Week #155 – Summer Fun List: SPREAD HAPPYNESS (and start with yourself first!)

Greetings, All — and Happy Friday!!!

We’ve been counting down the Fridays to Labor Day Weekend with some short “Summer Fun” suggestions.  Because —  as I’ve said each week — while most adults are sure to plan their kids’ summer fun, they often overlook their own!

And here we are!  It’s Labor Day Weekend!

Do you know where your fun went?  😉

Now, before you tell me all the things that happened that STOPPED you from having fun this summer…I want you to know I understand.  We’ve had deadlines, drama, distractions, diagnosis, car troubles, work, travel, overwhelming heat, places to work, and bills to pay.

But we cannot expect Happyness to come to us.

It is an inside job first.

Labor Day Weekend marks the “unofficial” end of summer.  I hear many people say “Where did the summer go?!” and “It seems like just yesterday it was Memorial Day!”

But there are some who’ve racked up memories and stored away their summer fun for years to come…

…and others who are still pressing forward to scratch things off their summer bucket lists and squeeze every last drop out of the Summer of 2017!

Which one are you?  Which do you want to be?

There’s still time!

Your Happyness Challenge for the Week Ahead: Spread Happyness (and start with yourself first)!!!  A long weekend awaits (and a possibly rainy one on the East Coast).  Is there something you wanted to do this summer that you haven’t gotten to yet?  Is there a project or day trip or promise that you made that’s nagging at you?  Make it a point to put yourself first and complete something FOR YOU this week.  We’re seeing reminders all the time of what’s truly important in this life…don’t put yourself off one more day!

And in case you need a few ideas, here’s a recap of this year’s Summer Fun List:

    I must write with tail between my legs this was the worse summer ever. So, was it the weather? Lack of resources or friend? A blank bucket list? No! I allowed complacency, fear, regrets, loneliness to hold me tight. Perhaps several attempts to take flying lessons failed due to rain or visits by DJT preventing me from my lesson set me back. But, I KNOW that is not the total truth. So, tonight I visited a friend, planned a trip, and will spend holiday weekend doing what I want even though not certain what I want.

      Thanks so much for continuing to follow along, Anne. It takes great courage to face what is holding us back. As someone said once, “the only way out is through.” Keep mining for those gems! A new year has begun!
