It is already September, and I, for one, am excited about it. It is my birthday month, an awesome excuse to stuff cakes into my mouth many times.
I will be going home this month. There is a staycation on the agenda, and I took one of this month’s Mondays off. Things are looking rainbow-ey for me.
My last week’s goal was resting and recouping. Now that I think about it, it feels like I kinda cheated. I mean I rest all the time. It is my hobby. It is my nature. My tombstone would say “Born to RR”. It’s like saying to eat a cake as a goal, except of course if the cake is Vienna’s Sacher-Torte.
So yeah, my bad, and because of last week’s not-a-goal goal, I put extra effort to come up with this week’s. I was deciding between adapting Erika’s (Happy Birthday Erika!) gratitude attitude and Nicole’s budget envelopes (I certainly can make do with some money management this month; when I was a kid, birthdays would fatten my piggy bank, now it is the complete opposite). But this evening, a conversation with Fafa nudged me that I could be happier. Much happier, If only I would pause and spend some time “thinking” about it, so I choose gratitude first.
This week I want to write four things I am grateful/happy about just before going to bed.
I think it is an attainable goal, especially with all the cakes eating that is going to happen in the near future. More importantly, I believe this goal will make me a happier geek by the end of the week.
At this very moment, I am grateful for the pouring rain outside my window.
