John Seivert: Prevention of skiing, snowboarding injuries

Happiness is not a destination; it is a way of life. I have this ‘pearl of wisdom’ on a large wooden piece of art on the wall of my home office. I see it, read it, and think about it daily. I don’t have to try hard to be happy as I am a gregarious guy. My wife calls me the party closer. We will typically be the last ones to leave any party, with my wife saying, “Well, you did it again; you closed the party, nobody else for you to talk to, so I guess it’s time to go.” I may follow that up with, “Dang, you’re right. I hope I had a chance to talk to everyone.”

She will laugh and say, “Oh yeah, I’m sure you did, several times over.”
