.. and chocolate.. and wine

I would also like to add wine and chocolate to the above list, just sayin’. In my experience (you know, the whole 21 years of it) happiness comes pretty easily if you let it. Anger, frustration and stress all take a heck of a lot of mental effort to cultivate and dwell on, whereas happiness just sort of happens when you’re not focused on all the other ‘stuff’. My favourite analogy, which comes from Shawn Achor, is that it really doesn’t matter if you’re a glass half-full or glass half-empty kinda’ person, you’ve always got a pitcher to fill the damn thing up. Aka you create your own happiness. So, on this Friday afternoon, fill her up – turn the fuckups of the week into lessons, the closed doors in to new opportunities, the embarrassments into funny stories and take the empty cup to the bar. Although I think they have their own cups there
