My Joy List

Monday, June 01, 2009

I went walking with a friend that lost their spouse last year in a accident. They were bumming today and I remembered something I was told to do when I was depressed. Make a list of things that bring you joy. The thought is that you try to do 1 thing a day. so here goes...

Reading my magazines
watching my kids play
doggie snuggles
new socks
dinner parties
going to the movies (or renting)
Bunko with the girls
Lemon Gellato
riding in a convertible at night
Sleeping in
Drinking Coffee in bed Watching Sunday Morning
Listening to my girls sing (sometimes it's like I live in a musical)
Date nights
Cold Beer - Hot day
Snow angels
Thanksgiving Dinner
Going to the Zoo with the kiddos
Swinging on the swings
bare feet in cool sand
Fresh air & view from the top of the mountain

... I'm sure there is more

    Great idea- I also like the gratitude rock idea- find a pebble and putit in your pocket- everynight when you clean them out there it is THANK YOU every day before you leave put it in THANK YOU- and then everytime you need change- whala there it is THANK YOU- the more we are thankful the more we will have to be thankful for- same principle- as Joy list just something I do that makes me remember to have joy/ or gratitude-
    Got the grill today!- Oh boy!
