A peek into the ebook … insights [1]

In this post (and following posts) I’d like to share some insights from the book, to give you an idea of what’s in it.

My favourite photo from 100 Happy Days

I’m starting with my favourite photo from the 100 days. Hmmm, this is hard… I think it has to be this delightful little chap who appeared on my deck just before sunset on Day 30, during the height of negative events.

“Happiness Resolutions” (if there is such a thing!)

I also want to share something that helped me keep my focus for the 100 days. Here’s an excerpt from my Day 4 post:

So here I am, reflecting on the thing that has made me happy today. Call it what you will, serendipity or grace, the Universe in its wisdom has given me a nudge. And I am acknowledging that nudge. In the spirit of keeping my momentum going for the next 97 days, I have put together what Gretchen Rubin (in her book ‘The Happiness Project’) calls a Happiness Resolutions Chart which are ways to remind myself of the changes I want to make in my life to be a little happier. Gretchen assures me that everyone will have different ideas about what will make them happy and looking at my list, it is different to hers.

    This is a really great idea, Debbie. I have been feeling so overworked and stressed out that a part of me has forgotten how to relax. I think “take time out” would be on the top of my list….I’ll think of more and link to your post when I have time. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Hmmm …btw I love your feathered visitor…he is focusing outward …vision …even though he has snuck a quick look at you (for the sake of security). He is very calm … and balanced of course 🙂

    My UK niece recently sent me a list of things to write down (I was in a bad state that night and depression had not only knocked the door down, but barged into the room and taken over).

    One of the questions was: “list 8 things you do to remind yourself that you have value and that you matter and that you are loved “. This stumped me… it was similar to your Happy resolution list”. I think mothers in particular tend to give so much that they lose themselves in the process. Nowadays I garden (NEVER was interested before my family left) …its very cathartic …I Doodle when inspired (started actively taking time out to be alone to do that a year or 2 ago) …being able to give someone a prophetic/encouraging word from the Lord is very fulfilling …I take my dog with me most places …just touching him, communicating with him inspires me …ah I feel a blog coming on …
