Inside Job

My all-time favorite YouTube video ~ Enjoy!

Happiness is an inside job. It isn't related to anything external to us (new job, new car, new home, new relationship et al., nor whether or not we get what we want or expect out of life, or whether people act the way we think they should).  Happiness is a decision we each make (or not), it's a place to come from, a ground of being, an internal attitude through which to filter everything in life that shows up.  Nothing is important enough to destroy one's happiness over.  Everything is impermanent, including us.  Don't be attached to anything ~ experience it while it's happening, then let it all go.  It's all just life learning, no judgment necessary.  We're all just practicing and growing and finding our way back home again.

Have a great weekend, and a safe one if you're in the States.  xx

p.s.  About the video ~ Robert Dollwet is an animal trainer who used to live in Malibu, during which time he trained animals for Hollywood.  Now he lives in Queensland.  His famous cat, Didga, is a rescued kitty that he trained.  You can learn more about him, Didga, and his videos and tutorials here.

You have, once again, written something I will print on a 3x5 card and use in my artwork -- giving you credit, of course. Thanks, Connie!
