Faerietale Happiness Challenge: The Good Just Might Win!

One of the reasons I decided to do this faerietale happiness challenge is that I have suspected for a while that I am happier than I think I am. I think it's too easy to let worries and stress block the sun, so to speak, so that I don't count the everyday, ordinary (or even special) good moments I experience.

Planning this challenge was part of my attempt to see what would happen if I got really on purpose about it. And so far, what's happening is that I am more aware of that moment-to-moment happiness I suspected was there.

So I've decided that whenever I remember to do so, I'm going to check in with myself and give myself a simple happiness rating for that moment. Then maybe I can use the average as my daily score.

Or not. Because if I did that for some days, my score would be about 4 or 5  when my overall impression is more like 6 or 7.


Good Moments...

Yummy cup of tea
Reading my book: Second Star to the Right
Watching the Modern Family marathon with my son
Watching the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon
Ordering a few of my favorite things :)



So here's an insight: sometimes if you gather together enough of the good moments, they nullify the impact of the bad ones.

Want some feel good as we head into the weekend?...




Have a great weekend!
