I spent part of the day with an old friend of mine (well, she is young, but I’ve known her for a long time). She has a new husband and a new baby I’ve never met. I had fun talking to Lori, her husband Steve and little Kate (a happy, bouncy baby… my favourite).
I spent a couple of hours with my daughter at the fitness center… swimming. It was fun, but something about swimming makes me very tired.
I came home and listened to something that someone very wonderful gifted me with earlier this week.. a hypnosis audio that has proven to be quite helpful.
Despite my day, I’m feeling a little sorry for myself. My mind keeps wandering off to that happy place (you know, the one where we are sitting at the beach, pushing our toes into the warm, wet sand on a sunny day) the hypnotist has me pick out…. I yearn for the happy place, but in odd moments it seems as though it should be unattainable. A good part of me does not believe it is unattainable. (This is what we call a double negative, yes? A good part of me believes it is attainable. There.) Did I distract you enough?
Then I play, “Feeling Good“, play the hypnotist audio, and everything seems reasonably right with the world. (Note to self: Don’t forget the happy place exists.)
