Calvin-gots-an-IdeaMom 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.

The Odd Life of Timothy Green shares the key to life with viewers in a tale filled with unexpected magic and inspiration.

In his short life, Timothy  lived in the now.  He didn’t argue, fuss, or fight over “nothing.” 

He loved with an open heart and gave IT his all.  He did the best he could, with what he had, where he was.  He bloomed where he was “planted.”

He didn’t stress over  imagined slights, close calls, or things outside his control.  He embraced all with joy.  He spread laughter like fertilizer. 

He smiled like the sun. 

Aah . . . that’s better!

Timothy Green is an inspiration to those of us who want to inspire others.  He’s My Hero.

7 Thoughts on Health & Wellness

(1) I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

(2) Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive.

(3) There are two kinds of pedestrians: the quick and the dead.

(4) Life is sexually transmitted.

(5) Health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

(6) Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.

(7) Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.

7 Thoughts on Home & Garden

(1) When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it a valuable plant.

(2) Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog’s face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him on a car ride; he sticks his head out the window?

(3) The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.

(4) All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

(5) How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire . . . or a fire in the fireplace?

(6) Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, “I think I’ll squeeze these dangly things here, and drink whatever comes out?”

(7) In like vein, who was the first person to say, “See that chicken there? I’m going to eat the next thing that comes out of its backside.”‘

Aah . . . that’s better!
