"A list started in a small spiral notebook 45 years ago evolved into the book 14,000 things to be happy about, published in 1990 and revised in 2007. What was once just my own way of paying attention, taking note of the little things, and collecting the words to describe them has found its way into more than one million hands. This site has become the repository for a growing database of happy thoughts and shares other list books I have made and still nurture.
Things to be happy about offers lists and a calendar of things to be happy about, a wish list, words of wisdom, a guide to creating good karma, meditations and spiritual reminders, a commonplace book, questions to ask anyone and everyone, word trivia, and a happy thoughts blog. Things to be happy about is a place to savor, share, see, make, send, and support happiness, appreciation, and gratitude."
