In this morning's paper we read a blurb about Action for Happiness and their 10 Keys to Happier Living which they list through their acronym, GREAT DREAM:
As we explored their website, we enjoyed the resonance with Zentangle - particularly those parts where they mention "noticing the world around you and taking the time to appreciate things" or, "trying out and learning new things." Their "Resilience - finding ways to bounce back" is so similar to our, "There are no mistakes in Zentangle. Whatever happens can be used as an inspiration for a new pattern." Their "Acceptance - being comfortable with who you are" is familiar to anyone who has heard us talk about how we expect everyone's Zentangles to look different.
We love how both approaches give tools to enable people to focus on what brings themselves happiness.
There are many more similarities. We encourage you to take a moment to explore and enjoy.
Best from us both,
Rick and Maria
