HAPPY MOMENT: The best moment of the day happened when I was sitting in piano class and I realized that I really do have a talent for music. I’ve always known that I’ve had a good ear for music, but seeing how quickly I pick up on the music and the keys has been awesome. I hope to continue taking classes until I get to a point where I can pick up any piece of music and play it by reading the notes.

Having gratitude in your life, and avoiding negativity, contribute to a “healthier you.” While this is not a new concept, its really interesting to see that studies are being done on the effects of negativity. What was also interesting is that they did an experiment where they asked the people to write in a daily journal about their positive experiences, and they gauged how “greatful” they were by using these entries. This is exactly how I went about being more positive, so I thought that was pretty awesome!
