Today I love things working out in life, like that I got a ride home from the shop when I had to leave my truck there this morning, thanks for that my friend. I love that the fireplace is turned on now and that means warm evenings when the air is less than ten degrees Celsius outside. I love that turning on the fireplace is always one of those things where I have to read the instructions every year and every year after reading them I think, “Well, yeah, that’s simple, why didn’t I remember that?” but every year all I remember is that it was simple. I love that last night there was chicken ginger soup and it was just what the doctor ordered for my cold. I love that the doctor who prescribed the soup was actually my eye doctor, and I’m okay with that.
Today I love people who see themselves and their choices as important and are strong enough to accept that others will not always be immediately happy. I love when people claim that your happiness is their primary concern, because they then must watch you be happy and either waste their lives denying that happiness or accept that they’ve made a mistake and move on. I love that when I look around me I can find people who have experienced someone making them unhappy in the name of wanting them to be happy, and have managed to get past that. I love strong people who have the courage to stand and say, “Maybe I’m wrong and you’re right, but I’ll make this mistake in the pursuit of happiness and that is always a pursuit worth engaging in. I love that courage is a lion and there is some lion in all of us if we can just bring ourselves to unleash it.
Today I love that I have an e-book now and maybe my library will stop physically growing at such an alarming rate. I love that I have plans to create a library space at the cottage for actual, real, honest, paper books and that I may place a wee little library there as well, out by the road. I love that I was upset by the end of Divergent because there was still an eighth of the book left that was all extra printed stuff after the ending and I thought I had a bunch more story to read and all of a sudden it was over. WTH? I love that because it made me laugh at myself for being upset.
Today I love sipping coffee by the fireplace while I write good words to the best of my ability.
