A while back I made a list of all the little things that make me happy. List making was one of the items on that list.
I’m not the only one for whom list making has this peculiar effect. Almost a year ago now, reader Annie asked her facebook friends (of which I am one) to make a list of four songs along these lines:
1. a song that makes you happy
2. a song that gets you on the dance floor
3. a song that makes you cry (when no one’s watching)
4. a song that reminds you of being 18
It turned out to be quite a popular game, such that I thought it was high time we repeated the exercise!
Don’t spend hours and hours giving it too much thought (unless you really want to of course – hello Karen Harris), just dive in and pick the first four songs that meet the criteria.
If you think of more songs later – come back and have another go!
Jot your answers in the comments below, or on facebook where some people have already posted some great tunes!
This Wednesday I re-join the delightful Michelle Ward of Phoenix98 FM to discuss ‘happiness’, and to answer your happiness related questions. Last month’s questions covered weight loss, hypothyroid syndrome, and what to do if you feel you have to choose between your own happiness or someone else’s. To listen to the show click the big play button in the image below (or if you’re reading this in an email, click here)
If you have a question for this month’s show feel free to drop me a line, post a comment below, tweet either myself or Michelle, or send me a message on facebook. We’ll get through as many as we’re able.
