Try to …

Try to learn to breath deeply,

really to taste food when you eat,

really to sleep.

Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might,

and when you laugh, laugh like hell.

And when you get angry, get good and angry.

Try to be alive.

You will be dead soon enough.

It is not easy to find happiness

It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.

Anais Nin

No es fácil encontrar felicidad en nosotros mismos, y no es posible encontrarla en otro lado.

Anais Nin

Were you happy today?

I just read this brilliant phrase – yes, courtesy of Goodreads of course –  and gave me food for thought, and inevitably I discover that today – as yesterday – my little one made me happy. I was happy with my actions of the day, I was happy on how the day went, I was happy to see my little one be happy.

The days that make us happy make us wise .

John Masefield

So, following Masefield phrase, I can say, happily, that today I am wiser than yesterday.

Enjoy, and have a happy week. Be wiser.

 

 

Note on Masefield :

As a young man, English poet John Masefield (born June 1, 1878) always had his nose in a book. His aunt did not approve, so she encouraged him to break his “addiction” by joining the crew of the HMS Conway. On board, Masefield actually had more time to read than he ever had on land. Soon enough, he was even writing his own stories and poems.
