Nickerblog and 30 ways to happiness.

Mr Nickerson came up with a Pretty neat list of 30 ways to a happier life But he seems to have only come up with 29 , I reprinted the list with comments and added #30.

Go check out Nickerblog: 30 random ways to a happier life.

30 random ways to a happier life.

1. Learn early on to enjoy warm soda. Trust me, it comes in handy. While you're at it, learn to drink black coffee.

2. Let go of your need to make all the choices all of the time. Other people have better ones sometimes.

3. Learn to play guitar, juggle, ride a unicycle, do a backflip and play Scrabble.

4. Avoid trends. Go for timeless fashion.

5. Skip the iPhone. Get a Blackberry. ( I really want an Iphone)

6. Learn to enjoy warm beer. (this one is more
advanced, but well worth it). YUK

7. Pick a team in any sport and be a hardcore fan.

8. Combine all of your e-mail addresses.

9. Own a car that doesn't own you. There may be no
bigger waste of stress than worrying about the looks of a car. Let it go.

10. Love what you love. Don't trick yourself or others. (This should be #1)

11. Cut out people that bum you out.

12. Find joy in condiments. Similarly, acquire tastes just for the hell of it. Like Sauerkraut and Whisky. But not together. Unless you're high.

13. Stop imagining that people are saying things about you. They're mostly just worried about themselves. (this should be #2)

14. Ignore social constraints if more convenient or sensible than abiding by them.

15. Learn to play D&D. If you're already laughing this one off, learn it immediately. ( Make it World of Warcraft and you are on track )

16. Feel free to simply let parts of your past go. (like those crazy ex girlfriends)

17. Get rid of the stuff you're hoarding. It's an emotional drain.(have you been talking to my wife?)

18. Don't get too attached to any one material thing.
It's just stuff.

19. Learn the basic rules of the major sports.

20. Get good at Frisbee.

21. Whoever makes you happy most of the time, that's "the one."

22. Change is unavoidable. Embrace it, on every level.

23. Learn how to use a gun.

24. When it comes to parking, pay the most for the closest once in a while.

25. Treat yourself to nice underwear. Life is too short. ( don't get this one it seems all the same to me but I am a guy)

26. Get a passport, even if you never plan on leaving the country.

27. Learn how to play poker. (only if you want to get beat down)

28. Don't be too afraid of "street meat."

29. Always be ready to let go of your original plan...

He didn't have a #30 so i will add my own.

30. Tell those People and Friends that are important to you how you feel.
tell you your kids that you love em. You never know what tomorrow will bring.

This is actually my #1 to many of us go thru life Not telling the people that we care about how we feel.
