Today is International Day of Happiness and I am writing my Happiness Manifesto
My friend dared me to write my own happiness manifesto. So I’m picking up the gauntlet she threw down and writing my own Happiness Manifesto. With that… I promise that I love myself enough to do the following to the best of my ability at any given moment:
My HAPPINESS MANIFESTO
Say YES to Life daily
Choose love and happiness—first, last, and always
Say no to drama in my own life Laugh–unabashedly. Sing–LOUDLY. Dance–BOLDLY
Live from my heart
Make memories – Connect with people
Apologize and forgive to maintain inner peace
Give myself permission to feel what I am feeling
Eat well and exercise
Relax and breathe deeply to manage stress
Embrace on being happier
Do you what I love doing
Embrace my story, my power and be courageous
Smile often and be kind
Be silly. Read–everything
Hang out only with people who uplift my spirit
Not get stuck in a rut of self-doubt or self-recrimination
Not judge how other people live their lives
Intentionally make time for play and fun
Trust in myself and others
Believe in the good in people
Be generous and helpful
Watch less TV
Eat lots of chocolate
Cook, both simply and extravagantly.
Explore, discover and Travel
Dream big and bold
Wear ALL the colors. Be sparkly–in clothing and in spirit.
Inspire others to laugh and hope and love
Believe everything will be okay and work out
I Choose Happiness!
What do you choose?
What’s your manifesto look like?
Don’t have one. Try it. It’s pretty easy once you set your pen to paper. Post your manifesto on your page and link it here, or just post it in the comments. I’d love to read it, and with each manifesto we’re changing the world.
