Happiness, Day 4

Day 4

Things that went well:

  • keeping my boys on schedule , on an “off” day
  • not arguing with MoonDog about petty things at all today
  • getting home-again!-early enough to tuck in the kiddos and loved them up with lots of hugs and kisses
  • Thing to stop doing:

  • staying up too late- I have to get up uber early tomorrow for a conference that I am helping with- good luck me!
  • Done, and sleepy time.

    Happiness, Day 3

    I am on day three of this happiness experiment from Sar Gottfried, that claims if I state three things that went well today, and also one thing, to stop, I will gain 6 extra months of happiness on the back end. So here goes:

  • Today my job offered to give me full time hours instead do part time for the temporary break of my job share ( yes, this is a good thing, because MoonDog has been asking if full time work might for me suit our family needs better now that the twins are a bit older
  • I traveled safely to work, to a wake 60 miles away, and back home again.
  • I got to kiss my kids goodnight and talk about their days because I got home before they fell asleep
  • The one thing I will stop doing: folding laundry, when it can wait.

    Sanity is precious people. I choose happiness. I will it. Misery and negativity feed on themselves, so the more unhappiness you have around you, you need to build up you immunity to it, or your defense system against it overtaking your own feelings. By increasing your own happiness, I think it is a strategy that just like taking a multi-vitamin works to give you a baseline to work from. Hmmm. Let’s end the night on this. Thank you, Day 3.

    Happiness Investment, Day 2

    So my last post described this one week trial for me in investing one minute everynight, to reap the benefits of 6 months added happiness to my life. Why not do it?! Well if you are sick, tired, sick and tired, then you may not care for this. But it really only takes one single minute. Not too shabby of an investment if you ask me.
    Here’s my list of three things that went well day 2:

  • I made dinner in time for everyone to eat before softball.
  • I transplanted two perennials before 9 am.
  • I folded two loads of laundry (other three had to wait. Actually, I combined two loads into one basket, so does that now count as 1?
  • What I will stop doing: staying angry. Why someone else has the power to ruin my day, is the worst thing. I will try to squelch my stubborn streak. Try-ing!
