Q - Quiz
Question #1: Are you happy with your life?
A: Yes, most of the time.
Question #2: What makes you happy about it?
A: My family, my dear friends, my sweet little house and garden, my darling dogs, space in my life to choose to do things that interest me like exploring with a camera, watercolor painting, traveling, cooking and eating, getting involved in things I care about.... I could go on.
Question #3: What can you change to make your life better?
A: I can remind myself to say no to the things that I take on out of a sense of obligation so as to leave more time for things that bring me joy. (This includes saying no to any more big renovation projects!)
I woke up this morning stressing about all the things I have to get done in the next month--and it's a busy one. I even started to feel sorry for myself because there's so much to do. But spending just a few minutes asking myself these questions has given me back my positive perspective on life.
Do you have a few moments to take the quiz?
