This has been an incredible week, so far. How so? Stopping each day to list three things that have made me happy that day. It makes you aware.
It can become so easy and commonplace to focus on all the negatives in our lives. Sometimes you may have to look really hard to find the happy, but I bet there is something there, somewhere!
That is my Simple Pleasure for this week. Taking that time to focus on and list my three happy things for the day. Yes some days they may seem like pretty simple little things, but they are ” my” things or “your” things. There is no right or wrong.
How are you doing with listing your happy things? You may think “oh no one cares, no one is watching”. But guess what? They are. How do I know? I have been posting my three things every day on my personal Facebook page. Several of the #saturday7amsocialclub members who were not at the meeting last week (so they weren’t there to know about the challenge) have taken to posting their happy things too; because I posted mine and issued the challenge. One of my childhood friends has just issued a challenge to her friends on Facebook to do the same thing for the next 30 days, because of my challenge. That’s also a Simple Pleasure; knowing that one, seemingly small thing can inspire others. That was my hope/goal when I started this blog: to inspire others in some facet of their journey. I hope I do that on occasion. Sometimes I wonder, but….Maybe I have.
Yes, people do watch. But. What do they see? Do they see happy or do they see you have the “mulligrubs” all the time? I know not everyday is rainbows and unicorns, but I hope you have been able to find those happy moments.
My three happy things for Wednesday were
1. It was a beautiful day
2. I had a phenomenal workout
3. The grand littles are either in bed or home
