Feel Good Monday

Happy Mondaaaaayyyyy!

I love Mondays, and you know this, right?

Maybe I’m a little bit EXTRA happy today. If I am, here are a few reasons:

  • I did my run AND yoga even though I was struggling with the first day of “the affliction.”
  • I had a few minutes on the beach, just looking the ocean, smelling the salt in the air, feeling the breeze, with the sun at my back.
  • I found the perfect writing desk, untreated, at Wood You. Now I just need to save the money, and think about/find the designs I want to stencil onto it before finishing it.
  • I edited a short story a wrote last week, and it’s alllllmost there. It will definitely be ready for the Cheers Reader competition on Thursday.
  • I feel like my short story writing skills are improving. The quality of this story in comparison to the last one (yes, I remember that I rushed it) is commendable. I’m going to go back to the other story later this week to bring it up to par.
  • I’ve been doing well with drinking water, and I’ve been practicing yoga more. I definitely feel the difference, and I like it.
  • I’m making soup tonight. It should be good for 3 meals each. Hopefully, I’ll find some nice bread to go with it.
  • My friend of 21 years or so celebrated her birthday on Saturday evening. It was a nice bbq at her house. It’s always nice to catch up with her. Another friend (of about 15 years) was there, and we hadn’t seen each other in about 3 years. Some other interesting people were there, so it made for a pretty cool evening. I was glad Babe got to meet two of my oldest friends – two of the only people from way-back-when that I bother to keep in touch with.
  • Babe loves me. I hear it and see it every day. 🙂 How fortunate am I?!
Goals for this week:
  1. At least 3 evening runs to get back into the groove
  2. Grocery shopping
  3. Lunch from home at least 4 days
  4. Polish short story for competition
  5. First draft of flash fiction for competition
  6. Full inventory of items in storage unit
  7. Develop a plan for the purchase of my own vehicle without bank financing
Funny exchange from the weekend:
Aunt: “Is this your first time seeing a rainbow?”
Cousin (8 yrs): “No. I saw one before, when I was a kid.”
Anxious about:
Dad: “How much do you have saved towards a car?”
Me: “Not much…”
Dad: “Have you been doing ANYthing?”
Me: “Yeah…[volume goes way down as I say things that don’t make sense]”
Sooo, yeah… I was given one of my dad’s/brother’s cars to use, but now the one my brother was driving is down. It won’t be fixed for a while because it costs over $1000. I think they need the car back. I might be screwed.
Hope you had a great weekend, and you’re feeling positive and full of energy for the week ahead!

What are you up to today? How do you feel?

You’re An AllStar!

It’s Friday. (I may have mentioned this already. *shrugs*) And I feel good! *James Brown spins*

TGIF x2- = Thank God It’s Friday +Thank God I’m Fine!

I’m at work. It’s not my favourite place. But I’m in one of my favourite states of mind. Happy, excited, productive… Ready for the next thing. Really, I feel like an AllStar. Screw everything else.

Here’s one for the day. To remind you of yesterday.

 

 

Do you have a favourite “feel good” song? What is it?
