I recently had a conversation with a friend that quickly went from lighthearted to pretty deep.
She asked me, “Lisa, what makes you truly happy”?
My first thoughts were of course my husband, my dog, my amazing group of friends and family. But what about those little everyday things that just bring a smile to your face? We all too often thing of the things that we don’t care for, such as falling out of our favorite yoga pose, misplacing your favorite lip balm, or baking what could be the most spectacular dessert, only to see that it’s a complete flop once taking it out of the oven.
I decided to put myself on a mission to spend a month creating a list of 36 items that bring me joy and make me happy. Why 36? Well, I had just celebrated my 36th birthday and thought it was a good place to start.
We all too often take these small things for granted that can really put a smile on our face or lighten your mood. This process not only involved some deep thinking, but was also pretty fun!
Now it’s time for you to create your list! It may be a challenge at first but take a deep breath and think throughout the day what makes you happy. It can be anything from a silly saying from your kids to a most beautiful piece of artwork. Just simply list anything that gives you that light, fluffy, happy feeling.
