7 Habits of a HAPPY Household – Kick-off Video!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It’s June 1st! The first day into a new series titled, “7 Habits of a Happy Household!” And here’s why I am so excited about this …

Not to start us off on too much of a negative note – but when I look around, when I run errands, as I buzz into Kroger, go for a run, shop at a local strip mall … I don’t see very many happy folks. Truly happy, that is. I just don’t see very many smiles or sunny dispositions. Instead, I have noticed – seriousness – empty eyes – downcast faces – no sounds of laughter – and a few with short wicks.

As I was preparing this series, I watched the official “Happy” music video, and although we may not get to see people dancing all day long because they choose happy, (can you imagine if we did), there is still something about it that is so inspiring!

Because I’m happy” are actually 3 powerful words … and y’all, we get to discover just how powerful in this series!!

Oh, let’s just have some spontaneous fun, ok? And start our new series with HAPPY cranked up loud!! If you are at work, turn it up! See what happens!! If you’re at home, play it loud! Dance with your kiddos! Blare it in the car with the windows down!  I’m telling you, with this series, we’re going to have soooooome kind of FUN, so … … LET THE PARTY START!!!

One of the lyrics in that song is this:

Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do”

Happiness IS the truth – and we are going to discover 7 of those truths in this series!!

In this one kick-off video, I share with you just why those lyrics can actually have a very profound meaning in our life as we choose happy, as we walk happy, as we ask for and seek happy!!

Happy is a choice! And in this one series, we are going to discover some habits (practical and doable habits) that form a spirit of happy that … empowers and enriches our life!

A happy that is not mustered up, but is magnified by our habits.

A happy that is not conjured up, but is created by daily decisions.

    Woo Hoo! Loving this already! Can’t wait to dive in to the meat of this series. I can say this….It must be meant for me to participate in this series. Got up to a computer that was suppose to have been upgraded during the night only to find it didn’t start it’s upgrading until I touched it this morning at 5:00am. I was bummed because I wanted to start the series this morning as soon as I had gotten everyone out the door and headed for work. Finally saw where it was finished upgrading and was gonna sit down and hop on here only to find I had steps to take to get everything up and running. Got that done, and the washer stopped so I had to hang some clothes to dry before I could start. As I was hanging the clothes up, I thought, “God this series must really be something I need because everything is trying to stop me from doing it today.” So I know it’s gonna be good and I’m gonna glean a lot from it! Love your freshness and excitement!
