Sun In The Sky…you know how I feel…

Hola lovelies... I hope you are all well... How is your October?  Rock-tober or Shock-tober?? 
I'm having a great month but... I work hard at feeling good.  I make the choice to be happy.  Because it really does boil down to that.  Choice.  



THINGS THAT DO MAKE YOU (ME) FEEL GOOD
(random order)

  •    Being in love. 
  •    A cold shower.   (hahahahaha!  NOT related!... cold showers are to stimulate metabolism and soothe adrenalin overload)
  •    Being told 'Lonely Planet' wants to publish your photographs.
  •    Having your photographs be used by professional performers.
  •    Capturing exactly the image you wanted to capture and it turns out to be better than you visualised.
  •    Visualising a goal and achieving it.
  •    Leaving for work late but getting there early because you got every single green light..
  •    A productive day
  •    Deciding not to feel guilt if the day wasn't as productive as I would have liked. 
  •    Giggling.
  •    Dancing
  •    Performing
  •    Listening to drums
  •    Playing drums (Taiko)
  •    The thought of getting back to Bikram Yoga! The heat, the sweat, the pain...LOVE it.  Miss it.
  •    Still having rock hard thighs despite not having exercised for close to a year due to adrenal fatigue.
  •    The beach.
  •    Hugging my children
  •    Being hugged by my mum
  •    My husband's cooking!  My mum's curries!
  •    Hearing your loved ones laughing
  •    Hearing a baby laughing
  •    Laughing so hard your face hurts.
  •    Laughing at yourself.
  •    Laughing for absolutely no reason at all.
  •    Telling a stranger that they're beautful
  •    Having a stranger tell you that you’re beautiful.
  •    Laughing at an inside joke.
  •    Laughing in my sleep (yes.  apparently I do)
  •    Waking up and realising you still have a few hours left to sleep.
  •    Waking up and seeing my husband smiling at me
  •    Making someone's day
  •    Seeing someone walk past wearing a piece of jewelry I made.
  •    Making new friends and just clicking
  •    Being able to support and love your friends
  •    Spending one on one time with your girlfriends.. a whole day spent lunching, laughing, talking.
  •    Completing a cryptic crossword in under 10 minutes.
  •    Being able to solve puzzles.
  •    Painting my nails different colours
  •    Buying gifts.
  •    Buying shoes!
  •    Wrapping gifts.
  •    Watching the sunset.
  •    The sun on my face.
  •     Getting out of bed every morning ready for another beautiful day... puts spring in your step...


What makes you feel good?
ps. I realise this may be all too feelgood for some but this is an exercise in positive doing. The choices I make.
pps. this is not a full list!  It's 3am and I'm just typing what comes to mind!

OMG! We do think alike. That's my quote - Whenever someone cribs and whines I tell them "Happiness is a choice! Choose it!" :D

Needless to say, you look rock-tastic!!!!

LOVE you and your positive light.
