I had been planning on creating the Daily Happiness Journal for a long time. I finally get myself to do it when there was plenty of time to spend by the computer - namely the corona / Covid 19 pandemic. I wanted to create something that uplifts, and hopefully brings a little joy and humor to your day.

This is light reading - quick to eye through before you start your day. A "family friendly" email, so you can open it at work.

The Daily Happiness Journal will be published from Monday to Friday. (And as I am doing this Happiness Journal -blog alone, there may be intervals if I am traveling, but I'll let you know should that happen)

in daily happiness journal emails you get:

Thought for the Day. Written by me, or by someone else. Even by you, if you wish to participate in creating the letter. The email address will be in the posts.

Picture of the Day - a photograph I have taken. I will tell you a little about the photo as well.

Daily Funny - a clean joke or a funny little anecdote.

You are welcome to send me these too. I especially love the fun things children say. Let's spread smiles together!

Today's Happiness . What made me (or you) happy today. You can send your little happy things to be added to the email. The more the merrier! Let's show people all the good things around us we sometimes do not pay attention to. It does not have to be a lottery win (not that I would not mind one, LOL) but small everyday things and occurrences. We just need to learn to look for them.

Daily Quote. Something I liked enough to put it in the email. Positive, thought-provoking, uplifting.

Writing Blog. I write about my writing, the research needed and sometimes I'll put quotes from my books.

After subscribing you will be directed to the Daily Happiness Journal website, where you can have a look at the latest posts. There is another form, which you do not need to fill again.

I'll be adding an archive of the old posts here on this page as well. Look down. (At first the very first ones from April to May 2020 will be missing, I'll add them when I have time)

If you wish to share your happiness with others, look below the post archives to find the form. I will publish these posts in the Daily Happiness emails and also here on this page.
