I've always been a great believer in the Abraham Lincoln adage that "Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." But to be happy, you need to take the time to celebrate, enjoy or at the very least just acknowledge the small happy events in your daily life. While I generally consider myself among the happier people I know, I related to Abigail Pogrebin's essay in the Huffington Post this week about her experience with a gratitude journal. It's too easy to focus on our problems, and not pay enough attention to gratitude. It may seem hokey to take the time everyday to write down one thing that you were grateful for, but it's little positive, repetitive habits like these that re-wire our daily experience. I've just ordered a Gratitude: A Journal. Get yours from Amazon.com for $10.17 — a true bargain for greater happiness.
