What is Happiness?
Happiness does not depend on having more things, getting your own way or doing what you think it should. Happiness comes from knowing that while we cant make an unhappy person happy, we are constantly and inevitably affecting other peoples wellbeing. All our encounters with others lift their spirits or lower them. Taking this power seriously is a crucial way of growing into our highest potential. We need to shift our thinking from 'What will make me happy?' to 'How can I most positively affect the world around me?'. Being a source of happiness, support, interest, comfort and wellbeing for others will transform our own lives.

I hope and pray that you all are enjoying the day or night where you live

Its a glorious dull overcast day here, we have had rain overnight which is badly needed here in this part of Australia. Yes its wintertime and the days are cold and short. I love the days where it is still cold, but the sun shines, which brings a warmth and a glow to the day, but theres a warmth and a glow to my heart as well. I know soon that the warmer weather will come, and until then I appreciate the glimpses I get of that fact in the sunny days that come my way.

The Meaning of Life

I found this on Kim Schafer-Jones blog spot 'Wyoming Prairie'

On the first day, God created the dog and said:
'Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past.. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years.'

The dog said: 'That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?' So God agreed.

On the second day, God created the monkey and said:
'Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span.'

The monkey said: 'Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the Dog did?' And God agreed..

On the third day, God created the cow and said:
'You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years.'

The cow said: 'That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?' And God agreed again.

On the fourth day, God created man and said:
'Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjo y your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years.'

But man said: 'Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?' 'Okay,' said God, 'You asked for it.'

So that is why for our first twenty years we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves.
For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family.
For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren.
And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you.
There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I'm doing it as a public service

Natural Face Lift Recipes that diminish fine lines and wrinkles

Natural face lift requires ingredients that are readily available in your fridge. The nonsurgical face lifts that you can prepare at home, contain the best natural ingredients that might not offer a permanent solution, but certainly benefit the skin's rejuvenation. They reduce the fine lines' appearance and smooth the skin if used regularly. Starting off with a basic natural face lift would be impossible without mentioning EGGS.
Eggs are rich in the protein albumin, and rich in amino acids that tone the skin and smooth out fine lines.
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon of sugar
Whisk the egg yolks until the mass is firm and consistent. Add sugar gradually and mix well to combine the two. Apply on the face and leave on for 25 minutes Wash off with warm water using a wash cloth.
The next facial lift consists of lemon, which is known to help oily skin whether it is used fresh or as an essential oil. It closes the dilated pores, serves as an excellent antiseptic, and finally, contains huge amounts of Vitamin C that increases the collagen production and regenerates the top layers of the skin.
Lemony face lift
1 lemon peel
a bit of water (1 tablespoon or so)
Using a food processor or blender, combine the lemon peel with a bit of water. The mix should resemble puree. Apply the mix to the face and leave on for a few minutes. Rinse off with warm water using cotton balls or wash cloth. Pat dry
