    GOOD thought for the day!

    (From OM Daily)

    Life is full of little wonders that can make us happy. The sound of a baby?s laughter, a good book, the comforting smell of a favorite old sweatshirt, and the warmth from a cup of hot tea are simple pleasures that can easily put smiles on our faces. These ?little things? are easily accessible to us and can be sources for finding happiness. A key to doing so is taking the time to put those rose colored glasses from childhood back on so you can easily find the joy in all the ?little things? that life has to offer.

    Finding a puppy rummaging through the laundry basket, trying on that perfect shade of lipstick, or discovering the extra change you left in your back pocket can turn into moments of delight. Like kids digging in the sandbox for buried trinkets, we may even begin to experience happiness when we engage in the seemingly mundane. Figuring out a software program can feel like deciphering a treasure map, and that first sip of tea in the morning can taste like a forbidden delicacy. Swaying to music playing on the radio can turn into an interpretive jig, riding a bike can seem like flying to the moon, and getting a phone call from that special someone can feel like winning the lottery. A pickup game of basketball becomes an exciting match among champions, and observing an elderly couple walking hand in hand can turn into a meditation on peace and contentment.

    When we begin rediscovering that the little things in life can make us happy, we naturally want to share this joy with others. We may gush over a friend when we run into them unexpectedly, praise a street musician for their talents, or blow bubbles for the neighborhood kids to chase. We may even start to think of the little things we can do to make other people happy, which in turn makes us happy all over again. There is an endless supply of little things and little moments that can make us happy. All we have to do is look for them, and they?ll magically start to appear

    Watching your child sleep. That is my favorite.

    Thank you so much Savon, I'll be watching for the little things all day

    Whoever wrote that never smelled my old sweatshirts, or realized how many clothes and furniture my puppy destroyed.

    Nonetheless, Happy FRIDAY Everyone. Let's make it the perfect AF day!

    Great thought for the day.

    I just wanted to add that sometimes, even when there is absolutely nothing apparent to smile about and I am feeling upset/sad/disoriented, I will just look up and smile.

    The act of smiling, for some reason I simply cannot explain, seems to brush the bad mood away.

    It is a simple act but it has helped me through some very rough times, lately.

    Hope all have a wonderful AF day.

    Love,
    Cindi

    Boss -

    Puppies - gosh they make me smile, but crap, they have good taste.

    My puppy liked ONLY Victoria Secret Bras, not Sears bras. My puppy like to chew ladies stockings, not knotted up men's sweat socks.

    Who knew shelter pets were so high class?

    Have a great night.
