It All Started With Happiness!

It All Started With Happiness!

Today’s bDahlialog is really a stream-of-thought blog as one thing led to another and my original thought for the blog is gone with the wind!

There is an old aging joke that goes like this:  You find you need to put new batteries in your flashlight and along the way you realize you have left your glasses in the other room.  As you retrieve your glasses you notice that you left your coffee cup on the table and go to put that in the dishwasher and realize you forgot to get something out for dinner.

While in the freezer you see that you need to clean out and defrost the freezer.  You look for a piece of paper to put it on your to-do list.  Now you find you don’t have your glasses, haven’t put batteries in your flashlight, you don’t know what you are having for dinner and say to yourself “what was it that I was going to put on this to-do list?”  Does this ever happen to you? 🙂

Yesterday I was reading an email from AARP about finding your happiness and more information could be found on the website.  That sounded like an interesting trail to follow so today I went to the website and found a list of articles on “Happiness.” I started reading an article about what makes people happy and saw an article that contained a quiz about what impacts our happiness.  I took the quiz (which by the way I flunked) and that led me to a page of quizes within the AARP website.  This I found fascinating and before I knew it I learned all about Wi-Fi privacy (aced that quiz) and was searching the list for other fascinating topics to be quized on.  What started all this anyway?

Sooooo…’s the website for the AARP quizes – just in case you need to be distracted from whatever it was you were doing!  Click HERE for the link.
