Think Happy Stuff Mug & Gift Book Review & Giveaway

While doing my usual weekly search for motivational quotes and sayings online, I came across a fabulous company, called Think Happy Stuff (HERE). Everything on their site spoke to me ... through times of sadness and discouragement ... a few words ... or happy thoughts from friends and family have really made a difference in my life over the past year. I try to think happy thoughts as often as I can. That is why I started posting morning quotes over on the Running Diva Mom Facebook Page (HERE) every day. It gets your day started off right.

About Think Happy Stuff:

Think Happy Stuff Founder Christine Fekete and her children live in Franklin, TN. Four are birth children- four are adopted.Three are adopted through the State of Tennessee. One son is from China, and joined us when he was nine.I am continuously amazed by my children. Their young hearts are healing from horrible injustices. If anyone had the right to be mad at the world, it would be them. However, I have seen these children learn how to love and trust again. It is astounding.I have seen our birth children bond and accept their new siblings without hesitation. When others at their schools did not believe that a white boy, a bi-racial boy and a Chinese boy could all be brothers, it never occurred to my birth son to end the argument my simply stating that his brothers were "adopted". He just knows them as his brothers. I love that. It insipres me.Part of my journey includes a battle with depression. This was a battle long before I had children. To the world, I seemed happy, confident and secure. I thought I was "OK", but then I would "crash out"- sometimes even desiring to permanently "check out". Then I'd get over it and move on- until I crashed again. It was a continuous, exhausting cycle. I sought the help I needed. And I began to realize there are no small choices- everything is connected.How I choose to respond to the smaller challenges life brings determines how I respond to the bigger challenges life brings. Even the mug I choose for my morning tea in can encourage me and help get me in the right minset for the day ahead. I know that no matter how deep and painful my experience, God's grace ALWAYS runs deeper. I do not completely understand the law of gravity, but from personal experience, I know it to be true. I do not completely understand this law of Grace, but from personal experience, I know it to be true. Therefore, I can think happy stuff. When think happy stuff, inc. began in December 2006 I began to more freely share my story- and in return, I had the honor of hearing other people's stories. "I was just diagnosed with cancer. I need this mug." "We were told our son would not live past the age of two. Now he is ten. I am getting him this shirt!" "My sister died of cancer. Her family needs these shirts." "My husband was just deployed to Iraq for the third time. I need to surround myself with this stuff." "My friend just had a double mastectomy...." "I struggle with depression..." "My husband just left me..." "I'm in recovery..."There is such power when we share our stories with each other!


Change your thinking. Change your world. Think happy stuff.

I received the Change Your Thinking Gift Book (HERE). It retails for $12 and is a great gift for anyone ... whether they are currently going through struggles, or you just want to make their day. The book makes a great stocking stuffer or a special "just because" gift for someone you care about.

"This book is a simple, yet profound reminder that we have a choice about how we face the challenges life brings. We can let the challenges wear us down, or we can face them head on. How you think not only impacts you, but the world around you."


This book is filled with fabulous ideas to make you change your outlook on situations and on life. It touches on everything from performing random acts of kindnes ... to taking time for yourself ... to being punctual ... to giving a good ol' hug. Take time opening the book to a random page and stop and think about how one small change in your daily routine can change your whole day ... or the day of someone else. It will surely change your perspective and separate the negative from the positive. I choose to be positive!!

I did not have this book when I was going through my divorce last year and wish I had. Instead I turned to other blogs or motivational quotes online. This page-turner is a good reminder that positive things happen to positive people!!






I also couldn't think of a better start your day than with a good ol' cup of coffee (with lots of flavored creamer in it!!). This Think Happy Stuff Bistro Mug (HERE) is a great way to motivate you to start your day on a positive note. It reatails for $12 and is a good investment in your day. The bright and cheery colors will brighten your day in the easiest way possible; just choose your favorite color: in pink, yellow, light green, light blue and lavender.
