Its Feel Good Friday!!!!
A Chasing Joy follower of commented on The Road To Joy post stating “We’ve Got It Pretty Damn Good”. Well I totally agree. A large component to happiness, and therefore Joy, is gratitude. Everyone has something to be grateful / thankful for. Focusing on those things will definitely make you feel good. If you are busy counting blessings you have no time for self pity, doubt, complaining, pessimism, or any other activities that distract us from the pursuit of Joy and make us fall prey to Joy Thieves or even worse become Joy Thieves ourselves (remember it’s contagious). So today I will count my blessings (as I find myself doing more and more). I feel good today because:
I am alive and healthy today
I have a job
It is Friday and I get off an hour early
I get to sleep in on the weekend (I need some zzzzzzzs!!)
I was able to help someone this week with resume stuff
I had a new comment on The Road to Joy post (I absolutly love, love, love when you comment)
It is not so hot today, only in the 80s
I have a desire to be grateful
Despite any hardships I have or will face I know I have a much easier life than many, if not most women my age, especially those from other less developed countries.
I have the ability to read and write (I cannot imagine my live without these gifts)
I have a desire to write and think I’m pretty good at it
Of course I feel good because I am Chasing Joy along with you
Feel free to Share your blessings here. What are you feeling good about this Feel Good Friday?
