Today, I’m thinking about a few things that are making me happy. Nothing huge, really, but those little bits of happiness collect like pennies in a jar and add up after a while. Which may be, after all, pretty big.
1. The garage door sensor is fixed. It took all of 30 seconds or so. I’m happy it’s done.
2. The storm doors are also on, and while it would have been fine with me to wait a while longer, as it’s already about a thousand degrees in the house most of the time and I’m HOT, my brother was here to take care of the garage door last night so it was the ol’ “two birds with one stone” kind of thing.
3. I’m taking better care of myself, not only physically, but mentally and spiritually as well. Knowing that I tend to want to sink into ennui, if not actual depression, around this time of year and for the next few months to come, I’ve started taking Vitamin D in addition to my daily multi-vitamin, I have a plan in place to ensure that I’ll stay physically active over the winter, I have a circle of friends to keep me active and engaged, and I make sure I get out of the house most days. Even a small change of scenery and some fresh air helps.
4. Color! I have plans to make sure I get the pops of color I crave over the blah days of winter. I talked about it a lot last winter and never really did anything about it. This year, I’m getting a jump on it so when I need it, I’ll have the hot, bright, cheery color I want when I want it.
That’s it for me. Happy Monday, all–make it a great day!
