Bring Your Own Flowers

I am big on the idea of doing happy for ourselves not waiting around for someone else to make you happy.  So my suggestion for today is go out and buy yourself some little thing that would make you happy today.  For me, I might go for a ceramic bird that costs $4.00.  Maybe you would go for something sweet to eat.  A magazine your never buy.  How about a vase full of roses?  Sit them on your desk and enjoy their beauty and scent.

Here is an idea to increase the happiness. Start pulling stems from that bouquet and giving them to others.  The woman that just had to smell them when she checked you out.  That little girl crying in the parking lot. The elderly lady at the bus stop.  The door man.  A co-worker.  Watch your joy increase with every stem given away.

Of course, you can do this with more budget friendly flowers or donuts.  You get the picture.  Go make yourself happy.  If you wish, double your pleasure at little or no extra cost by putting a smile on your face and another.

Have A Happy Day!
