Best happy acts of 2018

Author and her daughter

When I started this blog four years ago, I hoped I would find a community of people who would join me on a journey to explore what it means to be happy and be inspired to take action to create our own happiness, one happy act at a time.

I also knew there would be others who would never “get it” and think I’m crazy. I once had someone ask me, why do you blog about the same thing every week?  Sigh.

While there is always a common thread in my posts: exploring what makes us happy, I hope dear loyal readers you have figured out that like life, is a smorgasbord of content. Some weeks, it is a blog for foodies or commentary on work; other weeks it’s a travelogue or a humour column.

Some weeks it’s an advice column where I’m seeking advice for a problem or issue in my life. Other weeks, I’m sharing a tiny drop of inspiration or motivation. Either way, I hope you’ve enjoyed reading it and it’s helped you on your journey to be happy.

I know life gets busy and there is a good chance you may have missed some happy acts this year, so to help you overcome FOMO (fear of missing out), here is a reprise of my top ten favourite happy acts of 2018. I hope you keep reading every Sunday morning and continue on with me on this journey in 2019.

On travel and exploring

On being happy at work

For giggles

Motivation and inspiration

Happy New Year everyone and here’s to a happiness filled 2019.

  1. I read every one of your ‘Happy Act’ blogs, and enjoy them immensely! Over the years, the one comment that stood out the most to me about being happy, was “Lower your expectations”. Too often we build up in our minds what ‘should’ be, and don’t appreciate all the simple things that make life beautiful. Thank you for my Sunday inspiration (and usually a giggle).

  2. Love your blog Laurie. You write so well . Your words cause us to reflect on simple things we forget and or take for granted. Thank you for the grounding and your “Happy Act”
    Wishing you much happiness for 2019

  3. Hi Laurie,

    We don’t talk about your blog very often but I want to know that I look forward to it every Sunday. You always have something interesting to post and i enjoy the photos as well. Thanks for keeping it up!
