Although I try to resist the urge to write anything too personal (which means that I am likely to delete this in a couple of days), some things are just too nice not to share. Unfortunately, I didn’t win the lottery. I just really appreciate simple everyday happy stuff — that’s a mouthful — like:
1. Being able to eat chocolate chips. Dot dot dot, after a whole day of eating nothing but Skyflakes. I wouldn’t want to elaborate but it has something to do with loose… movement.
2. Comments from people you don’t know. I know our parents said we shouldn’t, but I like talking to strangers. It’s like, hey, someone’s reading! And that makes me happy. 🙂
3. Contagious blog posts. Once in a while you come across feel-good blog posts and you feel just as inspired. ?
4. Knowing you’re cool. Well that sounds a bit narcissistic but I got that from a movie I watched in the car on my way home: “It’s Kind of a Funny Story”. It’s about 16-year old Craig who admitted himself to a mental hospital after realizing he needs to be cured of his suicidal depression. Anyway, one of his friends from inside, Bobby, told him:
“You’re cool. You’re smart. You’re talented. You have a family that loves you. You know what I would do just to be you for just a day? I would, I would do so much. I would, I don’t know, I’d just… I’d just live. Like it meant something.”
See, there’s no need to dig too deep. We all have something — big or small — to be thankful for. We just gotta keep our eyes open. 🙂
