I AM 50 YEARS OLD and I’m proud of it!!! Why not? I consider it a blessing to have lived this long on the planet. But not only to have lived this long, but to have lived this long and to be HAPPY…truly happy with my life! I actually could have helped Pharrell to write the song “HAPPY”! Does this mean that I everything about my life is the way that I want it to be? Absolutely not! However, it’s not about having a perfect life, but a contented life.
We are all human and life happens to everybody. But like one of my favorite gospel songs puts it… “I’ve had some good days and I had some bad days. But all my good days outweigh my bad days, so I won’t complain.” Not complaining and learning to be content in whatever state that you are in...this is the Secret Sauce! One sure way not to complain is through showing GRATITUDE!
Gratitude will shift everything in your life regardless of what you may be going through. Think about what you have going right in your life and not focus on the negative. Focus on what really matters will make a profound difference. So, why don’t you switch it up a bit and try on a little "Happy" today. I’m sure it looks good on you! Here are my “50 Shades of Happy” to share with you what I’m most grateful for.
MOVIES: Classics, funny, suspense, action, love stories, and tear jerkers are the best.
REFLECTION: Happy comes in many shades. What does your “Happy” look like?
SUCCESS ACTION: Write your list of what you are grateful for. Read it everyday and watch things change in your life. Your whole perspective changes and you will find your "Happy Place" and do your "Happy Dance!"
