This is a selection of my small joys that I wrote down in my journal this week. Enjoy the reading! I hope it will inspire you, at least a little bit.
I was able to pet my white mousey Daisy – and she held still! Which she almost never does. She is always in motion.
I also petted a white poodle that was waiting in front of the post office. He had super-fluffy fur! Poodles are my absolute favorite, I had one and definitely plan to have a poodle again in the future. 🐩
Walking through a shower of golden falling leaves.
Rereading the Scholomance series by Naomi Novik. It’s pretty dark, but so, so good!
Finally scanning the positive affirmations coloring pages I have created 🙂
A massage (bliss.)
Several sunny days. I’m solar-powered so my mood went up a lot.
A small piranha of a stafbul puppy – she has bitten me quite ferociously, like puppies do, but she was so cute that I just couldn’t mind! And her human was wery friendly, we had a nice talk.
Starting an audiobook Atomic Habits – and a giant realization how to create a happy life I had while listening. (I will write about it later.)
Annnnd a not-so-small joy: I got a part-time job writing for a real paper magazine! And I can select most of my own topics. They had multiple candidates and picked me based on the quality of my writing! I’m so proud and grateful.
