March 20 is International Happiness Day

For those that are newer here, feeling happy might sound really foreign, but I promise you that some day you'll be happy again. When we are low it is helpful to look for the little things in life that make us happy. These may be outside of infidelity but that is ok. For happiness is a fuel to keep us moving forward. So the challenge which I think every one can do is to think of something that makes you happy and post it.

It could be a pet or a child or a type of weather or that Spring is here (northern hemisphere folks) or Fall (southern hemisphere folks). It could be that your happy not to be fighting a cold or it could be that you've just climbed a mountain.

So for me, it's my kids. Their smiling faces and laughter.

Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

Today is the first day of Spring and it's also my mom's birthday. So that alone brings a smile to my face

The snow has melted and maybe just maybe warm weather is finally around the corner. I booked my first trip ever to Vegas last night AND tommorrow marks exactly 3 months until my D can be finalized. *Does the minion dance at my desk*

I have a couple. Is that ok?

1. My husband is seeking support for his depression

2. My adorable, healthy children who make me laugh every day

3. My best fran is coming to visit me tomorrow

4. Sunshine and budding trees

5. SPRING IS HERE!!!!!!!!!!

Our pastor challenged us a week ago to write a list of all our "blessings" compared to our "disappointments" and put it on the fridge. Yeah, there is a bunch of junk in the disappointments column. But there are WAY more in the blessings column. The very fact I have another day is a blessing. The sun came up. My children are fed. My husband has work. Each "little" thing we take for granted in life is a blessing. And a happiness.

Sorry for the mini t/j Mooster.

It's my SILs birthday and she turned on me after dday. It doesn't take up much space in my head anymore but I can't help but think about it a little today.

I like that it's International Happiness Day. I'll focus on that and the promise of warmer weather in the future. My kids and I have been enjoying Pharell's Happy song. It's a nice little pick me up.

Strength comes from within. You can't get it from someone or go somewhere to get it. It is already here, waiting to be used when you need it most. Believe in yourself.

I'll admit to waking up today in less than an enthusiastic manner. But now I am sitting here looking out the window at the absolutely gorgeous day we're having here,and seeing the trees already putting on their new leaves.

It's a great reminder of how life goes on, and it's turned into a pretty damn good life, after all.


Say what you wanna say and let the words fall out...honestly
I wanna see you be brave

Pretty pretty please, don't you ever ever feel

lol

They were talking about this on the news this morning when we were just waking up. I looked at my H and said "International Happiness Day? F--- that!" We had a good laugh and then a few minutes of cuddling before we had to get up.

My list:
- when I asked my son what kind of day he was going to have at school he gave me a huge grin (the kind that fills the whole face) and said "A great day!!!!"
- I am working from home today and so is H, so I didn't have to drive to the office in the blowing snow
- Our son passed his swimming lessons last night. It took him 3 tries to pass the last level so he was absolutely delighted and we are happy for him.
- After hockey ends this Sunday, we have 13 glorious days of NO ACTIVITIES. I am giddy from the thoughts of freedom.
