The Happyness Project – Aug 4th

Preface :

A few days back, during lunch time; I was listening to a wonderful TEDx talk about how we as humans have the natural tendency to look at the negatives and getting stuck in them. It was quite true and the speaker Miss Alison offered a simple technique on training to focus our mind on the positives in life – a gratitude journal or thinking of what made us happy that day !

Life is indeed cyclical and so are our days. During a day, we experience several highs and lows. I have tried to start a project for myself, where in I list down at least 5 things/ people/ incidents which made my day a “Happy” day and I’ve decided to call it “The Happyness Project (THP)”. Starting today, each day I will post a short synopsis of what made me happy that day and let the people behind that moment know that I treasure that moment. So, essentially; it is happyness, gratitude & thankfulness all practiced together. These posts will not be pinned to my blog home page but will be published under the menu “The Happyness Project”.

Thanks a lot for an incredibly happppppy day to :

  • The 8:30 AM (PS : Read as EARLY MORNING) call scheduled on a weekend morning, which enabled me to wake up & get ready, EARLY on a weekend morning after years I guess 😉

  • My lovely bhabhi (sister-in-law) – Hetal Raichura & brother (for waking me up on time for the call & for giving me the movie ticket), courtesy to whom, I got a movie ticket for my eternal crush – SRK’s latest movie – Harry Met Sejal.
