Reasons Behind Children's Unexpected Behavior



​    1. If your child lies to you often, it is because you over-react too harshly to their inappropriate​ behavior.
    2. If your child is not taught to confide in you about their mistakes, you have lost them.
    3. If your child had poor self-esteem, it is because you advice them more than you encourage them.
    4. If your child does not stand up for themselves, it is because from a young age you have disciplined them regularly in public.
    5. If your child takes things that do not belong to them, it is because when you buy them things, you don't let them chose what they want.
    6. If your child is cowardly, it is because you help them too quickly.
    7. If your child does not respect other people's feelings, it is because instead of speaking to your child, you order and command them.
    8. If your child is too quick to anger, it is because you give too much attention to misbehavior and you give little attention to good behavior.
    9. If your child is excessively jealous, it is because you only congratulate them when they successfully complete something and not when they improve at something even if they don't successfully complete it.
    10. If your child intentionally disturbs you, it is because you are not physically affectionate enough.
    11. If your child is openly defiant, it is because you openly threaten to do something but don't follow through.
    12. If your child is secretive, it is because they don't trust that you won't blow things out of proportion.
    13. If your child talks back to you, it is because they watch you do it to others and think its normal behavior.
    14. If your child doesn't listen to you but listens to others, it is because you are too quick to make decisions.
    15. If your child rebels it is because they know you care more about what others think than what is right.

Technology: What is Google DeepMind


 
iStockGoogle
 
DeepMind is an artificial intelligence division within Google that was created after Google bought University College London spinout, DeepMind, for a reported £400 million
 
 
The division, which employs around 140 researchers at its lab in a new building at Kings Cross, London, is on a mission to solve general intelligence and make machines capable of learning things for themselves. It plans to do this by creating a set of powerful general-purpose learning algorithms that can be combined to make an AI system or "agent". 
 
Suleyman explains
These are systems that learn automatically. They're not pre-programmed, they're not handcrafted features. We try to provide a large set of raw information to our algorithms as possible so that the systems themselves can learn the very best representations in order to use those for action or classification or predictions.
 
The systems we design are inherently general. This means that the very same system should be able to operate across a wide range of tasks.
 
That's why we've started as we have with the Atari games. We could have done lots of really interesting problems in narrow domains had we spent time specifically hacking our tools to fit the real world problems - that could have been very, very valuable. 
 
Instead we've taken the principle approach of starting on tools that are inherently general. 
AI has largely been about pre-programming tools for specific tasks: in these kinds of systems, the intelligence of the system lies mostly in the smart human who programmed all of the intelligence into the smart system and subsequently these are of course rigid and brittle and don't really handle novelty very well or adapt to new settings and our fundamentally very limited as a result.
 
We characterise AGI as systems and tools which are flexible and adaptive and that learn.  
We use the reinforcement learning architecture which is largely a design approach to characterise the way we develop our systems. This begins with an agent which has a goal or policy that governs the way it interacts with some evironment. This environment could be a small physics domain, it could be a trading environment, it could be a real world robotics environment or it could be a Aatari environment.The agent says it wants to take actions in this environment and it gets feedback from the environment in the form of observations and it uses these observations to update its policy of behaviour or its model of the world.

How does it work? 

The technology behind DeepMind is complex to say the least but that didn't stop Suleyman from trying to convey some of the fundamental deep learning principles that underpin it. The audience - a mixture of software engineers, AI specialists, startups, investors and media - seemed to follow. 
 
Suleyman explains 
You've probably heard quite a bit about deep learning. I'm going to give you a very quick high-level overview because this is really important to get intuition for how these systems work and what they basically do. 
 
These are hierarchical based networks initially conceived back in the 80s but recently resuscitated by a bunch of really smart guys from Toronto and New York.
The basic intuition is that at one end we take the raw pixel data or the raw sensory stream data of things we would like to classify or recognise. 
 
This seems to be a very effective way of learning to find structure in very large data sets. Right at the very output we're able to impose on the network some requirement to produce some set of labels or classifications that we recognise and find useful as humans. 
 
How is DeepMind being tested? 
DeepMind found a suitably quirky way to test what its team of roughly 140 people have been busy building. 
 
The intelligence of the DeepMind's systems was put through its paces by an arcade gaming platform that dates back to the 1970s. 
 
Suleyman demoed DeepMind playing one of them during his talk - Space Invaders. In his demo he illustrated how a DeepMind agent learns how to play the game with each go it takes.  
 
