if you’re happy and you know it…

…clap your hands! {I apologize ahead of time if that song gets stuck in your head. ;) }

Well the 40-day Prayer Challenge I’ve been leading is wrapping up in a few days, but thankfully, the habits we’ve begun can continue past the ‘end’ date. It’s helped my prayer time grow, and I’m so appreciative for that.

I am choosing HappinessSo a few days ago I also got involved in an endeavor that has been pretty interesting so far. Happify.com is a new site based on the concept that you can make conscious, intentional decisions each day to choose happiness. You can savor moments, be thankful for what you have and are, aspire to do better, and give when you have the chance. {Among other things.}

Honestly, at first I thought it was only going to add to my daily ‘to-do’ list, but I’ve found that it’s actually helped me become aware of moments I might have otherwise not paid attention to – causing me to enjoy them in a more intentional way.

Isn’t that what life is all about – making conscious, intentional decisions to choose how you’re going to handle what has come your way? And if something has shown up on your path that you wouldn’t have normally chosen, trust that God is directing your steps, and He knows just what to do to get you where you need to be.

In the meantime…let’s start enjoying our moments when they show up.

Let’s savor them.
Let’s be thankful for them.
And then let’s share them.

Because who knows when your story or ‘moment’ just might be what someone else needs to get up and try again.

So for today, why not make a conscious, intentional decision to be happy.

You’ll be glad you did. {Pardon the pun.}
