No need to be anybody but oneself.

Wednesday Smiles (a day late!)

I kind of want to complain about being sick and passing it on to my mom and my daughter, but this isn't supposed to be a post for bitching. *g* OK, let's see. Quickly, before M. stops being distracted by the pile of board books I plopped down next to her. Happy things:

1) M. has found a new game: taking off my glasses and then trying to put them back on. She doesn't come close to getting them back on, and I'm convinced she's going to break them one of these days, but I'm thrilled that she now understands that what comes off CAN go back on.

2) I ran on the treadmill a few days ago -- and didn't die. And I pushed! I credit squats for what little aerobic capacity I have right now.

3) I wrote. I WROTE. Nothing special. But I wrote, stealing a few minutes during M's naps. This is a big deal for me, so forgive me if I do cartwheels over here for days.

Please tell me what's made you happy or grateful lately. ♥ The world can always use a little more sunshine.

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. :)
