1. One thing that's not making me happy is that I'm sick again. A cold that's morphed into bronchitis, maybe? All I know is that I'm stuffed up and coughing and sneezing and miserable and grumpy. But what's making me happy is that my boyfriend is being super sweet about it and checking in with me, asking if there's anything he can do to help and just being my hero. That makes me very happy.
2. While it feels like July has flown by, I'm happy to be closer to fall. I am looking forward to the cooler temperatures, the leaves falling, the Halloween candy, and just the feeling that time is moving forward. Having a bad day? It will pass. Got a cold? It will pass. Stressful week of work? It will pass. Time moves on. It heals some wounds, lets us recover from bad decisions, gives us perspective, and ultimately moves us forward in life.
3. Yesterday, I caught the end of one of my favorite movies, so that made me very happy. Kudos to Renee Zellweger, Hugh Grant, Colin Firth, Helen Fielding, and everyone else who brought Brdget Jones' Diary to life. She remains one of my all-time favorite characters, and I adore the movies and the books starring Bridge. That makes me very happy.
