Month Two and My Accomplishments

Starting month two on my 2012-2013 Happiness Project. What a perfect opportunity  to start recognizing my weekly accomplishments. I have to admit I got this idea from one of my all time favorite mentors and have always wanted to incorporate in my own life. I’m also glad to say that my Happiness Project “partner” has decided to join me. Great encouragement for us both!

First things first… Starting our Happiness Project in September was a great idea. As I mentioned before September has always been “that dreaded month” for me. This year it had a much different feel. It was… happier!

Last month we focused on “Having more energy”

1.) Go to bed earlier 2.)Exercise more 3.)Simplify (AKA get rid of stuff, or at least get organized)

The truth be known I did go to bed earlier SOME. I started running again, got a membership at a gym closer to home, and even worked out there a time or two already! I’ll continue to keep these 3 goals in mind as we move into month 2.

October will be to “Improve Relationships” – not just with others but also with my self.

1.)  Give more gold stars (even to myself), 2.) Fight right (this one will be a work in progress – still researching but very excited about it) 3.) Give proof of love through signs of affection (did you know people who hug are happier in general?)

Through my Happiness Project – I’ll be sharing my weekly accomplishments! Keeping me honest as much as showing myself some love; not just for my success but also through my failures!

Last weeks accomplishments:

2 sessions in the gym

ran 2 days

walked 2 days

11 mile bike ride

Taught 2 yoga classes

Finished up my Macroeconomics class

Started my Business Law class

showed a little love with a hair cut

two soccer games – which I truly enjoy and makes me a proud mamma

2 hour meditation class

Dinner with my yoga girl – LOL!

Finally… checked out the sand castles at the beach

To everyone who made their way through all that… thanks for your continued support! I also want to encourage everyone to also start their own Happiness Project! Your always welcome to join in at any time! Until next time…
