“The good life," writes Seligman, "consists in deriving happiness by using your signature strengths every day in the main realms of living. The meaningful life adds one more component: using these same strengths to forward knowledge, power or goodness."
A modern day Christmas miracle. The Young One called on Christmas day to tell me that he was grateful that his truck only had a broken water pump and had not blown an oil seal. He told me I was the only one he could call to share this holiday miracle. I laughed. It made my day. YO told me he had thought about what I said about Mr. Big last week. He told me to try to go back to him. I told Young One that Mr.Big’s dad had to go to the hospital today because he was sick. YO told me to go to Big…..I was like hey…I have a sore throat and I am exhausted so I’m not going to see Big….plus I had Big’s foster dog (oh that’s a long complicated story for another time)
It turns out that Big’s Dad just had the stomach flu. I was happy he was okay. I love Big’s Dad, I call him Rico Sauve…..cause he is. It must have been scary for Big. He is so scared of losing his dad.
Big did turn up later in the day. I fed him and he took the foster dog……
