It’s Monday — Could You Use a Happy Thought?

If you answered yes (and even if you didn’t), check out the blog called 1000 Awesome Things.  This is a fun blog to browse when you could use a little bit of awesome in your life.  It is also a good reminder to appreciate the simple joys in life.  And if you are curious about the image to the right, check out #860: When the vending machine gives you two things instead of one.

When I first saw this blog, it reminded me of the book called 14,000 Things to Be Happy About by Barbara Ann Kipfer.  This book was introduced to me many years ago by a very positive-thinking co-worker.  One of my favorites from Kipfer’s book was “the little red string in (old) band aids.”   Since I could use a little boost now & then, I started my own personal list, which included little things from my kids’ lives as well as favorite books & authors.

    Getting the news from my doctor that my cancer is still stabilized! 2 1/2 years survivor.

    Having my nearly 12 year old son want me to make him a homemade halloween costume, esp. makes up for his refusing to wear the gorilla costume I made him when he was 2.

    Making salsa from your own homegrown ingredients.

    It’s the simple things that give you your closest moments!

    I think of the fun I had dancing with my husband on our wedding day. The warm greetings I get from my dogs when I get home always make me feel better.

    I don’t care what day it is, I can always use a happy thought.

    I have been using Kurt Wright’s question “What is the best thing to happen to you today?” I got it from his book Breaking the Rules.

    I appreciate and thank you for the suggestion of starting my own list of good things in life. I will start one today.

    I’m way too good at maintaining a litany of bad things. Keeping a list of good things will create balance.
