Daily Happiness Journal

IWSG monthly blog post

It is all too easy to slip into negative thinking.

In my twenties I noticed for the first time the negative self talk in my mind. I was shocked to notice how negative I was - and soon enough I realised I was repeating a childhood programming I had siphoned without ever noticing it. 

I decided to do something about it. I started to train myself into seeing the good things in life. And keeping a Happiness Journal was something I have been doing ever since. But even that is a habit that is easily forgotten. 

Every day I write down something that makes me happy. I used notebooks and calendars, and then the thought hit me: why wouldn't I turn this habit into a daily email? A little bit more work, but a way to make myself concentrate on good things every day. After all - if I have subscribers who wait for their daily email, I have motivation to get my lazy bum off the couch. So that's what I did: I started a Daily Happiness Journal blog and emails. 

If you wish to check out what kind of emails I have written, you can do so at my Daily Happiness Journal blog - the subscription form is there (you'll receive a confirmation email and need to click on that link too). Short, uplifting daily posts  with a touch of fun (clean jokes). You don't need to fear opening the email if someone is standing behind your back. The pictures are my own photos and drawings. 

Hope to see you on my email list - you'll keep me and your fellow subscribers concentrating on positive things. You can share your own happy stories too (each email has the information where you should send your stories).

What are your happy moments?

Do you have a great story about this? Share it!


The first book you get for free is the Prequel to Nephilim Quest: Angel.

Over two hundred years before Nephilim Quest 1 / Shadowhunter the roots of the story are planted.

A little girl missing her mother, in the palace of the mightiest of the dark Nephilim, hoping for an escape...
