The Happiness Advantage

Catch it!

There is empirical evidence that happiness can lead to a more productive and successful life, according to Shawn Achor, author of “The Happiness Advantage: Seven Principles.”

Let me say it again, ‘Happiness leads to success.’

Therefore, happiness is not only found at the end of success. Right?

Correct!

Then, be happy – now! Why wait? This information should further encourage you to enjoy your life’s journey. Happiness is that thing that makes the journey not seem so long or arduous. Please forfeit leaning towards the notion that happiness will be found “at the end of” success. For us to assume this – is to rob ourselves of all of the happiness going on around us, right now.

Do you see it? Catch it and ride it all the way to success!

It’s obvious that I’m into this semesters Psychology course; brain insight has got me shook.
I’m eating it up, (it’s almost tangibly in my gut) – so much so, I had to share Shawn’s book.

I hope that you don’t find it cheesy that I’m sharing with you my curriculum course reading.
I’m Qui
and The Happiness Advantage is a read that leads to better mental and physical well-being.

The following list of ideas is not a part of Shawn’s book
but the info is so spot-on, I thought you’d better take a look:

It’s that time again, just before the Arizona sun rises
that I produce for you a topic or two in griot vises.

Let me frame the scenes and set them in place
before laying them out onto this digital space.

I could hammer out a myriad of thoughts and a myriad of views
from all that is good in life to the anxious whoa’s & dangerous lows of world news.

Where shall I start? I’d much prefer to talk about you.
What’s good with you today? Do tell, what you’re up to?

What’s on your agenda? How do you chart the day to go?
In all of your doing and career pursuing don’t forget your flow.

As it pertains to your energy. Please acknowledge when you need to pause or rest.
You can not perform at peak when forgoing eat and sleep; this will not yield you your best.

jumping-jacks.gifToday is a good day to hump onto an opportunity that’s been staring you in the eyes,
it’s easy it’s free and it will bode well for thee – get back to EXERCISE!

Eh, yo! How’s your ENERGETIC FLOW?
If you need a tune up – others may already know. 🙂

Did you rise early today? Did you meditate?
Did you stretch and talk to your body in relate?

I did...
and I thought about you, kid.

At present I am up sipping jo and preparing myself to go out.
The sun is on the rise, I’ve got sunny-anticipations in my eyes
I’ve got to explore what this feeling is about.

What about you? If you see me in transit don’t hesitate to lightly nudge me.
I want to bid you Namaste, hear about your day
and of course encourage you to hug me.

I’m blazing and on fire with happiness and hope today,
I’m Qui
ISO the energy: Qi  as well as peeping your flow today.
‘Looking good. Hey-ey.

Ignore the cute dance.

Always yield your best energy.
There is no substitute synergy.
So put the candy down!

What’s Left

Opportunity over Rabbit hole

What’s left in a world that’s chasing its tail
down a rabbit hole to hell
with an over inflated Wall Street, at the bell
and a healthcare plan that wishes you’d never get well?

I’ll tell you on a dime, exactly What’s Left:
Your GOOD MIND! Now, tend to your health.”

Good morning baby! How’d you sleep last night?
Me? Snug as a bug in a rug; solid and tight.

My dreams were alright, easy going, I’m sure I cooed.
Then I woke up to Life, Wednesday and YOU! All of which is cool.

What’s Left for me today? To hang with you and highlight the good
Since Jon Ossoff won’t be representing that Georgia hood.

And that’s okay, right? The political pool is filled with smoke.
I respect the people’s choice – twas the people who cast the vote.

Let yesterday’s story be wrote and make today memorable still.
What’s Left is opportunity! Go ‘head and cop a feel. 🤗

Making it my own…

I went shopping yesterday and bought a cute little chaise.
I’m in the mood today to rearrange this place.


I’m in the mood today to make a new space
In my life, my heart – renew the smile on my face.

I do meditate.
It’s the best way
to start the day.

What’s Left after you loose your sanity and your cool?
Well, there’s always, a cave and a bib for your drool.😄

But that’s not you! And I’m willing to bet
If you put forth new effort you can increase What’s Left.

Exercise your body, exercise your mind.
You’ll find What’s Left beyond a tighter behind

Is clarity of thought and creativity in flow.
I recommend focusing on YOU – you deserve it, Yo!

So with this beautiful new days begin,
I’m Qui
bidding you encouragement to Win! Win! Win!

Yesterday had its relative depths.
Today: opportunity is absolutely What’s Left.

Take it. Make it your own.
I’ve got your back. You are not alone.

A Happy Heart

a-happy-heart.jpgA happy heart is what I’m working with
I’m happier than the cast of Chapter 2, John Wick.

Have you seen the interview/trailer shtick? It’s got potential burn.
I was captivated by the behind-scenes look at Larry Fishburn.

Isn’t he calling himself Laurence and not Larry now?
Laurence/Larry, Clean face/hairy — I love him anyhow. 😀

A happy heart is mine today! Dare I try to shake it.
It’s deeply rooted in my soul. I’m high and wouldn’t think to fake it.

An opportunity to share goodness? Everytime I see it, I take it.
I’m high y’all with heralding gall – Good is in progress. I make it.

