Be Happy

The challenge this week from Passion Planner is “Remember that happiness is a choice. Express your gratitude by writing a thank you note to someone you appreciate every day this week”. So every day this week I am going to write a letter to someone that I am grateful for, there are so many people I am thankful for, so this will be a lot of fun!

With this challenge I also plan to challenge myself to be happy. Happiness is a choice, so I will be doing the best I can to choose to be happy and not let negative situations bring me down. Monday will be the real challenge for me this week because for work I have to go out to my old office and see some people who tend to bring me down. This will be a great time for me to put the challenge into practice though, that’s me trying to look on the bright side of things 😉 haha.

I really do think that life is what you make it. I’ve posted blogs in the past on the power of choice, and this challenge fits right in there with it. We can’t choose how a situation makes us feel, we can only choose how we react to it. So, when we choose to be happy even in difficult situations it makes things easier.


So I pose two challenges to you, write a thank you note to someone every day this week, it can even be just a little post-it note that you leave on someones desk or computer telling them that you are grateful for them. The other challenge I have for you this week, is to choose to be happy, even in those difficult and trying situations.


You are awesome! God knows it and so should you!
