Happiness Practice: January

The other day I overheard a woman complaining about January. I don’t get it. January is the perfect chance to recharge and relax after the holidays. Staying in, drinking less, focus on cooking at home, eating healthy, reading books, and going to bed early. It’s the perfect month for introverts!

In case you’re wondering what these Happiness Practice posts are each month, last May I decided to set aside a time each month to reflect on what I’m grateful for. Choosing to dwell on the happy moments, whether big or small, resets my focus. Here’s what brought me happiness in January.

Begining the new year with my family at the foot of the mountain watching fireworks go off. Small town magic at it’s best.

Starting off the month with a good read for the 2018 Reading Challenge.

I’m starting to feel more at home here in Denver. Maybe it has to do with the ridiculous amounts of plants I have?

Finding and falling in love with my local library branch in Denver.

  • I've been cracking code all day working on a new website design for a client and yet it is STILL snowing up here in the mountains so I've been building fires all day.

I gotta admit tho - the sound of a crackling fire does me some good. Calms my nerves and helps me get cozy on the couch when cranking out new WordPress websites. All in a day's work. #webdesigner #westcodigital

  • I recently decided to write down my values - the principles that act as a foundation for everything I do. When things get tough, these are the values I re-read, the ones that ground me and steer me in the right direction.

Transparency - Communicate honestly with compassion.

Dedication - Work Hard. Innovate.

Servant’s Heart - Treat others with respect. Follow the golden rule.

Quality - What I do, I do well.

Integrity - Be real.

What values resonate with you?
  • Spent that past week doing things I love. 10/10 would recommend. What makes you happy? Fresh mountain air is definitely top three for me. Photo by @danielle_conyers

  • Moving across the country has taught me a lot. It will show you who your true friends are. Having Danielle and Alex here this past week has reminded me what true connection feels like. Friends who see you, who know you, and who love you. I’m still establishing myself here in Colorado and as an introvert who works from home, it can be tough to find those connections. I’m so thankful for these two and the support they give me. Can’t wait to reunite again soon! But next time with our missing link - @hannah.eshleman 😊🥰
