Happiness is doing new things with old friends

Recently I stumbled onto a YouTube video. It instantly helped me mentally coalesce all those reads about positive psychology and happiness ingested over the years into a pithy one liner. I intend to constantly re-chant this one liner to help me orient myself to the right goal.

“Happiness is doing new things with old friends”

Being another soulless hamster chasing the double mortgage ? It’s a no from me dog. The senior designation where you get 300 emails instead of 200. It’s a no from me dog. Or the pitiful upgrade to platinum card where they now  give a complimentary cookie on check in. It’s a no from me dog. Instead a shachiku like me (and you ?) ought to maybe try working at making time to do new things with old friends.

  1. Right Shiva, see you in Moscow in the autumn… I’ll get you a ticket to the Russia v NI match… that’ll be a new thing for you, with an old friend!

    • Sorry I took some time to revert. I read your comment and immediately started packing. Now “all my bags are packed and I am ready to go”…..Russia vs NI. You know who Ia m rooting for ?? ME. As in rooting for ME to see it !!

  2. 7/9/12 – Russia v Northern Ireland. Venue is yet to be confirmed, but very likely Moscow (possible St Petersburg, either way a great chance to see wonderful places).
