Subject: RE: BS: Need some extra 'oomph' thoughts, please
The great Sid Caesar had this story. He said(paraphrasing here...), " I had EVERYTHING, a hit T.V. show, I could buy any car, point at a house and it would be mine, but I wasn't "HAPPY."

"I met a friend who gave one simple direction. If you put your thoughts on "HAPPY" that will be your experience. If you let your mind drift to that which reminds you you are depressed, then THAT happens."

Ridiculously simple, but watch a funny film, PLAY with some kids, DO something good for somebody else, the direction of your thought HAS to change. You CANNOT be depressed while laughing. Unless of course, you are BONKERS...LOL...:0)

The expression, "he has lost his mind," is quite apropos.. For ME, that means you GAVE UP the CHOICE as to which thoughts YOU LET your mind entertain. It's not the wife or lack of one who is to blame. Nor is it your SITUATION. It's all YOU.
