Thursday Thoughts




























I am reading Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project and am gleaning much from it. Her project (to learn as much as she can about happiness and become happier herself) resulted in a book, a blog and a website,all chock- full of helpful things to think about each day. I've taken a number of her insights to heart, including "dressing the part". Today I'm more dressed up than I would be on a typical weekday, but it's improved my outlook. I've asked for help, which was a difficult thing to do, but most beneficial, and I've gone out looking for small things that light up my day. Today seeing spring green shoots in the gardens at home and at church have been great delights. Spring is springing up, and it's just March 31.

The first blooming crocuses I've seen were in the front yard of the house we're moving into in May. I nearly skipped they made me so happy!

It is chilly here, but nonetheless we walked our dogs today - and I was delighted to see some little crocuses popping up in a neighbors yard. I think that book sounds like a great idea to read - and actally it made me conscious of the fact that I do "dress up" sometimes just so I can feel better - hair done, make-up, clothes....it's really helped me during this funky year I've had.
