I’m on a happiness kick. Happiness always comes easy for me. So easy, I have trouble understanding others unhappiness. My wish would be for the whole world to be a happy place. We would accomplish so much more.

At times we have incidences that cause pain, worry, and distress. Those challenges are easy to work through with a cushion of happiness.

I’ve had life challenges. I’ve been divorced. Lost my grandpa and for a time thought the world would stop. I lost my daddy. My son lives in another state and I miss him. My mom is starting to have Alzheimer’s. There’s still happiness in my heart.

And I’m not sure why or how, but it’s there.

I started a Pinterest board called Happiness. Then started looking for quality pins on happiness. I’m having trouble finding them. Then I thought bucket lists should contain happiness ideas.

But most bucket list ideas miss the boat on happiness.

Things like…

Read an inspiring book.
Relax with a cup of tea.
Watch a movie.
Take yourself out to dinner.

Okay ideas, but what about

Read an inspiring book with a friend or book club.
Take a lonely neighbor out for coffee or tea.
Share a fun movie with a group.
Take yourself out to dinner and secretly pay for someone’s dinner.
