This week takes us on an Eastbound Road Trip, so time spent at my computer is limited. No news or commentary on current events, just my favorite saying, my favorite musician and some happiness advice to hold you over till next Friday...
This joyful advice is a reprint from one of my past emails and these w
ords of wisdom come from Marci Shimoff (Chicken Soup for the Soul author) via Kelly Rogers Victor's Kale and Kant.
1. Develop a Kind Mind - Our thoughts seem to have a mind of their own, but our actions are entirely in our hands. Many of our thoughts are of the negative persuasion but if we can become active in thinking positive by reminding ourselves of the good fortunes in our lives, that will limit our brains from those negative thoughts that block our happiness.
2. Give Love, Service, and Appreciation - Our biology is built to gain pleasure when we do good for others. The more we help, give and appreciate...the more happiness we will experience. Our physical body also benefits when we give and receive love.
3. Live your Passion and Dreams - Self explanatory.

Condolences to Fan, Friends and Family of the multi-talented
Glenn Campbell who died in Nashville this week at the age of 81. After his public announcement that he was suffering from the soul-stealing disease of
alzheimer, he bravely journeyed back on the road for a final concert tour. Hopefully one day this dreaded disease with be eradicated from human nature.
