{Don’t Mess With “Happy”}

Subscribers:  So sorry for the technical difficulties you had in retrieving this post from the notification email sent to you by Suede Sofa!!  I had some issues in posting this today.  Please forgive me!!

My husband, a sports buff, was telling me this story about how a collegiate coach was CoNteMpLaTing whether or not he should take a different coaching position.  It would pay more money and bring more presitge, however, it would require that his family move to another city.  Both he and his family were very HaPpY where they were.  Not only did the coach love his job and his life, so did his family.  As the coach debated over taking the new position a very wise person told him this:

“Don’t MeSs with happy.”

Good advice.

It is so easy to always want something just a little bit better, even though in reality, you are actually quite happy with what you have.  Maybe it’s the house and neighborhood you live in, but due to pressure from the {Jones’} you feel the “need” to get a newer or better one.  Or take, for example, your job.  It could be that you LoVe your job and are completely happy there.  You just wish you got paid a bit more.

Next time you want to make a change, it may be time to ask yourself if you’re happy right where you are.  You may find that even with circumstances less than IdEaL you still are happy.  If so, are you sure you want to mess with “happy”?

Who’s Your Rock?

Is the “rock” in your life a sister, coworker, friend, spouse, neighbor, child, or maybe your faith?  Who do turn to when you need good aDviCe or words of CoMfoRt? Are YOU a rock for someone? 

Having a rock (or two!)  makes life EASIER.  My “rock” is someone that loves ME unconditionally, AccEpTs my faults and shines light on my strengths. My rock puts my mind at ease and alleviates any stress through their presence.  After a bad day, there is nowhere else I’d rather be than with MY ROCK.

Have you told YOUR ROCK how much you appreciate them lately?  It is easy to take for granted the people that help us most.  This week, try to do or say something special to your rock.   You never know, this SIMPLE ACT may be perfect timing to return the favor!
