Sure, I have those things that worry, things that annoy, and things that anger. But me? I’m happy. Because, besides all those things, I also have:
a journal to write in
books to read
photos to take
good coffee to sip
a husband who makes said coffee
a dog with sweet eyes and a wagging tail
the energy of a good run
happy results after eating well and going on that good run
smiles from the kids I work with
smiles from the adults I work with
the pleasure of a joy ride on a scooter
a rice field and mountain view
dinners out with friends
loved ones coming to visit
loved ones I’m going to visit
easy camaraderie with people I meet
skype conversations with friends and family back home
pretty new platters I found on sale
a comfortable home
a duvet I like to sink under in bed at night
blue eyes I love to wake up to seeing in the morning
music in my head
a book emerging
friends getting married
friends having babies
lime drinks and mango smoothies
letters in the mail and emails in the inbox
peanut butter and honey
…and fresh baked chocolate chip cookies.
Yup. I’m happy. And I know it. This is me clapping my hands.
