Shane Nickerson has a pretty cool post up, 30 Random Ways to a Happier Life.

Some of them I totally get...

4. Avoid trends. Go for timeless fashion. I'd amend that to say go for your own style, that makes you feel like you.

10. Love what you love. Don't trick yourself or others. Bingo.

11. Cut out people that bum you out.
Buh bye, Hubby #1. Don't let the door hit you on the ass on your way out, Miss Negativity. Lose my numbers, Back-Stabbing Weasel Boy.

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

25. Treat yourself to nice underwear. Life is too short.
Hear, hear. I don't even blink an eye at the $150 price tag on a French black lace bra, because I KNOW that 1) it will be more comfortable and last longer than its mass-produced $15 counterpart and 2) I will feel fabulous in it. And life is too short not to feel fabulous.

22. Change is unavoidable. Embrace it, on every level. Like the theory of Evolution states (in a much boiled down version) change or die.

But there are a few that make me go "huh what?":

23. Learn how to use a gun. Call me Canadian, but I don't see how learning to use a gun (which I do know how to use and have my license, btw) is going to make my life happier. It did however give me more attitude.

27. Learn how to play poker. Bwahahahaha... Poker does not make my life happier. However, the people I've met through poker do make my life much, much happier, so I guess it balances out.

And I have a couple of my own that I'd like to throw out there:
  • Do something you're a bit afraid of. It adds a bit of spice to your life, and gives your soul a boost when you conquer it.
  • Do something creative. We all have it in us, no matter what parents or teachers may have said.
  • Have an indulgence. It doesn't have to be big or expensive; my favourite is the expensive and delicious raspberry martini at the Rooftop Bar in the Park Hyatt. For $14 I get an hour or so of elegant surroundings, great views and interesting conversations. Sounds like a deal to me.
  • Find a spot where you can go to observe the quiet world for a bit...it helps restore perspective.
  • Don't knit with cheap yarn! No really, don't do it no matter how attractive the price tag is! Every inch of yarn needed for a project will pass through your fingers....do you want to feel 400 yards of scratchy, nasty acrylic or of a sumptuous silk and angora blend?
  • Play. Acting like a kid sometimes is good for you, so the experts say. And even if they didn't say that, fuck 'em, it's fun.

    Because by learning to use a gun, you've de-mystified it. You can now use one and teach others to use one, safely.

    I dunno. I'm glad I know how to use one.

    Yay for nice underwear!

    $150 for a bra!!!!!!!!!! Holy guacamole, you have some well cared for boobs my dear. Good to know.

    I didn't read the list, but I'd definitely have GO OUTSIDE on there, or maybe even go as far as going out into nature. Doing that rejuvinates me every time.
