February Happiness - Attitude

This month for my Happiness Project I'm not focusing on taking action, I'm focusing on my attitude.  I tend to be an overthinker, dissatisfied, nervous, worried, and so on and so forth.  I want to be light... to have what Gretchen Rubin describes as a "contented heart."  I think my Happiness Project so far has really helped me to, well be happy, but there's still work to be done.

My resolutions this month:

1.  Let things go - I tend to harp.  I really am very sensitive when it comes down to it. I let things eat away at me.  Every perceived insult or slight makes me quaver with insecurity.  It has to be more cathartic to just let go of all the negative feelings.

2.  Cultivate an attitude of gratitude - I have so many blessings in my life great and small, and too often I just don't take the time to spend a moment in appreciation for what I have, whether it's the roof over my head, the health of my family, or the parking spot right across the street from my job.

3.  Think positive- I believe that thoughts have weight and therefore gravity so thinking good things brings good things to you and negative thoughts bring bad experiences.  So banning criticism, judgement, negativity, and maybe curbing the sarcasm is a goal for this month.

I'm looking forward to laughing more and finding more peace this month.
