Coca-Cola Happiness Machine

Something to FEEL Good About Now!

Are you someone who loves the status quo, or do you welcome unexpected surprises? Check out this Coca-Cola Happiness machine that totally surprizes these students!

I find most of my happiest moments have occurred with very little or no planning. Today the happiness machine lives in me, and I choose to activate mine by generating spontaneity for myself and others. Once you see the joy you can create in the moment you’ll want to generate more of it for yourself and everyone around you.

The truth is that I used to hate change because I was afraid of the unknown. I gave that up once I realized I had very little control over anything except myself and my attitude toward just about everything. Now I actually welcome surprises! I love living in the present moment and with that always comes lots of magically unexpected events and gift.

Here’s what I mean. I suffered from analysis paralysis… Should I do this, what if I don’t do that? In other words over thinking and self-doubt were joy killers for me. Then I learned to trust my instincts more and to go with my heart and my gut rather than my head. Yes, I still think things through, but I no longer dwell in uncertainty. I jump in and play! Once I make a decision I don’t second guess myself I make the best of it. And then if need be I make the better of it along the way, until everything turns out well in the long run.

If uncertainty makes you feel insecure and anxious, why not try looking at change from a different perspective. Greet the unknown with excitement and let spontaneity, growth and expansion allow you to feel totally alive. I think you’ll find a lot more to enjoy. Practice until you become a happiness producing machine!

What’s something in your life right now that’s weighing you down? Try this. Write it down on a piece of paper, read it a couple of times and then destroy it. That’s right! Rip up that paper, burn it or flush it. It no longer exists now for you. Instead, you have the opportunity to create something completely new.
Take that same situation and generate a happy perspective and a bright outcome. That’s what it means to become your own self-generating happiness machine.
Keep this up everyday and I promise you’ll get really good at it. Enjoy!

You Won’t Believe The Gratitude Dance

You Won’t Believe The Gratitude Dance

Today’s BrightSpot!

Feeling less than joyful today? 

Take a look at how one man’s dream to create joy has already touched millions of lives. You Won’t Believe The Gratitude Dance! He has even recruited a sponsor to fund his project! Think about what you could create that would spread joy, to one person or to many. Remember that his dance began with baby steps and now look how great a dancer he is…..

This man and his dance inspire me to get up and dance, in other words to be an active participant not a bystander in life. He reminds me to be grateful everyday for everything and everyone that bring goodness into my life.

On the days I am feeling a little down, I know firsthand that the fastest way for me to feel better fast is to focus on something to be grateful for. How blessed am I to have a healthy body that moves without restriction or pain. How appreciative I am to do work I enjoy. Most important I look around at all people who love me who I love in return. That’s a gift I don’t ever take for granted. What is there for you to appreciate right now at this moment?

I know many people who keep a daily gratitude list. Honestly, I’m not one of them. Whether you decide to write down what you’re grateful for or not, I think all that matters is that we acknowledge our blessings to ourselves share our joyful energy with others. That’s contagious!

This video shows that with enough energy and guts, all dreams are possible and each of us can do our part to do something positive for the world. Enjoy!
