Esther and I went to my parents house for a visit today. She got to ride around on all her trucks and bikes. They found ice patches and even some tracks in the snow. I stayed inside and filled my face with chocolate chip cookies while I watched really bad tv shows on MTV.
I turned to my cousin who was shopping with me and asked “are these to weird to wear in public?” Her response will forever make me happy. “If it was anyone else asking me, I would say don’t buy them. But for some reason weird looks really good on you.”
Esther got to pet an opossum and a bird. We went shopping and she loved the bookstore. My heart was so happy to see her run full force for all the books. She also got to play on a piano which is her favourite instrument.
"I wish I’d partied a little less. People always say ‘be true to yourself.’ But that’s misleading, because there are two selves. There’s your short term self, and there’s your long term self. And if you’re only true to your short term self, your long term self slowly decays."
2014 was my year to be happy. It was the year I was going to find the silver linings in life and make sure I am always noticing how happy and healthy I am. I found I have hit a bit of a rut. I find myself sitting on the couch more and just not about the positive. This is my way of noticing and trying to change that.
I will tag a photo a day with #100happydays. It will be a picture about something that made me happy that day. I will do this for 100 days.
Esther fell asleep watching Mickey Mouse videos on my phone.
I have been trying to keep her awake all day because she hasn’t been sleeping well at night. I thought that if she was super tired tonight I could have her in bed at a decent time. Girl can’t party apparently though. Now shes going to be even harder to get to bed at a decent time. My plan was ruined.
