My patience practice

I came across this quote, with which I have been very happy, as I felt it was very applicable on my current learning curve ... patience. After reading the Art of Happiness, and my first notes on it Exit 1, Suffering I have been really working hard in practicing my patience. Working in, and being on Ecuadorian time, mixed with certain people and situations have been a great teacher for which (in the end, after some good suffering) I am really thankful. And this quote feels like the cherry on the cake, as it exactly reflects my feelings of the past months, and therefore is making it to my little book I take a look at every morning for my life's reminders.

Happy greens!

Did you know that an 18-year long study in England concluded that the greener a neighborhood was, the happier people were? And this was actually independent of other important factors such as income, marriage, health or a nice home. As turned out, a green surrounding contributed about a third as much as getting married, and a tenth as much as having a job... This inspired me to take matters in my own hand - as we are spending a lot of time in the city, due to work - and turn our home a little bit greener. With little I tried to do a lot, and I am happy with the result. Because if the greens have affect outside, they must also have inside!

Smile

You know, sometimes silly things make you smile. Due to an interior project I am doing now here in Guayaquil (which doesn't leave me a lot of time to blog, but of which I will certainly show you more later) I do find myself a lot on Pinterest, just like these dogs. Dressed, decorated, and humanized like little dolls - they just seem to pop up, and simply make me smile sitting behind my laptop (and I hope you too).
