Yeah for Friday ! In France we have a 3 day weekend, getting Easter Monday off. I am going to need it, as it will be my recovery day after my half marathon on Sunday afternoon. Excited but not fully ready (are we ever ?).
This week’s Friday Five theme is ” good things”. Thanks again to Courtney at Eat Pray Run, Cynthia at You Signed Up for What and Mar at Mar on the Run for the appropriate, seasonal, positive theme! Don’t forget to check them out !
I have been a bit stressed at work. A lot stressed at work actually, but I always try to see the positive side of things… I am a half glass full kind of person. So I looked back over the week and picked 5 good things that happened, made me smile, warmed my heart, made me feel good about myself. Its sometimes the very small things that count the most :
1. Helping my daughter fill out an application for a summer job. It reminded me of my first job, and also reminded my that even if they are growing up, they still need us once in a while.
3. Connecting with past colleagues. I hadn’t seen several colleagues for a while and we got together one evening this week for a drink, as one of them is leaving the company. It was great connecting with such wonderful people.
4. Mastering technology. We have installed lync in my office and it is so great. One of the functionalities is calling your contacts through the computer (through internet)… and it works great instead of sending an email. So much more personal. Of course it has many other functionalities that I am also discovering but the fact that you don’t need to pick up the phone, select a contact, look for a number. So practical.
5. Peppers and asparagus. I have eaten roasted veggies every day this week. With fish, meat, eggs… pure heaven.
What good thing happened to you this past week ? Are you a glass half full kind of person ?
