Choosing To Be Happy – No. 4

Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.
– Dalai Lama

A week ago last Thursday, I was celebrating being happy for being able to hand wash my pickup truck for the first time in a very long time (besides the occasional automatic car wash at fuel stations). That same evening I started waxing my truck for the first time in at least five years (life got in the way). Each evening I have been working on the various body panels and this evening I finished the last components. I’m happy tonight that my truck has finally been waxed.

Many people find waxing their vehicle to be a chore. I found it this time to be very therapeutic.

  1. I took a deep sigh. Good for you Patrick! My truck has needed a good “wash” for quite some time now. My hubby was gonna wash it this weekend and then it just poured like crazy! So happy for you for “making your own happy moments”. We truly can find JOY in the small things. Have a great week!
