I would like to introduce The Happifesto! – this is the Crazy Happy Gorgeous Manifesto of Happy. Or if you like – The Key Activities of Happy People. It’s a mash-up of the best psychology studies, pop-magazine culture and my own little approach to creating a crazy, happy, gorgeous life.
I offer it in the spirit of sharing and reminding. Being happy or creating happy isn’t rocket science. Yet we struggle with the basics all the time. Well I bloody do – don’t you? So at the risk of stating the bleedin’ obvious – I took some time out with my coloured pens and my lovely, big, new drawing pad and I noodled out The Happifesto! This thing might get big before it gets cool and clear so I’m thinking over the next few posts I’ll have a look at each bit of The Happifesto! in some more detail – and start to build a library of materials that we can all use and share to get focus on the big hairy goal of Crazy Happy Gorgeous – which if you twist my arm – I’d tell you was to help women manifest their authentic, wild, beautiful dreams however big or small.
Scratch that! I’m not going to start by making a competition out of who has the best dream. I want you to be happy lovelyone. Crazy gorgeous happy! The most happy you can be without risking some sort of happy blow-out.
For me that means being REAL – authentic, properly honest about what I’m feeling, what I’m doing and how I’m thinking. I need a place to express all of that – and I need to feel connected to myself, to my partner, his kids, my friends and family. I need to do all of this while managing my home, a job and my own physical changes. (I’m a woman of a certain age – and my Neo Vavoom* is upon me.)
For you it will mean something too – some of the time you’ll be yelling YES! That Luli has hit it square on the nose. I feel, think, say EXACTLY the same things she does. Perhaps at other times you’ll wonder if I’m blogging under the influence. It doesn’t matter – just as long as we’re connected. Gosh I’d love it if you’d share what you think and feel – how you are and how you max out the happy in your life.
So here we go then – The Happifesto! according to Miss Luli – feel free to add to it, disagree with it, copy it and share it. Spread the happy out over the globe. Happy people are productive, loving and fulfilled – we don’t breed conflict, meanness or hate. Frankly we need to be more bl00dy vocal about what is important to us. The more effort we put into creating our crazy happy gorgeous life – the more deeply content we will become – the more energy we have to share, the more love we will make and this, loveliest of ones, is the only answer. Lovely LOVE.
