So, I've been a negative nancy lately, which is really why I haven't been posting. Or in the mood to do anything creative. The end of school was a couple weeks ago, and not only did one of my favorite co-workers get promoted to a higher position in a different division of the organization (meaning I'll no longer be working with her), but two of my favorite kids graduated the program. I didn't deal well with it at all. Our little classroom is/was like a family. I really didn't realize how sad I was going to be, so I was overwhelmed when it came time for goodbyes. And I'm not good at goodbyes anyway.
And then, there are just lots of other things in my life I'm not happy with. Before I got my job, my main source of unhappiness and frustration was NOT having a job that I love. And now that I've got that, other things that I never even realized bothered me before are starting to really trouble me. It's no fun.
With that being said, I think you can decide to be happy. So that's what I'm going to do. And I'm going to focus on some things making me happy right now.
When we lived in Hawaii, we NEVER got to see our favorite bands play because they never came out to the islands. Obviously, now that we're in California, that's no longer a problem. I cannot wait for September.
I love that these are trendy, it makes me giggle. My best friends from home send me care packages from time to time, and the latest one I received had the two bad Larry's on the left in it, that they actually made. True friendship bracelets. I love my friends. And I made the one on the right while watching hours of Toddlers & Tiaras... ha!
My new planner.
I love organization. Enough said.
I really hope you've heard of TOMS. I'm a big fan. And I've been not so patiently waiting for them to restock or release some solid yellow classics. These will be on my doorstep on Tuesday and I couldn't be more thrilled.
Finally, this little fortune.
I was having a really rough day and for some reason, when I opened this fortune cookie it made me giggle. The next day, out of nowhere, my best friends called and asked if they could come visit. And I'm leaving in 5 minutes to go get them from the airport. How's that for happiness and good fortune?
