About this time last year, I posted this topic in the Girl's Club, asking everyone what their To-Do list was for personal happiness. Seeing as I am ramming positivity down people's throats, this is a great topic to also share in general! :D Being happy doesn't just happen. You have to put effort in to it. A huge mistake many people make is assuming that they can only be happy if someone else gives it to them. Nobody can give you happiness but you! What is your to-do list for making yourself happy? This particular list must be 100% about YOU. So there are some special requirements: - FIRST. Do not say "I want a girlfriend/boyfriend/husband/wife/etc." No. You do not need another person to make you whole. This is about YOU. Love is an awesome thing to have, but this list is about what you can do for yourself. - SECOND. Do not say "I want a child." See above. - THIRD. Do not say "I want to make someone else happy." No. You deserve your own happiness that is not created by or balancing on the shoulders of another person. - FOURTH. Do not put ANYTHING on your list that involves having another human being help you make this happiness. (IE: getting away from someone, meeting a person, etc.) THIS IS YOU. YOUR TO-DO LIST FOR YOURSELF. TO HELP MAKE YOU A HAPPY AND WHOLE PERSON. What makes you happy? What do you need to do for yourself to help make your life a happy and wonderful and a whole human being? And thus as an example, Diana's NEW personal to-do list! -- I want to read at least one book a month, minimum. I miss reading books and I never seem to make time for it anymore. -- I want to speak a second language fluently. I'd feel smart and fancy, and it would be useful! -- I want to go to bed every night knowing I finished all of my chores and not feel like I am procrastinating my responsibilities. -- I want to see Poets of the Fall in concert. >> -- I would like to have a beach vacation and stay in a fancy-pants hotel! -- I want to write a family cookbook!
