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 August 2nd, 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”.
Today was a happy day, because :
- My brother is so kind to help me with packing my lunch before leaving – it makes my morning so smooth. Thank you, Vatsal 🙂
Chit chat over breakfast with Daisy – Daisy, we ought to do this more often !
Talk over the phone with Trupti, my friend and guide. You are such a sunshine, T ! Wish you all the best as you go to seek your Great Perhaps ❤ xoxo
Birthdays of my favorite friends – Priii & DP – I wrote a letter and poem for their birthday present. Feels great to make a friend’s birthday special with your personalized present.
Thanks brother for the tasty pohas for dinner – the best feeling in the world is when you come home from office late, tired and in not such a upbeat mood, and have hot tasty Vatsal special poha for dinner 😀
