Ok that picture isn't the greatest, taken with my cell and I couldn't see to get it centered but these geraniums are going nuts! I do have some deadheading to do, another day. Our weather is blazing hot now and with all the rain it has created amazing flower beds. I have cucumbers and zucchini set on now too. This is a piece of my happiness.
Today is my brothers birthday. I am so happy to still have him around. He has had some crazy health scares and come through great. Happiness!
Today is day 560 of me logging on to Sparkpeople. I was also blessed when I jumped on the scale. As I got on I breathed a sigh and asked the scale to give me a particular number, nope, it was LESS! Happiness!!!!
So, I have to wonder when things aren't going that well, like the scale doesn't go the right way, our car breaks down, we get the flu, do we find happiness in the midst of those. HELL YA! I am definitely a glass full kind of gal. Yes, this week my sons truck is finally getting fixed so I won't have to lend my car for him to get around. It is going to cost use somewhere around $800 (USD) ouch, but Happiness, he will have his own wheels and being its a pickup I can use it to get garden stuff that doesn't really fit my little Subaru.
Here's the thing too, each day is new and fresh. Look ahead to something positive. What if we planned our days like we plan our meals, writing down each thing...recording. Every Night at bedtime I put my food plan in my cell, what if I did that with my activities? iE.:
1) walk the dog
2) enjoy coffee on the deck=happiness
3) clean the bathroom....eeewww, not my fav
4) stand back and admire the gleaming white sink, tub and toilet. Happiness
I guess you get where I am going. Vision, create a vision of happiness.
O, BTW, I have been planning to take the NASM (National Association of Sports Medicine) personal trainer course and today an email....they send A LOT, came with a 40% discount on the course.
