My Happiness Project

Be so happy that when others look at you they become happy too.:

I’ve already talked about my 30 before 30 bucket list but I also had another idea to make the last year of my 20’s a little bit different. I can be a liiiitle bit of a debbie downer; I’m a naturally pessimistic person. But I sat down and wrote out  a list of things I can do that make me happy and it turned into a project.

I’m starting this Monday because a) my birthday is right around the corner and more importantly b) my work schedule changed today so I can start this new routine consistently. I function better with routine and guidelines so here are they are.

  • I will do this at the beginning of every Monday
  • My “beginning”starts at 4pm (I work nights)
  • I can 30 mins, 1 hour, 17 hours if I want, as long as I begin on time
  • It needs to be something I don’t need to depend on anyone to do
  • they don’t have to be done in any particular order
  • It has to be FUN
