Meaningful Mondays: Focus on happiness

 

Life has a way of wearing us down sometimes and if you tune  into the news reports they don’t actually life our spirits – don’t they?

So I’ve decided to bring some meaning back into our lives with my Meaningful Mondays.

These will be short, inspiring and motivational posts which I hope will brighten your day and start you week with some positivity.  It might be a quote that I have liked and wanted to share, or an inspiring story that I’ve seen or heard about.  It might be a book review or anything that I thought added meaning to my life.

Today’s thought is about bringing happiness into every day.

Meaningful Mondays:  Focus on happiness

Meaningful Mondays Focus on happiness

Can you take some time today to think about what really makes you happy?  Then focus on ways to incorporate your happiness into each day.

Happiness comes in various forms it might be spending time with your family, enjoying some quiet time reading, travelling, or going for a walk experiencing the fresh air and being surrounded by nature.

Where did you find your happiness today?

I’d love you to join me for Meaningful Mondays so why not subscribe and let’s bring some positive meaning back into the day.

    Love your new focus for Mondays Sue – you are always changing things up. Happiness is so important and an area I’ve learned a lot about in the last couple of years. My life is all about focusing on the positive and looking for the good, being grateful, thankful etc. So much in fact that there is no one thing I could state makes me happy – it’s a combination of all the little things now.

    I love this idea. Starting the week off with something positive. I recommend the book Broadcasting Happiness by Michelle Gielan on this topic.

      Thanks Marcie I will check out Broadcasting Happiness – I love the title. Have a great day and be happy! x

    Great post Sue, I love the idea of starting the week with positivity and happiness. I’m away for a few days in Canberra visiting my daughter and son in law, going for some bike rides, shopping, eating out and enjoying their company. I’m very fortunate!

      Yes it is a new idea for my blog and I think it will be a favourite of mine. Sounds like you are having a great time with your family. Enjoy!

    Monday needs all the help it can get, Sue, so I’m glad to see you are lending your positivity to this maligned day of the week. I look forward to having a reason to get up in the morning on Mondays from now on!

    I spent most of my life putting everyone else before me; now that the children are grown, I sometimes feel at a loss.
    However, it is a time of life when I can be entirely selfish without feeling guilt, so ‘Thank You God’ for the many blessings I’ve received & the wisdom gained along the way.

    • Reply Sue Loncaric March 18, 2017 at 08:56

      So right! You should embrace your new life and never feel guilty – it is now your time! It is hard when the children have grown but it can be very exciting to explore yourself and what you want for the rest of your life. Have a beautiful day. xx

    I like this – a nice positive idea! I often find it hard to feel motivated on Mondays.

    • Reply Sue Loncaric March 18, 2017 at 08:47

      You will have to check in each Monday then for some motivation to start the week! Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

    Ah, this made me think about the song Monday, Monday by The Mamas & The Papas. Thank you Sue for sharing this post at Wednesday AIM Link Party at Grammy’s Grid. I shared it on social media. Hope you get lots of traffic!

    What a great idea and I love that quote! Meaningful/inspirational/profound quotes rock! What’s made me happy today? Being able to go and see our daughter at her cheerleading performance after school : Thanks so much for linking up to #HighlightsofHappy – be great to see you again next week! 🙂 Also popping by from #LovinLifeLinky

      Hi Carol and lovely to meet you. I love watching our grandchildren they bring me happiness. I’m sure your daughter performed well and you were able to share that with her. I’m glad I found your link up and will also visit next week. Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by.

    I like this idea of beginning your week with a positive thought. Watching out for your own happiness is something all mums should think about. I try to do at least a few things everyday that are for me only – a bit of writing, some reading or even watching a spot of TV. Keeps me going through the day. #mg

    • Reply Sue Loncaric March 23, 2017 at 07:54

      Hello I did receive your comment thanks and responded to your other comment. Thanks so much for visiting and have a lovely day.

    Sue this is a great idea. We are about to celebrate Mother’s Day in the UK and my happiness today and this weekend is in spending time with my family and my own mother. #mg

      Happy Mother’s Day Jo, ours in Australia is in May. Sounds like you have a perfect Mother’s day planned so enjoy xx

    Nice positive way to begin the week! LOVE that! I always squeeze in something for me each day, if I don’t I really burn out quickly. #mg

    • Reply Sue Loncaric March 28, 2017 at 09:25

      Thanks Mackenzie! We all need to do something for ourselves each day and I know that isn’t easy if you are busy with a family. Have a great week and enjoy your ‘me time’. x
