Well, that made me happy. : )
On Oprah today, they were talking about happiness. One very interesting point was made that I've never heard before. There are a handful of things that make us happy - liking our work, marrying the right person, having enough money for the essentials, having friends, having enough sex... but one of the most important things, the expert said, is where you live.
I wish they had elaborated on that more, but the show was over right after he said that. I think this could be why full-timers seem to be so happy, at least the ones who blog seem to be pretty happy on a regular basis. You pick where you live all the time. If you love a place, you can stay for a while. If you don't like it, you move on. You get to live at the ocean, in the middle of the desert, up in the mountains, at a campground, anything you want.
I've never heard anyone say that where you live is that important for happiness. I can see how where you live could make you miserable, though. So I guess the reverse is also true. Don't you think?
From Me and My Dog, Katie, have a nice day, everyone! : )
