The kids are all in school, there is a growing crisp in the air. Football games and shorter days fill the weeks. It is September. I have accomplished another month of acknowledging my happiness and gratitude every day. Join me as I continue my goal of one year on this journey. Please join in with your happiness and gratitude in the comments or your own blog post. No matter how bad the day is there is always something worthwhile in the day.
I can breathe a sigh of relief… I am done! My Dad wanted me to shop for birthday presents for both my daughter and niece. He gives me a dollar target and sends me on my way. My niece has a lot of online wishes, but my daughter has more things she wants that I can actually pick up in store. But I have been navigating the internet to find some good deals for my Dad and think I am finally done. Not only did I have items that were out of stock, but I had to watch delivery dates as I am pushing my luck with a celebration planned for the 30th. But I got it done and the latest delivery date possible is one of my daughters gifts set to arrive between the 26th and 29th. I am very grateful that task is done.
As I sit here thinking back on the day I try to find my happiness… it was kind of a rough day. I came back from taking my boyfriend to work and napped. Then tried to track down the last of the online gifts. Picked up my boyfriend. Checked the mail and found a possible problem with my insurance I have to straighten out (called and left a message for my agent) tomorrow. Got dinner for my Dad. And then it was time for dinner for us (a team effort tonight)… it was a busy day.
So I am having a Killian’s to relax a bit. I would have to say my happy moment today was when my boyfriend got his email confirming his 401K loan so he can get his car. Knowing that the check is on the way is a big relief. Now it is simply a waiting game to see how soon he gets it.
Time to slip off to dreamland… oh if only I could sleep well enough to have a dream! Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude. Have a good night/day!
