110 Ways Happiness Is

Today’s Affirmation:
Happiness is a choice and today I choose it!

Back in 1962, famed Peanuts cartoonist Charles M. Schulz penned a New York Times Bestseller titled Happiness is a Warm Puppy Dog. The book featured his cast of Peanuts characters sharing what happiness meant to them.

Today I am doing a collaborative blog. I want to build a list of reminders of where happiness can be found to refer to or refer friends to on tough days.

Saturday I began asking friends and followers on Twitter to finish the following phrase. Happiness is… As you are about to read, I have some of the wisest, most insightful, happiest followers anywhere.

This is a great exercise for anyone. It gets you thinking of all the things that make you happy. I would love to add your version too. Leave a comment and I will add it to the main blog.

Stay inspired!

Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.

  1. Hi Ray!
    I loved this post and reading all of the beautiful responses from your friends and followers. I loved it so much that I wrote about it on one of my blogs and linked to yours. Check it out at: http://polkadotsarepretty.blogspot.com/2010/03/seeking-happiness.html . This is a fairly new blog of mine that does not get the attention that I would like to give it, but it is my effort to focus on some more positive in life. Hope you like the post!
