Don’t Worry Be Happy

There’s a little recipe for happiness that I’ve always loved . . .

    Someone to love,
    Something to do,
    Something to look forward to!

I have it written on a post-it note at my computer desk. It’s been there for years. So long, in fact, the note eventually lost its “sticky” and had to be taped to another piece of paper hanging from a clip. 😉


Of course, there can be lots of other “ingredients” in a person’s happiness recipe, including:

  • Work that you find fulfilling
  • Having time to dream
  • Being there for others
  • A levelheaded approach to life’s challenges
  • Enough money for the essentials, and a little extra!
  • A realistic perception of yourself, with recognition and appreciation of your strengths!
  • A sense of inner serenity.


What element(s) would you include in your recipe for happiness? 😀

  1. My friend has this hanging on her frig, and I always liked it.

    Today’s Celebrations:
    5/3 National Chocolate Custard Day (I’ll celebrate anything chocolate)
    5/3 National Raspberry Tart Day
    5/3 National Disabled Pets Day
    5/3 World Press Freedom Day (recognizes the value of freedom of expression, and the sacrifices journalist have made to attain this freedom. It was created, and is sponsored, by the United Nations).
    5/3 Lumpy Rug Day
    Lumpy Rug Day is intended to appreciate a good rug. A rug should be smooth, even, and definitely not lumpy. Many of us stretch out on a rug to watch Tv, play games, and even catch 40 winks. If the rug is lumpy, you’ll know it.

    There are a number of ways to enjoy Lumpy Rug Day:
    If you have a lumpy rug, toss it out and get a nice, lump-less rug.
    If you once had a lumpy rug, take a minute to remember the soft, comfortable feel of the new rug when it arrived.
    If you never had a lumpy rug, count your blessings. You don’t know what you’re missing.

  2. Kelly Ann – You are a blessing – you say some of the best things.
    I can’t add anything better than the two of you. But this is one that I’ll come back to and read several times.

  3. The knowledge that you are appreciated can go a long way.
    So, I am adding to Kellie’s list of celebrations. If you didn’t see one you like, make this
    Tell Someone How Much You Appreciate Them Day….not to be confused with Election Day in Indiana.

    Have a wonderful, feeling fully appreciated day today.
    xx, Carol

  4. Allison!
    Somehow, I missed answering your comment from yesterday. So sorry!
    I know I have a case of the “Mom syndrome” with this blog – I’m always afraid I might – without meaning to – show favoritism by answering one comment and not another. I hope you kids know I love you all the SAME!!!! xo
