It truly made me smile when I saw that 40 people have RSVPd “yes” to the Happiness Social on Monday. I truly feel honored. We have a lot of fun at the ‘Socials. I always feel like I am among friends while there. Plus I get …to make up fun and interesting activities and people actually DO them! Finally, I always especially look forward to Happiness Socials just before a class. Inevitably, past students tell the new students what they’re in for. It’s always a great experience.

This is a week to remember those who have fallen to suicide. There are several programs this week to raise awareness and bring hope to those who are still struggling including NAMI and the American Suicide Prevention Foundation. While honestly I hope we reach a point that we do not need to raise awareness about suicide, I am grateful that there is a special time on our calendar to remind us.

They have agreed to host the upcoming class of Happiness 101. They have been very, very kind and hospitable. If they did not host us, we would either have to limit the class to 10 (instead of 22) or would have to charge to afford a space larger than my waiting room. Today I feel very grateful to Broadview University for helping to make Utah happier. 🙂

I so appreciate that voice that says “watch out!” and “Danger!”. It uses past hurts as a guideline, advising me and keeping me out of mischief. I understand that though this voice might seem a bit gruff, it’s intentions are always to keep me safe both physically and emotionally. I recognize that I would probably not survive a day without this vital part of me and today I acknowledge, appreciate and am thankful of this important part of me.

Lisa Cypers Kamen‘s screening of The H-Factor. I really enjoyed seeing the documentary again but the Q&A following was really something special. Lisa commented afterward how she really enjoyed the crowd at the screening and the wonderful discussion. It is such an honor to be working with such a professional.

I love the nihilist that comes to see me. They do not enjoy the present and they have no hope of enjoying the future. I love the nihilist because I know how much better they are going to feel in a relatively short period of time. It is amazing to be instrumental in restoring hope. I am so blessed.

Saw the Mayor Peter Corroon today. He was at the open house for Optum Healthcare, the country and NAMI. One big happy family to help people struggling with mental illness in the Salt Lake valley.

There is something about being completely exhausted and then getting a great night of sleep to satisfy that primal appetite for sleep that feels SO good. Today I luxuriate and bask in the afterglow of an amazing sleep.

Just think of it: that particular sensation was never experience by our ancestors. They never heard of a Slurpee or and Icee. It also stimulates nerve endings you probably didn’t even know you had.

They are an important part of the food chain. They eat spiders. They evidently also serve as a source of entertainment for both my sister-in-law and her dog.
