My computer desktop, littered with its many files and folders, is a scary place. There’s so much stuff scattered everywhere that I don’t remember where all of it came from actually.
And I’ll admit it. I’m addicted to the Post-It Note feature on my computer. You can create virtual notes instead of having them strung all over your desk. The problem is, you compile so many notes that they’re stacked on top of each. And once that happens, you never know what you’ll find hiding in there.
Well, today, I got to cleaning out the virtual stack. When I’m having a bad day, I clean. I’m weird like that. I have this philosophy that cleaning your personal living space will help clean your inner space.
While cleaning, I found a note that had only a web link pasted into it. I wondered what it was and why I kept it, so I clicked on it. It pulled up a webpage with “The World’s Happiest Facts.” Of all the times in my life that I could use some happy, this was it. So I put the cleaning on hold and got to reading.
I'm glad I did. I needed that dose of happiness today, and thought maybe there were others out there who need some happy, too. So, I thought I’d share my favorites from the list.
(To be clear, I don’t have any idea if these facts are actual facts or not. I just know they put a smile on my face, and that’s a fact.)
