They look like I I want to remind the audience that happiness very often equals a simple life. And here's some tips to get there. But before we get there, what is your perfect day look like? Well, it's interesting. You say that because while you were describing what I would really enjoy a day of nice cup of coffee, a good workout in the morning, that sort of thing. I think I actually had the perfect day that turned into almost a perfect weekend this last weekend. So it was the Super Bowl weekend and I traditionally make this this big vat of chili and we we eat chili all weekend, and we have Ah, fun time with it, but I had Had secured some other recipes, and I just told my bride I said, you know, let me just cook for the whole weekend, and I'll just take care of everybody and I she, she noted it going into it. She's like your kind of giddy about this cooking all weekend thing, and I really was. I was in the kitchen. I was making food. I was just pouring love in tow. Into these dishes for my family, and they all turned out well, and everybody enjoy them, and they were so complimentary on how everything was. But when I think of like perfect moments in life It's that kind of thing. It's like something simple, but it's something that my family benefits from. And we have this like, perfect calm and peace and just joy in in the in the emotion of that moment, and it was really one of the happiest days of my life in the last year that we had, and I like I said, I kind of turned it into the whole weekend. Wow. Okay, so you you proved my point, and your listeners could really learn from that and your kids, By the way, they're they're learning and watching. They see that you as Dad you You get such joy from simple pleasures, and that's teaching them to look for the same thing in their lives. So, Kevin, Here's some other kids to your listeners to gradually uncomplicated their lives. Cool Number one. Learn from the past and get the heck out of there. That means no residing in the past. No could've would've should've Don't beat yourself up. You want to teach yourself and you want to teach your Children that this is just a stepping stone. When you make a mistake, toe learn, you learn from the experiences. I love this quote. Half mistake's Should teach you to create a wonderful future not to cause you to be afraid of it. So past mistakes should be learning experiences to focus on being productive. Not busy. There's a very big difference. People get them confused and and that is a simple pleasure when you really get good at knowing the difference between productive And busy that you don't just get things done. Get the right things done. The right things done. So you want to ask yourself every step of the way is what I'm doing today is just getting me in the direction of my goal for the day or my goal for the week or the gold for my life. But stop and ask yourself that question. Hurry. Let's things be less than perfect..
