BLOG – GIFT DAY 186 :: friday flashback

5 Jul

It’s FRIDAY! And that means the Friday Flashback is here, where I share some highlights from my week and some hopefully helpful links for you.This week started with a bang.

Big news came in: my surgery was scheduled for August 22. Otherwise known as “Party in Portland” — at least that is what I choose to think. Hey, if I have to have my thyroid out we might as well make it fun.

As Mama Sling would always say, “If I have to be there anyway I might as well enjoy it.”

So — if you have any ideas on how to make surgery fun (read party central) please let me know. Taking all ideas.

Speaking of enjoyment, I watched this TEDx Talk about how to change our formula for happiness and success.

The Happy Secret to Better Work

The main take away is this: only 25% of job success is predicted by I.Q.
75% of job success is predicted by your optimism level, your social support and your ability to see stress as a challenge instead of a threat.

The good news is — we can rewire our brains for happiness and that leads to success.

There are a few super easy steps:
– meditation
– gratitude
– random acts of kindness
– journaling

Take a look.

More tomorrow.
