What Makes You Happy?
It’s National Happiness Happens Day today! Franklin D Roosevelt once said “Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.” Today is the perfect day to sit back and think about what makes you happy and how you should probably do more of what makes you happy. What do you do to make happiness happen in your life? Are you experiencing enough of it? I asked a few people around the office what makes them happy, surprisingly I didn’t get the generic answers I expected. I was told :playing golf, being recognized, a good beer, not having to work late, and makeup.
Here are 4 things that make me happy.
1. Travel. I love sneaking away and jumping on a plane! It’s the perfect excuse to not answer your cellphone. “Sorry I didn’t have any service!”
2. Some beach, somewhere. I’m convinced a few hours at the beach can cure anxiety and stress, even if it’s only for a few hours.
3. Pan. Mexican sweet bread is probably the reason why I pray and suck it in trying to fit into my jeans every morning.
4. Concerts. Want to get a high that lasts for months? Go to a concert. Don’t make the creep face if you get a picture with one of your favorite artists. I heard it makes for a horrid photo.
