Actually, most everything is making me happy this week. It's been a good week.
1. I feel like I am doing better with the general chaos and clutter of everyday life. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed from all the magazines I have that I haven't read, all the blog posts I haven't yet written, the bills I haven't paid, the decisions I haven't made. But little by little, I am getting things taken care of. Junk mail gets taken care of sooner. Bills get paid as soon as my paycheck is in the bank. Decisions are getting easier. Maybe I'm just getting more clarity on what it is that I want and don't want out of life, so I know where to spend my time and energy. That just feels good.
2. After spending years struggling to make ends meet and just get all the bills paid generally on time, I'm now in a place where my financial struggles are more about wanting to pay off debt faster and put more money into my savings and investment accounts. I feel successful. I feel like I'm moving the right way in life. I am so grateful for this abundance!
3. It is February in Kansas. And it's been in the 60s and 70s for the past week. I wouldn't object to slightly colder temperatures or a little snow (no ice, please!), having this run of amazing weather means I get to let the cat out. He loves the back patio. He sniffs at everything. He lays in the sun--and not that indoor sun that gets diffused by the windows--it's the real thing! When he's outside, he seems so happy. That makes me happy. I am so lucky to have that guy in my life!
