200 Reasons For Happiness

shutterstock_48956095WOW aka walking on water…or Miraculous! How about Walking on Wellness or Working on Wellness: takes a miracle?

Takes hard work? Sometimes both!;)

As Partners in Wellness, Friends in Wellness, Caregivers in Wellness and BreathingFragileLife in Wellness…we are always working on wellness.


One tool that helps me with my wellness (or coping successfully with challenges) is positively reflecting and mediating on my Reasons for Happiness. All of us have some challenge or trial: intense or otherwise we are experiencing. If we are not careful, we can be consumed by the (seemingly) negative and have our healthy thinking thrown off balance.

THANKS MUCH for reading/following this coping tool: this cumulative list of 8 things rotates every 8 days. 1 week of time living/learning = 7 days + 1 day/next day #8…buying out time for stopping/reflecting/meditating/recording/listing/appreciating: HAPPINESS Factors (Contributors) multiply continually…no matter what the unexpected weekly circumstance(s) or emotional climate.


Happy Sunday, February 16th, 2014…WOW!!

We have 200 Reasons for Happiness…please, I need your help to count:

200. The book of Proverbs aka ancient wise words that help/guide modern living successfully:

“Precious treasure and oil are found in the house of the wise. But the stupid man will squander what he has.” (Proverbs 21:20)

“A wise man can scale (or prevail over) the city of the mighty and undermine the strength in which they trust.” (Proverbs 21:22)

199. A self-sacrificing spirit (or willingness) to sacrifice as an expression of genuine love, respect, trust and faith.

198. Funerals/Memorial Services…because they bring people together (usually on the basis of love for a mutual friend, relative, etc.) who would usually not be together or see one another regularly (or giving you an opportunity to meet friends of friends).

197. Times of opening and times of closing (closure) aka times of reflection, meditation and times of personal inner growth manifestation(s) and organization(s).

196. Beginnings and endings…finished chapters of life and books, etc…passages of time and space…completions completely complete.

195. Curry and Cayenne Pepper…spices…of life.

194. Olives and pickles

193. Jumping ropes and through hoops: good exercise for body/mind/heart.
