Pause for joy

I used to do this thing I called a daily happy...and then someone who was a good friend said something really cruel about it. And you guessed it I stopped doing it. But lately there have been a few things I've come across that reminded me that the daily happy was a good thing for me, and my family. So two days ago we started it again at supper - and with my sharing it with folks via whatsapp. Only this time I've amended it to add talking about something that wasn't so good in your day - we all need to work on our emotional vocab. 

It's also helping K get that having a sad moment is okay...he's had a lot of just feeling down moments lately, and taking stock of what's good and what's adding to the down moment is a good thing for him to start learning. He loves the happy part, and will list many things and ask what's all our things.

For some more reasons to add to your pausing for joy/gratitude check out this short Vlogbrothers video

And on the local front Nikki wrote a great post about it too.
