Something great is going to happen today -- I can't wait to see what it is!
Around the Corner and Current Specials:
"The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to
pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself."
Today we are going to start our morning with a simple
role-play, a technique I like to use once in a while. Let's say
that tonight for dinner you want to have homemade soup. You have a
craving. Your family has a craving. Everyone wants soup.
Unfortunately, you don't have a single ingredient needed to make
the soup. What would you do? (I will make a guess that you will go
get the ingredients.) Obviously, if you don't go get them, you'll
never fulfill that homemade soup-craving.
Happiness is a craving that we all have. But we can't sit and wait
for it to come our way, just as the ingredients for a recipe won't
magically appear. We have to make a conscious effort to go out and
Many times throughout our day we are faced with something we want
and we fulfill that want. We are thirsty - we go get something to
drink. We are hungry - we go get something to eat. We want to write
something down - we go get a pen. Happiness need not be any more
complicated - if we want happiness, we must go get it or create it
where we are.
Your Turn: Challenge yourself to create or catch happiness today.
Your affirmation: I create happiness in my life.
And as always, don't forget to start your day with a heartfelt: "Something great is going to happen today... I can't wait to see what it is!"
And when ending your day ask yourself:
"What is one more thing I can do to make today matter?"
