My first response to my sister’s above prompt was to get all … “didn’t you read my last post about being overwhelmed – where’s the happy victory dance in that I ask you?” …
but then I consciously decided NOT to be all doom and gloom.
(I’ve helpfully included this image of what doom and gloom may look like from a window if you were feeling particularly moody)
And I thought really long and hard about it. And THEN I slapped myself a few times and took a good look in the proverbial mirror. What I found was that I had a superbly wonderful happy / victory dance just recently.
It was the night of May 30th and all through the house,
I skipped and I whistled – not at all like a mouse.
I danced near a table and spun onto a chair,
because I knew May 31st soon would be there.
My 7 year anniversary with my gorgeous boyfriend. Seven fantastic ( and sometimes overwhelming – can’t forget that) years! Wow. I was joyful. I was excited for the date we had planned – which was AmAzInG.
You know … I love that when I read his text messages I can hear his voice and so often it makes me laugh out loud. And I love that when I text him, he understands what :)? means and it makes him laugh. So that was the second happy dance. When I got out of the car after checking my mobile and seeing his reply “you made me laugh out loud” … I did another happy jig step shuffle as I walked toward the house.
And because there are no clearly defined rules or contracts signed when we started this #blogjune deal – I’ll lovingly bounce back the topic to you as per requested sweet sister. Tell me, what’s your recent happy/victory dance?
