How has someone made your day?


I recently bought a military-style jacket (and for a great price) and had many people come up to me to say they thought it looked cute. That small compliment made my day! How has someone else made your day?

Today, someone recognized my knowledge and experience in a matter and asked my opinion.
It felt good.

Secretive signature.

I made a Christmas card for someone, and their genuine smile made my day all the better

There's no such thing as an ordinary human. We're humans with extraordinary thoughts.

When I was taking art, I resided in a very windy city. One day, my portfolio blew open and all my pages flew onto the road. Without thinking twice, a stranger on the other side of the crosswalk bolted to grab all of my art pages while cars were still driving past.

I still owe that stranger a thank you.

Surprising me with this picture for a birthday gift



We've all got a little bit of royal blood in our veins, we're all in line for the succession, and if nineteen million, four hundred thousand, two hundred and eight people die, I'll be king tomorrow. It's not very likely but its a nice thought and helps keep me going.

This creates a beautiful mental image.

Yeah actually. I’m friends with this really chill guy who apparently really likes me. It’s refreshing to actually be liked by someone. Anyways, we walked around the mall once and jokingly he wore my scrunchie. At the end of the day when I left he was going to give it back but I said “you can keep it.” We both smiled. And still now he wears the scrunchie throughout the day.

That's not mustard, he got hit in the face with a custard pie.
See his ear, eye, nose and hair.

Very endearing. He sounds like a sweet goofball (best kind of guy)

I'm American. We don't have custard. We have mustard and biscuits. (Actually, I think we do have custard. We just don't acknowledge it).

The other day this lovely young girl kept letting me go in front of her when I was getting off the tram. She had such a lovely smile and was very sweet.

I don't generally care that much about compliments or nice gestures but I love it when I geek out or share a funny moment with a stranger over something.

Today I high fived a guy after we agreed that DS9 is the best Star Trek. (He was wearing a TNG shirt)

On Halloween I was driving around in a Chewbacca costume stuck in traffic and a couple in the car next to me waved at me to roll my window down and the guy did the best chewbacca impression for me. It was great.

Last week a coworker tried to compliment me and instead of saying they liked my shirt, they accidentally said "I like your teeth." We both laughed so hard we were tearing up.

At work along time ago the Board of Directors were trying to get us all fired. For some reason they decided they could get ammunition by making us fill out a questionnaire on what we perceived our job duties to be. My answers to the questions included references to slithering worm-demons and my penchant for screaming, "Momma!!??" One of my coworkers showed my completed survey to one of the supervisors I really respected and he brought me into his office and snickered, telling me he thought I should be a writer. Then he told me how his daughter was an aspiring author. Up until that point we hadn't talked much.

I've stopped isolating as much recently and it really makes my day everytime someone asks me to hang out. Even though I don't always take them up on on it and follow through, it feels good to know that sure, I've isolated and cut myself off, but there's always an opportunity to reconnect. There's no permanent 'you're cut off from humanity' button lol. I'm always welcome to rejoin when I feel up to it. Pple respond to how we are in the present moment, not how we used to be less social. That's a major relief.

On enhanced mobile I don't receive notifications besides pms. Apologies if I don't respond.

Know your ACE (adverse childhood experiences) score?
Sometimes, SA is a symptom of significant developmental, attachment or interpersonal trauma (emotional neglect counts). If you're still stuck after you've tried SA treatments such as CBT and exposure, research C-PTSD and see if it resonates. Here's an awesome resource. Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving
