The Happyness Project – Aug 19th

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 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 :

  • Saturday morning was a productive one – woke up early, did some errands from the huge To Do List I carry 😛 Striking off items on my To Do list is really fun – gives a sense of accomplishments !


  • Study session in afternoooon instead of having my usual nap. It was short but something is better than nothing 😉 Forex – you are such a pain 😦 Nonetheless, could solve your enigma 😀

  • Phone call with parents. I miss u both

  • Phone conversation with my friend on Saturday afternoon after long. Saying we had an argument would be putting it quite mildly, but it was refreshing as to how we could pick up from where we left and help and listen to one another

  • I was fasting over the weekend and my brother – Vatsal took special care of me, to ensure I was well rested and pampered me so much 🙂 Thank youuuuu brother ❤

  • Again, when all rays of hope are flickered away with the storm, a candle is lit for you out of nowhere. I have also found my ray of hope. I am trusting you God fully and thank you for that ray of hope


  • Writing about my eureka thought for the day – Show Thy Love

  • I had connected a friend with someone I met over something I thought could be of common interest professionally. My friend let me know that their meeting went off well and I was really happy to help and connect them

  • Early to bed …zzzZZzzZZzzz…
