Wednesday Smiles

If you have it in you to do so, please tell me what's made you happy or grateful lately. The world can always use a little more sunshine.(If it can't I definitely can!) I see some ppl lurking here; don't be shy. Feel free to share something, even if you never pipe up again. :)

I mostly post fannish things in this journal, but I think it's easy to forget that there is a real person behind the fic and the Bones commentary. Same goes for other people, of course. So I'd like to take a minute to acknowledge our humanity.

If you'd like to do so, please tell me something that made you smile this week, no matter how small. Could be the snuggle your dog gave you on Monday, the song you discovered on Tuesday, or the way your significant other smiled at you today. I've been posting these since December 2007. If you feel up to it, please respond—here, in your own journal, or elsewhere. Feel free to post more than one thing and/or respond to other comments.

Why am I doing this? Because I think it is far too easy to get caught up in the stresses, big and small, that we all experience. Being able to focus on one positive thing, however small, can give one a valuable sense of perspective.

Why Wednesday? I figure a little mid-week cheer can't hurt. :)

1. Game of Thrones returns in April. The show has its flaws, but I LOVE it, and I love Jaime/Brienne. Can't wait.

2. It's been wonderful to interact with old LJ friends once again. <3

3. I just started the October Daye urban fantasy series by Seanan McGuire, and I think I'm going to love it. It's been on my TBR list for ages, and I finally bit the bullet.

Ooh! I'm doing a GoT rewatch right now...actually, never saw past the third season, so I'm really excited to catch up. I'm halfway through S1 right now.

GoT rewatch/catch-up is a fantastic idea. How come we can't just watch TV all day?! *g* Love your icon, btw. Brienne owns me.

I took a break from GoT to make way for the new Daredevil season, but yeah, GoT celebration soon to commence!

Brienne wasn't my favorite in the books but I love what they've done with her in the show. Kicking ass, taking names, being so real.

I got the email to say you'd updated and thought, 'Ooh hope it's Wednesday smiles!' and it was, so that made me smile for starters!

It's been another crazy week here but I delivered a talk I've been doing regularly in work again today and was less nervous than before. That's a very good thing! :D

Hee! I'm pleased to have fulfilled your wish, TT. <3

That's awesome re: your talk. Public speaking can be nerve wracking; congrats to you. If you don't mind my asking, what was your talk about?

Oh nothing special really, just an information talk about the services we offer for students in the counselling and wellbeing dept I work in. But yeah, always had a fear of public speaking so it feels good to be conquering that a bit :)

That's really awesome; it's a fantastic feeling to become better at something that's hard.

*hugs*

So many students experience depression or other serious issues; it's terrific that you're helping get the word out about help that's available to them. Hope you're proud of yourself for doing something that's a little scary for you. :)

LOL apparently my phone decided to post this twice!

Ben's been coming home and getting his homework done GREAT and RIGHT AWAY when we've gotten home every day!

I'm sick (and snot-nosed and wheezy), but I don't feel awful!! So, yay!

It's my husband's yearly week at a conference, and we've been out of the house on time all three mornings so far!

Next fall we'll all be at the same school, so all three of us will only have to go to one place, together.

Our dog is SO SO sweet.

tempertemper, it may be LJ: mine double-posted too.

You had many victories to celebrate last week. :) Good for you. Hope you are feeling better this week.

That it is "Wednesday smiles" time again would be one. That my cat was curled up next to me, snuggled up under my chin, when I woke up from my nap is two and maybe that my bowling wasn't too bad even though my knee is still killing me could be three. It's been a lovely week so far.

<3 Congrats on a good week! Hope this one is equally lovely.

I've been spending most of my lunch breaks working on a fanfic - makes me feel good because my "writing time" usually consists of staring at a monitor until I get distracted, and this time actual words are getting written.

Hooray! I know how that is. Yay for productive writing time.

Late for this week's Wednesday smile or early for next week's smile :) This week's Wednesday smile would be that I was well enough after the flu to start exercising again and next week will be looking forward to a long Easter weekend and Purim - double holiday!

Ugh, the flu. I'm sorry you had it but glad you are up and about now. Enjoy your double holiday!
