Default Something good that happened today

Pick just ONE good thing that happened today. It can be the simplest thing in the world, like, "I ate a yummy breakfast," or something huge like, "I made a new friend," or "I went to a party" or "I won the lottery." Nothing is too small. The idea is, as soon as you're forced to pick one good thing, a whole bunch of good things will pop into your head. We've got to force ourselves to think happy thoughts. But try to only list one.

I will start. But since the day is still ahead of me, to some extent, I'll say something good that happened yesterday:

I helped my younger brother study for his math test.

I got to see a finished copy of the zine these 7th/8th graders have been working on! It's amazing!! I'm so proud of them (and my group).

And I've found that listening to "Stand Out" by Powerline (from A Goofy Movie!!) does a really great job of keeping me in a good mood.

I love that song! When I first got my laptop from my university, I was afraid to download songs because they told us not to... So the only song I had was "Stand Out" that my cousin sent me through an email. I listened to it non-stop for hours.

I sat in the sun today on my deck and just read for an hour...a deliciously ridiculous bodice-ripper romance, something I would not normally read but I'm trying out new things.

The look on my daughters face, when she wins a first place ribbon in her relay baton race at sports day.

That made me happy.

I went to watch Basic Instinct 2 at a theater, with a classmate. Also, I used public transit system for reaching there.

I purchased a costlier ticket instead of the one I intended out of 'nervousness' at the ticket counter but it was ok.

I managed to call AND turn down a psychiatrist. Sounds pretty simple but for me it took a lot of guts.
