I’ve had a little poster on my fridge for a pretty long time. I really like it, but it’s just time for it to move on. I have no idea where I got it, or who the author is. I’m going to put it in the Give Away Basket, so next time there’s a gathering, someone else can take it home. Here’s what it says:
Be Smart. Be Healthy. Be Happy.
But be smart first.
Then you know how to be healthy.
And frequently happy follows.
Be smart first.
A. R. Kesler
P. S. from Patricia To me, smart means getting the emotions out of the way and looking at something straight on. Then you can see clearly what’s going on. And make clear decisions about it, without being all roiled up. It’s a lot easier to be happy that way, to my way of thinking… So that’s obviously why I liked this little piece, and how it ended up on the fridge. That – and the fact that there’s a cute little partly green graphic at the top. : >
