Day 24 - I need to count my blessings

I awoke early this morning with a feeling of serious first world problems dread.  How much longer can I keep this up?  I made my coffee, ok coffees, and took the dog for a walk.  I came home and poked around the kitchen:  I made pizza dough, emptied the dishwasher, and made hot cocoa for my 2nd child.

While still struggling with the pookies, I messaged my good friend from work.  We made plans for a mask-wearing , six foot distancing walk for tomorrow.  My spirits started to rise.  I went for a run.  I then did some post-run yoga and took the world's longest shower.

When it was time for work, I set into my latest new obsession:  The Science of Well Being course from Yale.  It is free, my favorite!  I am currently in the process of rewiring my brain.  My homework is to spend the next week practicing exercising utilizing my top four character strengths in different ways.  Challenge accepted!  

My top four strengths are: Social Intelligence, (not buying it) Appreciation of beauty and excellence, Love of learning, and Curiosity.  

Finally, I watched a couple of webinars.  Now I'm off to sit out in the sun with a glass of wine.  Life is good.  The blessings are many!
