Day 50

Fifty is the smallest number that is the sum of two non-zero square numbers in two distinct ways:

50 = 12 + 72 = 52 + 52

It is also the sum of three squares, 50 = 32 + 42 + 52, and the sum of four squares, 50 = 62 + 32 + 22 + 12.

It is a Harshad number. In mathematics, a harshad number (or Niven number) in a given number base is an integer that is divisible by the sum of its digits when written in that base. Harshad numbers in base n are also known as n-harshad (or n-Niven) numbersHarshad numbers were defined by D. R. Kaprekar, a mathematician from India.

Now that is a thing you know.

In this life of emotional currency and emotional intelligence, let’s not forget that there is also a part of life that we need to give equal attention too. That is the logics, science and math of life. Life isn’t all emotions and feelings. Sometimes life is just about facts and only facts.

Be a well rounded human.

Day 6

Woke up feeling irritated and grumpy. I have been trying to shake off the negativity all day. My normal sunny and happy disposition is a bit cloudy. I can feel it in my bones and hear it in my voice.

Finally decided to have a picnic lunch. Getting some fresh air might help improve my mood.

What do you do to improve your attitude when you feel it going off into negativity?

Last Post of the Year….

This will be post 365. Next post will be 1 January 2021….here is my profound statement for the new year. It’s not an original idea, I edited it, still it is worthy of the last post of the year.

Practice the pause.

When in doubt, pause. When angry, pause. When tired, pause. When stressed, pause. When happy, pause. When hungry, pause. When hurt, pause. When jealous, pause. When excited, pause. When nervous, pause.

And when you pause, pray.

Then when at peace, speak if you must. Otherwise be silent.

Here Comes a New Begining

Walk in to 2021 with a clear plan. Do not carry with you any resentment or pain of the past.

If you owe me, forget it, we’re square. I never loan, only give and don’t expect a repayment.

If you wronged me, I forgave you already.

If you’re angry with me, I’ve let it go. You should too.

If we aren’t speaking, I truly wish you well.

If you feel I’ve wronged you, I might have, I am sorry for all I did.

Build on the positive of the past. My past two years have been simplified (2019) and focused (2020).

2021 is the year of looking forward and positive progress.

Here’s to a grand adventure.

As the End Draws Near

I know that 2020 for some people was a crap year. The virus, financial struggles, storms and other woes impacted many many lives. A lot of humans will be happy to see 2020 leave and a shiny New Year come rolling in. I get it, I really do.

The thing is, for me and my family, it wasn’t that bad. We had to adjust our daily lifestyle for Covid. We had a few health scares that we are currently getting through. We had to deal with several hurricanes. In particular, hurricane Sally was rude and took out the fence around the back yard. We had a small financial set back and couldn’t buy a house yet. A new home is on the horizon soon in 2021. We had our fair share of bad this year. However for the most part, 2020 wasn’t the Armageddon that most people are complaining about.

I’m having a difficult time commiserating with all the stressed and anxious people. I am not diminishing your pain. I just don’t feel the same. Instead, I feel blessed for all the things we got through this year, for all the love I have in my life, and for all the happiness that surrounds me. Maybe it is that I choose to see the positive and overlook the negative. I am not sorry for my perspective.

I can be sympathetic for your suffering, help you in any way I can and pray for you. I don’t have to apologize for or hide my happy.

This is Happy

This is happy me. I like happy me. I have been happy me off and on in my life, however I have been consistently happy for almost five years now.

My secret to happiness is this, live simply, make love your filter for what you do, and do not entertain negativity even for a second. Make love and positivity a priority. So much so that there is no room in your day for negativity, hate, jealousy, or disrespect.

Happiness is what is left when love is your focus.

A Bright future

Every year I decide on a theme for my work and a goal for my life. 2019 it was simplify. 2020 was focus.

Now is the time to think about what you want to accomplish next year and work toward that goal. Ask yourself some of the questions I’m asking myself.

What is important in your life?What is at your core and how can you improve it?

I’m not sure yet what my goal is for 2021 other than it will have something to do with process, improvement and adventure.
