Name A Thing That Made You Happy

Post by Cyla » 07/25/14

Because life's a lot better when you can find things to be happy about.

I challenge all of you frequent posters to think of one thing each day that made you happy and post it here, no matter how silly, trivial, or fleeting it may seem.

Maybe you got to pet a puppy, or eat some yummy food. Maybe your pants are really comfy. Maybe you had a good chat with your Mom on the phone.

We all need to be reminded that happy things happen every day!

Monthly Massage + Latte of the Day.

And yes, I like this exercise. It really changes your perspective on things to look for the good!

Just one? Can I name more?

Getting a hug from my stepchildren the moment I woke up and walked into the sitting room.
Waking up with warm fuzzy bodies all around me and my husband at my side.
A nice cold glass of milk with scrambled eggs.
Reading about Cybele's engagement and Beth's marriage.
Finding out Tinkerfest is finally here! *bounces* (I'm so excited!)

I got my MRI date finally and its weeks sooner than I expected.
Moving forward on health issues is always a good thing.

I'm with you there. My doctor was able to squeeze me in for a physical today. Apparently I'm anemic and have been for a little while now. I'm going to get an iron infusion to fix this and today was another step toward feeling better.

I'm in to try this. Any day I post, I'll post here too.

I talked to Gineva at lunch, as I always do, and today we just laughed and had a nice time. I didn't complain, we joked a bit, got a little vomit-worthily cute, and I went back to work with a huge smile. I was more positive than I have been in weeks because I've recognized it's time to get control of my life back from the devil on my shoulder.

I'm happy today because my partner is there for me when it's bad, and she's there when it's good... and you know, when it's good AND I have her, it's the best.

Stopping at my favorite little bistro in town and finding today's special treat is chocolate pecan bars.

Discovered a new restaurant, little place in the downtown area of our small suburb.

Open face shredded chicken sandwich with fresh bruschetta, pesto aioli, brie cheese and a balsamic vinegar glaze. YUM. $21 for dinner for two, bonus, with pops.

I'm in as much as I can remember to do anything...

What made me happy today were the customer who were genuinely thrilled that I was able to help them out. The ones who were willing to BE HELPED.

I looked at the calendar this evening and realized that one year ago, on this very day, I left Mississippi. I packed all my belongings onto a small trailer and drove 1500 miles to my new home. Today is the day I finally got out from underneath my ex-husband's thumb and realized that he truly had no power over me. In one month, my husband and I will celebrate our first anniversary, but I wouldn't have been able to enjoy this day (for the minor victory it is) were it not for the people who allowed me to vent away all of the painful nastiness of last year's betrayal.

To all my friends, the ones who talk to me every day and the ones who only talk to me on occasion, to Erithe, Tajar, Gineva, Lysari, Beth, and everyone else who helped me this last week to move past my anger and hurt...

Thank you. This is what has made me truly happy today.

I was sick as a dog last night. Food and wine disagreed heartily and I ended up a mess. But when it happened the fiancé did not flinch or hesitate, he just took care of me like he had been forever. He's never seen me sick so as awful as I feel I am glad to have the experience.

To thunderstorms and warm summer rain. Ok, it was a torrential downpour, but I had me a chuckle watching everyone in their summer clothes scurry away into shops as I walked down the street getting soaked.

This conversation...

Me: What do you want for dinner?
Hubs: Pickled porcupine.
Me: I don't think we have any porcupines in this part of the state. How about road runner?
Hubs: As long as it's dead.
Me: So I guess that rules out gagh.

This thread. <3

Also upon finding the cream cheese went bad, trying melted swiss and turkey slices on my bagel, popped right back into the toaster oven. Holy yum.
