Back from paradise

:-) Yes we're back.
Two weeks in Thailand, pure paradise and now we're back to work, to routine, to... Paying for paradise. But it's not all bad. There is one thing I brought back with me (accept the shopping of course), it's a simple thing we all take for granted, a smile. I know it's may sound corny or maybe even stupid but I am talking about the concept of smiling as a way of life and not just a facial feature.
Truth be told I am a positive person and I do smile a lot, but in paradise I came to realize there is a difference between smiles. So today I woke up with a different look at life, I believe it's basically a look at now instead of yesterday or tomorrow. It's not for lack of ambitions or dreams, but it is the choice of not living them before they happen.
There is a famous line from "Field of dreams" that says: "If you build it, they will come", and I say If you smile they will stay.
Good morning :-)

I've been asked by my nephew a few days ago which is better: working your all life so you can retire with enough money to live well in your remaining years or just work to survive and have fun as much as you can? I think it all depends on your status in life. Age, KIDS, family status etc. But I've decided to try (at least) and combine the two theories.
One must do something one likes and good at that will earn them enough money to enjoy life as they go and leave some for later. So to put my money where my mouth is I am leaving for Thailand tomorrow :-) and if you don't hear from me for a while, well... I will leave you with this image

Would you like some fries with this copy?

Why does it bother me so much? People say it's an ego thing. I don't consider myself a person with an inflated ego (maybe that's...
