Get together with loved ones for a International Happiness Day celebration! (^.^)

It is quality rather than quantity that matters. – Seneca

I am a firm believer and practitioner in quality time, especially concerning the things and people that matter most to me.  I am going for quality time with a few of my favourite people today.  What about you?  Unleash your creativity, permit yourself to be Happy, Happier, Happiest!  Not just for today, but for many many many days to come!

For those following the VIA strengths alignment, this action is in line with Loving and Allowing Oneself to Be Loved.

A Happy you, a Happy life, a Happy work, a Happy family, all this can be yours only if you choose to.

A very Happy International Happiness Day to you!!!

Shanshine smiles and cari saluti!

How did yesterday’s actions go for me?

I am very pleased that my once conscious incompetent actions have evolved into unconscious competent actions!

I was so thrilled and enlightened that I wrote Focus on the positive: It works! A real life story immediately after I had the revelation!  I still remember Napoleon Hill’s words in Think and Grow Rich, along the lines of we cannot afford the luxury of a single negative thought.  I would like to add,

We have the luxury of infinite positive thoughts! – Yip Pei Shan

Notice the optimistic thinking in action!  Did it take a lot of time and effort to do so?  No.  Initially, it took a lot of time and effort.  With continuous usage and a laser beam focus, it became a habit.  Once it becomes a habit, it’s ingrained into your system.  Need support with this?  Contact me.

How did yesterday’s actions go for me?

I brought my own ‘sunshine’ with me wherever I went!  There were some hiccups along the way, which I could have let it spoil my day.  However, I chose to let things go.  Is it really that important to me?  Is it necessary for me to get negative over the issues?  These were a couple of questions I asked myself.  The answer was ‘no’ to both of them, consequently choosing to let them go and sustain my Happy disposition.

What would I do if the answer was ‘yes’?  I would still choose to let them go.  It does not mean I make light of important issues.  I would choose to acknowledge the negativities and find a solution to the issue(s) at hand.  Acknowledging does not mean wallowing in it.  It just means a recognition and an acceptance.

Moreover, I had the pleasure of lovely company yesterday evening, which was a sweet ending to another day!

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine – Anthony J. D’Angelo

Some, if not many people feel that Happiness is an ephemeral and ‘soft’ concept, especially in corporate terms.  It is not a ‘soft’ thing for softies, but something as essential as life itself.  Do you live to be Happy, or are you Happy to live?  Do you work to be Happy, or are you Happy to work?

Either way, Happiness is a choice we must make for ourselves.  And it is something all of us can have, will have, and must have.  Smile!  Are you shining yet?

Strengths aligned with today’s action include Curiosity/Interest in the World; Love of Learning; and Citizenship/Duty/Teamwork/Loyalty.

As the mastermind behind these Happiness attraction actions, I realise there is so much scope for not only becoming a happier person, but also for becoming a better person!

In the Bible’s book of Mark 4:21-22, “… Is a lamp brought to be put under a basket or under a bed?  Is it not to be set on a lampstand?  For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light.”

These Happiness attraction actions are so good, I must share it with everyone, and not keep it under wraps.  Do you have something to share with people?  Never underestimate the power of what you have and how it can benefit others.  It is definitely more than what you think.

Focusing on the positive was a breeze for me yesterday.  This optimistic mindset did not come overnight.  It took 1.5 years of dedicated attention and efforts to see the fruits of optimism and Happiness.  Strive on to greater heights of optimism and have fun along the way!  Remember you are not alone.  There are countless others who are going the extra mile, including me!  Shanshine on!

Focus ONLY on the GOOD in everyone that you know (^.^)

If you can dream it, you can do it. – Walt Disney

I am a firm believer of focusing on the positive, especially in people and in getting the things that makes you happy.  Even if things do not turn out the way you expect them to, just by looking at things in an optimistic manner, we can feel better and reduce anxiety and stress.  Moreover, we can have a good laugh along the way!

Strengths aligned with today’s action include Perspective; and Hope/Optimism/Future-Mindedness.

Shanshine power!!!  It was a superb Shanday with my loved ones indoors.  I’m not a huge fan of rain, nevertheless, I bravely attempted going outdoors with my loved ones while it was raining, which I retired happily indoors after the rain did not subside!  Looking forward to more sweet Shandays!
