Whew, what a day.
It was actually a pretty good day… but when I got off work, we were running some errands and my car croaked. Left us stranded. We had to call a tow truck, but then the truck didn’t have room for us, so a friend picked us up so we could meet the truck at the car shop. While at the car shop, someone rear-ended my friend’s car. No one was hurt and nothing was damaged, but it was a series of unfortunate events and the cost of the whole ordeal was pretty stressful. Plus, who wants to be stranded with a 50 pound bag of dog food in the back after a day at work?!
On the plus side, my car (named Bonnie) is getting all fixed up and will hopefully be back in working order in no time.
What an ordeal. (that totally turned out okay and better than previously worried)
So today’s nudge from Effy is, “What do you do to foster joy? What’s your version of ‘flinging glitter in the trenches?””
To be totally honest here, I don’t consider myself to be a joyful person. That’s not to say I’m not very happy, but I am introverted, reserved and quiet – as well as suffer from the chronic resting bitch face. I’m also easily depressed and anxious. If I were a Sim, I would be the Loner/Moody Sim. That said, I foster joy through things I love, people I love, art and music as well as tarot/oracle and crystals.
Lighting some sage and holding crystals can make a bad day okay. Also, plants – especially sunflowers. I also find peace in nature, hiking in beautiful places. In my town, there’s a conservation area that is heavily wooded and nestled above the Missouri River. It’s a pretty site to behold and it feels like one can see all of Kansas from there.
That brings me joy.
I’ll leave today with something beautiful:
Even though it has died, it is still glorious. I plan to honor its death via art. That will be incoming, but for now he’s in my broken car in the shop. 😦
