Looked Forward(?) to An Iffy Day-Look What Happened!

This first day of 2014 didn’t seem to be one I would enjoy.  The days have been cloudy and not much sun lately.  I felt destined to push through the heaviness, get the day over with, and hope the next would be better.  There wasn’t the brightness to my spirits I was hoping for to “start the year on the right foot.”

Then, I got a phone call.  My son called early and wished me a happy New Year.  His voice was strong; his demeanor upbeat.  It took me out of my doldrums immediately.  It’s amazing what a phone call can do – a good one.

I got another call.  My sister called to wish me a happy New Year.  We have a great rapport and we banter back and forth and get silly and laugh a lot.

While the Rose Bowl parade was making noise in the background, I took a look at my emails.

Got on to Suzie81’s Blog.  How??  I was immediately taken in by her current blog post found at http://suzie81.wordpress.com/2013/12/28/successes-and-mistakes-blogging-in-2013/ in which Suzie covers, at length, her take on what she considers her successes and mistakes in the short time she’s been blogging.  Her advice is a rare gem.  Take a look.

I believe, when someone starts a blog, there isn’t the thought in mind that what we write about is going to affect readers one way or another.  I didn’t think that but, yesterday, I was told that I may have inspired someone in particular to start “journaling” again.  If that isn’t a happiness happening, I don’t know what else could compare at that moment.

So far, it isn’t a half-bad day after all!

Sunshinebright Isn’t So Bright Today

It’s so close to New Year’s – only one more day to go.  I think it’s getting to me.  I had to think real hard to find something in my day that made me happy – something that would be worth writing about.  I came up with:

RUSTY!  My smallest cat.  He is really a special little guy.  We were cuddling on my bed and he reached out and placed his sweet, soft paw on my arm and spoke to me and looked straight into my eyes.  HEAVEN.  I can always count on him to make me feel brighter.

A GREAT IDEA!

I was channel surfing this afternoon and came upon the OWN channel.  Oprah was just finishing up an interview with a spiritual woman.  The last piece of advice she gave Oprah was:  “Keep a journal and write down what made you happy today.”

I like to write, so I figured “I could do that.”  It’s a few days early to implement a New Year’s resolution, but, so what?  A good idea is good whenever, right?

I got right onto WordPress, started my blog and here I am.

The day isn’t over yet, but, there is something that made me happy today up to this point:  I downloaded a radio program onto my computer.  The sound quality is great and the “radio” is so easy to use.  It even has stereo!

I can now listen to my faves all day long!

Have a great day!!
