Days 12 – 16 of Happiness Challenge

This undated image released by Copyright Bob Ross Inc./The Joy of Painting, shows the late Bob Ross, host of the PBS series "The Joy of Painting." PBS said Thursday it's posted a video remix with clips from "The Joy of Painting" instructional series, featuring the late Bob Ross. The "Happy Painter" remix is from John Boswell, who created the "Garden of Your Mind" video tribute to Fred Rogers. That mashup of clips from "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" has been viewed nearly 6 million times on YouTube. "The Joy of Painting," still seen in repeats, aired on PBS from 1983 to 1994 with its bushy-haired, mellow-voiced host. Ross died in 1995. (AP Photo/Copyright Bob Ross Inc. ® The Joy of Painting)

Day 12 – Creation day

Create something. It can be artsy fartsy or cooking something, baking, making a baby (tehe!), whatever you are in the mood to create – go to it! Create something fun – something that inspires you.

thank you

Day 13 – Thank you day

Send/give a thank you gift or thank you card to someone today. This can be anyone. Thank anyone for anything, even if it’s someone new at the office you don’t normally talk to – thank them for their presence, their smile, their good energy – even if they don’t seem happy or nice – this will make them feel good and they probably need it. It’s easy to be nice to another kind person. It’s harder to be kind to someone who is or seems mean or stand-offish. But those are the people who especially need our kindness.

baking

Day 14 – Bake or make a happy

Bake cookies or brownies (or fruit/veggie tray if you’re being healthy) or something you think the office or neighbors would like, bring it with you to the office to share, or take a plate to your neighbor’s house (or a Ziploc bag if you think you won’t get your plate back). Or fruit or veggies that you are growing from your own yard or fresh picked flowers from your yard.

Family-Playing-Game-Together

Day 15 – Do something fun day

– something that fills your heart with joy – preferably with family and/or friends, cook out, go to a play, go to a movie, eat out and chat, rent a movie – get take out – and spend the day hanging out with your besties at home, water park, zoo, lunch and the park, roller skating, some sort of social function/party/meet-up – whatever you do, you have to smile, laugh, talk, be silly and have fun!

community

Day 16 – Community day

This can be in person or if you are part of an online community where you can share your authentic self and feel like you are part of a community of like-minded people, a place where you feel accepted or a place where you can help someone in any way, shape or form.

_____

Y’all could do as many of these together on one day as you like or split them all up. Hope you enjoy each one and they make you feel all lit up inside!

Love you!  xoxo
