12 Steps Towards Happiness

1 Dec

Thank – To the people who tolerate me every day.  I Thank you. 🙂


Experience – I’m not a fan of change, per se… But I am open to trying or doing new things.  #NewBeginnings

Give – It truly is better to give than receive.  This Holiday season, we have already donated to a Food Pantry; Animal Shelter; Team Gleason; Goodwill; Amvets and American Cancer Society.  Toys for Toys and Warm Coats for the Needy will happen in the next week.  Even small bits help a lot.  Be thankful for what you have and give what you can.


Hike – Maxie and I do this daily, but we will be amping this up!

Help – I just signed up to be a Mentor and do try, as often as possible, to help others.  Warms my heart.

Meditate – Mindfulness is a work in progress.  But I’m working on it.

Eat Well – We have just about turned into a carb-free house.  Focusing more on protein, vegetables and fruits.  Of course with some wine, champagne and vodka peppered in along the way.

Socialize – While I am truly a home-body…I’ve accepted every invitation thrown my way this holiday season.

Exercise – Walking a dog, even though it’s a large dog, does not an exercise program make.  #JustSaying

Aim – I love goals and I love lists.

Rest – I’ve mastered this.  Zzzzzzzzz

Smile – I like smiling.  Smiling’s my favorite.


Speaking of Happiness… What a difference four years makes:


Missing two in the bottom picture, but all these kids bring me much Happiness!

What else makes me happy?  How about a wedding on a beach?  Best. Weekend. Ever.


My goodness, it’s already December?  What?  How did that happen?  Make it a great weekend!  Make it the best weekend, ever, because we only have a few more left this year.
