Cognitive Dissonance

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony."
I’m very curious. How many of you think that what you think, say and do are in harmony? On a scale of 1-10, how in line are all three areas for you? On a scale of 1-10, how happy are you? Please tell me in the comments, but if you want to keep that private, at least let me know what the difference in the two numbers is or if there is a difference at all.

I feel like Ghandi was on to something with this quote but more on that next week when I’ve heard from everyone, what say you?

Don’t forget, this is a blog hop, check out the other bloggers, leave some love, and link up your own post on happiness.

  1. I tend to think a lot before I say, and say a lot before I do, if that makes any sense. Right now, I’d say what I think & say are pretty in sync, but what I do is lagging a bit behind. Which is tremendously frustrating (and opposite of happy)! But more and more, I’ve noticed that when I do what I intended to do, I am more happy. I have a quote set as my phone lock screen, which I see often, about living more from intention and less from habit – and I feel like that’s exactly along these lines – lining up what you’re thinking/saying with what you’re doing! Good things to chew on – thanks!

  2. This is really interesting. I’ve heard it mentioned before that you have to act and think the same positive way if you want to see some great things brought your way, but I don’t think I’ve thought much about that idea in physical words as well.. I’m not sure what my numbers are, but I’m so glad you shared this! 🙂

  3. These are some really interesting questions! I’m not sure what my numbers are – but I do try to follow through with what I say. If I don’t think I’m actually going to do anything I probably won’t vocalize it.
