Feeling a bit blue . . .#OrganicHolidayHappiness Challenge

This time of year is so tough for me . . . can’t stop feeling blue. Does this ever happen to you?

I think I will start a personal challenge on my blog beginning today and counting down until the New Year. Every day from now until January 1, 2013 I am going to post at least one thing that makes me happy. It will be a picture, an idea, something I love . . . anything to stay positive.. Please feel free to join in by sharing your own happiness no matter how big or how small and feel free to pass on our ideas for getting over the blues.

  1. Good luck with your challenge. I’m tempted to join you but I think I’ve already committed to too much between now the end of the year 🙂 Love the Gandhi quote!

    1. This time of year can be so busy Jill! I’m just working on maintaining a positive outlook on things. Glad you stopped by m blog and hope you will stop in again 🙂

  2. Do you think it’s the weather that affects you? Or did something sad happen in this season when you were younger? I love your plan to rewire your winter blues as you deserve to be happy, content, and well!

    1. It is mostly due to the weather I think although definitely something I struggle with 🙁 Where I live it can be very gray and the days are super short at this time of year. Seasonal Affective Disorder is a big problem for people here. Thanks for checking in Kymberly. Here’s to happiness and good health.

  3. My children also make me happy. Going for walks by myself and listening to my favorite songs on my iPod also makes me happy.

    1. I too love listening to my favorite songs, especially in the car. Turning up the volume and singing along at the top of my lungs 🙂

  4. To paraphrase John Muir, We all need places to play in and to pray in, we all need beauty as well as bread. Playing, prayer, beauty, and bread mean different things to each of us, but I doubt that any of us deny the value of these ideas for ensuring our sanity and health. I am happiest when I am actively and consciously seeking these ideals in our wild places. What a Wonderful Blog!

  5. While I love the holiday season, I get down as well, I think mostly because of the gray weather. I was just saying to my husband today that we needed to move somewhere where there’s sunshine all the time. The smiling faces on your kids and those on my silly kids definitely makes me happy.
