Just Another Day

Today has been a productive day at my house.

It’s raining. The kids’ bus was 20 minutes late. And it’s “cold” — a whole 64°F (all my Utah friends are rolling their eyes and laughing at me right now). Normally, I would be in a pretty foul mood under these circumstances.

But today is different. Today I decided to be positive.

Today, despite the cold, wet, and late start, I have been able to read the news, attend an important meeting that I nearly forgot about (thank you Google Calendars for the reminder!), work on a new piece of Art, study Russian, admire the subtly-changing colors of a new Season, write a short blog post, and take a couple cell phone photos. And the day isn’t over yet.

Never mind the fact that my “To Do” list is about a mile long. “Productive” is a relative term.

My good friend taught me to “Celebrate the small victories”, and I intend to do just that.

So be happy today. Be productive. And celebrate. Because today is another good day.

  1. You seem so much more diligent in your language study than I am in mine!

    That’s kind of amazing that the school bus would be so late. Does it wait for kids instead of just moving on if they aren’t at their stop?

    • The bus was delayed that morning due to a rain-caused traffic jam. All the parents were were joking that the bus forgot about our stop!

      As for language, I learn best when I learn constantly; so I try to study at least a little every day.

      • That makes sense. I’m always surprised how much of an impact rain has on the flow of traffic. I suppose it’s good to be cautious though. But it sure is annoying when you need to get somewhere! 🙂
