Make Your Day

Make your day. How? Get yourself excited about something that is important to you. It doesn’t have to be a big thing. Little things can make exciting projects also.

For me it was going to the knitting store today and picking up the last of the baby things I knitted. A baby hat, sweater and leg warmers. It’s adorable. And I took some old wool and a knitting pattern and asked if it could be worked out. Yes, it could. That is something to do at night when I watch tv with my husband. The other thing I’m knitting on, a vest, takes concentration, so that will be done when ever I get a chance in my office. Or when I know no one will bother me.

Another thing I got excited about this week was a writing project I’ve thought about for three weeks. How to get into the head of my character. He is dying, he is young, and he is male. I finally figured it out. In order to be in his head, I have to write in first person. Now all I have to do, is do it.

My granddaughter’s baby shower is this weekend, and that’s exciting.

I passed my California driver’s test and that too is exciting.

My exercise program is going well, and I’m excited about that also. It’s long overdue. I haven’t done any exercise for a long time. I used to swim for an hour and walk for an hour. I was much younger.

Now, I’m just happy to sit in my chair, to be around my family, to read, knit and write.

So, make yourself happy. Do something you love.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
