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.
