The Secret to Happiness

The secret to happiness is ...Low Expectations!

I saw a report last night on 60 Minutes where the second year in a row, the happiest place on earth is Denmark. According to the story, no one was more surprised than the Danes, themselves. They live low key, low stress lives with low expectations.

Pessimists of the world rejoice! Maybe a half-full glass is not so bad after all.

I guess it depends on how you look at it. Sometimes less is more, as trite as that might sound.

I have discovered over that last two years that by cutting back on activities and simplifying our lives, we are happier and less stressed.
