“Nothing can bring you happiness but yourself”–Ralph Waldo Emerson

14 Dec

Talk about winter blues….I am finding it hard to be my usual happy self with this gloomy weather, lack of sunshine and overload of finals exam work.  

When it seems like there are so many reasons to act like the grinch, how do I reclaim my high-charged energetic spirit?


happy place :  a tranquil place witin your mind where you can calm down, restore balance and forget about all the BULLSHIT in the world. It is a mental vacation spot filled with anything that brings you that warm fuzzy ‘life is good’ feeling!

What takes me to my happy place?

Picturing my much-overdue trip to NYC–complete with lychee martinis, marathon shopping trips, reunions with my favorite City Lobster co-workers, and j-walking my way through the cobblestone streets of the Meatpacking District.

Lychee Martini

Lychee Martini Recipe

3 oz vodka

2 oz lychee juice

Splash vermouth

Lychees for garnish

Mix vodka, lychee juice and vermouth in a shaker filled with ice.  Shake briefly and strain into a chilled martini glass.  Garnish with fresh lychees!

Life is way too short to be anything but happy…so corny, but so true.  Where is your happy place?  Take a second and find it!

And if you really can’t, watching this video will have to suffice…..
