Happiness Project 23

Happy Happy

Another happy blog. 

1.  Babies 
I almost had a wonderful weekend with my <1 year old grandson.   Talk about fun.  All that beginner’s mind, curiosity, unconditional love, unbridled joy, and newness is awesome.  I can’t help but happy being with someone so fresh from “what is not this”. Maybe I’ll get another opportunity.  
2.  OD – The Order of Disorder 
It doesn’t get much more Zen than this.  I want to be a boobiesattva.   
3.  Answer change
I am usually carrying around at least two cameras. As a result I’m often asked, “Are you a photographer?”   I’m much happier now that I answer “yes”.   That doesn’t mean I’m a good photographer, but I do travel around taking photos on an almost daily basis.  That is one of my primary creative activities.

Share the joy.  If you want to, tell us something that made you happy this week.

It’s About the Lights 

2 Comments

Every light is beautifully unique and shines where it will. I tried to save the world and found I had to save myself. As a light worker I polish my lamp. Maybe it shines on the world a wee bit. Maybe it just shines for me. I work out my own salvation with fear and trembling. My world is my tribe. Some remain but many of the brilliant and beautiful lamps that have lighted my way have transitioned. I travel on.

I’m still managing a weekly happy blog. lol Surprises me.    

1.  The Happiness Project  
It makes me happy I’ve been able to carry through on a weekly happiness post.  I have not been a consistent blogger in the recent past.  👍
2.  Super Powers
I have read some things about people’s super powers.   They often challenge the reader to identify a super power of their own.  After some thought I decided one of my super powers is a general feeling of optimism. I am happy with that.
3.  The Eclipse Coffee and Books 
One of my fav places is closing. I’m not happy it is closing.   I will miss the coffees, the espresso martinis, the food, and the atmosphere.  But I am happy that I’m currently living close enough to visit extra  times and try more of their menu offerings before this 16 year old hangout is gone.  I am grateful for all the good times I have had there. 

Share the joy.  If you want to, tell us something that made you happy this week.

The Happiness Project #7

11 Comments

The Happy Things Project continues.  Each week I try to post 3 things that create happiness in my eternal Now. I feel there will be repetition and I feel that each Now brings new and unique happinesses too.  

1. Traveling on down the road 
I’ve been stuck in Alabama longer than I expected.  It will be May before I totally leave Alabama but at least I’m rolling again. 
2.  COE campgrounds
I get to stay for half price and they are usually out in the wilds of the country. Being rural is a nice change from my urban and suburban camping experiences.  I have three more weeks of rural planned and then it’s onto my heart city, NOLA.
3. Hiking
I really enjoy walking about.  My heart adventure was a big setback and I’ve been building up my stamina to get back out on the trails.  Currently I’m camped at Minooka Park where there are miles of trails.  

The road to Minooka.

The Happy Things Project continues. If things go as planned, once a week I post 3 things that create happiness in my eternal Now. I feel there will be repetition and that each Now brings new and unique happinesses too.  

1. Spending time with the people I love
I listened to On Being with Krista Tippet, an interview with Carlo Rovelli. Part of the title was, All Reality is Interaction. One of the grains of science mentioned was, things don’t exist until they collide.  It is in the “colliding” with the ones I love and the ones who love me that I thrive.  Don’t misunderstand, I need vast amounts of solitude too. 
2. Daylight Savings Time: Springing forward and longer days
It is so nice to have more day time in the evening.  It’s nice to have more daylight hours in general. 
3.  I got to spend another weekend working with friends on their treehouse. It is fun watching the progress.  I think it’s painted barn red now.

 The Happy Things Project continues. Once a week I post 3 things that create happiness in my eternal Now.  I feel there will be repetition.  I feel that each Now brings new and unique happinesses too.  

1.  My curious future:  The unknown that is created by every choice in the Now.

2.  Journaling:  I try to write in my journal every day at least once.  I usually wind up writing in it several times a day. Rather than have multiple journals, I have different sections in one:

Gratutude Helps and Heals
– my daily grateful notes 
It is helpful for me to start the day being thankful.

Dream a Little Dream
–  my dream journal
I don’t always know I dream and I don’t always remember my dreams. I write what I remember. 

My Affirmations
– Encouraging words to myself 
Never hurts to think good things about myself.  I have often battled negative self talk.  So I replace it with positive. 

The Card Game
– Each day I pull one Tarot card from the Osho Zen Tarot deck
That is my favorite deck. It’s a Zen thing. Zen is part of the name. Get it. hahahaha 


Phrases and Ideas and Stuff
– A miscellaneous category 
Project ideas, quotes, mykus, coloring and drawing, stuff glued in…this is the junk journal section.  Of course, all the sections are junk journalish to some degree. 

3.   I found an excellent deal on the LUMIX GX8.  I am excited about this new plaything.
