    No facial change, because this is normal.

    2. You have stopped caring about what you look like around them.

    They may have seen you at your best, but they have definitely seen you at your worst.

      some mornings are worse than others…..

             because you two are equally mature. 

            5. You can communicate through facial expressions alone.

              no matter how crazy the two of you are.

              6. You really do finish each others sentences…

                And typically high five afterwards

                7. You have many inside jokes others could never begin to understand… and there’s a good chance you have a handshake as well.

                  only practice can make it this perfect.

                  8. You know without words when they are having a bad day, and exactly what to do about it.

                    Because if you can’t make them laugh, no one can

                    9. You know everything about each other, and you’re still together.

                      I wouldn’t give up on that either 

                      10. Pants are over-rated when the two of you are just hanging out, and not always in a sexual way… you’re just that comfortable around them.

                        11. You have shows you MUST watch together, and know the consequences of watching them without the other person.

                          Pretty much sums it up

                          12. You are pretty much attached at the hip- not in a weird controlling way – but simply because there is no one you would rather spend your time with – they just get you.

                            10 Things Happy People Do Differently

                            10 Things Happy People Do Differently

                            Think being happy is something that happens as a result of luck, circumstance, having money, etc.? Think again.

                            Happiness is a mindset. And if you’re looking to improve your ability to find happiness, then check out these 10 things happy people do differently.

                            Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions. -Dalai Lama

                            1. Happy people find balance in their lives.

                            Folks who are happy have this in common: they’re content with what they have, and don’t waste a whole lot of time worrying and stressing over things they don’t. Unhappy people do the opposite: they spend too much time thinking about what they don’t have. Happy people lead balanced lives. This means they make time for all the things that are important to them, whether it’s family, friends, career, health, religion, etc.

                            2. Happy people abide by the golden rule.

                            You know that saying you heard when you were a kid, “Do unto others as you would have them do to you.” Well, happy people truly embody this principle. They treat others with respect. They’re sensitive to the thoughts and feelings of other people. They’re compassionate. And they get treated this way (most of the time) in return.

                            3. Happy people don’t sweat the small stuff.

                            One of the biggest things happy people do differently compared to unhappy people is they let stuff go. Bad things happen to good people sometimes. Happy people realize this, are able to take things in stride, and move on. Unhappy people tend to dwell on minor inconveniences and issues, which can perpetuate feelings of sadness, guilt, resentment, greed, and anger.

                            4. Happy people take responsibility for their actions.

                            Happy people aren’t perfect, and they’re well aware of that. When they screw up, they admit it. They recognize their faults and work to improve on them. Unhappy people tend to blame others and always find an excuse why things aren’t going their way. Happy people, on the other hand, live by the mantra:

                            “There are two types of people in the world: those that do and those that make excuses why they don’t.”

                            5. Happy people surround themselves with other happy people.

                              One defining characteristic of happy people is they tend to hang out with other happy people. Misery loves company, and unhappy people gravitate toward others who share their negative sentiments. If you’re struggling with a bout of sadness, depression, worry, or anger, spend more time with your happiest friends or family members. Chances are, you’ll find that their positive attitude rubs off on you.

                              6. Happy people are honest with themselves and others.

                              People who are happy often exhibit the virtues of honesty and trustworthiness. They would rather give you candid feedback, even when the truth hurts, and they expect the same in return. Happy people respect people who give them an honest opinion.

                              7. Happy people show signs of happiness.

                              smile

                                This one may sound obvious but it’s a key differentiator between happy and unhappy people. Think about your happiest friends. Chances are, the mental image you form is of them smiling, laughing, and appearing genuinely happy. On the flip side, those who aren’t happy tend to look the part. Their posture may be slouched and you may perceive a lack of confidence.

                                8. Happy people are passionate.

                                Another thing happy people have in common is their ability to find their passions in life and pursue those passions to the fullest. Happy people have found what they’re looking for, and they spend their time doing what they love.

                                9. Happy people see challenges as opportunities.

                                Folks who are happy accept challenges and use them as opportunities to learn and grow. They turn negatives into positives and make the best out of seemingly bad situations. They don’t dwell on things that are out of their control; rather, they seek solutions and creative ways of overcoming obstacles.

                                10. Happy people live in the present.

                                While unhappy people tend to dwell on the past and worry about the future, happy people live in the moment. They are grateful for “the now” and focus their efforts on living life to the fullest in the present. Their philosophy is:

                                There’s a reason it’s called “the present.” Because life is a gift.

                                So if you’d like to bring a little more happiness into your life, think about the 10 principles above and how you can use them to make yourself better.
