Even though I’m only a smidge into this book, I am loving his style. It holds my interest as well as inspires. Here’s my question. Would you like to read it too and form a book club here on my blog?

You feel good when you meet up with someone who inspires you. It’s like breathing in fresh air! When you are in their midst, you can feel the activation of life building within you.

Wouldn’t it be lovely to be happy all the time? This is something we all want. And, we can be happy whenever we want to remember this: we have committed to a happier lifestyle. Loosen up with a smile! Smile as often as you can remember to.
GETTING TO HAPPY: Learning to Read Emotional Messages, Barbara Dean Aliaga
Try to picture what you want. For instance, choose a feeling you want to happen between the two of you. You may imagine this: I’d like to spend a couple of moments together feeling easy with one another, that’s just what I would like. Now, you go into the room where Bob is watching TV and you sit down and read a book. You are not looking for an outcome. You are going to enjoy what you wanted: You want to feel easy. All of the pressure is released and nothing but ease is expected. You can create this!
Fun is a state of mind. You don’t need an objective benchmark to know if you are enjoying yourself. You can be lounging in your home, reading a good book, gardening, painting, creating a new recipe, talking with friends, redecorating, shopping, walking, dancing, swimming, or even cleaning up a corner of the world you have special fondness for. You know you are having fun when you can breathe deeply, smile easily and love the one you are with!
You can only think one thought at a time. You can hold one attitude at a time. What does happy feel like to you? As you become more familiar with this feeling and you think thoughts that hold this matching energy, you will naturally be happy without working at it. Happiness has a different feeling from any other emotion. I think everyone interprets happiness in different ways, so the work is keeping track of how you feel when you are happy and repeat this feeling often.
This is a day for lighthearted fun! Cupid is not a serious character! — a little mischieveous, I’d say. This is a day to smile! Let your sunshine out! Sing, dance, speak in words that make eternal sense: ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE… doo, dah, doo, dah, doo!
All you need is love! Today is Madly In Love with ME Day! Start with making a list of ways you will show love to yourself. This is probably the hardest list you will ever make. So at least find two loving things you will definitely do for yourself today.
With no judgement, no decision, emotions send warnings of recommendations so you can achieve your personal goals. As you recognize emotions are your friends, your loyal servants, you become more familiar with their messages and you widen your options for heading to your personal destination. Amazing discovery!
Fear taps at my door every day. I say, Hello fear. But when I answer the door, it evaporates and is not there at all. The news I read as a child and the news I can read on my iPhone now continues to insist, fear is knocking at your door. Open the door and it won’t be there.
Happy Chinese New Year!! For me, it’s all about celebrating the many ways we channel energy. A good day to celebrate life!

One of the interwoven themes in the book, Getting To Happy: Learning to Read Emotional Messages, is the recommendation to STOP in your tracks the moment you recognize uncomfortable emotions.

If I am honest…. My hands are big and bumpy with bulging veins. My feet burn with mild throbbing, vibrating pains. My stomach is unfeelingly large, old and lazy. My vision blurs in and out and mostly hazy. My arms are achy but able to lift. My hair is thinning. My scalp adrift. My nose
I wonder where the time has gone. I’m about to celebrate the first birthday of Hugo Emil, our second grandchild. We celebrated at the annual Tulip Festival, I’m still working happily at The Harman Eye Clinic, AND, I still have my mind set on writing more books. I have a lot to say and hope

When you take a test, you study for it. When you have a dinner party, you plan for it. Doesn’t it make sense that if you want to have a happy day, you envision it? Positive thinking takes a little planning at the beginning of each day. After the planning takes place, it is smooth sailing.
There are so many ways to feel good. Here are some: Wake up with the enthusiasm of a child. A child wakes up with surprise, readiness and willingness to explore whatever is around. It can be a toy, a first experience with snow, a shadow, the sun or anything else that presents itself. Before you
Even a child now understands that to be president you need enough money to publically slander your opposing candidate in order to win the election.

Why do I continually talk about positive thinking? Why do I continually check on my own negative thinking, say, “Thank you, but no thank you!” to the thoughts that bring me feelings of doubt, pain and worry? Why is it so hard to stay positive? Perhaps the answer is this. In order to believe, I
