So originally, my plan for my year of happy was pretty vague. Spread ashes. be happy.
I have realized that maybe I need to be more organized about this whole thing, So I have divided my plan into at least three phases.
1. Conscious Happiness
This will occur during the time leading up to the end of school (may 19th). I only have two weeks left, but it is becoming increasingly more difficult to try to remain happy. This phase involves
-Less bitching at work
-Trying to stay out of mean work gossip
-generally just trying to be in a better mood
-helping Bobby find an apartment
-Starting to get out of the house more
This begins on my first days off this summer. I know already that I will be a new woman as soon as the school year ends, but i want to make a more conscious effort. This involves:
-Prepping to wear my new bikini
-Reducing the amount of crap I own
-meditating again, possibly attending satsang or an RSSB event.
-Finally cleaning my house
-Finishing my sewing project
-Planning Nicole’s birthday
3. Fun, Joy, Love
This phase begins on my 21st birthday, when I need to take some time for me. This may include a bit of irresponsibility, but necessary irresponsibility. This includes
-My 21st birthday party(which has yet to be planned)
-My vacation to Barcelona
-My first night out with coworkers
-The rest of summer!
-Summer romance? We shall see.
