The persuit of happiness...

So, I was pondering, actually, lets face it, racking my brain trying to figure out what to write about today! I was on CNN today and after reading that Spitzer's call girl was tied to Girls Gone Wild, Ooh, shocking, I know. Then I came across another article... Awaken Your Joy. I had a few minutes so I started to read then it hit me... today's topic... Happiness and Joy. To often I get bogged down focusing on the negatives and dwelling on the bad things that my days become ho-hum. Well, I say, "Not today, it may be raining outside but it's not going to bring me down!"
So, here is my list of things that made me happy so far today:

Bug not falling out of the crib
Not needing to hit the snooze button
Carrying Bug into the den first thing and snuggling with her before the day starts
Having a busy day ahead of me
Those thoughts only you know that make you smile
Seeing Bug walk around this morning in her unzipped footed pjs w/ one foot out
Snuggling with the dog before getting out of bed
Funny emails
Civil emails with my ex
Black bean pizza for breakfast
Singing "5 Little Monkeys" in the car by request
Not being the crazy "my child needs to stay clean" mom
Being asked if I watched the play-in game last night
... and being able to answer, "Yes"
Every time my phone vibrates... get your minds out of the gutter!
Friends... new and old
Black bean pizza for lunch (two pieces total)
My instrument working well

And you know what... its only mid-afternoon. I am having a pretty good day!
