ABC’s of Happiness

I missed last week due to sick kids (then sick me) but here is where we left off.


These are just little things that make me, or somebody else, happy. I hope by posting them you’ll take a few minutes out of your day to think on those things that make you happy and in doing so, you’ll find you are happier.

D- Dancing. Okay, I don’t know if you would call it dancing… how about moving to music? Not sure if it’s the music or the movement but there is something freeing in dancing even if it’s alone in your room or with a kid or two. Try it. : )




E- Eating. Oddly enough, it took a long time for me to come up with this. I love eating. I know it’s necessary to life but lets face it, here in America we eat for enjoyment as much as nutrition. As I’ve gotten older, and my metabolism has slowed, I take more care with what I eat. I’ve also found portions are the key. The first bite tastes the best anyway. Whether it’s a perfectly glazed chicken breast or a decadent dessert, there is nothing like pampering your taste buds.


F- Friends. This one is courtesy of a friend of mine : ) We can all agree friends are the spice of life. Friends help us find balance, direction, give us a lift when we are down and kick us in the butt when it’s necessary. It’s easy to take friends for granted in our busy lives so at the risk of sounding like a Hallmark card or one of those email forwards, I think that I’ll go and let a few of them know how special they are to me.




Your turn…


What something that made you happy today? or yesterday? or the day before… : )
