Project Happiness

Happy New Year !!
It's wonderful to begin a shiny, brand new day, a new month,
 and a new year!
I have so many wishes and hopes for this new year.
I hope it's 'my year to shine'.
I say the same thing every year, and some years there are a few more downs, than ups.
A few more valleys than hills.
Never the less..... I try to stay positive.
I'm always so very grateful for all my many blessings.
There are many things that I'd like to accomplish in this new year.
My number one goal is to work on my "Project Happiness".
To work on finding that happy feeling, each day.
To work on finding ways to serve...... because service makes me happy.
I'm still striving to always have that "Attitude of Gratitude", and add in a huge dose of happiness.
My hope for each of us, is that this year is filled with much happiness.
Happy thought: "For every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of happiness"

  5. Kerin, Happy New Year to you too! And I love reading your posts because you do have a lovely attitude on life! I feel very uplifted! Like Joyce Meyer says:(paraphrase) When feeling depressed or down and out, go do something nice or good for someone like bake some cookies or help them will take the focus off yourself and you won't feel so bad! Blessings to you and your family for 2013! Roxie

  6. Much happiness - that sounds so nice. And yes it does seem like there is a few more challenges every year then the last. So, much happiness and less stress would be something to obtain. So here is to that huge dose of happiness and managing the stress better. Happy New Year!! And Blessings to you.

  11. Hi Kerin!

    Great thoughts for the new year!

    All I have to do is look at your blog and it makes me feel happy and positive - I think you will have no problem accomplishing that goal! But, it's always a good thing to think about as your feet hit the floor in the morning!

Thank you for taking time to comment.
It means so much to me, that you've taken a few minutes in your day, to stop by and visit.
