What Bhutan Can Teach Us About Happiness

 

 

It has been over ten years since I retired from full-time practice and spent three months volunteering and traveling in Southeast Asia. One of the best parts of my trip was spending time in the remote Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. It was their monarch who defined the concept of Gross National Happiness (GNH) to measure quality of life. And Bhutan is the only country in the world that puts happiness and general well-being at the heart…

Hi! How do you do?

Pleased to meet you!



I'm just your common fade-in-the-wall mom

Trying to get out of my daily dump

Everyday Life is ever so exciting

Cooking, cleaning and screaming



Motherhood is such a roller coaster

It just goes on for ... Forever ...

My darling kids regularly drive me up a wall

Turning me into a crazy Neanderthal

Academic school pressure is a teensy, mere tip

The iceberg has to be the emotional angst… Continue

A Thought on Happiness

This past year or two I've been thinking a lot about religion and spirituality. Matter of fact, lately I've been dreaming of listening in on a theoretic "end of the world" forum-of-world-thought. Well, I kind of just made that name up. But you get the idea. I want to sit down and listen to everyone who has a vision of all this massive change taking place worldwide and simply hear dialogue. It's the English major in me. I want all the colorful characters, the momentous stories. I want to line… Continue

Gratitude: Yes, Folding Laundry Makes Me Happy

It happened again today: I caught myself feeling really happy while folding laundry.

It’s such an odd thing because I don’t particularly like folding laundry. Well, it’s not folding the laundry that makes me happy — somehow, looking at our clothes always makes me feel really grateful for all the things I have in my life.

Divorcing & Single Parents Finding Happiness

Wake up every morning and know for a fact that it was going to be a beautiful day. Happiness is a choice and when it is chosen, it is infectious to all of those around you. It is helpful to write yourself a few affirmations and sit it next to the bed so that it is the first thing you see when you wake up. Below, I have listed a few of my personal affirmations:

find your own happiness

I have been slowly working through my 100 ways to be happy list. The original list that I found is HERE

and I carry it around with me all the time. I take it with me so I can

ponder over what I want to focus on and then work out how I can plan

activities and adventures into our family life.



Recently, as I have been pouring over this list I have learnt that to be

happy I need to… Continue

Happiness Is...

Lately I have been thinking about happiness, probably because I am happy. Finally. For a long time I haven’t been happy. There was little joy in my life, I rarely laughed, and I saw the negative more than I saw the positive.… Continue

What a Difference a Year Makes

A year ago, we lived in an upper, upper middle class neighborhood that required dodging golf carts as you drove home from the grocery store. Houses were really

big and really poorly built, but it just wasn’t a small, well built kind of

neighborhood. This was the type of

neighborhood that gave out large candy bars for Halloween, not the little

bite-size bars the rest of the world gives out.yes""> And most of the kids in the neighborhood…

10 Ways to Feel Better

Everyday the friendly security guard in my building greets me with a

huge smile and asks me how I'm doing that day. Today, I considered

saying (with an equally huge smile) "Barely holding back the tears! And

how are you?!" Somehow I found a way to resist the urge. I just smiled.

I wonder if he noticed that the smile didn't reach my eyes. I just get

really sad and overwhelmed sometimes. Then I feel guilty for feeling

that way because I am so blessed. When I feel… Continue

A day off. . .

When was the last time you took a day off with your child or children? I took mine today.







I don’t have classes on Thursdays, but Clever Preschooler does.

Although I still am a Stay at Home Mom on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I’ve

been feeling like we never spend the day (just the two of us) together

anymore.







So, I kept him home from Preschool. (I know it sets a bad precedence,

but at 3 and a half does he honestly need to be going to… Continue

5 reasons for being a good "wife"

The word "friend" has been so tainted by frenemies, rotating BFF's and being able to defriend with a click of a mouse that we now need a new term for our closest friends and allies: wives. A Band of Wives is a website for women who are interested in women's issues, proactive, supportive and generally down with making their friendships a priority. www.abandofwives.ning.com

Wedding Bouquet Today we celebrated our three year anniversary. It really feels like it's been much longer than that, in a good way. I think that's when you really know you've found the right person. When all of your memories before them start to feel like they were right there with you.
