a smile from someone you barely know. Happiness is closely related with momentary peace of mind. The euphoric feeling that all things are possible in that moment. However splendid this feeling is, it mostly doesn’t last. More like a dose of meth, you’re still usually hit with the harsh realities. You look in the mirror and yup, still ugly 😑.
Find a reason to live. Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be. For most people this is the biggest challenge. Some haven’t quite figured out why the big man sent them here. Chatting with mom’s the other day and I told her, “I’m not quite sure why I’m struggling, but struggle, I must!”. So if you’ve been lucky enough to realize your calling, and that it’s to be a thorn in someone else’s flesh, embrace it, stick to you task and ensure you’re happy doing it 😁. Dedication
Don’t grow up. It’s no secret that children enjoy longer bouts of happiness than adults. The older you get, the less your chances of being and staying happy. This is purely deducted from poorly done research. There are people that haven’t smiled all week and trust me, it’s not because there’s no money in their bank accounts. It’s the affairs of life constantly weighing them down. But it’s better to cry in a Ferrari. Right?
Pick up a baby. Not just any baby. Of course, you know there are babies that look like they pay rent and owe interest on a bank loan. I’ll tell you this, nothing warms a heart more than a toothless smile from a cute baby. It gets better when they start to laugh as you tickle them. All this to set you up for when they let one rip, accompanied by showers, but you’ve already been baptized once. Next thing you know, you need an inhaler because when these little rascals do a number, no air freshener can save you. Poop
Eat. Now this could go either way. Some people lose their marbles at the sight of food. Others don’t care much and will eat whatever they’re offered. It’s been scientifically proven that she’ll be in a much better mood after wolfing down a bowl of food. So rather than ask what’s wrong, suggest ice cream or catfish pepper soup. There’s something about women and fish (I’ll save this for later). Proceed to lecture her about how it’s bad for her health afterwards. Suicide
As you read this, I expect that you have a broad smile on your face. If there isn’t one, your problems are probably bigger than me and my jokes. You might want to seek help, you sad soul. Better yet, drink cold water. But know this, the only person truly responsible for your happiness…
