I promised that each Sunday I would provide a photo of a beautiful sunset, or a park bench, since park benches are great places to sit down, and take a few minutes to think about your happiness list.
Sit outside at sunset, and you have something to be thankful for right away. Sunsets are so calming, But, you'll never get the same one, even if you sit on the same bench every night. Read the National Geographic article Red Sky at Night: The Science of Sunsets for an excellent explanation why!
Others things to be thankful for? Breathing and walking if you ask one of my older relatives! Top of my list--family and friends. One of my Spiritual Sundays' posts last summer was Traveling and Blogging Make Me Happy. When I reread it today, I was surprised to find out that my answer to the first question in the blog is coming true this week! (You have to click to find out!)
Now, I don't just watch sunsets in Greece. I took the photo on the right in Utrecht in the Netherlands, and got a bonus--a small, crisp white sliver of a moon in the sky!
It's not too late! Watch the sunset tonight. Add a little bit more happiness to your life. While watching, make a mental note of at least three things or people that you are thankful for today!
Then, tomorrow, repeat the process!!
Where have you watched your most favorite sunset?
