Downloading Happiness???

I get lots of e-mails from people asking me to try their products or services and review them on my Blog. 

They always start out the same way.  “I just love your Blog (insert name of Blog here)…..”     
Last week, I was contacted by a site that promises to teach people how to be “happy” through a series of apps.  I’m not kidding!  Apparently, all you have to do is download an app and you, too, can say bye-bye to the blues and hello to a happier you. 

Can it really be that easy?  Can you just download happiness the way you download a recipe for lasagna?  Hmmm.  I wonder…..

Well, if that’s the case, here’s my contribution to the Happiness Recipe File. 

First, take equal parts of the following ingredients and mix together: 

1.     Someone to Love;

2.     Something to Do; and

3.     Something to Look Forward to.

 Then, add the following spices according to taste: 

1.     Something beautiful to see (a favorite painting above your reading chair); 

2.     Something beautiful to hear (a piece of music that moves and inspires you);

3.     Something beautiful to touch (a fluffy kitten);

4.     Something beautiful to smell (a scent that holds happy memories); and

5.     Something beautiful to taste (a glass of champagne)

Simmer gently for the rest of your life and enjoy.