Suleyman explains 
We use the Atari test bed to develop and test and train all of our systems…or at least we have done so far. 
 
There is somewhere on the magnitude of 100 different Atari games from the 70s and 80s. 
The agents only get the raw pixel inputs and the score so this is something like 30,000 inputs per frame. They're wired up to the action buttons but they're not really told what the action buttons do so the agent has to discover what these new tools of the real world actually mean and how they can utilise value for the agent. 
 
The goal that we give them is very simply to maximise score; it gets a 1 or a 0 when the score comes in, just as a human would. 
 
Everything is learned completely from scratch - there's absolutely zero pre-programmed knowledge so we don't tell the agent these are Space Invaders or this is how you shoot. It's really learnt from the raw pixel inputs. 
 
For every set of inputs the agent is trying to assess which action is optimal given that set of inputs and it's doing that repeatedly over time in order to optimise some longer term goal, which in Atari's sense, is to optimise score. This is one agent with one set of parameters that plays all of the different games.
 
Live space invaders demo
An agent playing space invaders before training struggles to hide behind the orange obstacles, it's firing fairly randomly. It seems to get killed all of the time and it doesn't really know what to do in the environment. 
 
After training, the agent learns to control the robot and barely loses any bullets. It aims for the space invaders that are right at the top because it finds those the most rewarding. It barely gets hit; it hides behind the obstacles; it can make really good predictive shots like the one on the mothership that came in at the top there. 
 
As those of you know who have played this game, it sort of speeds up towards the end and so the agent has to do a little bit more planning and predicting than it had done previously so as you can see there's a really good predictive shot right at the end there. 
 
100 games vs 500 games
The agent doesn't really know what the paddle does after 100 games, it sort of randomly moves it from one side to the other. Occasionally it accidentally hits the ball back and finds that to be a rewarding action. It learns that it should repeat that action in order to get reward. 
 
After about 300 games it's pretty good and it basically doesn't really miss. 
 
But then after about 500 games, really quite unexpectedly to our coders, the agent learns that the optimal strategy is to tunnel up the sides and then send them all around the back to get maximum score with minimum effort - this was obviously very impressive to us. 
We've now achieved human performance in 49/57 games that we've tested on and this work was recently rewarded with a front cover of Nature for our paper that we submitted so we were very proud of that.  
 

How is it being used across Google? 

Google didn't buy DeepMind for nothing. Indeed, it's using certain DeepMind algorithms to make many of its best-known products and services smarter than they were previously. 
 
Suleyman explains
Our deep learning tool has now been deployed in many environments, particularly across Google in many of our production systems.
 
In image recognition, it was famously used in 2012 to achieve very accurate recognition on around a million images with about 16 percent error rate. Very shortly after that it was reduced dramatically to about 6 percent and today we're at about 5.5 percent. This is very much parable with the human level of ability and it's now deployed in Google+ Image Search and elsewhere in Image Search across the company.
 
As you can see on Google Image Search on G+, you're now able to type a word into the search box and it will recall images from your photographs that you've never actually hand labelled yourself. 
 
We've also used it for text and scription. We use it to identify text on shopfronts and maybe alert people to a discount that's available in a particular shop or what the menu says in a given restaurant. We do that with an extremely high level of accuracy today. It's being used in Local Search and elsewhere across the company.  
 
We also use the same core system across Google for speech recognition. It trains roughly in less than 5 days. In 2012 it delivered a 30 percent reduction in error rate against the existing old school system. This was the biggest single improvement in speech recognition in 20 years, again using the same very general deep learning system across all of these. 
 
Across Google we use what we call Tool AI or Deep Learning Networks for fraud detection, spam detection, hand writing recognition, image search, speech recognition, Street View detection, translation. 
 
Sixty handcrafted rule-based systems have now been replaced with deep learning based networks. This gives you a sense of the kind of generality, flexibility and adaptiveness of the kind of advances that have been made across the field and why Google was interested in DeepMind. 

Should we be scared?

The number of scientists and world-famous entrepreneurs speaking out on the potential dangers of AI is increasing week-by-week, with renowned physicist Stephen Hawking and PayPal billionaire Elon Musk being two of the most outspoken anti-AI advocates. 
The pair, along with several others including Bill Gates and Sky cofounder Jaan Tallinn, believe that machines will soon become more intelligent than humans, just as they do in recent Hollywood blockbuster Ex Machina. 
 
