Sea Change & Alexandra Franzen
A friend of a friend of a friend of mine, always puts the IF condition on her happiness statement.
e.g. I'd be sooooooooo happy IF I had a house by the sea ... the surf ... not just the bay.
Have you ever caught yourself doing that? I bet you're not happy after saying it!
Notice what happens when you turn it around.
e.g. It'd be really amazing if I could have a house by the surf. Fortunately, it is not required for happiness.
I don't know about you, but after I say that turnaround pair of sentences, I get a thought with a smile that goes something like this... 'O yeah, that's right, now what was I going to do?' I'm happy and I move on to DO something. Now that's gotta be good.
Your turn. Fill in the gap with your IF condition for happiness, then go DO something. And leave a comment below with your thoughts about it all.
