...my daily lesson.
I have abandoned the Lessons from Literature approach. Though I am certain I will still make frequent literary connections, I think it was feeling more of an extension of classroom epiphanies and less about actual learning for me.
And I need to learn.
Yesterday my 95 year old great uncle told me the secret to his age.
He said he tries to be as happy as possible.
While a relatively happy person, I don't know if I can say that I actively try to be as happy as possible.
I try many things: to be as fit as possible, as efficient as possible, and even, frequently, as good as possible.
But I do not think I have ever tried to be as happy as possible.
The idea is ponderous to me.
How can this change my daily life? I will try to find out.