Despite this, Google is keen to develop its AI algorithms as much as possible in order to improve its offerings and boost its profits. 
 
Suleyman tried to put people's minds at ease and explain the logic behind all the hype. 
 
Suleyman explains
Over the last 18 months or so, AI breakthroughs have, I think, created a sense of anxiety or in some cases hype around the potential long term direction of the field. 
 
This of course is not least induced by Elon [Musk] who recently Tweeted that we need to be super careful with AI because it's "potentially more dangerous than nukes" and that's obviously backed up by various publications including Nick Bostrom's - all culminating in this kind of sense that AI has the potential to end all human kind. 
 
If you didn't really pay attention to the field and all you did was read, as I think the vast majority of people do, descriptions of the kind of work that we do on the web then you could be forgiven for believing that AI is actually about this. Whether it's Terminator coming to blow us up or societies of AIs or mad scientists looking to create quite perverted women robots.
This narrative has somehow managed to dominate the entire landscape, which I think we find really quite remarkable. 
 
It's true that AI has in some sense really arrived. This isn't just a summer. These are very concrete production breakthroughs that really do make a big different but it's also sad how quickly we adapt to this new reality. We rarely take time to acknowledge the magic and the potential of these advances and the kind of good that they can bring. In some sense, the narrative has shifted from isn't it terrible that AI has been such a failure to isn't it terrible that AI has been such a success. 
 
Just to address directly this question of existential risk. Our perspective on this is that it's become a real distraction from the core ethics and safety issues and that it's completely overshadowed the debate. 
 
The way we think about AI is that it'll be a hugely powerful tool that we control and direct whose capabilities we limit, just as we do with any other tool that we have in the world around us, whether they're washing machines or tractors. 
 
.techworld.com/cmsdata/features/3615354/Ex_Machina_Ava_on_table.png


These are tools that we designed that we can control. We should explicitly be designing these systems such that we are able to control them and where we fear there's a risk that we're not able to control them, then that's I think when we should be slowing down, just as we have in many other sectors, from nuclear development to chemical weapons or the like. 
 
We're building them to empower humanity, absolutely not to destroy us.I think our technology has the potential to really positively transform the world if we can steward it in the right direction and imagine new mechanisms of governance and accountability and transparency that involve a broader group in the process of directing the application of our technology. 
 
There are many, many much more urgent concerns we need to direct our attention to. This conversation around whether we'll have human-like intelligences wondering around absorbing all the information that's ever been created and giving them rights and being conscious - these are just so…there are a few engineers in the room who will know how difficult it is to get these things to do anything.The idea that we should be spending these moments now talking about consciousness and robot right is really quite preposterous.
  
I don't mean to be dismissive, these are serious concerns and we put a great deal of effort and a great deal of our negotiating capital into establishing what we think is a reasonably effective process. We're introducing additional oversight and accountability into the way that we steward our technology with the establishment of our ethics and safety board. 
 
These are important issues, we do need to discuss them but we also need to focus on what else is at stake in the world today. How can these tools be useful elsewhere? 800 million people don't have access to clean water, rising to 1.8 billion in the next decade alone. One of the most fundamental rights beyond so many people on our planet. 800 million people are malnourished but a third of the food we produce is wasted every year. 

Looking ahead

Google has pledged to set up an ethics board to monitor its internal AI developments. Interestingly, this was one of DeepMind's prerequisites to signing the acquisition papers, suggesting that Suleyman knows AI has potential to do harm. 
 
A number of people have already been appointed to the board but Google has refused to reveal who they are. Suleyman said he wants the names to be revealed. 
 
"We will [publicise the names], but that isn't the be-all and end-all. It's one component of the whole apparatus," he said, adding that he was impressed a 100-strong company like DeepMind was able to convince Google to set up the board in the first place. 
 
Some believe that the board should be appointed with the help of other organisations and public oversight but Google has so far decided to act independently.

Small Corruption Large Corruption?



By Junid Tahir

Brother Bilal is a scientist and works for a prestigious organization. While driving, we were doing general chit-chat when he mentioned that his office provides him adequate amount of stationary for work however he has bought a separate pen and writing pad for his personal usage as he believes that using office stationary for his personal work is a kind of corruption. I heard his statement but didn't give much attention.

After some time we stopped at a Petrol pump asking the fuel guy to fill the petrol. The bill was 37 AED. Bilal handed over 40 AED to the fuel boy and expected 3 AED in return, whereas the service boy returned 2 AED and moved on to the next car as if he didn't do anything wrong.

