From a recent trip to the beach. There’s this overlook that gives you a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean.
Today’s a good day for a little levity. George Burns was an icon for my entire youth, passing away in 1996, he was smart, funny and the personification of snarky. So, how much happiness do you want? 🙂
Happiness? A good martini, a good meal, a good cigar and a good woman. Or a bad woman; it depends on how much happiness you can handle. – George Burns
Expectations are a funny thing. We all have expectations in life, of those we adore, of those we hate and of those we exist with. Those expectations are what they are and you cannot expect someone else to change, you can only expect to change your expectations.
You will never be happier than you expect. To change your happiness, change your expectation. – Bette Davis
Today’s quote is a good reminder for us all. Sometimes you just have to believe you’re taking the right steps, going in the right direction and making all the right decisions. I remember the words from The West Wing if ever I need a boost in the right way, “Act as if ye have faith and faith shall be given to you.”
You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope. – Thomas Merton
