|Happy Weird People?|
I notice that quite a few people who did a Google search for “happy weird people” ended up here on Square Pennies. I’m not quite sure how to take that. Perhaps anyone who looks happy these days is considered weird? Anyway, welcome all happy weird people! Or those who want to be happy and weird.
I do believe we can be happy even when the economy is not ideal and our lives are not perfect. We can have fun while making meals with family and friends, choosing to spend money on things that really mean something to us, and being useful to others. Even when we have a lot of stress, we can put to work tricks to manage stress and get done the things we want/need to get done.
Happiness in the moment comes in appreciating the people in our lives and the little things that often end up being the most important things. Sharing a cup of coffee with a friend and keeping that friendship strong over the years really enriches your life. Playing with the kids in the leaves is still great fun even if the economy is is bad shape. Sure we have to pay attention to the budget, save money, and try to keep our jobs. But we can still have fun. If that’s weird, so be it!
Welcome happy weird people! Please share what makes you happy. And we are all a little weird in one way or another. That’s normal.
