Happiness Lists

Since the word of the year is happiness this year, I decided that I should figure a way to remind myself, since I need reminders, to do more things more often that bring me/us happiness. So I decided to start making up happiness lists for me, The Littles, and the Teens so that I have a written reminder. I started writing up lists a few weeks ago. They are not by any means finished, but I am satisfied that I am starting to make up lists and I know that lists help me and are good reminders to get things done and to do things. I am thinking that I might actually do more happiness lists, for specific inners to be allowed to express themselves, as this process goes on.

I’ll be posting the lists here as they get further along and post about how this process is going. One thing that I have been doing is keeping up my artificial Christmas tree and lighting it every day. I did that last year and it brings us a lot of happiness. I really want to encourage everyone else to do things that they enjoy and bring them happiness, especially the small things so that there is happiness in every day. Yesterday was Popcorn Day and I made popcorn and enjoyed it a lot. That’s another thing that I am working on a list for, celebrate more holidays. I’ll write about that process soon.

I am also very happy that I started to do a life hack list, that are reminders to do certain things when I start having any health issue, things that I unfortunately can’t seem to remember once I start getting sick, but need to do to help myself get better. It is still in the works, mostly because I am still sick and can’t recall them right now. I don’t know why I forget the most obvious solutions and healing suggestions, just that I know that my brain is not firing on all cylinders even when I am just starting to get sick in some way.  Poor brain. Poor me. Lol. Still I’m doing much better and so happy about that.  🙂

Healing Quotes Teens 242

“Give yourself up to this moment. Dare to see it. Now look down at your feet; slip out of those invisible tethers. Then ask: Where would you take yourself right this moment if you walked toward your most heartfelt dream? What would your life look like? What would your body look and feel like? What level of energy would you have? What might be your favorite activity? What would your daily life include? Imagine happiness — the sweet glow of inner contentment, the way it tastes and smells and feels”
