The Trifecta Weekend writing challenge is: We want you to give us thirty-three words of advice. Your advice can be to anyone or about anything. We only ask that you make it uniquely yours.
Waiting to be Happy
We are what our imaginations dream ourselves to be.
The trick is in learning to work the imagination to our advantage.
We might as well be happy while we’re waiting to be happy!
Until next time . . . I love you

I love this!! I wish I could be that happy even with all those blacked out teeth! haha! Good one, Linda!
Ah thanks Lisa. I think she might be one of those people who sees the mouth as half full! 😀
haha! …and if she grows tired of it, she can head over to Pottery Barn!
Now THAT is a smile lol!
I wanted her to be smiling from ear to ear but I just realized i forgot draw her ears on! 😀
oops lol 😉
I would be very happy if the math lady came back and gave me another math lesson. She really rocks! Other ladies we know are special too, but hey: nobody beats Ms. Math!
THAT’S 33 words!
One math lady post coming up Ronnie!! She’s been on vacation but due back next week! 😀
Very good advice!
Ah Thanks Deanabo! 😀
I’ve always liked the quote by Abe Lincoln, “People are as happy as they make up their minds to be.”
Oh I’ve always loved that quote too, Ann. And I believe it l00 percent! 😀
I love that quote Ann posted! Happiness is a perception and solely relies on what you choose it to be…
Oh you are so right Marie. And I find that my level of happiness always corresponds to my ability to distract myself from myself.
Just stare at shiny stuff all day, that’ll distract you fro-SQUIRREL! What was I saying?
LOL!! Running to get shiny tinsel from Christmas decoration box as I type this.
Hahahaha! Don’t trip over the SQUIRREL!
Oh thank you Sandy! 😀
Thank you Sandy. 😀
Love the optimism. So ibvious yet so overlooked.
Well, I always try to be optimistic anyway! 😀
glad i’m getting my teeth fixed next week so if i’m happy i can smile..lol
Ah! The best thing about getting your teeth fixed is on the way home from the Dentist’s office!
yes, heavily drugged!
Oh yes! That’s even better!
you know it!
Whistles ….always look on the bright side of life…. 🙂
Oh I see you’re over here on the bright side too Rambllings! YAY! 😀
My imagination won’t cooperate half the time xD
Haha! Well I guess that means you’ve got a 50/50 chance of seeing the glass half full! 😀
Being happy while waiting to be happy is definitely better than worrying about if you’ll ever be happy. That’s good advice.
Thanks for linking up!
Oh thank you Trifecta Editor! (Lisa maybe?) 😀
🙂 your answer makes me happy
Ah! thanks Uneven Steven! 😀
I guess if I pretend long enough, it will become the truth. I like this advice.
So glad you liked it Tara. I guess it’s a spin on fake it til you make it! 😀
Optimism! I love it. I agree you have to choose to be happy. And I love the thought of being happy while waiting to be happy.
Thank you Gina! You’re right. Happiness is nothing more than a decision to be happy IMHO! 😀
That makes perfect sense. We just need for the imagination to kick in. I liked this a lot but this is not your usual stuff. In any case, bravo!
Thank you Lumdog. The other advice I was going to give was what my mother told me in all seriousness when I was about 7. “Linda, promise me you’ll never marry a jockey.” I kept that promise too! HA!
sounds like a Zig Ziglar-ism to me. 🙂 I like it.
Oh Gosh! High praise! Thank you Barbara! 😀
I wish I could do this. If I could, I’d be happier. (see what I did there)
LOL!! Yes I do! It is funny how the brain is so tricky like that! 😀
As someone once said to me: why worry before there’s anything to worry about? Great advice, Linda.
Oh that is so true Kymm! Sometimes I’ll find myself flipping through my thoughts trying to remember what I was worrying about earlier. LOL!!
She would be happier if she could get those piano keys arrnged properl- What?
Oh…it’s a beautiful smile!
LOL!! and you should hear her rendition of “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth on her two front teeth! She really rocks it.
Thanks Katy! 😀
