326. June 1st….Hey it’s June 1st….what better day to get healthy and happy….or at least start the project….

“Orchard” 2009

“If you’re going to kick authority in the teeth, you might as well use two feet.” – Keith Richards

I was having coffee with my friend Mars yesterday…we both concluded that “health” is numero uno on the list of things we want to aspire for…and an extremely close second  was…..”Happiness” ….then I began thinking after the conversation…that both of those concepts are on going….no one ever just arrives one day at health…or happiness…there is the process that requires we work on these things in some manner everyday….because frankly they are unattainable….we just get to a place that we say…”I am happy but probably could be happier…but this place really feels good…so…I’m staying here for awhile”….or…. “I’m healthy right now……we’ll see what happens”…..so the ideas of both are really in the moment of time we experience them….in….

so what makes me…you happy…..what is it that happens that…keeps the perpetual smile across the face…the vigor and excitement in knowing everyday….is going to contribute to the over all happiness quotiant….I think maybe it’s like a good recepie…..a precise way of measuring what works and clearly defining what doesn’t….knowing there is a certain amount of the unknown that may be added to change the flavor of life…while knowing as well that certain additions are going to distract from the quest….make things thick…unmanageble…and really becoming a session of putting out fires…..rather than maintaining happiness….

happiness is indeed the internal apparatus that is entirely non-dependent on anyone but the person living in the shell….looking outside of that for the answer is the beginning of the end…..kind of like bowling …but using somebody else’s hand…..it hard to get the direction and all that goes with the finesse of the game…..

the other day I received an email from a friend on the 90-10 rule….it’s pretty simple and just requires thinking first…rather than acting….fundementally the rules says……

10% of life is made up of what happens to us

90% of life is decided by how we react to that 10%

we do have a greater amount of control over what happens to us….how it happens…who does it….when it happens and if we allow it to happen or not….and the more I think about it…..the act of…”reacting”…..is a significant part of  creating things like health and happiness in our lives….
