As the second theme of my book, Talk UP^ Tucson... is an exploration of community prosperity, I am signed on to google alerts for everyday posts on both book themes: happiness and prosperity. Almost every day, I post Facebook comments on articles related to happiness, but it's a rare article on prosperity that stirs my interest. This article is such a rare find that I am posting it (also) on my blog.
The pop-up ads are annoying but the article is worth the distractions. Here's a question for my readers: are you defining prosperity down in your life as the article suggests? If so, how and what do you feel about this change? I think I am doing that, out of necessity as well as adjusting the reality described in the article. Mostly, I feel that it's leading me to live a simpler life, but sometimes I feel angry and depressed about what I can't "have" that I think I "want." To be honest, I have what I need and practicing daily gratitude helps me stay focused on the cup more than half full. What about you?
