sssssssssssssssh! … here’s the secret to happiness!

The secret to happiness is pretty straightforward. Learn to Live with what you have. Never grieve over what you don’t have. And simply don’t have any expectations.
Once a man met a Sufi Master and wanted to know the secret to happiness. And the Master told him this story.
There was once a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror and noticed she had only 3 strands of hair on her head. “Well”, she said, “I think I will braid my hair today.” So she did and she had a wonderful day. The next day, she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two strands of hair on her head. “Hmm,” she said, “I think I’ll part my hair down the middle today.” So she did and she had a grand day! The next day, she looked in the mirror and noticed she had only one hair on her head. “Well” she said, “I am going to wear a ponytail today.” So she did and had a fun, fun day! The next day, she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed there wasn’t a single hair on her head. “Yeah!”, she exclaimed, “I don’t have to fix my hair today!”.’
That ability, said the Master, to look at what you have and not worry about what you don’t have, is the simple secret to happiness. Learn to Live with what you have, you too will have have a grand, wonderful, fun, fun Life!
