Not so great on my happiness challenge

My goal was to walk and/or dance at least four times / week. These are both activities I often don't make the time for, but they make me feel happy - or at least more peaceful - when I do.

I probably met my goal one week out of the four. The worst I did was probably one walk per week. Mostly I took those walks when I most needed them, so it wasn't an all out failure. Plus, I do pamper myself in other ways, such as a few squares of dark chocolate when I really need them.

Given that September was such a stressful month with all the IVF stuff, I think I was pretty happy. At least I had many happy moments even if other moments were very difficult.

I am hopeful the next challenge - meditation 10 minutes / day - will be a goal I meet.

Do you know how much I'd enjoy taking a walk with you while we ate dark chocolate?

Mmmmmm. On both counts.

Wouldn't be too hard on yourself since we find happiness sometimes in the places we least expect it.

P.S. I'm a milk chocolate girl myself. ;-)

A walk together sounds wonderful, Lori. The next time we are in the same state, let's make it a date.

PJ- Too true and good to be reminded.

If the ultimate goal is to increase your the amount of happiness in your life, it certainly sounds like you accomplished that, despite the stress. Good luck with the meditation.
