Thought for the day
“Anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.”
― Arthur Roche
This is so true. Often we have one thing to worry about and a dozen that are going well. And what do we do? We concentrate of thinking about the worrisome thing, and eventually it is all we see. All the good things in life vanish from our minds because our mind can only concentrate on one thing at a time. And a thought we keep thinking tends to turn into what we perceive as truth. Suddenly that one worrisome thing has turned our whole world into a its likeness. Nothing feels good anymore. And getting out of that spiral of negative feelings takes some doing… So do yourself a favour and concentrate on the good things too. Take the habit of writing done one good thing that happened in your day. Every day. Use a notebook, your calendar, your mobile phone. Anything. Just write it down. And read later what you have written. You’d be surprised to see how many wonderful, joyful things you have in your life. It’s just a question of learning to notice them.
Picture of the day
Write down the positive things in your day, and let them lift your spirits
I thought maybe people would like to see some drawings for a change. So I created this little happy character. As you may have noticed from my previous emails, spring has arrived here and I especially like the beauty of cherry trees in full bloom. So no surprise they made it into this little picture as well 🙂
What do you call a droid that takes the long way around?
Do you have a funny story you would like to see published in this letter? An event, what someone said? If so, send me your funny story in an email
(I especially love the funny things children say!).
My email for this is daily email is
Strawberries on the beach
We went to the seaside for a picnic today – the first really warm spring day, and we could safely sit on the beach, alone. Sitting in the warm sun. listening to the waves and eating sushi and strawberries… Definitely something to write about in my Happiness Journal.
What made you happy today? Send a note and tell, if you wish to share your little happy moment with others.
