  16. My little guy is still a little too young for the Fishful Thinking, but it was definitely nice for me to read the Empowering Article "How To Be a Happier Mom". One of my favorite activities that I can't wait to try with my little guy is Shake Off the Frustration Dance.

  17. The Storybook Maker is REALLY cool! I wish my boys were just a little bit older so I could be a Fishful Thinking ambassador too!

  18. I really like the optimism activities--the nature walk, favorite photo, and finding meaning all sound like a lot of fun for our family. I can't wait to try them out!

  19. Seems to me that a reminder of those "5 ingredients" are helpful to us adults too!

  20. I think it was wonderful little site. I loved reading about Goal setting. Activity Goal Road Map (One Step at a Time) I'm going to do this with my son. I think this would be a great activity for us.

    Thank you for sharing such a wonderful site!

    Have a lovely week!
