There are many small daily things that make me happy.
When Skip brings me coffee while I am still in bed every morning...
Stopping at Starbucks for a non fat latte
Hearing my grandchildren laugh or even seeing them smile
Going to Musicals or Plays
Going to the Movies
Doing ANYTHING Artsy or Creative
and then there are many more deeply rooted areas of my life that make me happy
A Solid Spiritual Foundation * Because without this there is no REAL Happiness
My relationship with my mother
When our entire family is together
My relationship with my husband
Spending time with my children
Having two friends in my life that I know will always be part of my life
Happy is the feeling I get when I am accomplishing what I need to do and staying on target (a project, a book I am writing,organizing, exercising, eating for my health).
I am Happy that I live in a FREE country
For those of you that stare at the blank paper in front of you and can not think of anything at all that makes you happy..I think it is safe to say you are depressed. This is why this exercise is so important. If you honestly can not find a thing that you are happy about please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will refer you to some reading material that might help along with a few other prompts just for you.
Have a HAPPY day!
