A co-worker was passing my desk to get a bite to eat in the 10 minutes before his next appointment. While walking by he asked, “how’s your day going, Devon?”
“Really good,” I responded in such a way he knew I really meant it. He seemed surprised, “oh that’s excellent, I want to ask you more about that later.”
Hours later, he did remember and said to me, “earlier you said your day was going really well. Can you tell me more about that?” I told him I didn’t really have anything in particular to say to explain my statement. It was all a matter of outlook and the day I was choosing to have. I had nothing of any interest to say that would give a reasonable answer to why I was having such a good day. It was a good feeling. I didn’t have a specific reason and I didn’t feel like I needed one. It was all the little things, and at the same time, it was mostly the feeling of contentment as I couldn’t even name enough little things to justify the feeling.
This has been happening more and more over the last two years during my journey with the law of attraction. I find that as I am grateful and recognizing when I am content, the more reason I find to be happy.
I found out not long ago that someone I knew had taken her own life. It is hard to come to grips with the fact that this happens (and seems to be happening more). People have so many different experiences in their own mind. I am so thankful I have been working towards more happiness, contentment and awareness. Of course, it is an ongoing work in progress, like anyone (I imagine), I sometimes question myself and how successful I am with this goal. I do, fortunately, feel confident that I am making progress and have good balance. I wonder every day how I came to be so fortunate.
