Today at work I had a lot of opportunities to just sit and think.
This is usually a good thing, but sometimes it can backfire, and today that happened.
My thoughts started to leave me feeling sad and down.
And then the line, "I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad!!!"
Which, of course, is from this wonderful song in the "Sound of Music."
So I decided I would think of my favorite things and I started making a list of them.
That list is way long because a lot of things make me very happy, which puts them on my "favorite things" list.
So here are only a few of them!
(And jamming to them in my car!)
(Especially if they teach good messages!)
(Especially hearing them laugh and play)
(Especially from strangers!)
The list can go on and on! Just thinking about these things makes me happy! I love being able to find joy in the simple things in life, especially on a rough day! I also love Julie Andrews' reminder.....
"When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad. I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad!!!!"