Bilal said, "Junaid, did you notice that he did corruption of 1 AED?. I heard it but didn't give much attention. Then Bilal said, can you imagine if each service boy in the city does this level of corruption, how much corruption are we talking about?"

Now, this time Bilal triggered the "analysis button" of my brain. I transformed both situations (stationary & petrol) to the city level. What I already knew that People like Bilal are few in millions and people like Service Boy (including businessmen, doctors, engineers, officers) are in millions. I imagined 5 million people living in a city and each person performing 1 AED corruption on average on daily basis then the amount of city-level corruption would be 5 million AED on DAILY basis !!!
 
FLASH:
Everyone wishes to improve the system but nobody really strives to start from oneself. Everyone makes huge speeches against corruption but does not really perform a self-audit on how much honest he/she is !!!  While Government's job is to ensure that right systems and polices are set in place and all wrong doers are to be brought into the court of justice; our Lord has provided us with a "built-in court" for self-audit. This court is called "Conscience".  Our conscience is a great tool as it generates positive and negative signals for the actions we perform. And if our conscience is not giving alarms for our bad deeds then something is seriously wrong in the roots of our faith so we must return back to Lord's teaching to restore our faith level. Considering the fact that a clean and active conscience is the best pillow we may have; we must empower our conscience by more positive acts.








 

12 Tips & Tricks to Help You Make the Most Out of Whatsapp

There is no doubt that WhatsApp Messenger is one of the most popular application across all mobile platforms. The messenger has over one billion active users.

With the new updates rolling in, it is tough to keep track of all the updates. ProPakistani has created a guide of all the old and new tips and tricks which can prove useful for you. Have a look!

Formatting The Messages

WhatsApp allows you to format your messages and then send them. This feature has been around for a while but many people still don’t know how to properly use them.

The three formatting techniques which WhatsApp offers are italic, bold and strike through. To use them, encapsulate the text as below:
  1. _Italic_
  2. *Bold*
  3. ~Strike through~

Use WhatsApp in a Web Browser


For people who prefer typing on the keyboards, they can use their WhatsApp in a web browser.
All you need to do is open the WhatsApp web version and scan the bar code which appears on the website from your smartphone.
After that, all your chats will be displayed in the browser.
You can send messages, images and videos from the WhatsApp web version.

Transfer Files To PC via WhatsApp

Often times, it is a hurdle to find the data cable and attach it to the PC to transfer files.
As a substitute, you can save your own number in your phone and send the files to your own WhatsApp chat.
With the WhatsApp web already logged in, you can receive the files on your PC and download them there.

Backup & Restore WhatsApp Conversations

Often times people end up deleting their data or losing their smartphones. If such a situation occurs, you can still retrieve your WhatsApp chats and media through this method.
WhatsApp lets you backup all of your chats including media to Google Drive. To do this you have to tap Menu button and then Settings > Chats > Chat backup. Then tap on Back up to Google Drive. You will be prompted to select the Google Account you want to choose to backup your data.

You can also set backup frequency (daily, weekly, monthly), backup over WiFi only or manually backup by pressing “Backup Now” button.
To restore, install WhatsApp on your new phone, sign up and go to the same settings menu, link your account and click Restore.
You can copy or backup conversations to your email as well. In order to do that, open the chat you want to save. Then click Options > More > Email chat. After that, follow the on-screen instructions.

Know When Someone Read Your Message


Majority of the people already know that one grey tick means that the message has been sent, two grey ticks imply that message has been delivered and blue ticks indicate that the message has been read by the recipient.
However, there is another option to check all of the above things. Not only that, it also shows the exact time stamp.
To see the message information or  the sent message details, open a chat, tap and hold any sent message, then tap the info (or i) button from the action bar (top).

Star Important Messages


It is always difficult to scroll hundreds and thousands of messages to find something you were looking for.
Suppose a friend suggests a good song or give you his address, instead of scrolling and finding it later on, you can star the messages.
To mark a message as favorite, you just need to long press on any individual message, then tap on the star icon in the action bar at the top of the application’s screen.
To revisit the messages, click on Options in the conversation list screen and choose Starred Messages.

Hide Chats From The WhatsApp List

Do you have nosy family members or friends who like to keep tabs on you?
It is always a problem if that is the case. Previously, WhatsApp offered no support for hiding conversations. The only solution was to delete the conversations.

