Time for a Happiness Day

Time for a Happiness Day

Don’t sacrifice yourself too much, because if you sacrifice too much there’s nothing else you can give and nobody will care for you ~ Karl Lagerfeld

You are not a bad person, you’re not evil or lazy as long as you have tried and my friends we have all tried.  I know there are times when we feel like we are bad parents, bad sons, daughters, and bad siblings.  Throughout my life I have seen everyone try, now granted that trying has led to a wide variety of successes and failures.   If we are to be truly happy my friends, we need to forgive those whose tried on our behalf, even if they were not as successful as we would like or need them to be.  We also hope of course that those who we try for will also forgive us our failures in the future.

Since we have tried my friends, it is time to give ourselves a break, to give ourselves a happiness day.  Now this is not just a day off, we have all taken days off, I recently have had time off, we end up all too often spending those precious days doing errands and cleaning the house.  This is not a vacation day where we have itineraries and places to be and people to take care of, this is for us.  This is a happiness day, a day free of the pressures and responsibilities, a day designed for simply one thing, to make us happy.

So call in to work, warn your family, make arrangements for child care and plan your day.  Plan this well in advance and create a day that will make you happy.  This could mean a day just sitting in the grass reading a book, it may mean a long hike, or a spa day.  Treat yourself to really good food and by all means don’t do anything responsible.  The point of it all is to make yourself happy and for one day forget your worries and just enjoy yourself and that means that this day cannot be cancelled.  Good luck my friends, I’ll report back on mine soon, have a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
