Have you ever been so deeply engaged in a conversation with another person that time seemed to disappear, you forgot your ego/self and everything just flowed?  This article may provide a hint as to why: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/03/17/talk-deeply-be-happy/#comment-498421

Deep conversations can lead to what Martin Seligman and the positive psychologists call “the engaged life” and “the meaningful life” and then more “authentic happiness”.

Waking up each day ready to enjoy the life your engaged in certainly seems to have made a difference in many a life. We never know what life might present us with on any given day, but if the above is a habit, it seems that when circumstances change we have the skills to adapt.

Thanks for the great post.

Thank you Mary, as Astritotle said, “happiness arises from one’s healthy habits” and it appears that you are heading that way with the adaptive skills you are living day-by-day. Looking forward to your next visit….