However, now, you can hide them. Here’s how:
Tap and hold a particular chat and click the archive button in the action bar to archive that conversation.
To view all archived chats by scrolling to the bottom in the conversation list screen then click Archived chats.

Hide WhatsApp Media From Your Gallery

If you like to keep things organized in your gallery and don’t want the incoming WhatsApp media to show up in your gallery then this trick is for you.

All you need to do is open File Manager and browse to Internal storage WhatsApp > Media and Rename two folders.
  • To rename: WhatsApp Images and WhatsApp Videos.
  • Rename to: (dot)WhatsApp Images and (dot)WhatsApp Video.
Note:  (dot) represents the punctuation dot.
Through this trick, you can hide images and videos in your gallery but you can view them in your WhatsApp and your File Manager as well. Another key thing to mention here is that this trick only works on Android phones.

Use Multiple WhatsApp Accounts

People who own a dual-SIM smartphone are often faced with the dilemma of using only one WhatsApp account.
There are third-party applications through which you can achieve the goal but those means aren’t always the most effective.
For this trick to work, it is necessary for you to own a smartphone which is upgraded to Lollipop OS.

Go to Android’s Settings > Users > Add user. After you have created a new user, log in using the new account, install WhatsApp on the newly created account and use it for your second number.

Use Different Skin Tone Emojis

Some WhatsApp emojis such as hand and face gestures (not the smileys) can also be sent in different skin tones. The skin tones vary from light to dark, which gives you a personal feel to it.

To change the skin tone of the emojis, click on emojis, long tap on the emoji you want to send and you will see a list of the same emoji with different skin tones to choose from.

Send Messages To Multiple Contacts

WhatsApp brought the Broadcasting of the messages to the table. Through this, users can draft one message and forward it to multiple contacts without having to copy paste in individual chats.
For this, you need to tap Option, select New Broadcast, tap on the Plus Sign (+) to add contacts, tap Done and then tap on Create.
There is no limit on the contact list, so feel free to select as many as you like.

Edit Images Before Sending


One of the latest updates brought a Snapchat-like feature to WhatsApp.
This feature had been missing and has now made WhatsApp a more complete messenger applications.
Normally when you take photos, you almost always want to edit them before sending. You can now do that with WhatsApp.
After taking a picture through in-app camera, you can now add emojis, crop the the image taken or write anything on the picture using the pen option.
The usability of the feature is extremely straightforward.

Story: Clean Elephant and Dirty Pig

An elephant took a bath in a river and was walking on the road.
When it neared a bridge, it saw a pig fully soaked in mud coming from the opposite direction.

The elephant quietly moved to one side, allowed the dirty pig to pass and then continued its onward journey.

The unclean pig later spoke to its friends in arrogance, “See how big I am; even the elephant was afraid of me and moved to one side to let me pass”.

On hearing this, some elephants questioned their friend, the reason for its action. Was it out of fear?

The elephant smiled and replied, “I could have easily crushed the pig under my leg, but I was clean and the pig was very unclean. By crushing it, my leg would have become dirty and I wanted to avoid it. Hence, I moved aside.”

Flash: Realized souls will avoid contact with negativity not out of fear, but out of desire to keep away from impurity though they are strong enough to destroy the impurity.You need not react to every opinion, every comment, or every situation.

Kick the drama and keep going ahead

Surprise People and God will Surprise You !!!


My friend is living a very peaceful and happy life. He shares small incidents from his routine life asking me to publish on my blog dailytenminutes.com to create ripples of happiness in society. Here are some of the small incidents he shared:    
  1. I was praying and next to me was a poor man, praying too. (I judged his finances due to his clothes' condition). ​After he finished his prayer, I handover over 100AED ($30) note to him humbly. Wow !!! I felt an immediate spark in his eyes though this is what he was asking God for, a while ago. Experiencing that moment was a fantastic feelings I had had.
  2. The petrol bill was 90AED so I handed over 100AED to the service boy and humbly told him to keep 10AED change. Next to that boy I noticed another gentleman selling mobile pre-paid cards so I handover another 10AED. He wasn't expecting this tip as he didn't serve me so his eyes were blushed with this unexpected money. It was another priceless moment for me.
  3. "That will be 15AED, Sir", the barber said. I handed over 30 AED (double the amount of his expectation). He gave me a gratuitous smile and prayed for my blessed life.
  4. Every 2-3 weeks I purchase pre-paid mobile calling cards and give to the watchman of my building. This helps him calling his family back in his home country enabling ​him getting connected to his loved ones more frequently as international calls are usually heavier on their pockets.

