Today is Day 16 of Happiness Month and it will be continuing all month long. This all started at the Secret Society of Happy People and if you want to pop over there and become an Amused Member, you can get a Free 31 Types of Happiness poster. As you can tell by my daily #HappinessHappens tweets and Facebook posts, I’ve been a member for a long, long time!

Today, to add happiness to your life:  Hopeful!  Things may not be great right now but what do you hope for? Do you have hopes and dreams? What do you hope for in your marriage and family? In your job and home?  The word “hopeful” is both an adjective and a noun.  As an adjective, it would describe how we think or feel, and the word “hopeful” means:

  • Feeling or inspiring optimism about a future event.

As a noun, it would be used as a way to name something–you might say “S/He is a presidential hopeful.”  Used as a noun, the word “hopeful” means:

  • A person likely or hoping to succeed

As you are dealing with the fallout of infidelity in your marriage, do you sometimes feel feelings of optimism about the future?  Do you think your life will go on and you will be happy again one day?  Do you inspire your spouse to feel that the future may be okay and your marriage may grow?  Does you behavior give your spouse reason to have hope?  What about being a “hopeful”?  Are you a reconciliation hopeful?  Do you come across like a person who EXPECTS to succeed at working through this and building a more loving, happy marriage?

Over the next days, we’ll be going over all 31 ways to Add Happiness Every Day. You know too often I hear young people say “He doesn’t make me happy” or “I wish she would make me happy” but you know what? Happiness is not something that someone else “makes” you feel. You make choices in your life that can affect your happiness….and ultimately you CHOOSE whether to be happy every day or not. You can also choose to do things that would add happiness to your life every single today.
