A friendly PSA from Maddie the Coonhound 🐶👋
The Wedding Singer (USA, 1997)
going to college is great
getting married is great
having children is great
but implying that there’s something wrong with people who don’t want to do those things and that they’ll never feel fulfilled in life if they never do those things is not great
The best thing about being married is having someone who can fix the emergency toilet paper crisis
watch both their faces go from “courteous TV smile” to “not paid enough for this bullshit”
Good for her!
Calling for everyone who mocked someone who was obviously having a severe mental breakdown to put just as much time and effort into calling attention to her recovery.
HOW CAN WE BE HAPPY ?
Once a group of 50 people was attending a seminar.
Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each one a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.
At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon.
Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it.
Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.
The speaker began— exactly this is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.
Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness.
And this is the purpose of human life.
this speaks to me
I have been meditating and focusing on the importance of inner peace and happiness and I found this message to be a timely one.
Hey, this also works with “get to know your classmates” bingo. Win every time. “I’M THE GUY WHO ATE A PINT AND A HALF OF HUMMUS IN ONE AFTERNOON.”
… I haven’t done the sort of self-trivia in a while, but that’s what I’d use today. I like hummus.
