Developing an “attitude of gratitude” is one of the simplest ways to improve your satisfaction with life.

Time and again, I’ve experienced and known the benefits of gratitude and documenting what I’m grateful for on my “gratitude journal”, not just on Thanksgiving or on birthdays nor just on Christmas days. And yet, I don’t practice reflecting on what I should be grateful for and actually keeping a “gratitude journal”. Another one of our many resolutions this 2018 is to reflect daily at the end of every night and just soak it all in — the lessons, the blessings, and the in-betweens — being grateful for everything.

To remind me of the benefits of gratitude I have read this article from Forbes.com, and to kick this off I am sharing my “The Happy List” for January.

My most favorite scientifically proven benefit of writing a gratitude journal is improved sleep. Just by spending 15 minutes jotting down a few grateful feeling before bed may make you sleep better and longer. (And I sooo need this because duh, I’m still breastfeeding my toddler boy to sleep! My mind is so awake thinking of the things I could’ve finished for the day, etc.)

Relationship Goals

It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages. ~Friedrich Nietzsche

Us, too, have relationship goals. This 2018, B and I both agreed that our relationship and marriage is one of the aspects in our lives that we’d love to nourish and work on. Marriage is such an integral part of our family, and a healthy happy marriage we have can only mean happy and healthy family life for us and our little one, baby Bryce.

One resolution we agreed on is to intentionally set a date once or twice a month to do meaningful stuff. Each of us will have our turn to plan the “date”. It could be to discover new places, to discover new eats, or to spend time doing activities that will re-acquaint us and make us even more closer.

Do you also make relationships resolution? I’d love to hear how you nourish your marriage and relationships.

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person. ~Mignon McLaughlin


The secret of a happy marriage is finding the right person. You know they’re right if you love to be with them all the time. ~Julia Child


Happy is the man who finds a true friend, and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife. ~Franz Schubert


A good husband makes a good wife. ~John Florio


A happy wife is a happy life.

Koreans are known to be obsessed with skin care and they are a great influence for our own obsession with K-Beauty, and why not? Korean skins are popularly known for its distinct beauty and they call it “Chok Chok” — luminous, glowing, fresh, dewy, almost porcelain-like skin that’s gorgeously fair and looks au naturel.
