What makes you happy? Add a little happiness to your day. FREE downloadable!

what makes you happyWhat makes you happy?  Have you ever really thought about it?  Could you sit down and list out twenty things that make you happy, right now?  What about ten?  Five? One Hundred?

I’ve been pondering the subject lately.  Ironically, it seems like I can list a LOT of things that make me happy  when I am actually happy.  But my list is really short when I’m not happy.  I’ve also figured out that some of the things I lean on when I’m unhappy (chocolate) don’t really make me happy.

OK, maybe chocolate is a bad example.  It probably does make me happier.  There’s research and stuff that says chocolate is good for me.  In moderation.

For a lot of reasons, I decided that knowing what made me happy was a good way to be happy on purpose (intentional happiness)..

Being intentional about happiness may seem a little silly, but it makes a big difference.  It’s a key idea in Gretchen Rubin’s Book The Happiness Project: Or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun.   You can also pop over to some blogs and read about other people and their happiness lists.  Try this article on keeping a happiness list  or this author’s list of happy acts .  It all starts by asking “what makes you happy?”Creating your personalized happiness list at thishappymom.com

Try it for yourself!  Make a list of things that make you happy and then start adding them to your day.  It will make a difference.  If you need help getting started, you can check my free downloadable E-book listed on the righthand column.  (Or click here: creating your personalized happiness list)

Care to share?  What makes you happy?  I’d love to know your thoughts on my ebook.

I have a passion for encouraging weary worn out mothers to find joy in everyday motherhood and peace in unlikely places. I have two elementary school boys, one nerdy husband, and two cats. I have a strange fascination for bad puns, the color pink, socks, and books. I worry about running out of toilet paper, wine, and chocolate.. I serve an amazing God. I live an ordinary life filled with wonder.
