The Happiness Challenge Day 8

Friday, February 22, 2013

***** 3 gratitudes **********
I am thankful that I was able to come home today after Stonepark and rest for the afternoon before going into work tonight.

I am thankful for money because it is pay day. I missed a lot of time because of storms so it was not very much but I can delay paying one bill until next payday so it will be enough.

I am thankful that Lavinia enjoys reading and school and has really good teachers who challenge her in areas where she is ahead of the class.

***** Journaling **********
This morning I did my last volunteer hours at Stonepark Junior High this morning. I really enjoyed working with the students in smaller groups. I was helping specific students in the same grade 8 class. There were two girls I was helping with math and a few with English. They are students who are falling between the cracks and are not doing as well but are not getting support because they are not documented with a learning disability. It was good to work with them and try to find how to give them the extra support they need. Working in small groups I can see more than I can in the classroom. I really enjoyed it and am a little sad it is over. I am happy to free up some time to finish the rest of my work for the semester though.

***** Exercise **********
I didn’t do any workouts this afternoon so at work I will do some chair exercises. I will be moving my legs but it is really exercising my core.

***** Meditation **********
I did a breathing exercise and ended up falling asleep. I am burning the candle at both ends these days.

***** RAK **********

You know you’re 70’s old school when you remember when McDonald’s served their burgers in Styrofoam “clamshells,” not cardboard boxes. – Was it really that long ago?
