Happiness Project: June Action

balls-272409_640June arrives in glorious fashion–I’m enjoying a sunny, warm (but not hot!) morning. An open window means I can enjoy the birds singing. Their songs sound perfect. But, I know we never reach perfect without practice.

So, for this month, let’s practice. By practicing, you’re focusing on trying, which means you will be comfortable when it feels like it’s wrong. Practicing means you will make mistakes, you will start over, you will need help. Practicing reminds us that life really is about the journey.

Please share your goals about practicing in our comments section, below. And, keep us posted throughout the month in our Happiness Project group.

(Would you like to join our Happiness Project, now in its fourth year? We’d love to have you! Just complete this quick survey and then join our group here. You’ll receive emails from me every month with our new word.)

I began working with family caregivers in 1990 and launched 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.

    Hello, This month I am going to practice the art of refraining. What do I mean by, “The Art of Refraining? Good question, it means I will practice not rolling my eyes, or making those sounds we all make when we’re not suppose to or talking under my breath which I’ve done once or twice. I would also like to practice the art of, “Asking Questions.” These are both not that hard to practice or master, I just really need to do it.

    Thanks Denise for an interesting topic.
