Charlie Brown Wisdom

The smile on my face doesn’t mean my life is perfect. It means I appreciate what I have and what I have been blessed with. I choose to be happy. Charlie Brown via Charles Schultz

When I was in high school, my Aunt Lucy sent me Charles Schultz’s Happiness Is a Warm Puppy, published in 1962. I’ve always loved Charlie Brown and friends. To many of you, happiness is literally a dog or other pet like Snoopy. Of course that faithful, beloved pet doesn’t solve all of your problems or completely ease the apprehension of a pandemic, but I’m sure your pet puts a smile on your face and that’s a big step towards having joy in your life.

Sometimes people assume “smiley people” are either faking it or have a “perfect” life. Sometimes they are faking it, sometimes life is really good, sometimes they are simply choosing to be happy despite their life circumstances.

Affirmation: I choose to be happy.

Coaching question: What do you choose to be? How is that working for you?

  1. I choose to be optimistic. This too shall become a memory. Parts of the memory will be joyous and other parts not so much. Hopefully the joyous part will be bigger then its opposite. Be safe and stay healthy. I enjoy your pictures of all the flowers in your life.
