Having Fun And Being Happy
Too many of us look for fun in the hopes of finding happiness. In that search, we eventually discover that having fun does not often lead to happiness. That’s because having fun, which is usually found in the doing, is quite different from happiness, which generally resides in the being. However, doing many types of fun activities can produce happy feelings. This book, Having Fun and Being Happy, helps children learn and understand through simple examples that fun activities, if practiced and performed in a certain manner, can indeed produce residual, more permanent, pleasurable feelings of happiness, contentment and joy.
THINGS THAT CAN BE GOOD, BETTER & BEST
Philip Stanhope, the 4th Earl of Chesterfield, said; “Whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well.” In most instances, applying some foresight into not merely doing something good, but doing what it takes to do it better and even going farther to try to do it best will produce a much more gratifying experience than initially imagined. A slightly larger vision with a little extra effort can quickly and easily turn good things into better and best things. This book gives examples to young readers of things that are good, how they might be made better and what may be one of several ways to make them best. If you think about it, there seems to be no end to good things that we can make better and even best.
