6 Secrets of Happiness, Small Treats, Joy, Yippee!

   “One of the secrets of a happy life is continuous small treats."
                                           - Iris Murdoch

Envision World Happiness

One secret I want to share with you today is that I'm reflecting on the

quotation above the heart picture. It was written by Iris Murdoch (author 

and philosopher). I discovered the quotation in Gretchen  

Rubin's The Happiness Project Moment of Happiness Newsletter.

Thanks Gretchen. Your newsletter supplies me with continuous small 

treats that brighten moments of my day. If you want to know more, 

check out Gretchen Rubin's Website.

The Happiness Project, Gretchen Rubin's first book on happiness 

continues to suggest that one key to happiness is to be good to oneself 

and pursue those things that create well-being (fun, friendship, love, 

understanding) and cut back on those things that pull you down (worry, 

negativity, blame, and rehashing the past).  I intend to read Gretchen's 

Rubin's new book, Happier at HomeHow about you?

Warning!  Don't go.

3.Show up for my life by being present right now, right here.

4.Nurture myself by eating right, sleeping enough, exercising, and giving and receiving emotional support.

5.Seek meaning and purpose in my life, plus reserve time for goofing off.
