People Have A Very Short Memory, Don't They?

"People never know what they like, they like what they know..." - Anonymous

Many people go through life bumping along and never settling down at anything, really. These are probably the happy ones. For the things they like are the things of the moment... The happiest folks are the people who have a short memory for the sad things and a real lasting memory of the things that please them.

In other words, where is your comfort zone? Perhaps it is at home with the family. Or, perhaps you have no family and feel most comfortable in your ride, heading out for a great day at the beach. Do you really know what gives you pleasure? Are you satisfied with what you are doing in life? Let's face it, just lately, we have all had to tighten our belts and get along with far less than ever before. But has this impacted your life? Are you less well off? (I don't mean financially - everyone has had to deal with the business of doing more for less and there are a lot of long-faced folks out there who have had to take a major salary cut just to keep working.)

I think I have discovered the key to happiness. People who are satisfied with what they have and are not constantly yearning for bigger and better things have got to be the happiest people in the whole world. But, don't get me wrong. A large chunk of us have had to put aside our ambitions, just to mark time while things get back together again...
