That means cooking delicious apple pies (for yourself and the others), taking care of your cat (if you have one), always smiling when someone visits you, being nice to children (whether they are your grandchildren or not), understanding all kinds of people because you have the experience and the patience for that. Also, look back with serenity, not anger, accept when someone wants to help you and quit being hysterical!

Here's a part of the list Coelho made about absurd things that society thinks are "normal"... Do you agree?
1] Anything that makes us forget our true identity and our dreams and makes us only work to produce and reproduce.
2] Working from nine in the morning to five in the afternoon at something that does not give us the least pleasure, so that we can retire after 30 years.
3] Trying to be financially successful instead of seeking happiness.
4] Comparing objects like cars, houses and clothes, and defining life according to these comparisons instead of really trying to find out the true reason for being alive.
5] Thinking that parents are always right.
6] Criticizing everybody who tries to be different.
7] Believing absolutely everything that is printed.
8] Following fashion, even though it all looks ridiculous and uncomfortable.
9] Never laughing out loud in a restaurant, no matter how funny the story is.
10] Eating three times a day, even if you’re not hungry.
11] Always saying “I tried”, even though you haven’t tried at all.
12] Putting off doing the most interesting things in life until you no longer have the strength to do them.
13] Avoiding depression with massive daily doses of television programs.
