Fluffy Stuff

Thoughts From the Coffee Table: A 4.5 hour flight can be tough, but I had serious legroom and an empty seat beside me!

A woman behind me was nagging her husband something fierce, in that “just too loud” voice. Poor guy. She had something negative to say about everything. Why is de-icing taking so long? Why aren’t there more food selections? Why can’t they make coffee?

I have an aversion to negativity. It makes me itch. I decided to immerse myself in The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor.

This book, fueled by research and written by a man with a lovely wit and fabulous deadpan humor, is a great reminder that we get more in life choosing a path of happiness. As Shawn says, “Happiness CAUSES success and achievement.” This book is a MUST read.

Which brings me to Fluffy Stuff.

Every time I see a bag, I must buy it. Each bag fills me with childlike joy. It wasn’t around when I was a kid. Yes, there was cotton candy, but only pink or blue. This has 4 colors AND 4 flavors!

Mostly, I like the randomness of it all. Finding joy in the little things. Being able to laugh at yourself. Knowing happiness will always reap rewards.

Maybe I should have shared my bag with the woman. Or maybe she would have hit me over the head with it. We’ll never know.
