Happiness Journal Pt 4

I LOVE BOARDGAMES!

That is just a fact. They are the best thing ever. They are entertaining, you can learn something new and you can have a bit of a giggle.

When I drew the picture for my Happiness Journal, I had played ‘Star Wars Monopoly’ very recently and we needed so much tea, diet coke and chocolate buttons just to keep us going! Monopoly takes so much time and if we didn’t have anything, I am sure I would not be sat here writing this (okay, that is a slight exaggeration, but it did take a very long period of time)!

I also really love it when it gets to the point in the game where going to jail gets fun because it means you don’t have to spend money for the next few goes!

This makes me happy!

I love it when you are allowed to leave work just that little bit early… It means that I am allowed to get more sleep. If you can remember, my first entry into my ‘Happiness Journal’ was that sleep makes me very happy. This means that if I get an extra hour or so in bed due to leaving work early, I am a very happy bunny. It also means that I am less tired and grumpy in the morning, which is a bonus!

So I guess that it would be silly of me to not share the fact that I am a Christian as that in itself makes me super happy. But, because the act of worshipping my God brings me so much joy, I think it would have been foolish of me to gloss over it.

For those of you who aren’t sure what worship is, it is defined as the ‘feeling or expression of adoration for something and/or someone’ and for Christians that can range from dancing around your bedroom and singing songs to reading the Bible and listening to someone preach; it is an integral part of our walk with God.

As a Christian, worshipping God in all his fullness highlights how awesome and incredible He really is because of the fact that I am able to experience so much emotion in his presence. I am so thankful that He has allowed us to be able to ‘enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise’ (Psalm 100:4). I just have to stand in awe of of the fact that someone so powerful wants to meet with us intimately and lets us come to Him freely, without and fear or shame!

Furthermore, seeing others worship and how God works through that just fills me with excitement and anticipation of the great things he has in store for us.

This makes me happy!

So, why does sleep make me so happy?

  • After a late night out, much like the New Years Eve party I have previously mentioned, it is great to curl up under a nice cosy duvet and sleep the night away!
  • After work it is also nice to rest the feet and shut down, especially after running around trying to get as much done as possible.
  • I can wake up refreshed in the morning, ready to start again!

This makes me happy!
