Happy List-Start Off the New Year with a Bang
I wanted to start noticing more all the small and big things that make us happy, so let’s create A Happy List together, which allows you to note one thing every day that you are grateful for. You will really enjoy noticing the small and big things, and having a record to look back on. You can get your 2016 Happy List information here:
Easy to Do
The happy list is not difficult.
You just begin numbering and listing…big profound things like God and my faith, my family, love, life and small things like bubble baths, yoga, breathing, hugs, flowers, green juice, funny movies…etc.
It doesn’t matter.
With each entry, your heart opens more and more comes
But trust me when I tell you that when your heart is opened, it keeps expanding. Opening further.
More happiness ensues.
You find that what you see are the good things, the things that make you happy…such as yoga, friends, good food, bubble baths, wine, whipped cream, early morning, first cup of coffee, your breath.
See what I mean?
Even the “Bad” things have Gifts
There is nothing like the perspective that time can bring. So bad things happen.
Many more good things happen. It’s true. It is what you are noticing. The happy list provides the tool to move through the difficulty of life.
Blessings abound…yes even in what seems like the worst of times.
Give it 30 Days
They (who are they, anyway?) say it takes 21 days to form a new habit. Try this for 30 days. Write in it once a day.
Find at least one thing that makes you happy. I think you will find that once you start, it is difficult to stop.
It really is that easy.
Gotta go grab my notebook. See…I’m happy!
