Wednesday Thoughts

What I'd like to do today is share with you some things that are making me happy. I feel like life is stressful right now for me but I'm also optimistic. It's the second half of the year and I've been reassessing and thinking about goals I want to accomplish by the end of the year. One of those goals is more inner peace. One of the best ways that I know to do that is focus on happy things - things that make me laugh, things that uplift, and basically anything that chases away the grumpies.

First of all, over the weekend, I saw this headline shared by the Ann Arbor news on Facebook.

As is my way, before I read the actual article, I read the comments on the link. They ranged from defensive to hilarious. This was my favorite:

Something else making me happy is this picture:

What song is that cat playing? Who is he/she playing it too? Who made this painting? I don't know any of the answers but I know I like it.

This cat feeling the music is also pretty good:

Once again I don't know who made this picture. And by made, I mean took this photograph of a cat floating in space playing a synthesizer.

Another thing making me happy? This.

That's how I would feel if someone put a giant plate of cookies in front of me right now.

What's making you happy today?

Happy Wednesday.

What's making me happy is your blog. The first cat made me thing of Schroeder in the Charlie Brown cartoons and how he always got lost in the music and ignored Lucy in the process. I like the cool/warm weather instead of the hot muggies we usually have this time of year.

Synthesizer cat is best cat.

Two things off the top of my head making me happy...the first was learning about a friend of mine who is "oil pulling" (yes, I had to Google it, too) and realizing I will NEVER do that, and feeling that confident in a life choice made me happy. :) The second is this list ( making me happy!

Cookie Monster's face is so perfect!! Love that guy. Painting is making me happy lately, as is *nerd alert* the new chapters that were added to the Pottermore website (and being a Ravenclaw and getting access a day earlier than the rest of the houses). Guh. Such nerd. Much dweeb. (I'm totally ok with it, though, and that makes me happy!) Also sunshine and chocolate.
