Well, another election is over, and we’ve been arguing about who’s the best leader for this country, longer than I care to remember. Now that one has been chosen, we will continue to argue about it longer than I care to imagine. That seems like an awful lot of arguing for people who constantly say “all I want to be is happy”.
If you are a workaholic driven by money, your going to vote for the person who makes it easiest for you to make money, and be happy.
If you are NOT so driven, and like free stuff, you are going to vote for the person who makes it easiest for you to get free stuff and be happy.
If you are an average person who works hard, just wants to be comfortable, secure and still have enough time to enjoy life with their family and friends, your going to vote for the person who makes it easiest to have the best of both worlds, and be happy.
These facts should not surprise a single person, and the number of hours, days, and weeks we spend arguing about it boggles the mind.
Each citizen is going to vote for the person, who they believe, is going to give them the best chance to be happy, plain and simple, and as sad as it may be, we will spend countless (unhappy) hours, days, and weeks, arguing about it.
With all this arguing going on, its no surprise that nobody notices, that the person who has the best shot at making them happy, isint even on the ballot.
This person can only be found in one place, A MIRROR.
Thats right, YOU, and only YOU, can ever really make YOU happy.
So why everybody spends so much time arguing (and being unhappy unless arguing makes you happy) about someone who has very little control over their happiness is beyond me.
Many politicians have come and gone in my lifetime. They all did some things I liked, and they all did some things I didnt like. While all this was going on and everybody was arguing about who was doing the better job, I was busy. I was busy working at being happy, and I am pleased to announce that after 52 years of life, I AM NUMBER 1, at making me happy.
It didnt matter who was in office, either my health insurance premiums went up and/or the quality of my coverage went down, every year. Republican? Democrat? Who cares! Our tax code has only continued to get more complex and incomprehensible as time passes, and dont even start pointing fingers. Every politician who ever took an oath is part weasel.
Trust me, none of these people know shit about making YOU happy and it doesnt matter if your talking politics, religion, or relationships, If you look to someone and/or something else to provide you with happiness, you are going to be sadly disappointed.
Thats right, once again, repeat after me……YOU and only YOU, can ever really make YOU happy. No one (sorry all you spouses, boyfriends, girlfriends), will ever be as concerned about making you happy as YOU are. (dont worry, its natural)
So now that everyone has cast their vote, for the person who makes it easiest for them to be happy, win or lose, put down your smartphone, log out of facebook, walk away from your computer, switch off the tv, and STOP ARGUING ABOUT PEOPLE WHO COULD CARE LESS IF YOUR HAPPY, and go find a mirror and introduce yourself to the person who really CAN make a difference in your life, YOU.
Once you really get to know that person, introduce him or her to some of your friends. Maybe they will get the picture, stop arguing themselves, and go find a mirror of their own.
Then it doesnt matter who is in office. Because once you realize that your responsible for your own happiness, maybe YOU will get busy making YOU happy, and STOP arguing about who’s better at doing it for you.
With all of those people no longer arguing, maybe we can get on with some of the more important things in life,like betting on how old honey boo boo will be when she goes to her first therapy session, posting cute pictures of fuzzy kittens on facebook, or figuring out how many words a minute we can text while driving and eating a big mac at the same time.
Remember, when it comes to happiness, the only person on the ballot is YOU! Vote early and often.
