Faerietale Happiness Challenge: What I Learned this Month

What Do I Do that Creates Faerietale Happiness?...

These are the things I did on the days that I gave a rating of 7 or above. What surprises me about them is how simple they are. Nothing fancy. But powerful, nonetheless.

(1) Drinking a yummy cup of tea

(2) Reading a good book

(3) Watching TV and hanging out with my son

(4) Watching a movie

(5) Listening to my favorite music and singing along

(6) Wearing my favorite colors (or shopping for & finding something in a fave color)

(7) Faerie meditations ~ maintaining spiritual practice is enchanting

(8) Enjoying the breeze as I walk, or watching the trees sway or connecting with the moon

My Insights about Faerietale Happiness...

(1) Spending time with family doing fun things like going out to eat or even playing a board game, makes me happy.

(2) Sometimes if you gather together enough of the good moments, they nullify the impact of the bad ones.

(3) It stresses me out when my plans change suddenly, so trying to plan well help me create more happiness on days like that. But sometimes, I just have to weather the change and create comfort when it’s finally all done!

(4) Thinking about or doing something that contributes to living my purpose makes me happy.

(5) Sometimes it feels like my to-do list runs the show more than anything else! But I am finding that if I create space in between the items on that list, and do something small that I enjoy (even just stopping to give my son a hug), it increases my overall sense of happiness.

Tomorrow, I'll tell you my biggest insight this month, and what I plan to do going forward.

What if you could finally heal
whatever is blocking you from the faerietale life
that's waiting for you?



  1. Hi, I'm joining you from the Ultimate Blog Challenge. I agree with Nick that you have some great life points here. What I noticed was that none of them means spending much money, if at all. I'll browse your blog some more after the challenge has finished and I have more time!

    1. Thanks so much, Sue! You're right, they don't require a whole lot of money (thank goodness). That was a big insight for me, too, that there were things I could do now that didn't require making a whole lot more money than I do now. Most of my happiness list is like that, actually. Only a few things, like living in a lakefront home, would require a big increase in income.

  2. great points. love this challenge post each time i stop by your blog.


Thanks so much for coming to visit and sharing your thoughts! Let me know where you are and I'll come say hello at your place next.

By the way, I know that sometimes my readers disagree with what I say here and I wanted to let you know that not only is it okay with me if you happen to as well, but you also are welcome to tell me so, as long as you do so kindly.

Have a great day!
