Got up, had breakfast, went to work. There was one parking space left when I arrived. Is this what my life has become – repetitive with worries about parking spaces? I used to think there was more to life than that.
On the positive side, I have started to find myself laughing and smiling more. You are supposed to get happier as you age and I had been waiting for it to kick in, as the last few years have been hard work. I may be lagging behind the curve (nothing new there) but it looks like I’m finally becoming happy.
The customer who has been irritating us for most of the week with unrealistic offers has finally decided to order something. He still tried to do a deal until we had gone to the post office (it closes at lunchtime on Saturdays) so we won’t be able to send it until Monday. By Tuesday I expect he will be writing about something being wrong. Some deals just have an aura of doom hanging around them.
One bright spot in the day was that we put some second-hand display cases on sale. After a bit of a lull they have started selling and we sold our last three during the week. The owner checked in the overspill stock room (as I call his garage when talking to customers) and found a couple more, which I added to our eBay listings around lunchtime. One of them sold twenty minutes later. It always feels good when that happens.
It is rather unnerving to hear of you laughing and smiling. Will this become a habit?
I’m hoping it is just a phase I’m going through.
It is quite difficult to write if you are happy.
That might be my problem . . .
Yup, gotta go with Lavinia. I need at least one good belly laugh a day, and not to be greedy, multiple smaller laughs and chuckles. It helps immensely.
It seems to. 🙂
I love to hear that you are feeling happier. And in the winter! Just think about when spring arrives – you’ll be positively giddy!
Yes, it’s a worry isn’t it? An overdose of joy . . . 🙂
Good to think of you happy
I like it, though I am not sure what is causing it . . .
Same as Lavinia. The last two years have been a slog for all of us, and you have had a lot to deal with.
Laughing and smiling more is always good thing, Quercus. They are powerful medicines, and I am glad more of both are finding their way to you. 🙂
🙂 Thank you.
