It seemed like 2011 was a rough year for lots of people...including me.
2012 started out even shittier, at least for me. A few of you know the details, many of you probably don't. I won't go into them. That's not what this blog is about.
At the end of 2011 I had the idea that maybe we all needed to try and find something positive each week to blog about and share with each other. A little something positive to share with our friends. I never really mentioned it, and more importantly I didn't start doing it myself.
Well, hopefully today is the start of my New Year's resolution...to find something positive to reflect on, even if in the midst of a storm.
Last night I decided to text a friend of mine from college. We used to be really good friends. We still are. We're just the kind of friends who only see each other every few months. It's unfortunate, since we are only about an hour apart. But, I invited her to dinner. Thankfully, she was able to change her schedule so she could see me.
It was so nice to be able to sit down and talk with a friend...face to face. We had some laughs, talked about what was going on in our lives, and caught up on old friends. (She does a much better job of keeping in touch than I do.) And at the end of dinner, after I walked her to her car, it was so nice to have a hug from someone I know cares.
Don't get me wrong, I have some incredible friends here! And even if I may not do a good job of showing it, I appreciate you all more than I can say. But, there's also something about that face to face, not to mention that catching up with an old friend. I hope one day I do get to meet some of you face to face.
There's no sexual attraction there with my friend from college. It's just friends. And it was nice to be with a friend. What a great evening it was. :) I hope to do it again in the not too distant future.
Now it's your turn. What was your moment (or moments) of happiness today?
