My 100 days of happiness day 26 or so……

Well it looks like I fell off the 100 days of Happiness commitment wagon. In fact I have not written about happiness since June 25 or day 25 of my 100 days. How about this, I will pick up where I left off? I’ll start day 26 right here right now. Someone once asked me, “do you want to be a quitter or a failure”. This question was in relation to my desire to pack the BC real estate course in. I’d come to the stage in the course where I had to learn to use a business calculator. Math not ever having been my forte I froze every time I tried to do an assignment. The course was taken via distance and so I’d snail mail my assignments in once a week. And most times I’d get every thing almost right. It was so long ago I can’t recall how many wrong answers you were allowed before they’d make you redo that weeks assignment. During the math section my work was sent back every week. So, as I was saying some smart person posed that question to me. Today I am asking myself that question. Is it important to follow through with a promise immediately or in this case within 100 days. Or is it enough to check in from time to time to say “yup, I had some happy days”. And I did. I did. Today though I feel really happy and that is why I’m writing in my blog. Just to reach out and say it’s ok to find joy in the mundane. I found my happiness today and the last few days, cleaning out my closets, sorting through junk and tossing what I don’t need. Soon all will be in order and I’ll feel even better than I do this day. This day, I feel grateful to recognize joy when I feel it. And I feel go to remember how good it feels to just start again as if there were never a break and also to remember what I said that day so long ago, “I’d rather be a failure than a quitter any day”.

    Well said! And, you are right …I think that the birthing day is often more important to the mother than even to the child as their birthday. We are the ones who remember it in detail and how much it amazingly alters our lives. Here’s to finding your happy moments as you navigate onwards.

    On the 31st of August it will be Vic’s 40th birthday. I am arranging a mass release of balloons at Hospice in that afternoon. It will become our Annual Memorial Day. I am so sad. Many hugs and fond wishes.

      There are so many dates though aren’t there? All birthdays, it doesn’t matter whose, all celebrations – ours or someone else’s. Everything Jason can’t be at or doesn’t want to go to:)) is a reminder he is not here.
