Today I woke up grumpy. Super grumpy. And as the LOA works, it got worse the moment I stood up and got out of bed.
So after a few hours of grumping at everyone around me that I normally love, I decided we all needed some fresh air, and so we took a walk in the rain. This normally cheers me up.
Today, it didn't. So as we are walking, I asked myself: "Heike, what would make you really happy right now?". I could not think of a thing. I thought about food, people, shopping, my kids, etc. Nothing.
Thankfully, this cloud wore off before anyone disowned me.
It made me decide to make a list, a list of things that make me happy. So next time I wake up in a funk, I can grab my emergency list before things get ugly.
My list is kind of funny, and I am not going share publicly. I dare you to sit down with your deepest self and think about what makes you happy. And don't just write down the spiritually and socially acceptable stuff, be honest and keep the list private if need be. One of my items: xx. Make a super find at the thrift store for under $5. (Really, this thrills me immensly).
The little things in life.............
