What Was The Best Part of Your Day?

Even Happier QuestThe June task in the Happiness Project is to make time for friends. We’re all busy and don’t always have time to catch up over lunch or coffee a lot of times. Friendships sometimes fall by the wayside even though we don’t mean for them to. Life gets in the way.

I decided to get creative with this task. I started posting the question above to Twitter and Facebook each evening. What was the best part of your day? I just posted it. I didn’t say why or anything else about it. It was a simple question that let me ask about the day that my friends had.

The answers I got ranged from surprising their daughter with a trip for ice cream after school to a cousin’s wedding to getting a magazine published on the iPad. I was excited at the number of people who participated and answered the question. All of the answers made me smile.

I also got the chance to think about the best part of my own day and I hope it made my friends think about theirs when they might not have otherwise. Even if they didn’t post a response, I imagine that they at least paused to think about their answer. Maybe it made them smile too. If you can call a friend tonight and ask them this question and keep in touch, that’s ideal but even if you just do it online it will bring a smile to your face. I promise!

The best part of my day was a friend returning to work after a leave of absence. It was great to work with him again and I missed him while he was gone. 🙂
