Life:  Getting through the tricks and enjoying the treats or... the trick to the treats

Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is the doing something else.

Quick Tricks to Feel Better Instantly

Wash your hands and face, and brush your teeth and get that fresh start feeling


Go outdoors – Get some fresh air 

Listen to your favorite music

Have a good laugh - watch a funny video clip or read your favorite comic strip

Notice what’s right -  stay positive, appreciate the pleasant outcomes, and learn from the rest.

There isn't a single human being who hasn't plenty to cry over, and the trick is to make the laughs outweigh the tears.

Dorothy Dix

Life is full of tricks and sometimes treats too.  We don't need Halloween to inspire trick or treating. Surprises happen all the time. Trick. Unexpected gifts come each day. Treat.

Life is full of ups and downs. The trick is to enjoy the ups and have courage during the downs 

Carson Kolhoff.

Life is sweet.  Enjoy a treat!  Enjoy yourself as much as possible.  Pretty soon we’ll be asking ourselves, How did it so late so soon.  Take time to love, laugh, cry, learn, and move forward.  Life is shorter than it often seems.  

The trick is to be grateful when your mood is high and graceful when it is low.

Richard Carlson

Shucks, I have been good at trying something else..... but evidently I wasn't as good at it as Leonardo! HA!
Good entry. Always makes sense.

Another beautiful day here, looking forward to company, son Mark is coming over.


Love your take on this, "Unexpected gifts come each day." They do and we should pay more attention and be grateful.
