Daily 5 - Day 8

Today was another challenging day. On the beautiful and smooth and restful days, you can choose any one of a myriad of options to make up a list of 5 things. It's a whole lot harder to find 5 things on the days that feel like they've beaten you up. And when you have several of those days in a row, when you're trying so hard to focus differently, to experience life more joyfully and positively, it can actually become quite discouraging. To be trying so hard, and then just feel like life is working extremely hard (and effectively) to test that resolve for change.

So, here are my 5 for today:

  1. Re-stocking my stash of peanut m&m's
  2. a moment of clarity while journaling early this morning
  3. an evening that has been quiet and peaceful
  4. a coworker and friend being back in the office today
  5. a smooth grocery shopping trip tonight (the grocery store is huge, usually kind of dirty and disorganized, often has stock issues, and I refer to it as the "soul-sucking mega store" so when grocery shopping goes quickly and smoothly it is something to make you smile!)
