Happiness Project – Week III

24 Nov

Two weeks ago I realised that I was unhappy. I started a Happiness Project with a list of activities to introduce into my everyday life in order to bring positivity back into my life.

Thoughts on Week III of the Happiness Project:

1) It makes me happy to help or to bring joy into the lives those around me. A day seems almost unfulfilled if I haven’t made that little effort to do something for the people I love.

2) Helping someone – from the heart – and knowing that my action has made even the smallest difference fills me with positive emotions.

3) We cannot judge other people’s happiness and we cannot let other people by a judge of ours.

It makes me happy to look out of the window and watch the trees sway.

It makes me happy to take walks on dark cold evenings.

It makes me happy to live in a place where I cannot hear cars going past.

It makes me happy to not wear make-up every day.

It makes me happy to sing along to pop music as I work.

This is certainly not everyone’s idea of happiness, but if we listen to everyone’s idea, we can wave our happiness goodbye.

4) Being in contact with those less fortunate than ourselves can transform our outlook on life. It makes us realise how lucky we are to have all the basic things we take for granted: a home, a job/an income and regular meals. When we have these three things, what could stop us creating a life of happiness, peace and love? In most cases, only our thoughts.

 

 

Aims for Week IV:

Take one step towards making one dream come true.

    Peppy song. I rarely get UNHAPPY about MY LIFE . . . it’s looking at the sadness around me that brings me down. So many have so much while others have so little.

      Yes, that is why it is so important to be grateful for what we have and to not compare ourselves to others.

    Love that window. Can’t imagine being where there are no traffic sounds. That would be peaceful!

      I used to live in at the crossroads in the centre of a capital city and got used to the continuous hum of traffic. Whenever I go back to visit my family I can’t get to sleep for the noise!

    I love that your blog is all about LOVE. I am a so in love with being in love its scary at times. I love your blog! I am definitely going to follow. I just love that you reminded yourself of all the things that you love and sometimes we need to do that. With ones daily walk in life you tend to forget these things!
