The secret to happiness

Obviously I cannot tout that I have the secret to happiness. There isn’t one as far as I can tell. The one good thing that I am good at though is smiling. I was told by a professional, that does this (blogging) for his career, that I was to find five or six topics to write about and go from there. I have worked in the customer service industry for sometime now and know the impact something as small as a smile has on damn near everyone.

From what I can gather from life it really is the little things that matter: the subtle flavors that one can explore in a good meal, the see-you-later hugs from that special someone that can make the rest of the day, and so on and so on. My blog about the little things will a)hopefully keep me in tuned to them myself and b) raise anyone else’s awareness to those who reads what I have to say.

There is no secret to happiness: this is life, you have to take it for what it is. But, there is a way to milk it for all that it is worth. My hope first off is that people will read what I have to say; but secondly, and probably most importantly, that I can help someone discover the little things that may go unnoticed that make even the most mondane of tasks worth doing. I don’t want to make it seem like I am always the most cheerful person in the world, like anyone else life can get me down. But the times that can go one way or the other can easily go to the side that makes everything worth living. I hope you like what I will have to say, and I would like to encourage any feedback.

Thanks for reading,
