I was doing my library thing (see explanation in other post), and I found this sweet little book called The Happy Life Checklist by Amy Spencer.
She talks about realizing that a key to happiness is balance. “You know why a piano chord sounds so beautiful?” she writes. “Because it’s not just one beautiful note; it’s some high notes mixed with some low.” As a cultivator of balance, I like this a lot.
I decided to start making my own happy life checklist.
-Have a campfire.
-Plant herbs by the house.
-Browse some cookbooks.
-Use the happy jar every night at dinner.
-Savor every bite of food.
-Mindful eating, mindful walking, mindful living.
-Give each day a theme word.
-Use your first five minutes wisely.
This is all I’ve got for now. But I hope I spend the rest of my year (and life) updating this post. ❤
