Wednesday Thoughts

Well, here were are again. Another glorious Wednesday. And it's mid-January, the most wonderful time of the year. Frigid, dark, icy January. I've been trying to lobby to move Christmas to late January, to make winter more bearable, but so far it's not taking off.

When thinking about what I would write about today, I thought that because it is kind of yucky and depressing outside, I'd share with you some things that are making me happy today. So here they are:

This picture. I don't know who made it. I just know I like it.

Twitter. People are so funny on Twitter. I just lie in bed at night, reading Twitter on my phone and laughing my head off. Here are some recent tweets that have made me laugh out loud, for real. Not in that fake "LOL" way. I would never lie to you about a LOL. That's my promise to you.

"I think our society really pits women against each other"
"I thought that first, Karen."
- @DCpierson

"Opened these packages of fruit snacks very quietly so maybe a part of myself wouldn't hear." - @rorynotroy

"If you're not thirty, flirty, and thriving, then you can for sure get out of my face." - @smoneall

"Really hope That Awkward Moment does well in theaters so I can get a green light on my script, This is Seriously Way Random" - @bridger_w

My hula hoop. It just feels like summer when I bust out my hula hoop and hoop my way through a favorite tv show. If you have one, you should try it!

Yoga. I went to a yoga class at the rec center last night and for the first time ever, successfully meditated. I am so bad at that. I have tried meditating many times, but I just can't shut my mind down. But last night the teacher gave us some techniques for doing so, and I was actually able to do it. Not for the entire meditation time, but most of it. It was almost a spiritual experience. I'm looking forward to the next class!

This comic I saw on Facebook. I don't know who made it. I laughed for longer than you would think though, when I saw it.

What's making you happy today?

Happy Wednesday!
