Every evening I write down ten things that defined my day. I try to capture the good and the bad, things that I am grateful for, things that I am looking forward to, and what I do that day just for me, I really just write the little details that made that day different from others. I enjoy it and it works for me. Here’s some things pulled from various days over the past week:

  1. I got off the bus realizing that I left my umbrella under my seat- I tried to get on the back door just as it was closing- the driver saw this, and actually opened the door and let me run on and get it. She didn’t have to do it but I am very grateful for this one small gesture.
  2. I reorganized the space under my kitchen cabinet. Everything under the sink was great. When I was cleaning up after dinner, I saw a leak. It turns out there was a hole in the pipe! When the handyman came to fix it, he said that not only the pipe had a hole but two other things as well. Glad that all is fixed, and fixed quickly.
  3. All of a sudden, things are crowded and people are busy
  4. Played pickleball outside for the first time- wind was tough to get used to but it was fun
  5. Enjoyed all the live action shorts nominated for Oscars
  6. Remembered to text two friends I’d been meaning to text
  7. Flowers starting to sprout at the garden!
  8. My sister and niece came to town-
  9. Tried new workout class- so hard but so good!
  10. I really like Prosecco

How quick come the reasons for approving what we like? Jane Austen (Persuasion)

  1. I like the gem from Jane Austen! What a nice bus driver. When you bless others, you bless yourself. It’s one of those things you have discussed on your blog previously: she had the power to make your day better or worse. She chose kindness.

  2. Sounds like you had a hectic day. Pickleball is fun and relieves stress while getting good exercise. Glad the leak under the sink got fixed and it sounds like you fortunately had no other damage. At the end of the day, you earned the Prosecco.

    1. Yes and no. Same basic idea. The serve isn’t as important as tennis. The court is much smaller. There are rules as to certain parts of the court where you can and can’t stand. There’s no bounce to the ball so your reaction is different. A two handed backhand is useless. But if you play tennis you’ll pick it up quickly
