Today was Day 8 of the Happiness Project. Click here to find out more about the Happiness project. I am actually starting to notice a difference. Believe it or not, I find myself looking for the positives in each day. Often times I find myself thinking “oh that could be one of my three thankful items!” then I realize I already have three for the day. The three things I am thankful for today are:
I have a really fun photoshoot coming up and yesterday night I found a guy selling 3 vintage suitcases for only $20! I think they will be perfect for the shoot so I am really excited! Remember these posts are on a delay! See more of the photos at www.LindseyPortugal.com!
2. Gluten Free Ice cream
This goes against my diet but we were at whole food yesterday and I found some yummy chocolate peanut butter ice cream. Omgoodness, it was such a wonderful treat last night. It had been quite a while since I had had ice cream. Ivan keeps ice cream with gluten in the house (the only thing in our home with gluten) to keep me out of it.
3. Everyone who donated to my Race for Alzheimer’s
Today I went to pick up Ivan’s and my shirts for the Alzheimer’s walk this Saturday. First, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who donated to this cause. This cause is very close to my heart. People in my family have had it, and people in my extended family have had it. From the response I received, it seemed that many other families have been affected by it as well. I am excited to walk in the race and I will be proudly wearing my shirt as well as the names of the individuals that people have provided to me.
I went running this morning with Ivan. It had been a little more than a week since I had gone running. Therefore, I had to start with week 3 again on the couch to 5K program. I was on week 4 before (but I was struggling). It was nice to get out and exercise with Ivan again!
Spent time in prayer today and studying the Bible. I am always learning things.
Random Act of Kindness:
I spent some time chatting with a friend about something she needed to talk about. I just took time out of my work day to be there for her.
Day 8 down, 22 days to go!
