Happy Happy*

It is another rainy day in Portland but I am determined that the weather will not get me down.  I am starting my day with a positive attitude.  My problems and challenges are still sitting at the kitchen counter with me, but I am approaching them with a bit of a John Wayne swagger mixed with a “win the day” mentality.

Here’s a great, short  video to get me going.  Please take a moment to watch.  You will be glad you did.

The Holstee Manifesto

A cup of fresh coffee, reading great posts (thanks my blogger friends!) my sweet dog Ginny nearby and a plan…what more does a girl need?

Happy happy Tuesday from Portland!

 

*Years ago at my sons’ winter swim practices there was a little girl who would chant “happy happy” when exiting the warm pool and walking quickly toward the lockers.  It was 40 F and she had only her “happy happy” to wrap around her.

I have said “happy happy” many times for uncomfortable, scary or hard things in my life.

I lost track  of that little girl.  I hope that where ever she is today she is “happy happy”.

  1. Thank you for the video reminder and I like the “happy, happy.” Today I will be “happy, happy” as I do the dishes because I have dishes to wash and shared the food that made them dirty with my family around our table. Thank you for the reminders!

  2. These messages of hope, change and improvement are the messages I write about through health and lifestyle modifications. They are important messages that need to be repeated often. It is only then that we will convince ourselves in the reality of our dreams.
    Great post. 🙂

  5. I love being in a pool on a rainy day. There is something special for me to be immersed in water and have the raindrops falling on me as well. I enjoyed the Happy Happy blog. Yes, I believe we can ‘choose’ to overcome the surroundings by a positive ‘attack’ beauty or attitude.

      1. True. I love listening to the rain when I am cozy in my bed! I have had to turn on the fan the last few nights for my Golden Doodle as the night temps are warmer. Happy Thursday!
