Day 297 – Happy Mondays no. 6

Have goals to look forward to

Feeling good about the future is important for our happiness. We all need goals to motivate us and these need to be challenging enough to excite us, but also achievable. If we try to attempt the impossible this brings unnecessary stress.

Choosing ambitious but realistic goals gives our lives direction and brings a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction when we achieve them.

 

Our happiness is not set in stone.  Although our genes influence about 50% of the variation in our personal happiness, our circumstances (like income and environment) affect only about 10%.

As much as 40% is accounted for by our daily activities and the conscious choices we make. So the good news is that our actions really can make a difference.  So tomorrow, wake up and start living your dream………

My main dream has to wait until the summer unfortunately, but it will be so worth it -> off with the kids all summer in Brittany, now that’s worth dreaming about!!  Night night!

Happiness is a journey, not a destination.

So work like you don’t need money,

Love like you’ve never been hurt

And, dance like no one is watching!!
