My Happy Place Day Twenty Nine

My Happy Place Day Twenty Nine

Well my Happy Place today is just ME. I am happy that I am me, I’m honest about what I say, I like that I love to laugh, I like that I’m becoming stronger in myself and what I stand for. I have no preconceived ideas of anyone and although I know people do presume a fair bit about me and may make the odd judgement, I’m happy that most of the time it doesn’t bother me.

I have friends from countries all over the world, with different religious beliefs, different political views, diffrent backgrounds and different situations, all giving me something new to think about and ponder. A friend is a friend no matter how different you are, the connection you have is the friendship.

When I got married in Spain in the same little village my parents come from and in the same village church, it looked like a United Nations comittee and my Spanish family welcomed everyone with opened arms, kisses, food, drinks and their homes.

I can be happy and sad at the same time, when I remember not so happy moments but happy that I’ve come through OK and put my life experiences, my studying and my teaching in a role where I can now help others find their little bits of happy and letting them know that crying and feeling just OK is part of life too.

  1. On “The West Wing” one of my favourite episodes is where the President talks about how we are all broken. And we are, whether we know it or not. The two emotions can co-exist quite peacefully can’t they? A beautiful, and as always thoughtful post xx

  2. Today I caught my husband bouncing his ARSE off in the kitchen, to some of his favourite 90’s hip-hop music while doing the dishes. (Double joy!) I stood there enjoying the show for a few seconds until he turned around and saw me there. Pity it stopped- he was joyous and youthful and I simply do not see this often enough. It’s all too rare.

  3. Bravo! Bravo! *claps loudly

  4. Great post. Thanks for sharing.

  5. My day has been blissfully uneventful. Not much traffic this morning, so that was nice. Work went by fairly quick and was pretty calm for a Monday. My own kids are all in mellow moods. I even got out for a 1/2 hour walk before it started getting dark. My happy moment was just a few minutes ago. I received a call from my 5 year old nephew who lives in Phoenix. His Kindergarten class was doing a project about leaves and they were collecting leaves from as many states as possible. I sent him a bunch from California – beautiful red, yellow and orange fall leaves. They don’t get those in the desert! He called to say thank you. I haven’t seen him in over a year, and he sounds so grown up now. Made me miss him, but also made me smile and made my day.

    • What a lovely aunty you are sending him leaves, that just made me happy too. Children love receiving anything in the mail and you are one great aunty xx

    Once again, very inspiring!

    I’ve been pondering today about judgement and compassion – so coincidental. I’m learning so much about that at the moment. I could write heaps about it.

    My happy place – I’m going out tonight to a preschool fundraiser ladies evening – a cooking demonstration – I’m going to start getting ready soon. My bestie is coming with me : )

    Also, watching my little man at school athletics this morning was neat. He didn’t excel and that’s cool by me. He had fun trying! Being there meant the house work didn’t get done (other commitments this arvo). Our bosses wife (they own the house) is quite judgemental about house keeping and she turned up this arvo and came in. I’m happy that I prioritised being at my sons athletics over house work and instead of my usual near panic attack about her judgements, I feel ok about it. (One of the things that got me thinking about judgements).

    Today I kept Miss Five out of day care as she had Prep Transition in the morning. We decided on a ‘Mummy and Me’ day while Master Two still went to day care, and everywhere we went she reached for my hand. Poor thing. For two years she has had to walk alone as I pushed or carried her little brother, and we have not had a day, just for us two, in all that time. It was very special day, although we didn’t do much, because it was just the two of us.

  8. It is so nice feeling to feel well about yourself and to enjoy being you. After all you should appreciate yourself in order to make the others respect you.

    Being happy is a sentiment that is entirely up to us and our perception of the world. whatever happens, the most important thing to do is think positive!
