Happier.com: Online Tools to Improve Happiness


This website is cool. I used to work with the guy who was a retail stock person. He wasn’t very smart. I used to tell him every now and then when he made mistakes to watch the packages incoming. I had found a sale online and ordered him a new brain to arrive any day. I used to work with this waiter guy who was really screwed up. I told him affirmations help. He bought some pep-talk be-happy books but wouldn’t do real affirmations. I saw him eons later. He was so excited telling me he still read a book of quotes I gave him daily. I kept thinking. I think I found one of these tiny 1.5 inch by 1.5 inch book thingys somewhere with some happy quotes and gave it to him. Now, there is a cool website also. I guess there is two sides to life and we are all only on one side of it. Mine has always been good.
