I recently started a book called The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. It is great!! I’ll talk more about it tomorrow but I just checked out her blog and wanted to share herpost about symbols of your life. She, also, declared it Word-of-Mouth day so I’m spreading the word about her blog.
Love this! My symbols are:
Sunflowers – I’m a Kansas girl and they instantly remind me of home and the farm. Symbolize my roots. They, also, symbolize foolish passion. When is passion not a good thing?
Rabbit – Everyone in my family has an animal or collectible thing. Mine are rabbits and unicorns.
Drama/Comedy faces – for my acting and directing
Duck – As a reminder that I need to duck when sh*t is being thrown at me.
Old fashion feather ink pen – For my love of writing and classic literature.
Suitcase – Two reasons 1. My love of traveling 2. Bundling up my baggage and telling it to hit the road.
Bamboo – It bends easily but is harder to break. I need to bend to life easier.
Phoenix – Because life is about constantly picking myself back up and starting over again. I can continue to find a better me.
I’m working on catching up on my blog but I started watching my cousin’s kid so I’m spending today between the library and the pool. After we get up from watching cartoons.
Took kid(age 9) to University with me then Pan.era for Hot Cocoa and cookies then library for some books.
Me: “Don’t tell your mom that I spoiled you today.”
Kid: “Don’t you worry! I won’t! She might not let me do it again.”
Hee! Hee! Of course, his mom and I did so many crazy things growing up that she seriously won’t care. Besides you get what you pay for and she ain’t paying me. Honestly how lucky am I that he wants to hang on the patio reading with me for awhile before we go to the pool?
