What 5 things do you need to be happy?

As part of my commitment to the word BLOSSOM for 2012, I am journalling some thoughts on what it takes to make me truly happy. There are a lot of things we think will make us happy, that in the end, don't. For years I have had "Attend Burning Man" on my list of things I would like to do before I die. But this past year, when looking at pictures of the event I had to admit to myself, I would not do well hanging out in the dessert for several days with a non-stop party around me. I am learning as I get older, to accept that some things are better imagined than real ;) And there is nothing wrong with admiring Burning Man from a distance.

So here are five ideas that came to me about what I think would make 2012 a happy year for me: Creative GROWTH, more KNOWLEDGE of art techniques, opening my heart to more LOVE, allowing space for EASE in my life, and focusing on the JOYFULNESS of life with my little family.

I would love to hear your thoughts on what 5 things you need to be happy.

Have a beautiful day!


  1. Hmmm. I pick:

    1. CONNECTION with my community.
    2. TIME for myself.
    3. A place to do my WRITING.
    4. CLARITY about what I'm doing and why.
    5. PEACE in my family.