My friend tells me that he always try to find ​small and easy ​ways to surprise someone (his car cleaner, a stranger on the road, barber, the peon, the washroom cleaner at office, the tea boy, his relatives, spouse and so on...).
He mentions that such small acts of kindness do not cause any major burden on his pocket however​ cause major positive impact in his life. God keeps him away from unexpected challenges such as serious health issues, traffic accidents, bad relationship with spouse, political office circumstances, sudden loss of money and mental stress.
 
​He feels that his problems are getting sorted out automatically.​ He tells that the more he helps others, the more help and blessings he gets from God.
As per him, he has attained unmatched peace of mind and relaxed life index since he started surprising people.


He recommend me to start the day with the intention that I will make someone happy today, I will resolve someone's problem today, I will put a smile on someone's face and so on.... and all your actions will be paid back to you by God in another way. He insists,

When we start serving humanity, God starts serving us --- in many ways!

Desperate Man Without Address Draws Map On Envelope Instead, And It Gets Delivered




Desperate Man Without Address Draws Map On Envelope Instead, And It Gets Delivered
An Iceland tourist didn’t have the address of the person he was sending a letter to, but luckily, he had a good memory.

So, instead of  putting an address on the envelope, he drew a map which leads to a farm in Hvammsveit, West Iceland, with a red dot marked on the destination. The envelope reads: ‘Country: Iceland. City: Búðardalur. Name: A horse farm with an Icelandic/Danish couple and three kids and a lot of sheep!’. It also has a little clue in the corner saying that ‘the Danish woman works in a supermarket in Búðardalur.’ How cute!

This Icelandic tourist didn’t know the address but had a good memory.

 

And, according to a local newspaper, Skessuhornið, it still reached the intended destination!

Choosing your Thoughts

Through choosing your thoughts and then locking it, you have chosen your action. So the question is which thoughts were you choosing?

You exist simultaneously in many different forms and dimensions and possess many personalities. You choose which reality you want to live in based on your intentions and past experiences.

You are the observer and the participant. And you choose which behavior and actions you're going to participate in. The things you observe in your outer world are nothing more than a projection from your inner world.

Imagine you have thought for the future that you want to create $100,000 in the next year. If you are focusing on that, feeling it, acting on it and then reinforcing it with your actions, the money starts to take physical form and start coming to you. Same way if you're putting out an intention of $100,000 and you stress how it will comes in and you keep telling yourself how you need and how bad you economy is, then this cancels your universe actions and it does not come.

Anytime you think, feel and act, broke or worry about the problem, you are sending out a vibration that is bound to cancel your intention. This is why so many people struggle with manifesting the things they desire in their lives. In other words, only vibrations that are in resonance with each other can harmonize. This is the scientific principle behind the Law of Attraction.

 It is critical that the BIG THREE - thoughts, feelings and emotions – should be in harmony along with your actions. If they are not in sync, They will INTERCEPT, and they will cancel each other out.

This is why making a decision based on where you are going, not where you are, is so critical. The key is to accept where you are without resistance. You accept "what is" without fighting it, and you keep your intention on your desire. This is the secret to manifestation.

I suggest you reread this paragraph again.

You just have to align with level of vibration. What you desire is possibilities. So get in harmony with it, start taking action based upon it and that is sure to come to you.

great care in his appearance, is moving into an old people's home today.
After waiting several hours in the retirement home lobby, 
he gently smiles as he is told that his room is ready.
His wife of 80 has recently died, and he is obliged to leave his home.
As he slowly walks to the elevator, using his cane, 
I describe his small room to him, including the sheet hung at 
the window which serves as a curtain.
"I like it very much", he says, with the enthusiasm of an
8 year old boy who has just been given a new puppy.
"You haven't even seen the room yet, hang on a moment, we are almost there"
" That has nothing to do with it ", he replies.
"It is already decided in my mind that I like my room.  It is a decision I take every morning when I wake up"
 
HAPPINESS IS A STATE OF MIND. If you want to be happy, no one should stop you. No one and nothing is in charge of YOUR HAPPINESS. Happiness is something You choose in advance. 
You withdraw in later life what you have deposited along the way. "
So, my advice to you is to deposit all the happiness 
you can in your bank account of memories.
