Unfortunately I'm not the most optimistic person in the world, although I do try. I really do. I truly believe that a positive outlook on life will get you far and make the journey that much more fun. But I need to work at it, you know? I need to remind myself every now and then that I have so much to be grateful for, and that whatever problem is worrying me at the moment is insignificant compared to all the things in my life that make me happy.
So I started a journal that I write in every night before I go to sleep, a "happy" journal. I jot down three things from my day that have made me happy. It doesn't have to be anything monumental, actually its usually the little things that do it for me. A cup of coffee drunk in peace and quiet, a phone call from a friend, something one of the kids does.... Ending the day by thinking about these moments always puts a smile on my face, and looking back on all the moments I've collected in my journal truly reminds me that I have a very rich life indeed!
:: I was in the car by myself for once this morning, and I took the opportunity to put on my favorite song and play it LOUD!
:: I walked into the living room only to find my husband and Sebastián hiding under a blanket, exchanging stories of when they were little. Hilarious since Sebastián is only 2,5 years old
:: My new camera arrived today and I started snapping away as soon as the battery was charged. Looking forward to all the great pictues I'll take with this baby!
What made you happy today?
