Remember the Dog That Doesn't Bark.

Posted Nov 22 2011 11:44am

2011 Happiness Challenge: For those of you following the 2011 Happiness Project Challenge , to make 2011 a happier year -- and even if you haven’t officially signed up for the challenge -- welcome! This month’s theme is Gratitude (I didn't even consider the fact that Thanksgiving is coming up, very appropriate), and last week’s resolution was to Find gratitude cues in everyday life . Did you try that resolution? Did it boost your happiness?

This week’s resolution is to Remember the dog that doesn't bark. (Spoiler alert: I talk about how Sherlock Holmes solves the crime described in "Silver Blaze" .)

If you want to read more about this resolution, check out…
Why a hurricane filled me with gratitude .
Gratitude journals, and the happiness of not having cancer .

If you're new, here’s information on the 2011 Happiness Challenge . It’s never too late to start! You’re not behind, jump in right now, sign up here . For the Challenge, each week I'll post a video suggesting a resolution for you to consider. For more ideas for resolutions to try, check out the archives of videos here .

How about you? Have you found ways to cultivate gratitude in your everyday life -- and in particular, gratitude for things that didn't happen? I find it challenging.
