At the time I created my Happy Journal, I was knee deep in transforming my finances. There were days I felt overwhelmed. There were days I felt like I was failing. There were days that I felt like I could never overcome all the challenges in front of me. I was worried about allowing all of this to influence my attitude. I knew that if I could stay focused on the future and believe better days were ahead that I could be open minded and see opportunities and solutions, instead of just problems.
That is when I created my happy journal.
My happy journal was an experiment in joy. While, I was practicing gratitude at this time, I really wanted to move past just being grateful. I wanted to celebrate joy in my life. I wanted to feel inspired and uplifted so every day I set about looking for joy or things to celebrate in life.
The entry below from 2012 was a list of things I love and always make me feel alive with joy…..and I can enjoy them without spending a dime!
Things I love……
The sound of waves washing against the shore
The glow of a full moon
A beautiful sunset
The buzz of crickets in the summer
A cool evening breeze by the water.
Words that speak to my heart.
A cozy fire in a snowstorm.
What would be on your list?
