Finding Happiness In Every Situation

Today TOMS shoes is asking people to go one day without shoes to spread the awareness of the impact of a pair of shoes on a persons life.  For those of you who don’t know, TOMS donates one pair of shoes for every pair purchased to children in need around the world.  (Thank you TOMS for what you do!)

I was on my Twitter account when the following question came from TOMS

TOMSshoes Tell us how your barefoot day is going! What have u realized is #hardwithoutshoes?

My response was instant

GoldilocksBlog @TOMSshoes My feet are cold…

I caught myself instantly, which inspired this blog. My response should have been – My feet are cold…, but I’m grateful for the many shoes in my closet.

Our ultimate goal in living our perfect lives is to be happy. So shouldn’t we look for happiness in every situation.  Don’t we usually find what we are looking for?

Just a thought…

Creating my “just right” perfect life…

Earth Fare – Doing Things in a Certain Way!

This morning I wrote on my Twitter account; “today is going to be a great day!”  I have been feeling like that a lot lately…, that somehow everything is going to be okay – better than okay!  I feel joyful, and I have a sense of peace and calm about me.  I am happy that I am creating my life, and I love what I am doing!

I realized that my circumstances should not control me.  That I control me, and I am happier and healthier because of it.  I stated that today is going to be a great day, and, it is.  I woke up early and saw my beautiful daughter, went to “walk and talk” with a friend, started writing, and now – I just won a smoothie from Earth Fare!  They are all just simple little things, but they all have brought me joy!

Earth Fare is our local Healthy Supermarket here in, Asheville NC, that has expanded into four states, and now has 17 stores and counting. (Yea – more jobs!)  When you walk into an Earth Fare you feel the difference compared to other supermarkets, and you see the difference in their products, in their employees, and in their decor. It’s a sense of quality, cleanliness, and comfort.  A place where you might want to hang out at, and actually can.  I am new to Twitter and Facebook for that matter, but when Earth Fare posted on the their Twitter account that the next person to respond to them would win a free smoothie, I thought for a split second, “that’s silly”, “I will never win”, “I don’t want to look goofy trying for something and failing”, and, it’s just a smoothie.  Then I thought – no this is just fun, and I tweeted back, and won!  Imagine what we do with our larger decisions… and look at the good it has done!  It has brought me joy, Goldilocks Blog was posted on their Twitter Page and Earth Fare gets a blog post inspired by them. Just by giving me a smoothie, and they are getting back at least double their investment, since this post will forever be out here in cyber world:)

So in my very unusually long and round about way…,my thought for today is this – may be the answer to one of life’s questions is, to just do things in a certain way.  To claim the way you want your life.  Fun, Happy, with Quality, Cleanliness and Comfort.

Having a perfect life in a perfect world…


Google has a new social media tool to share updates, videos, or thoughts.  It is called Buzz.  Posts of Flickr, Twitter, and youtube can be forwarded to your Google Buzz.  I have signed up and posted a Google Buzz about Love and included my web address to guide people to my site… now I just need to work on Facebook, Twitter, and a few other social networking sites.  I think it will help me reach my goals.

My question however is – how much is enough?

Just a thought…
