IMG_1072What makes you happy? What can bring a smile to your face at just the very memory of it? As a new year is welcomed, and new year’s resolutions fall by the wayside within a few days, which often happens to me, consider making a resolution to write something every day or at least once a week a list of what makes you happy. I had a teacher who gave me a book with thousands of things to be happy about in case I couldn’t make up my own.

And sometimes it is hard to think of something. It can even feel impossible at times. So, if you create a list at the beginning of the year, it may be easier to find something if a difficult time comes.

Is there a certain scripture passage that makes you happy? Maybe take a look through the bible and collect some passages that bring you strength and peace. Perhaps even keep the list inside your bible.

Feel free to share what makes you happy and give others some ideas!
