I get these daily quotes from Gretchen Rubin (author of The Happiness Project and many other great books).
This one is from Leslie Jordan’s book “How Y’all Doing?”. I listened to the book on audio a while back and it was great.
If you’re not familiar with Leslie Jordan, he was an incredibly talented and funny character actor and comedian.
Even if you don’t recognize his name, chances are if you look him up, you’d recognize him. He has guest starred on many shows.
Looking at what he said here, it is so true. Happiness is a choice and a habit and you do have to work at it.
I work at it by:
- Spending time with and/or talking to family/friends
- Focusing on being thankful
- Focusing on the good things in my life
- Reminding myself to engage in self-care
There are a lot more, and as we all know, somedays it’s easier than others. Those can be the days that I struggle.
What are your ways at working on happiness?
