What do you think are the most important things in life?

I think a similar question would be: what things make up happiness? In your opinion.

I can also answer but I don’t want to spoil the first answers.

Good Health, Family and Faith equals a happy fulfilling life.


Breathing ranks pretty high on my list. In fact, when asked what the secret to long life is, my dad replied, “Keep breathing.” The last thing he did before he passed away last summer, and even though he wasn’t conscious, was to take a deep breath.

Good health would be first, for without that you can’t enjoy much. Love would be a very close second. It has been my experience, that love conquers all. With love and good health, there is nothing you can’t accomplish.

Stable mental health is #1. Even if I’m physically suffering, if my mind stays within sane boundaries, I will be okay to my last breath.

Double opening soda bottle caps.

I should add that having money helps.

My answer would be 7 things:

Pretty obvious.

In something. Significant. Have faith or hope. Be optimistic. I like to find the truth. Some people like to be spiritual.

Being thankful for what you have. And especially peaceful. No regrets. Accept and keep moving forward. Be positive.

Do whatever you like and like what you do. Be independent.

Maybe a family. A community. Unite. Encourage. Want others to succeed. Contribute to the world. Share. Be social.

You need to grow. Make progress. Be better. The journey is the destination. Learn. Educate yourself.

Have few needs. Less is more. Also try hedonic adaptation.

You don’t have to chase happiness. Similar to the quote “try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value”. Be blissful. If you want to feel lucky, work hard, prepare yourself and be open to opportunities. Know why you live and ask yourself how you can make it happen. Have your emotions in check. Have good decision making skills. Don’t fear. Watch out about this important word: change; it’s everywhere. Trust yourself. Don’t care (all the time). Be yourself. Be present.

Other than good health it is family, especially children, and then it is having good sense.

Common Sense!!

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

  • Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
  • Why the early bird gets the worm;
  • Life isn’t always fair;
  • And maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death,
-by his parents, Truth and Trust,
-by his wife, Discretion,
-by his daughter, Responsibility,
-and by his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 5 stepbrothers;

  • I Know My Rights
  • I Want It Now
  • Someone Else Is To Blame
  • I’m A Victim
  • Pay me for Doing Nothing

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

  1. Coca-Cola

  2. Good Cheese

  3. Bacon


Thomas Paine is sad.


The love to cry with others and the craziness to laugh at yourself.

My Dad
A comfy Bed
A phone so I can all my dad
A Job so my dad will not worry
To sleep well (in my comfy bed) knowing that you can because you can tell your Dad anything so life will never be bad

and for my @SunPowerGuru

Coke Zero
Mature English Cheddar
And the most important rindless back bacon all day long


Add World Peace to my wish list.
