The Goal Behind All Goals October 1, 2010Posted by nrhatch in Happiness, Humor, Mindfulness.
Kirk Weisler scored a home run with this gem:
Mom told me that happiness is the key to life.
So, when a teacher asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up, I said, “Happy.”
She said I didn’t understand the assignment.
I told her she didn’t understand life.
To read the whole post (and you should): Don’t Lose Your Marbles Or Your Bubbles.
This simple cartoon reminded me of a conversation I had with a very close friend shortly after I stopped practicing law.
On New Year’s Day, she asked, “What are your goals for the year?”
“To be happy.”
“No. I mean what goals are you setting for yourself?”
“Just one. To be happy.”
She thought I had lost my marbles. I knew I had found them.
