Eight days of happiness.

It is winter. (Or, it will be in a few days.) Most of the time, I am okay with winter before the holidays. This year, due to the fact that we’ve received more snow before Christmas than I recall in a long time, I am not okay with it. I am downright sad and annoyed by it, actually.

So. Instead of sitting around, moping about how much I detest the winter, I’m going to focus on happy things for the next eight days, until Christmas Day, instead. It is fitting that I’ll be ending this on Christmas, as most of the time it’s my favorite day of the year.

Happy Thing #1: I am proud of myself for being where I am right now. I’m not rich by any means, but I can sustain myself. Everything I pay for comes from money I make on my own. I work a decent paying job, and I am managing my money fairly well. I am able to afford my car payments, my student loans, my other bills, and still have money to go out and enjoy myself. I’m happy to be where I am right now, as being broke was a big concern for me when my marriage ended. I am happy to say I am doing well for myself, and I’m hoping down the road my financial situation only improves.

What makes you happy today?

  1. I’m happy to be gainfully employed. With so many people losing their jobs these days, it’s definitely something I don’t take for granted!

    I’m happy for my knitting friends and groups. I enjoyed the gatherings this w/e. Isn’t your birthday on Christmas? Another reason to anticipate that day…I hope it’s a happy one.

  3. i am happy that it finally stopped raining in budapest. (though it did get colder…cold and not rainy is better than less cold but rainy.)
