It Was There All The Time

Buried in our subconscious there are many forgotten moments of pure joy, exhilarating experiences, the kind of laughter that leaves you weak at the knees, special magical moments of wonder and awe.  Because of our busy lives and the predominance we have to ponder on the negative, ‘what if this happens, I can’t do that because etc’,  these wonderful experiences are often buried. During the past couple of weeks, when asked, what is your favourite song, book or film, I have had to really think hard as its so long since I really thought or remembered what being truly at peace and happy is like in every day life. The tips and research of the HH programme has re awakened memories, made me smile and even found myself singing for no reason at all. (The sale of ear plugs has just risen.)

So now to add to my sneaky meditation sessions in my lunch hour, I will visualise a new me. 6 inches taller, thick wavy hair, … Well one can dream…

About the Author:

"Hi I’m Dena. I have worked in the same company for many years in a variety of roles and am now in a dual role of health and safety and assistant to the company secretary. I have been interested in holistic therapies for many years, and as I am qualified to practise in a few, it would be good to re-engage again with the calm and balance that they bring, and of course to increase my everyday Happyness! When I saw on Sally’s email asking for Happynesshubbers I thought what a good idea, but knowing me thought that I wouldn’t be able to commit to looking at all the emails for three weeks and finding time to go online and blog as I haven’t done it before. I know it only takes a few moments of the day, as I did dip in and out last time, and enjoyed the ones I looked at. My son is Paul, another Happynesshub Hero, and he asked me about becoming a Happynesshub Hero too – I surprised myself when I said yes! I’m excited to have the possibility of committing to start this exciting journey and make it part of my everyday life."

    Ha ha ha, Dena. This is really lovely. It makes my heart sing thinking of you singing – at least the sale of ear plugs is helping the economy 😉
    It’s wonderful knowing the all of my pursuing you to think of you Happy things – on top of the rest – has re-awakened those memories and senses.
    Good luck with the visualisation – don’t forget to think of your best POSSIBLE self and WRITE IT DOWN. It’s the act of writing that cements the goals and helps motivate you to actually achieve the vision. Maybe you’ll be teetering in heels soon with luscious hair extensions?? x

    Off to the wig shop and digging out the killer heels, wonder if they will still fit! I’ll probably fall over and do myself a mischief.

    Hope you’ll be wearing them to the Heroes summer BBQ Dena! This is delightful. A bit like Matt’s poem it should become one of our HH staple bits of media – thank you Dena for you special and inspiring contributions! x
