Doing something good for someone else we do for us too, a little bit for mind, for soul and a little bit for our body is the key for a good balance and happiness. Nice thoughts!

miss b said...

We can all take something from your list. It just shows that it really is the very simple thngs which can help us to lead a happier life. Surrounding ourselves with positive people, I believe, makes all the difference. Have a great weekend!
