Today is Day 10 of Happiness Month and it will be continuing all month long. This all started at the Secret Society of Happy People and if you want to pop over there and become an Amused Member, you can get a Free 31 Types of Happiness poster. As you can tell by my daily #HappinessHappens tweets and Facebook posts, I’ve been a member for a long, long time!
Today, to add happiness to your life: Enthusiastic! The energy behind enthusiasm is contagious, so if you need a boost of happiness, do something about which you are enthusiastic! The word “enthusiastic” is an adjective so that means it describes us or how we feel. It means:
- Having or showing intense and eager enjoyment, interest, or approval.
When was the last time you had intense, eager enjoyment over anything with your spouse? How about the last time both of you had an intense, eager interest? Or something s/he did that you intensely and eagerly approved of? Many people SAY that they want a passionate, fervent, vibrant marriage, but then they don’t actually engage in anything more interesting than watching TV and paying bills! So today find one thing that you and your spouse INTENSELY enjoy and do it. Go to that live band down at the Riverfront. Get off your heiney and GO to that car show! Watch that sci-fi show you both adore. Try that new wine together. You know that book you have been DYING to read? Read it to each other!! But whatever you do…today do something with energetic enthusiasm.
Over the next days, we’ll be going over all 31 ways to Add Happiness Every Day. You know too often I hear young people say “He doesn’t make me happy” or “I wish she would make me happy” but you know what? Happiness is not something that someone else “makes” you feel. You make choices in your life that can affect your happiness….and ultimately you CHOOSE whether to be happy every day or not. You can also choose to do things that would add happiness to your life every single today.Paragraph
