On the path to Perpetual HappyPosted: October 27, 2010
I don’t even remember when, but some time ago I signed up as part of The Happiness Project. I just got an email reminding me about it today. Then later as I was browsing my feeds I saw that Andrea over at The Fishbowl had made a related post about her 12 commandments.
This is just what I need in my life right now. We are about to move and welcome a new baby and I’m about to turn 30 and I’ve been looking at the next 4 months as a cleansing period. I hope to come out of it more myself and clear on what I want and how to get it and how to sit comfortably within that.
So what’s the idea here?
You make a list of "Commandments" for yourself. They are meant to be daily reminders to guide you in your interactions and help you have a happy fulfilling life. Not a "to-do" list or a "do not do" list per-se.
Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:
- bring joy
- don’t keep score
- do things that matter
- go outside
- be present
- be positive within negative interactions
- be tidy
- pay attention to synchronicities
- fight for what is right
What’s on your list?
