I generally do think of myself as a pretty positive and happy person, but I've been in a bit of a funk lately and want to boost myself out of it. Even if I hadn't been in a low mood, I think everyone can stand to be a little happier, no matter how happy they already are.
I've been reminded of when I used to keep a gratitude journal, and I really want to get back to that. So, the plan is that throughout the week, I am going to keep a list of things that make me happy and that I'm thankful for and publish it here every Saturday. This week will be short, since I didn't start this list earlier in the week. Hopefully, it's a ridiculously long list every week!
Music to make me happy this week
- Mirrors by Justin Timberlake
- Friday I'm In Love by The Cure
- There's No Going Back by Sick Puppies
- Need You Tonight by INXS
I'm happy that school shopping is done!
My Mom is getting a new dog next week, and he comes with the best name... Mr. Farley. I just can't get over how flipping cute that name is and that my Mom doesn't want to change it!
I've been trying to wear jewelry more this past week. I usually wear all three pieces of our wedding set (Bill can't wear his), an opal ring with 2 tiny diamonds, and a turquoise ring and some bracelets. I realized the other day that, without even planning it, I wear all three of the girls' birthstones... opal for Olivia, diamond for Isabelle, and turquoise for Zoe. =)
I was made a Healthy Body forum administrator in a group on CafeMom. I'm pretty excited about that and hope that it helps keep me on track and accountable since I've been such a slacker this summer.
I hope everyone had a good week!
