Enjoy what you do

Life is too short to be unhappy. We all have down times and sad things happen, but life overall should be enjoyable.
I love my job and the people I work with. Because of my profession, I have met some of the most fantastic people and been in some of the most unusual homes. I have been able to exchange ideas with my peers and clients and come away with new insights and a stronger realization that all people are fascinating.
I belong to a goals group that really keeps me grounded. Once a month we meet and discuss the wins we have had in the past month. We talk about our goals for the upcoming month and ask for ideas to help us meet our goals. In the two years this group has been together, we have all done some fantastic things.
One of the fun things I have done this week is to make a video (http://www.youtube.com/user/danynieves) with Dany Nieves (pgarts@mindspring.com) of 307 Idea Factory. I had so much fun doing it and I am really enjoying people's comments about the video. I look forward to doing even more with Dany.
I am looking forward to the Decatur Book Festival, where I will be in the Get Organized! booth. The past years there I have met many fun, wonderful people. I am also looking forward to the workshop Diane Quintana and I are preparing for Sept. 11, 18, and 25 where people can come and get guidance on their own organizational projects.
I guess looking forward is the key to happiness.
What is making you happy?
