Today is Day 28 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: Spontaneous! Don’t plan. Don’t schedule. Just go on the spur of the moment, be crazy, and have fun. Be Happy.
The word “spontaneous” is an adjective. It means:
- Performed or occurring without premeditation or external stimulus: “spontaneous applause“.
- Having a natural, and uninhibited manner.
Some people, myself included, love the security and consistency of a plan. I make lists of everything and then prioritize them and then I follow the list. It’s a great way to get the “most important things” done but I lose a lot of the joy of having a natural, uninhibited manner. So today, to add some happiness to your life, do something spontaneous. Yes–PLAN to be spontaneous! LOL
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.
