I absolutely love it when someone posts something in their blog that is the exact thing that I need to read that day, even if—especially if—I didn't even know that I needed it. My friend-via-blogging ComebackNikki did just that today on her blog 10Eleven.
I'd never heard of Thomas Bien until five minutes ago, but I sure do like his three instructions for happiness, and I thank ComebackNikki for sharing them:
1. Know that happiness is always available to you.
2. Accept imperfection.
3. Don't try so hard.
These seem like good rules to live by. I'm going to give it a try.
