I started this Happiness List as a coping tool in the aftermath of a not-so-happy (August) 7th day.
Thankfully, off the top of my head, I can’t recall “any” specifics which had me sooo upset and why I was shedding sooo many tears that distant day. It is a “forgotten” mystery now…aka the precursor to:
8 Reasons For Happiness published on August 8, 2013.
1 week of time living/learning = 7 days + 1 day/next day number 8…buying out time for stopping, reflecting, meditating, recording, listing, ruminating, appreciating, expressing, rejoicing: another 8…
HAPPINESS FACTORS/CONTRIBUTORS multiply and no matter what the matter??! whatever the unexpected/emergency and/or Special weekly circumstance(s) or weather (fleeting/changing emotional climate or otherwise) that may arise in our lives.
Obviously, this coping tool helped! It has shifted my dwelling on whatever negative(s) of that past, tough day and now, here we are: fast forward to December 22, 2013 and my emotions are tenderized by focusing on the positives in life experienced since: August 7th.
I know You have positives happening in Your life as You read this. I encourage YOU to focus Your thoughts on these. I also know, You are experiencing something not-so-happy in Your life as You read this. Tough challenges we experience, as fragile life, can serve as a disciplining and refining tool for polishing us into positive change(s).
Periods of growth and change can be painful and pleasurable, annoying and enlightening; adjustments of the necessary in order to continue living.
EnJOY the ride…while You can ride.
