While I was looking for Frank’s William Wegman Man’s Best Friend Calendar for this year (he gets it each year for Christmas), one of the things I found for myself was one of those tear off a day every day desk calenders. I’ve had some fun ones over the years like the Wild Words from Wild Women (2014 version) which was super fun. I’d mail them to friends when I thought they’d be appreciated and spread the love around just a bit.
This year’s find was 2014 Instant Happy Notes and I jumped on it because who doesn’t want a little bonus Happy in their life? So far it’s told me, “The door is wide open – step through to a brand new year!” and “Put a little fun into your life. Try dancing. – Kathryn Murray” (I do love a good office dance party so I think I’ll put that one in action.)
Weirdly, Friday’s message was timely.
I was having a rough day, feeling a lot of anxiety about many things and I pulled off Thursday’s message to see that. It was a virtual Gibbs slap and needed.
Look, I know I’m good enough just how I am but sometimes it’s nice for an unbiased third party reminder.
I don’t think that it will fix all that ails me on a bad day, but it can’t hurt to be reminded of good, happy things. Also, I’ve written a few notes on the backs of others to be mailed out to friends and I hope that they bring smiles to their days.
