Chicken Soup for The Soul: Mini Goals


"If it makes you happy, it can't be that bad..."
- "If it makes you happy" Sheryl Crow

Does anyone remember those chicken soup books that were supposed to make you lighten your soul? I was cleaning my closet for a Verizon installation and found two of them. Out of all the hoopla over them about 10 years ago, I don't think I ever read them in their entirety. But! They've inspired me, along with the blogging world, to find things that make me happy in my everyday life. There are so many things that make me truly happy and smile & with this polar vortex?!? I could really use some chicken soup to warm up my lil soul!

~My Mini Goals~

~Read more...Oh & not ONLY smutty erotic novels too. Maybe some classics! But I have to first read Doctor Sleep, by Stephen King. I'm number 27 on the Library waiting list!! ~

~Write love notes. I know I can leave a lil thing on Craig's facebook wall, but it's not the same. I miss those lil notes of  years ago of "Do you like me? Circle yes or no?" or the notes "You look pretty today." I don't think I've ever gotten a love letter/note. Maybe the days I get Craig's lunch together, by my choice, if we have leftovers from the previous night's dinner I'll stick a lil love note in there. Perhaps he'll send one back...hehe. =P ~

~Go to the movies. There is something about going to a morning matinee, sneaking in a yummy breakfast in my big purse and sitting back to relax & enjoy. My great grandmother Lena used to go to the movies all the time in the 1920's & 1930's...I think I got the movie bug from her!!~


~Learn how to play the Ukelele. Yes, the ukelele. For months Craig has dragged me to Guitar center in his buying a new bass guitar process and every time without fail I would go play with the ukeleles. This Christmas, he got me one of my very own!! I have to get an book for beginners but I have to learn. It's such a pretty sound!~

~Drink & try more new teas. I actually love tea. Give me a good chai tea and I'm happy. There is a lil tea cafe in Sleepy Hollow, NY (Yes, it's a real place) by me and every chance I get I stop in for a cup. I have to make it there more often. ~

~Somehow & Someway get a lil flower plant and protect it from cats, weather, and other very likely formidable things to happen.  This one is going to be tricky but I have to try. I love fresh flowers, but this year I'm trying to really save money for life events, so one lil plant would be lovely. ~

~Oh and one more thing...Bake more cupcakes! There is nothing that warms my soul more than people loving my cupcakes. I actually am making some roses for a friend's going away party in 2 weeks and I can't wait! 

What are your mini goals to warm your soul this year?
