Around the same time I decided to start a gratitude journal, I stumbled upon Oprah’s #30DaysofHappiness initiative (I use stumbled upon kinda loosely since Oprah.com is the home page on my personal computer). Today I decided to start documenting both…I have a lot that I want to say but will spare you the drama and give you the moral of my happiness story of the day. I woke up, downloaded a gratitude app #teamiPhone, drank a glass of water, went to work, got there SUPER tired at 7:45am, forgot my organic lunch at home, drank half a Cherry Coke, checked email, did some work, received a message from a friend that she had a gratitude rock for me ((what’s that???) don’t know, accepted anyway and processed it as a sign). (This is where the story picks up, I think) Called my husband to see if he would drop off my lunch, he agreed, took a mental health walk outside, did more work, got a call that he was outside, went down the elevator, sat on the concrete planter waiting on him and felt a breeze like no other. Why was this breeze so special? I don’t know, probably because I was overly aware of it. I decided at that moment (11:30ish) this was my happiest moment of the day.
Fast forward to lunch time… my friend came to visit me at my new desk, went back to her floor (my old floor), dropped off some peaches, went to visit my other friend who had the gratitude rock for me…there were so many to choose from; I was torn, narrowed it down to my 3 favorites, asked her for assistance in choosing one and she asked if I wanted to take them all!!! “ABSOLUTELY! OMG girl you made my day, I this this is (I think) going to be my most happiest moment of the day”
Fast forward to the end of the day. After dinner, a semi draining convo(s) and feeling like no one gets me, I realized my happiest moment of the day was receiving confirmation from The Most High (Allah, God, The Universe, Krishna, Yahweh, Yeshua, Jesus, or whatever you prefer) of my intent. Today I set out to appreciate the small things and to choose happiness. I momentarily got distracted by the breeze and the rocks and almost overlooked the alignment in the sequence of events. Although the entire day was not picture perfect, I received confirmation that I am (finally) back on the right path and this ewh moment turned out to be the happiest moment of he day for me.
No polish = more music to sum up this post.
what a choppy, most people won’t understand story…deal with it!
