Sometimes it's the Little Things!

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

So, I don't have time for a long post, but I did want to say a few words today, because, once again, SP added a positive JUST when I needed it!
Sounds kinda silly, probably, but when I get one of those BIG SPINS on the login wheel, I get really excited.
Today was a stressful day - one of those work Mondays where nothing goes right. I've been feeling so uncharacteristically not-so-happy lately (letting stuff get to me too much!) and couldn't even make it to zumba to sweat off the stress.
But late in the day, I tried to lift my mood with at least some exercise. After a 40 minute walk, emoticon
I logged in tonight to track my minutes, and of course spun the wheel and - YIPPEE - 25 points!
Then, I felt much better - thinking at least something is going my way! And maybe this is a sign and the beginning of a better trend ahead.
One can hope...

    Ok, so I realize this is an old post but I just came across it and it's SO TRUE - at the end of the day, the little things are really what life is all about, and being able to enjoy them and let them lift your mood is the secret to a happy, positive outlook in life...
if only we were all able to put this into practice more often, but like you said - it's the little steps, the small progresses, even when everything else isn't going as perfectly as we would have wanted... right?
Best of luck in 2013!
