Happiness Project: June

In June, our action word for our Caregiving Happiness Project is buy.

Buy? Yep, buy. Buying can be about money it also can be about giving to yourself.

For me, I’m going buy:

1. More time in my day for activities I enjoy.

What about you? What will you buy in June? Please share your goals for June in our comments, below.

(Would you like to join our Happiness Project, now closing its second year? We’d love to have you! Just go here to join.)

About Denise Brown

I began working with family caregivers in 1990 and launched CareGiving.com in 1996 to help and support them. Through my blog, I share words of comfort and offer coping strategies and tips. I also write opinion pieces about recent research, community programs and media coverage of caregiving issues. I've written several caregiving books, including "The Caregiving Years, Six Stages to a Meaningful Journey," "Take Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers" and "After Caregiving Ends, A Guide to Beginning Again." You can purchase my books and schedule a coaching call with me in our store.

    I swear you must have some spiritual power that lets you see whats going on telepathicly. Just today I fullfilled this by buying a new airconditioner for a house we no longer use and can not sell.

    It’s starting to look like this years Summer adventure is going to be severly limited.

    I think tomorrow I’ll do something risky and go to the train show down in Melbourne. It’s risky because I never walk out of these shows without spending a lot of money, which I really shouldn’t be doing at this point.

    Ok Today’s Disrupt theme is to do something risky and the June Happiness word is to buy something. I’ve almost convinced my self to meet these goals I should go down to the Train Show. But if I do that I’d miss playing in the chatroom during Denise’s Table Talk Radio Show. I’m kinda addicted to listening to her smiling voice and Today her guest is Dana who cares for her husband Micheal. That sounds like a great show. If you’ve read Dana’s posts you just know there’s a lot of love in that home.

    Decisions, decisions, what to do, what to do.

      Well… You can play with us tomorrow during Solitaire Showdown and during our chat on Twitter. You also can listen to today’s show on the podcast. We’ll be here for you tomorrow. :) Will the train show?

      I can’t listen to most of the shows live, so I download the podcasts to my iPod. If you don’t have one, look into an iPod. You’ll love having Denise with you when ever you want!

    I will “buy” some sanity time as we, Awesome Hubby & I have already booked a motel for a wedding with family from Arizona, 5 hours away at the end of June! Since the weekend goes into July, I’ll share that we’ve made all the arrangements to spend time at the beach in our camping trailer with Arizona family some of whom haven’t seen the ocean before! I am excited to be able to share that and my gifts of hospitality which have been stifled in my caregiving role!

    Almost forgot about the two nights I booked by the ocean in the middle of June that my sister said she can’t go with me. . . I may do it by myself – AH can’t take anymore time off or I can bless someone else to go with me! I love being off for the summer which will end too soon, Aug. 2nd!

    Okay, so we’re almost half-way through the month and I haven’t had a good answer to this. Until today. My son is really trying to convince me to walk in our city’s 5K next month, but I’d really like to be able to run it. Notice I didn’t say that I’d like to run it, but that I’d like to be able to. A difference! So today, I told myself that if I can find a pair of running shoes (I need a new pair for walking anyway), on sale at a price I’m willing to pay, I’ll buy them and try, but only TRY to run and see how I do. Today I went to Kohl’s and found a cute (charcoal gray and pink!) pair of running shoes that fit beautifully, were $20 off, and I had a 20% off coupon!

    So, from buying a pair of running shoes, I’m now looking at buying myself some time on the track! :)
