PasadenaSue This is the year I face my fears and love myself!
The email had a short little happiness quiz. I took it and watched the video that talked about where we look for happiness. Internally? Externally? From someone else? As I was riding my scooter to lunch I thought why not make today an incredible day? Why not look for the best in everything that happens? The rain that was predicted was going to clear up the air, clean the streets, nourish the plants. The clouds looked pretty – white and fluffy. This could be a great day.
If I just focused on the positive things today wouldn’t I be happy? It was worth a try. After all we select out certain things every day. We select criticism over compliments. We select failure over success. If someone told me that I looked tired, and someone else told me I looked good, which remark would I keep in my head? Probably the negative one. Why not throw it out and keep the positive one? It’s my choice which to keep.
I am pleased to say that it worked for me. I did a lot of things that I wouldn’t have necessarily done if it hadn’t rained. I talked to a lot of people and everyone was nice. I thought pleasant thoughts for the most part and when I caught myself being negative I stopped talking about that topic.
I had FUN today. I consider that a successful day.
