Timepiece of Happiness

Yes there was a time when we could simply be happy and didn’t need to be told that we were happy but nowadays… How the heck do I know if I am happy or not???? A couple of years back there was the mood ring where the stone changed its color so I knew if I was happy or what and the ring changed color too because I wore it too much and my finger turned green and not from envy.

Then there was the mood glasses too, they helped put the world in a rosy perspective, so to say, but they didn’t let me know if I was happy or not and not knowing that simple fact is somewhat disturbing, if you ask me…… Don’t ask!

But now I feel saved because there is a watch coming onto the market that will save me thinking and will just let me know if I am happy or not………..

Hummmm, I think I feel happy, but better check or else I won’t know and will be left in the dark wondering if I am happy or not???? Now that is a load taken off my shoulders… Not that I was worried about being happy or knowing if I was. The thought never crossed my mind before, but now with a watch to tell me if I am happy or not… Life couldn’t be easier and I can tell everyone after a quick glance at my watch if I am happy or not…

So, everyone out there just a warning; if you didn’t get a chance to look at my watch before seeing my face, be careful because it used to be that the facial expression gave a clue as to what mood the person is/was in. So, if you see a somewhat up-set look on my face steer clear because it means that I am in a bad mood, otherwise I am in a good mood and you can see this without looking at my watch or me looking at my watch either……. A plain simple fact!!! I bet you didn’t know that….

Then again, like the article mentioned I can wear the watch to bed and it monitors how I sleep if I move around in my sleep and how long I have slept…… I feel worn out just thinking about all that and then after trying to fall asleep not move too much, feel happy, have happy dreams and so forth….
Though when I wake up in the morning after a good night’s sleep I can inform everyone that I slept happily, am well rested and now happily awaiting the day to start… Where’s my coffee??? Or else I am in a bad mood…… No watch needed for this bit of information!!

Plus, to compare myself to friends….. OMG!!! There we go the start of ruining my friendship with friends and we are all comparing our happiness, sleeping habits and so on. I am not too sure doing that would be a good idea and what happens when one of us is happier than the other??? Wouldn’t it be a bit show-offy if I went around to my friends and said “Hey, look at how happy I am.” Okay, that is theory. But if they said that they were happier than me……Now what????

And to top it off… it will give me tips on how to change my lifestyle….. How does the watch know how I live and whether I eat healthy or not??? I like my lifestyle and I think I can think for myself and that wearing a happiness watch along with my normal watch would be a tad too much, but then again I would know if I was happy or not…… Even thought I have to buy my happiness watch to know that I am happy, but hey, to know I am happy is worth every cent!! Or ?????

Have a happy Friday

Grocery Store Here I Come!

There is supposed to be a new shopping App on the way that will make my grocery shopping a really fun and a quick experience…….. No more fun wandering the aisle for me!!!

The little App is there to help me and make my life easier or so they say. Just scan your stuff at home that you need to buy and then you are on your way to the grocery store and once inside the GPS system shows you where to find those products….. Why do I have a brain???

I see a nightmare approaching … There I stand in my kitchen and think to myself (thank goodness I can still do that without an App) “High time to go to the grocery store”, now what??? Normally I make myself a list …. Like lots of people do; so I know what I want to buy. Well, I guess that is too old fashioned!

Now I need to take a picture of everything that I want to buy at that one and only grocery store…. Now firstly, I need a Smartphone that I can take pictures with and has App’s and the battery has to be fully charged or else my shopping picture list won’t exist…. This will take more time than me writing my shopping list on a piece of paper….. Where’s my pen????

But what really worries me is the fact that I have to constantly be taking pictures of the packages of things that I have bought and want to buy again. How much time do I have??? Let’s see: the pile of empty packaging that I saved; Smartphone ready to take pictures- laying out all the old packaging … OMG I threw some packaging out…. Now what???? My shopping trip is down the drain and it hasn’t even started yet….. NO bad hair day… But a bad grocery shopping day!!!

