Noticing the things that make me happy often and making a place for them in my memory I think will be key. I want to rewire neural pathways. I want to create and develop happier habits for myself.
Yesterday I the superhero found the ending credits song for the cartoon Adventure Time on youtube.
Music can quickly affect ones mood. I am loving this song today.
Geeky sciency stuff and especially Vi Hart, make me happy too. October is the month of the flexagon. I am going to try and make a hexaflexagon later today!
Seeing those colors flip round and round and the triangles and the flexy paper. Oh joy!
Certain movies can lift my spirits. I am a Big Lebowski fan and consider myself a Little Lebowski Urban Achiever. Music of course and I like to bake and prepare food too. Above all though I try and remember that taking care of somebody else never fails to make me feel better. Whether its reading books to the spawn or even preparing food for them. Taking a walk in the gorgeous fall weather collecting leaves is right up there on the list too!
What are the things that make you happy? Do you tend to be a positive thinker or negative thinker?
