Plan Some Fun!

The Happiest Place on Earth!

 

Okay, here we go… Another Monday is here and the view to the weekend seems like it cannot be any further away!

One thing I like to do on Mondays, is plan my week. Not just what I have to get done for work, even though that seems insurmountable at times, but I also like to schedule some fun things as well. Continue reading

Is Happiness Boring?

 

From: The Happiness Project

Some people argue that it is better to be interesting than happy. But that’s a false choice. It’s true that is you’re trying to tell an interesting story, unhappiness makes a much easier subject. There’s more conflict, more drama. But real life is different. Studies show that happiness doesn’t make people complacent or self-centered, but instead, makes them more interested in tackling challenges and helping others.

Act Happy!

 

 

Need a quick jolt of happiness right now? …And who doesn’t…

Put a smile on your face right now, and keep smiling. Research shows that even an artificially induced smile has a positive influence on your emotions. Just going through the motions of happiness brightens your mood.

And if you are smiling, other people will perceive you as being friendlier and more approachable

 

6 Tips for Sparking Creativity!

Sometimes February can be a long month even though it is the shortest. It has been a while since the last big holiday rush and Spring seems ever so far away. I am reminded of a favorite childhood book of mine ‘The Phantom Tollbooth” by Norton Juster. Where in a part of the story a little boy named Milo is diving in a toy car through the mythical place called the Doldrums.  That is my idea of February!

When you own your own business, there is no downtime for being creative. Everything around you should be an inspiration and if it’s not, move away from where you are!

Another one of my favorite books is The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. She inspires me on a daily basis and I found some of her tips to be essential when driving myself out of the doldrums!

Love Rocks!

     It’s rare that you see someone looking up at the sky as they walk; most people are looking down. I noticed that I too look down as I walk and I also noticed that most of the time the ground is dark and gloomy.
That got me thinking; since people are looking down why not make something that will make people smile and won’t blow away. Rocks! Rocks don’t blow away and they are easy to paint on.
     One of my favorite websites now is Pinterest. There are so many great ideas from folks all over the world and it spurred my creative spirit and I found this idea to make people smile. It just so happens to be around Valentine’s Day as well!
Over the weekend my friend Jen and her daughter came over and we painted rocks. We painted bright colors along with hearts on the rocks.
     Then we placed them all over Tampa in hopes that when you are looking down, you will see one of our bright color rocks with a heart on it and it will make you happy.

      If you see one, see one, feel free to take it and bring joy into your heart. If you don’t want to take it, leave it for the next person… they may need to find happiness for themselves.
