Reasons to be cheerful
« on: March 01, 2018, 03:29:03 PM »
As well as a great ian dury song I wondered if this could be a section for us to post upbeat stuff, if it ever happens?

Here's one:

I bought a used car yesterday and today it started and ran perfectly!
Everything will be alright in the end.

If things aren't alright then it isn't the end.

The sun came out today and it was warm enough to go outside barefoot and in a T shirt! AND there was a deer family in my yard munching happily on our grass.  ❤
An entire ocean cannot sink the smallest ship unless the water gets inside it. Similarly, the negativity of the world can't bring you down unless it gets inside you.

I like your idea RA - just moved it here with the other threads like this so members will see it.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion - Dalai Lama

On March 1st here it was about -15C!

Today I had a few hours of professional development and came out feeling pretty buoyed and motivated. Started implementing it on the way home in the train.  ;D

I found some interesting stuff on the beach and saw the first primroses of the year.

I also did a bit of work outside as it was dry and above freezing.

I finished pruning my apple tree as it was dry & not too cold.

i love this idea too rainagain! the reasons so far sound so beautiful i love it! ;D ;D
my reasons to be cheerful are that the 3-day chest pains i had this weekend are finally gone! and that sunday turned out to be sunny and I celebrated the coming of more sunny days (which has also motivated me to draw and paint more frequently) :cheer: :sunny:
I treat myself like I would my daughter. I brush her hair, wash her laundry, tuck her in goodnight. Most importantly, I feed her. I do not punish her. I do not berate her, leave tears staining her face. I do not leave her alone. I know she deserves more. I know I deserve more.