With sweat running down my brow I manage after 45 minutes to photograph all the stuff that I want to buy, and I still need to write a list for the stuff that I couldn’t take a picture of… now I am up to 60 minutes being wasted of my time. But saving time is of the essence!!!

There I enter the grocery store and my App automatically sends me a GPS signal so that I can find the stuff that I took a picture of at home quicker… Life can be so simple at times…. No brain required here!

Though I do have to watch were I am going. I don’t want to collide with anyone in my race to save time to get what I took pictures of. But can you image if you bought a product that was a special and the grocery store doesn’t have it anymore and my App doesn’t tell me this…. I feel that could just ruin my GPS shopping experience then and there!!

Now I have to turn to my paper list and there I stand in the middle of an aisle not knowing which way to turn because there is no GPS on my list and I have to depend on my brain power and wander the aisles aimlessly looking for that one product that I couldn’t take a picture of….. The perils of getting lost in the aisles of a grocery store!!!

But what is far worse is the thought that your battery on your Smartphone dies while in the grocery store because I forgot to charge it. Now there you go….. A nightmare that could only happen because I was trying to save time take loads of pictures and run the GPS all at the same time….. Good bye battery

Though with all those time saving Apps and stuff I must admit I will stick to the method that I like to use… the good’ol piece of paper with what I have written on it…. And to manage my way through the aisles of the grocery store… I will take my chances without GPS…. I like challenges and there is no better place than at the grocery store!

So, should you be thinking about going to the grocery store; remember your shopping list and make sure your battery in your Smartphone is fully charged or else…

Have to be Happy?

Now here’s an eye opener. The happiness agency; how this operates I have no idea but I am sure that it will bring happiness to hundreds of people who visit it – hopefully ??????
Sure happiness is many different things and we all have different ideas as to how we are happy or will be happy. But an agency to help me be happy …. WOW!!! How can they do that???

Here it is: I am standing there with my number ( very important… don’t want to butt- ahead of anyone would I?) dreaming of how I will be happier.. I am happy or at least I thought I was, but then again I may be side tracked with my happiness thoughts and not have the right kind of happy thoughts.

What makes me and my guy happy??? Well lots of things my list could circle globe if I wrote them all down. Isn’t the saying” it’s the simple things in life that make us happy”. Ok, that is passé´- the thought we need is to be modern up-to-date and keep with the times no more old fashioned happy thoughts about simple things….. I need modern thinking, so what is modern happiness???

After pondering a bit on this questions and phoning around to a couple of my gal friends we came up with some ideas… ok, it’s our point of view and not the rest of the worlds view, but then again I haven’t the time to question everyone. So, sorry when I didn’t ask you, and please don’t be upset with me. Thank you!

Modern happiness could be:

1. Having a new cell phone so I can contact the world and be online to tell everyone that I just bought my phone…. Happiness – for how long???

2. New shoes – wow they look good and I only spent a month’s salary on them, but I’m worth it… Aren’t I or did I have some bills to pay???

3. A vacation …. Now that can bring happiness but it only lasts as long as no one gets into argument, but otherwise we’re having a great time… I am happy!!!

4. New watch – as long as one of my friends don’t go out and buy a more expensive model then I have… Then I’m not happy

5. New handbag – Life at its best for a gal and nothing can hold her back as long as she is carrying her new handbag with her or until an acquaintance buys an up-graded model! Life can be so painful when it comes to handbags….

It seems modern happiness is only attached to buying stuff and not to the inner happiness that we once knew or has that disappeared somehow through the years? I think it’s important to be happy but I don’t need an agency to help me be happy. I can be happy myself and I bet those other people could be too, if they wanted to and made an effort; instead of worrying about how can I spend my money and then I will be happy.

Have a happy day and remember it doesn’t cost a cent to smile…. That’s what so great about them!!!
