My happiness Challenge Day 40

Saturday, September 02, 2017

Happy people...

40. Appreciate life and retain a "beginner's mind," meaning they don't lose sight of the wonderment of life, and they aren't afraid to show excitement, be it a brilliant sunset or a random encounter with a loved one.

I don't know about this beginners mind idea. New beginnings aren't usually a great thing form me and tend to make me cry a lot. But once I get used to a new situation I tend to have a Pollyanna outlook and appreciate the good things that have come out of new experiences.

I like to count the reasons I love my husband and I enjoy cataloging all the amazing attributes of my daughter. I appreciate the beauty that surrounds me and the joy my students bring to me everyday. I enjoy working hard everyday to help kids reach the bright futures they deserve.

I will work on my outlook about new beginnings since they've always turned out to be good things. I'm considering changing schools next year, but I'm going to have to pray about it.

I am happy.
