Sometimes we need a little help to remember what we are grateful for, to find our happy place. The Happiness Toolbox is a tool I use for this. You Happiness Toolbox could be a list of memories or activities or things that make you happy. It could be a list of things that help you to relax and be calm. It could be phone numbers, for those people that you know will be there for you when you need them. It could be an actual box, a memory box, with precious things that you can pull out and touch and smell and remember …. and smile.
I created my Happiness Toolbox a long time ago when my father was sick.
I was young. I was 18 when Dad was given two months to live.
