I am very big into family, and I have a big family as well. 5 brothers and sisters (I'm the 5th of 6). 14 nieces and nephews (R Russell Patrick II joined us 10/13/13). 5 great-nephews & 6 great-nieces (Brooklyn Grace joined us 10/2/13). And no, with that many family members, I do not keep up with birthdays very well. Not well at ALL! Even with a master list on my fridge.
I'm also married. My husband and I got married here in San Antonio at the historic Sheraton Gunter Hotel downtown. And we are the proud parents of a 12 year old Alaskan Husky named Moo and three 1 year old kittens: Wicket, Willow, and Winter.
Like all Texas moms, I made my kid pose in the bluebonnets.
Increase your happiness and make your home, and even your office, a place filled with greater simplicity and comfort.
Under-react to a Problem
Don’t minimize or ignore the problem, but definitely get all worked up. If you act in a calm and unflappable way, you’ll help yourself cultivate that calm attitude. Under-reacting to small incidents also tends to make them less annoying.
Control the Cubicle In Your Pocket
With technological advances, it’s hard to actually walk away from the office. Your calls, your email, everything is at your fingertips, and you probably feel you need to check it constantly. But remember what it means to be productive. It’s not always work related. Time spent with family and friends is never wasted.
Cultivate a Shrine
Create areas that enrich your passions, interests, and values. Maybe you have an area that’s filled with pictures of family. Maybe you have a little corner nook that includes a comfortable chair and lots of books. These are places that express happiness, help you recall a happy memory.
