Start with Dessert – Put Joy on your Plate

After multiple email communications with a new friend, she posed the following question;

“Do you ever have a bad day?”


My first thought was clear,
“Nope, I don’t.”

Then I thought,
“WOW, is that true??”

I wrote back,
”  I have moments where I am not my best,
I just don’t turn those moments into days :)”

It is true; I do have the experience of a Happy Day every day. It is the most important purpose of my day, start off Happy and hang on! I have been practicing this for almost twenty years. A lot of things change over time, but one thing remains consistantly the same; I can absolutely, without a doubt, find my “HAPPY Place”, every single day.

The real question is how long can we stay Happy?
How do we create a HAPPY Place that is sustainable all day long? Whether we call this moment of Connection, a High Vibration, the Spirit of God, or simply “Happy”; this is what the pursuit is all about. This is where all the FUN is!

Life goes on and on. How do we steer? First is determining the direction we want to go. We can choose HAPPY and then practice, practice, practice. Add joy to as many experiences as we can.

What we think about matters. We have to be attentive. Abraham suggests that hold a high vibration thought for 17 seconds, feel the shift and keep going for another 17 seconds. Yes, even the Good Book agrees; what we think about matters.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is fair, whatever is pure, whatever is acceptable, whatever is commendable, if there is anything of excellence and if there is anything praiseworthy—keep thinking about these things. (Phillipians 4:8)

Practice every day, small things all add up, liking starting off with dessert as a HAPPY breakfast and appreciating every bite.

 It is in my pursuit, that I find our Happiness; every where.

Have FUN practicing HAPPY,

    Absolutely correct. Happiness and joy is a choice. Things happen in any given day that we can’t control but what we can control is our thinking and attitudes. Here’s to a blessed day. Much love.
