List of the Week: List the people who make you feel happy.
WEEKLY LIST TIME!
First, jot down people that come to your mind right away. Then, I suggest you have a look back on your list of what makes you happy; review each of these and decide if any of them are connected to an individual.
Remember, quality not quantity!!
Although I did not write a post about the week seven, eight, and nine weekly reflection, it doesn’t mean I didn’t do them – in fact, I managed to reflect on them a lot and was able to really write out my thoughts, which was great.
I’m sorry for not updating you on the three weeks lists earlier, but here they are now, so reflect away!
Week Seven: List the greatest compliments and encouragements you have ever been given.
Week Eight: List the things that you like to do that don’t involve technology.
Week Nine: List all of the little things that happened today that brought you joy.
List of the Week: List the things from your past and present that feel like blockades in the way of happiness.
Following from last weeks list, from listing the best choices you have made in your life so far, now it’s time to think about things that block you from achieving your happiness.
This week’s list may be harder or easier, dependng on how you want to define your happiness. I do believe that there can be two sides to this list, because we all want our happiness to depend on feelings and emotions, but sometimes, the materialistic items get in the way.
I can’t argue that a nice purchase doesn’t boost your mood a little bit, but in the long run, we need to find other “things” that can bring this happiness to us.
List of the week: List the best choices you have made in your life so far.
Well this is definitely one of the more positive lists throughout this journal. Reflecting and analyzing on the better choices throughout your life is definitely more fun.
Daily we make choices; both simple and harder ones. We definitely don’t have it in us to remember all of these choices, but we do remember the ones that meant something great than a lunch choice.
These are the choices you want to write down in this journal for your week five list! Reflect back on the choices that made you happy, that made others happy, pull from memories you’ve made.
List of the Week: List the things that get you out of your head
This week, its time to get ahead of your own brain – and we all know that our brains are fierce creatures that can alter and rule our lives. Listing the items that get you out of your head will help you to work through future things that may come up.
So far, I don’t think this is my favourite list to make, but it’s definitely a good excercise and I’m sure I’ll be pondering the list during the week often.
List of the Week: List things that you are really good at
Making a list of things you think you are good at, might seem a bit conceited at first, but in reality, it’s helps you realize your strengths and builds you character. Thinking about things that you are good at forces you to think about the things you enjoy – because we all believe we are good at things we like; that’s why we like them.
Personally, I think this will be a fun list to complete – it will definitely bring out the positive aspects of your life. I’m sure, that since you will be spending a week thinking about this list, you will be able to come up with many things that you are good at; many of which you don’t think about on a regular basis.
I’m even thinking that you may find things you are good at that you don’t do often, but may start doing after you have this realization.