A happy heart is what I’m dealing with. What is it that you’ve got on your chest.
If it’s something other than love, drop that bug and get to doing what works best.

beating-heart

Lighten your burdened load of mundane
and elevate your heart and elongate this chain.

Chain of Love, I’m trying to link it.
No haters in this click. Those suckers will sink it.

Speaking of Chains, I heard that soon there’ll be a halt in melodic excitement
as The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin has announced she’s going into retirement.

Retirement? Now? Isn’t she a spring chicken?
When it comes to Gospel tones Ms. Franklin’s vibes are bone stickin.’

I hate that she’s calling it quits – still pending a few more tour dates.
I do love Aretha Franklin and pray that PROSPERITY remains her life long fate.

Yay!
A Happy Heart is mine today.
I promise you that I’m going out to play.

My retirement is far off.a-happy-heart1
I’ll spend my youth…a productive cost.

I’m learning the ropes and minimizing losts.
I’m utilizing and executing, preparing to be boss.

A Master at the Art of Living draws little distinction between his work and play.
I’m working at mastering the art. Living good yields my heart happy today.

Hey-ey! Whatchu say? Life is tricky and that I should watch out?
A happy heart means vibing smart and cautiously moving about.
I’m not into the wince nor the pout.

Life is at hand and things are looking pretty golden.
I’m Qui
Saying Oui-Oui! I’m producing goods to be beholden.

Approaching life with A Happy Heart
is me doing my best to hold a productive charge.

You’re The ONE

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on September 28, 2016 at 5:13 am

mickey-mirror-test.gifGood morning beloved. GOOD NEWS! Another good score:
You are The ONE that you’ve been waiting for!

Can you believe that? You’ve been waiting on change.
Though it wouldn’t be found in your outfit or the style of your mane.

It’s your ‘INSIDE game;’ that game that’s going on between your two ears.
Are you going with a flow, dismissin’ your intuition out of fear?

Here-here! I beg of thee to think again.
You have the capacity within yourself to WIN.

Don’t judge yourself by what your peers are doing.
Life is to be lived; top or bottom, we’re all screwing.

Life is a lot like sex, protect yourself from various players.
Some will bring new life but others will be dream slayers.

Pick and choose your battles and always have your back.
Don’t depend on others to make up your voids or lack.

Learn yourself and strengthen your position.
Command the universe to move your way – manifest your vision.

I’m all into it. I’m down for working hard and having fun
I’m Qui
not looking for anyone to deliver me. I am The ONE.

mickey-mirror-break-through

We are The ONE that we’ve all been looking for – in individual sum.
Go for it. Whatever it is that you want. You can have it. You’re The ONE.

On THIS Monday Morning

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement, Sports on September 26, 2016 at 9:07 am

On THIS Monday Morning, I am doing the most.
Yep, I lost a bet — I’m making bacon and toast.

It was a good Sunday night and the Dallas Cowboys won.
I was tussling with logistics – I was having all of the fun.

We’re in between a move, as the end of the month does approach.
We’re focused on building an estate that will acreage encroach

at least a .5-mile radius around my erected structure.
The custom builder I’m courting is an architectural MOTHER! 🙂

Today I was up, yet again, at the crack of dawn,
working out, running logistic routes and getting my “move” on.

I was happy at the onset – I woke with no yawning.
On the real, I was happy about kicking it with you THIS Morning.

What have you got up, what’s your future looking like?
Gotta presentation today? Gonna grab the mic?

Gonna “show ’em what you’ve got;” gonna carry your weight?
I’m down with doing the most — but not too much on one plate.

Make it good for thee, all smiles and no mourning.
Give praise to the Creator On THIS Monday Morning.

YOUR LIFE is oober special and I’m sure that you know.
I’m Qui
Concurring with thee. I couldn’t resist saying so.  X O

On THIS Monday Morning
Make each move your best move.

Let #Coffee be a metaphore for life. You can’t stop living…


Okay, what’s really going on?
Whatcha’ up to kinfolk?
Are you getting high off of life? Because her successes can be dope.

When you’re at wits end – grip tight, the knot in the rope.
“To realize a Win!” – should always be your objective quote.

Hump THIS

It’s mid-week at this point and I’m running at full speed.
I’m over here nourishing; a planter, I sew seeds

of good deeds and encouraging measures.
Those coming after us are tomorrows treasures.

Dare we lose sight?
Treat them wrong and they won’t return right.
Share with them your “good welfare” plight
and let them know you are a cheerleader in their life…

If they do not know.
Tomorrow wears a brave face – hoping their disparity will not show.

Open up your third eye, turn around and help those soul behind you.
You don’t have to be well versed in everything… for this one thing you can do.

HUMP THAT.
Hop onto the “positivity train” and track that.

Pick up relativity and help to move them along.
Friends don’t let friends reside in a sad song.

Misery may love company and company you are.
Don’t let misery encroach on your character – remain the shining star.

People talk to you because you are wise. They feel free to approach you and dump.
Thank God that they turned to you for LIGHT – for this is great news to HUMP.

Jump on it. Don’t miss a positive seed sewing opportunity.
I know you have it within you – look how long you’ve been hanging with me. 😀


Humping positivity
is key and Qui is my name.
Happy Hump Day baby – make it a WINS DAY not a maybe, 
for anything else would be a waste and a shame.
