I want to get down to the basics. Simplify. And what do I want? More joy. More happiness. Who doesn’t, right?
So I’ve been reading some easy ways to bring happiness to the forefront of my brain and I want to share it here with you. This is a simple doable task with a major payoff at the end of the year. And from what I’ve been reading, it’s going to start way sooner than December 31, 2016. Making the conscious choice to focus on the good things happening each day, has a giant impact on our overall outlook.
It’s like the Buddhist saying,
Turn Your Face Toward the Light
So here’s the deal with this new habit I’m starting.
Want to join me?
Every day, write down the happiest moment of your day and put it in the jar. These small activities are going to shift our focus and impact our lives. Even on bad days, look for something good to add to your jar. It’s going to seem insignificant – until they start adding up. Then on New Year’s Eve, pull them out and read them. Remind yourself of the good things that happened throughout the year. Easy. Handy.
This jar, because you can see through it, will be evidence that good things are crossing your path. And you’re strengthening that muscle that helps you see them. Think of them as little gifts in your life. Grace, maybe? They’re there, we just have to notice them.
