Nicola and Anita will appreciate this (if they haven't discovered it already):
the Things to Be Happy About website.
Anita introduced me to the book, 14,000 Things to Be Happy About, and it inspired Nicola and I to start our own happy list that has continued to be updated for 10+ years .
I've posted about the happy list before, but it is so great it is worth mentioning again and again. It is very therapeutic. It is simple to write in and fun to look back on. It's a diary of sorts, but there is no need for context.
My additions for today:
the local library
mint chocolate chip ice cream
a good lecture
being cozy inside on a rainy day
friends who bring you food
people who are "handy"
I have had the "real" happy list for quite a while now... guess it's time to send it back to Nicola. It will be on it's way soon!
