I was listening to a TEDTalk the other day from none other than NITRO, Dan Clark, of the American Gladiators.  He was a badass in his time and even though he was a Gladiator, a Professional Football Player, etc, he had a heart attack in his 50's.  He thought he was going to die.  It crushed him because he was of the mindset that he was indestructible.  His life and happiness were based on what he was able to do physically.  He saw that those things are fleeting.  He changed his quest and began to study happiness and how to really get it.  What he found after lots of research and investigation is that happiness doesn't come from the BIG things that happen every once in a while but rather from the little things that happen VERY often.  In fact, he actively celebrates those little things by verbalizing a little "CHA-CHING" and he visualizes dropping some coins in a "happiness bank".  I guess it's like a version of STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES. I haven't done the CHA-CHING part but I will notice sunrises and sunsets, a good cup of coffee, or a smile or laugh from my daughters.  It's about being grateful for these things.  And the more you notice these things, the happier you become and the longer that feeling lasts.  The other thing he said is that he "got the message" that our time here is short and we don't know when our card will be punched.  So, he decided to remove the words "someday" from statements.  Because he might miss his chance.  If you need to say something, say it.  If you need to do something, do it.  If you need to let something go, then let it go.  Life is too short to be unhappy and fighting non-stop.  Let the shit go.  Notice the little things.  Be thankful for them.  Concentrate on them.  Be Happy:)
