Creating A Happiness Folder In Your Email

By Luis H. Garay

Earlier this week I opened up an email from a student affairs friend who until recently was a fellow person on this job search journey. We had met at an orientation conference through a mutual friend and found ourselves connecting again as we both went into the summer job searching. Even though they recently found a job, they frequently check in on my job search and since they know the peculiarities of job searching in the summer this is much appreciated.

The email from this friend contained messages of support from my friends (both in student affairs and not). Their messages were full of love and support. Needless to say, it took all about 5 seconds to start tearing up from all the happiness.

I sent out emails and text messages of thanks and found myself re-reading their messages. A thought I had was to create a “Feel Good Things” folder in my email to save this message and others for less-than-spectacular days. I’ll also have to remember to add Buzzfeed Animals posts and funny internet findings to cheer me up on a gloomy day.

Do you have a “Feel Good Things” email folder or something similar? What emails or things would you like to fill the folder with? Comment below or tweet me (@LuisHGaray) your tweets. As always, thanks for reading!
