This afternoon while I was on the elliptical I was watching the Dr. Oz show. Today’s show was talking about people who are “Debbie Downer’s” and how he was going to help this women get happier in just 28 days. The women talked about the relationships that she has lost and that she really believes that the glass is half full. It got me thinking, am I “Debbie Downer” AKA DD. I do know of some DDs and yes I have distanced myself from them because just didn’t want to get caught in their negativity cycle. But have people distanced themselves from me because I’m a DD. God I hope not.
Dr. Oz said he could make you happier in just 28 days. So, I’m going to the challenge and prove to myself that I am not a DD.
Week 1 goes like this. Keep a happiness journal. So for the next week I will be updating you with my happiness journal. Each I am going to find 3 things to be happy about. They don’t need to be huge monumental things, but things that make me smile and feel good inside. I will admit there will probably be some crazy outrageous things, but hey that’s me.
- I was surprised to learn today that their was a 2 hour episode of 24 on and I get to watch it with my husband
- it was sunny and in the 70s and I got where a light jacket without a hat or gloves — here in New England we call this a heat wave.
- my client Susan lost 2 pounds and the importance of food choices are starting to click in.
- Bonus — just started reading a great new book “Little Earthquakes” (more fluff than mind filling), but the first few chapters have made me smile.
That is what I am happy about today.
