Had dinner with friends on Saturday night, and there was much laughter. So my smiles this week are friends and laughter; they're among the best life has to offer.
ETA: There's doc_3 & tempertemper fic to be had this week, and while I haven't read either yet, I'm confident I'll be thrilled by both. I would never have known either of them except for fic, and that would mean I was two friends poorer.
Friends and strangers alike, "May you live all the days of your life." (Jonathan Swift)
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. 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. :)
Please feel free to comment even if we're not "friends."
I don't always get a chance to respond to all your smiles, but I read every single one. They all leave me feeling a little bit lighter than I did before. So thank you! I hope you're all having a good week, my friends, and if you're not, I hope it improves.
