Happy Track Day #7:  Today I got quite a bit accomplished.  I realized that getting things done really does make me happy. I feel productive, I feel successful, I feel accomplished, I feel happy.

Happy Track Day #6: I let my self shop just a little bit today.  Its been about 6 months since I’ve bought clothes of any kind.  That’s huge for me.  I shopped a little today and got a new pair of jeans. Practical and exciting!  I LOVE new jeans.  I love new jeans that seem to be made for your body.  You know the kind… the kind that  have the perfect shade, the right amount of pockets, the right fit, and are not too long!  I LOVE new perfect jeans.

Happy Track Day #4: What makes me happy today?  The feeling I get in my heart on nights like tonight.  My skin, muscles, bones, and even finger nails may be frozen when I stand out there but the feeling in my heart is warmer than the sunshine.  I could do that every night and never noticed the icicles that form from our noses, never notice the shivers we can’t shake, never notice anything but the smiles and the moments.  Its the moments, the phone calls, the glances, its the whole thing that brings the warmth to my heart.  That warm feeling in my heart, that makes me happy.

Happy Track Day #2: Today I’m happy my first ever Ebay bid was out bid and I lost.  Not happy I lost the bid (I needed the wheel cap cover) but happy to have experienced the full experience of bidding on Ebay for the 1st time.


My New Goal February 22, 2010

I’m all excited about a new site I’ve come across.  The site is  Now I know what most people are going to think once they figure out the site.  I like it for many reasons but mostly because it gives me the motivation I need. Yeah maybe I’m on a kick right now that will last a week and I’ll be over it but for not let me enjoy the high.  I’m really excited about 43things. I’m excited about the list I’ve made so far and they way I can encourage others with the things on their lists that I have accomplished.

1 thing on my list is to find at least 1 thing each day that makes me happy and document it for a year.  The likelihood of me sticking to this for a full year isn’t great but I’m going to try.  I’ve slacked on blogging and feel like whenver I’ve blogged in the past its all been negative.  I’m changing my blog to track my happiness.  Read if you’d like, don’t if you don’t.  Enjoy!

Day 1 of Happy Track: I love shoes they make me happy.
