We are coming down to the end of month two of the Happiness Project. Obviously being the short month I feel like it flew by. But let’s take a look at this months resolutions and the successes and struggles
Eat a salad – in January I resolved to drink to drink 8 glasses or water a day. Something I’m proud to say I accomplished and carried over to February. So in keeping with the theme of being my healthy I set a goal to eat more leafy green vegetables.
First half of the month im happy to say I ate a salad everyday….For breakfast instead of a big bowl of pasta (I will tell you about my breakfast eating habits some other time). I struggled with it mid month when I got the stomach flu…Then again I wasn’t eating anything. Now I’m eating the greens every other day at least. The real accomplishment is that on days I don’t eat a salad I usually pass on the grease burger in favor of a grilled chicken sandwich and I only ate pasta once or twice last month.
Delegate – not only have I gotten better at delegating appropriate tasks to my employees which has made me a lot less stressed at work. I have also assigned my boys age appropriate chores around the house which has helped us keep a much tidier house

Taking more off my plate helped me make my third resolution more possible
I am still looking for the opportunity to make a big difference in someone’s life by helping someone personally who needs a helping hand. But I have focused on helping my employees at work as well as my wife around the house. I’ve donated a lot of food and energy to local organizations. It feels great when someone acknowledges the effort you made to help them.
I am notorious for forgetting or just blatantly not taking time to remember birthdays. I was perfect this month.
I remembered my little sister’s birthday
I wished every Facebook friend good thoughts
And with the help of my staff and made sure that every employee birthday was met with cupcakes or some sort of baked good.
I know what I did was like the minimum ante for a decent human. But it’s a huge step for me.
