Appreciating the small things in life.
1/ Running around the backyard with my neice Ofelia, being able to pick her up, swing her around, carry her on my shoulders.
2/ Relaxing on a Saturday morning with the cats, a hot mug of tea, and Sparkpeople articles on health & wellness
3/ Listening to Oingo Boingo on Youtube. :)
4/ Modern technology - having a quick video Skype call with my parents last night, while they are on vacation in Cape Cod, and I'm at home in Southern Ontario.
5/ Getting kudos at work for being creative and taking people's minds off the latest round of cuts with a simple play-by-email game with my coworkers (sanctioned by management!)
6/ Looking forward to a 3 km hike this afternoon with friends, gathering materials for a crafts project (here's to friend time that is not food-centered!)
There's been a lot of missteps in my life lately, with work (so much stress!), home life (I was all caught up on housework, and now? not so much), family (my Oma is not doing well with her knee), and geneal unpleasantness (breaking a favourite baking dish in a clumsy split second). But I am choosing not to focus on that, but on the good stuff in my life instead.
Better for my mood, better for my health.
