Sunday Journal: Chit-Chat … 52 List for Happiness [#18]
Hello + my lovely friends. I’m feeling good this Sunday + and I’m just thankful for another week + and I’m uplifted by a beautiful post from Beutiflee. Thanks for the constant inspiration.
My daughter told me [the other day] that she liked my previous Sunday post about doing something that brings you joy before you do something that’s daunting or a chore. This helps you power through it. Like fuel … your feeding your happiness tank to move you through your tasks + and that feeds my soul + and keeps me posting on this blog. Every time someone receives encouragement from my Sunday post … even if it’s only reaching someone I know is what I need. It’s my push to keep going.
This weeks question or task [depending on how you look at it] in the journal says … “List the things about yourself that you don’t need to change.”
- My determination
- The way I communicate
- Diffusing situations
- Compassion for others
- The kid inside
- My focus
- Making things pretty
- Being classic
- Talking too much
TAKE ACTION: Set a reminder on your phone or calendar to reread this list on this day one year from now to remember all of the ways that you do love yourself and are proud of who you are!
We all need positive affirmation + and as I mentioned above … it’s fuel. I need to feed my soul or top off my happiness tank. I love the “Take Action” exercise + and I’m setting my reminder today. There are some things on this list that I used to be ashamed of + and there are things that others have cautioned me about. I learned a long time ago that I’m not going to let anyone else put out my fire [so to speak]. Don’t let anyone eclipse your sun.
Being able to talk to people from all different walks of life is a gift + and I refuse to be ashamed of it. There are times when the kid inside me shines through and it’s what I need + in that particular situation. The biggest thing for me on this list [which may surprise you] is daydreaming. I will never ever stop daydreaming + because maybe … just maybe … I can parlay my daydreams into reality.
With that + I’ll close my post today. Thanks so much for visiting my blog + and with each post for this list + I hope that I can bring some of my happiness + and or wisdom to someone in need + because if you have happiness + and joy in your heart + you spread that happiness + and joy to others. – [Know Thyself] Wye
