Wow. It's getting to the point where I don't even want to turn on the radio, TV or even my computer anymore because all I see is gloom and doom.
I heard this weekend that during February, the U.S. lost 900 jobs per hour. That's insane. Then you listen to how hopeless the financial system is, how worthless your house is and how expensive your health is and you wonder how you can even crack a smile anymore.
That's why I thought I'd try something a little different.
Remember this old icon from the Peanuts gang?
That's right... happiness! Remember that?
Here's my idea. Everyone leave me one or more things that make you happy and I'll republish those in a "Happy List" next week. It couldn't hurt.
Here are a few of mine:
Happiness is -
- snuggling on the couch with my wife and watching a good movieWhat makes you happy?
- riding through the country on my motorcycle on a warm summer day
- hiking through the woods in the fall
- a clean and organized garage
- 5 p.m. Friday
