Happy and Grateful – Day 294

The month of October is upon us.  Fall is in full swing with the leaves gathering on the lawn… maybe a pile or two to run through even.  The evenings are getting dark earlier as the days grow shorter.  And a few of us look forward to a good scare with Halloween coming this month.  Everyday has at least some small portion of good in it.  I am looking for that good with this challenge to find my happiness and gratitude every day.  Join in with the challenge by commenting or writing your own blog… let’s find some goodness today.

The grey skies put a damper on the day today.  It didn’t actually rain until tonight but still the lack of sun contributed to a day with a blue mood.  But there had to be something good somewhere in the day that made me happy.  I would have to say it was when my boyfriend came home from work and I no longer felt quite so alone.

My gratitude for the day is as simple as going to the pharmacy to get a med I ran out of yesterday.  I was worried I had not called in the refill early enough yesterday that they would be able to contact the doctor before the weekend came.  But luckily they had it ready for me.

I need to sleep and start over fresh tomorrow.  It is supposed to be cooler, but with some sun.  That will help.  Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a good night/day!

Happy and Grateful – Day 25

I have undertaken a challenge this year.  I am trying to find the good in every day by writing about happiness and gratitude that I feel.  No matter how small there is always something to bring a smile or make you grateful, if just for a moment.  Follow along with me as I dig deep as necessary and find the peace of the day.  Join in if you are feeling happy and grateful too – in the comments or on your own blog.  Let’s find some fun!

Tough day… I don’t want to write, I don’t want to read, I don’t want to listen to music, I don’t want to watch TV or a movie.  I really don’t even want to breathe at the moment.  But this is about happiness and gratitude.  I say it everyday that there is always SOME small moment that is good.  It is hard to find it today.

My boyfriend was home sick from work today.  I kept up on how he was feeling throughout the day… he never asked how I was.  It has been snowing all day and the moisture adds to my aches and pains.  I am sick of grey days and short ones.  I really need spring.

But back to happiness.  I had a place to stay today in the warmth –  no outdoor job, no going to run errands, no driving in the snow.  So my shelter was my happiness today.  With my depression and anxiety here with the pain today being home is like having a security blanket – warm and comfortable.  I am grateful I can go to sleep and wake up to a fresh (and hopefully better) start tomorrow.

Now to see about the tricky part… sleep.
