Finishing the last week of the Happiness 101 class . Then the final test, found out it was all open book afterwards, so I could of did a little better but I am still “happy” about it . Great course. Thanks Frank for telling us about it!

I got some bad news today about someone I love but really practicing not to react to the news until the parents can get the real facts from the specialist on Tuesday. Practicing self control because reacting to the what ifs don’t help anything. (so hard )

I had a cold call today where everything just fell into place perfectly. I don’t know if I will get the account but I am off to a very good start.

It’s a small thing that is easily overlooked until you can’t do it. Backing up the car. Walking and talking beside someone. Crossing the street. Shaking your hair out. Looking at the mole on your shoulder. Shaking your head “no”. People watching. Watching a tennis match. Reacting quickly to a sudden danger. Addressing the stewardess on an airplane. All of these things would be tougher without the ability to turn my head. Did I miss any?

It truly made me smile when I saw that 40 people have RSVPd “yes” to the Happiness Social on Monday. I truly feel honored. We have a lot of fun at the ‘Socials. I always feel like I am among friends while there. Plus I get …to make up fun and interesting activities and people actually DO them! Finally, I always especially look forward to Happiness Socials just before a class. Inevitably, past students tell the new students what they’re in for. It’s always a great experience.

I remember when I wanted an office SO badly! Today I have TWO! While sometimes Hedonic Adaptation gets the better of me sometimes, often I catch myself gushing with gratitude to have an office to call my own, decorating as I please. Today I pause to give thanks for my office.

Without going into ugly detail, today I was reminded how ugly loved ones can be to one another. I am so grateful that no one I loved ever deliberately tried to hurt me that much. While I wish this had never happened to my friend, it makes me glad that a (previously) unthinkable hurt to that depth has never been pointed in my direction.

Got to spend the morning with my in-family, eating chocolate chip pancakes and introducing them to the game Dominion. They loved it!! I am really grateful that they specifically made a point of coming through Salt Lake on their way home.
