Life can be hectic and It is so easy to forget the good things that happen during a week. That’s why I’ve decided to start doing a round up of 7 things that made my week, inspired by Jaye Rockett’s 10 happy things. So let’s hop right in.
- Two picnics in one week- I am a really big fan of picnics and to have two picnics in one week one absolutely lovely. One was for mine and a close friend’s birthdays and the other was a church ministry picnic.
- Washi tape- I got my first two rolls of washi tape this week, which was amazing. Washi tape is honestly such a great product and I’m so glad I got some.
- A clean bedroom- I had the opportunity to spring clean my room and it’s amazing how good it feels, after a long day to step into a clean room.
- A jog- this was my first jog in 2 months and I was surprised at how well I did. Not only is jogging good for the body but it’s also good for the mind. It just helps to clear and refresh your mind.
- The simple act of listening- at the picnic yesterday a man came up to where we were sitting and started talking to one of my friends. You could see that mentally he was not alright yet my friend still chose to listen to him and talk to him. I though this was so beautiful, you may hit realize this but sometimes someone just needs a listening ear . I am pretty sure that man has been mocked countless times but it was amazing to see someone who stood up and said no, this is not right. Someone who chose to be different from the crowd, who chose to care about someone who no one else cared about. I think the world needs more people like my friend. Don’t you?
- A simple compliment- today I tried a new hairstyle and someone complimented me on it. It’s like what someone once said: “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
- A stranger who believes in authentic photographs- at the picnic yesterday we asked a man to take a photo of us and the first thing he said was I don’t want to see any pouts or funny faces you young guys pull. What he said was so true, when you show your children pictures of you one day you want to show them good, authentic photographs not weird pout faces.
What are 7 happy things that happened to you this week?
This week I want to challenge you to not look at people physically but to rather look at the person inside. It’s amazing what you see when you choose to see the soul behind the body.
