One of my team leaders read an emoticon about "The 7 Habits of Happy People" and she put 7 challenges up for us to focus on. She did this to be helpful to some of us who are struggling right now! We were to choose as many as we were able to focus on! These questions or challenges really make you think!

I chose to blog about Number 2 tonight! "Put happiness on the agenda--think about what it is that makes you happy. What is it that makes you feel good?"

What makes me feel happy? Hmm....I don't think I have ever been asked that question before!
1.) God , His plan for my life, and the fact that He sent Jesus to die on a cross for me!
2.) Being around people who love me for myself, my family and friends of course!
3.) Meeting New People!
4) Traveling!
5.) Swimming!
6.) Being Unstoppable!
I am 52 years old! I use to be this person--unstoppable-- and one day soon she's coming back! My list could go on and on, but I will not be "Unstoppable" about it! These are my favorite!

What is it that makes you happy!
All of the above!

How have I chose to put happiness on my agenda?
I have a plan to get to my goal weight by next year, hopefully! I plan to take a cruise with some of my dear friends that I have meet online with SP then! I want to go to the UK. I have always wanted to see it! So now it has been incorporated into my weight loss plan of action!

What has this done for me! I am so excited I can't hardly stand it! I have a new reason more than ever to get these pounds off! emoticon

You too can , "Put happiness on your agenda?" emoticon

    Thanx for posting that, April - what a great way to get on The Positive Approach. Really makes you think about things, and when you focus on the positive, it has beneficial effects for all the areas in your life. Thinks me! :-D

    April you are unstoppable! You are committed and focused on your goals and you will achieve them! Your blog has reminded me how I need to focus on my goals, long-term, short-term and most importantly daily because that is where the action, one day at a time.

    My favorite "happiness" quote is "happiness is wanting what you have, not having what you want". Getting what you is great, but every single moment has the potential to be a happy one. We just gotta choose it.

    Great blog April. emoticon emoticon

    If you can open up your heart and your mind to everything around you, happiness becomes addictive and life becomes unstoppable. There are so many more postives than negatives in my life, and for that I am truly grateful!

    I love the fact that you are choosing happiness and digging deep into yourself for reasons to keep believing. It is a daily choice and sometimes it is hard to do. For me happiness is not something to wait for - it is the little, ordinary things in my life. It is my husband hugging me goodbye, the way the heat shimmers on the pavement, the taste of my coffee in the morning. I think happiness is everywhere and we just need to be aware of it.

    Why wait to be unstoppable - be unstoppable today!!

    That blog put a smile on my face! emoticon Thank you for sharing some of the things that make you happy. I don't have time to list what makes me happy, because I have to leave for work in a couple of minutes, but I have all day to think about that list. May your life be filled with happiness! emoticon

    Great blog. I also use to be unstoppable - now I'm stopping all the time!

    Can I ask what team you are on that has you doing the 7 Habits? It sounds like a fun team.

    Thank you for giving me something to think about as I drift off to sleep - about what makes me happy and how to become unstoppable again!

    Have a great day!
