Tea Talk: A Good Day.

reading time: ca. 1 min


"What day is it?" asked Pooh.
"It's today" squeaked Piglet.
"My favorite day" said Pooh.

 

 
Good morning everybody. Sit back and sip your tea while i share my thoughts of the day with you.

As i was going for my morning walk today i came across a chimney sweep in full livery - which at least in my country is considered a good luck omen -, and so i thought to myself: This is going to be a good day.
Then i realised how silly i am. Why do i think that a "good day" is defined by a man with black garb and a sooted brush?
Every day can be a good day. 

I don't want to sound all "just love yourself and keep floating in your little happy bubble and everything's gonna be fine" - but i do want to stress that you are the judge after all. Not a chimney sweep, a four-leaved clover or a black cat that crossed your path. You get to decide whether your day was a good day or not.
Of course, not every day is going to be "good" as in free of challenges. Challenges are nothing negative. They simply test us and remind us of our own strengths and weaknesses.

In all objectivity, today wasn't exactly a good day. My key got stuck in the door lock twice this morning and i spent almost 30 minutes trying to get out of and back into the house - and even worse: with no breakfast in my tummy yet! So that was not much fun. 
But then everything turned out well, the door lock finally opened and i got in to leap at my Mango Banana Chia breakfast which tasted all the more delicious! 

Random side note: in case you were wondering, right now i'm sipping on a cup of hot caffeine-free coffee. It is made from chicory - which apparently is also called "coffeeweed", i had no idea! i like it best with little to no sweetening and lots of soy milk :)

Also, this weekend i've been switching up my morning walk routine this weekend. (ever since watching Wah's and Weylie's vlogs, i want to go hiking real bad!) As much as i cherish routine, i also love exploring new trails. So instead of doing my usual walk around the lake, i decided to take an unknown route through a little forest nearby. And who knew - i came across two red squirrels who were chasing each other through the undergrowth and up the trees!

Remember, in order to run smoothly, you need to take breaks and breathing pauses every now and then. And sometimes you simply need to change the road or take a slightly different course.

Listen to this everyday :) It's the best day of your life! Every day. No matter what.

That's it for now. I hope you're having a great day - make it the best you can :)

Lots of love



Maisy
