A Happiness Lesson

{from The Power}
It would appear that I'm on a self help/happiness quest lately because I've read The Secret, The Happiness Project, and The Power all within the last two months.  It doesn't take a genius to understand their common message:  

Change your thoughts and you'll change your world; 
Show gratitude and you'll feel happy, 
Feel happy and more happy things will come your way.

So, to show gratitude, these are some things I'm loving right now:

the Flinstones bookshelf in my living room

hearing this song on the radio - even though its in Portuguese

my - only slightly sore - legs that are surviving the 15k training

the company of my trusty iPhone everywhere I go

the endless palm trees I get to see all day long

my new yoga classes

the good laugh I had today when all my employees laughed at me because I told them they couldn't drink alcoholic coffee drinks on the job.

the two rainbows I watched during my evening run - I thought of gold, boyfriend thought of Skittles. 

Be grateful.  It will benefit you in more ways than one!
