The Happygolitely Project

I realize, a little more each day, how important it is for us all to reach out to each other, to support each other, to show one another we care. We are all part of the same; we are all human; we are stronger together. When we feel united, we feel happier for the sense of connection.

An idea popped into my head to create ‘a little happy’ that could be given/shared. Then it came to me to make this a social experiment. To somehow get these little happys out to people so that they could give them to whomever they felt needed it. I knew some people would give them to friends or family who were having a bad day or needed a boost; but my grander vision was that people would pass these on spontaneously to seeming strangers –

-to anyone who looked like they would benefit from a small gesture, a little happy, that came out of the blue & proved to them someone cared, the Universe cares.

Then I came up with our tag-line:

“A Little Happy Goes a Long Way”

I hope these Little Happys span the globe – to travel over continents & bodies of water, over cultural differences & language barriers, past financial problems & economic crises, through the hands of people who would otherwise remain unconnected.

Please send me your Happy Little Story – tell me how far your Little Happy traveled – tell me who you shared yours with – tell me who shared theirs with you. Let's all create a web of happiness as far as we can imagine.

In happiness, ~girlgolite♥

Making a Happy Saturday

I had a friendly reminder yesterday, from one of my favorite sources of daily inspiration, The Daily Good Dog Quotes. The email was signed off with "Hope you decide to have a good weekend".

Last night, while watching t.v., I cut out what felt like 100s of Happy 'fixins'. If I cut a whole bunch ahead of time, it makes it much easier to make them. This was my preparation for having a good weekend - creating the components for lots of Happys.

Looking at the faces of all the Little Happys I made this morning, I had no choice but to work with a smile on my own face.

However long it takes for Happy Stories to filter back to me no longer matters - at least not as much as it once did. I know these tiny little feltie pieces of my heart are out there and that makes ME happy.

Happy weekend, for sure.
