At work, we have a thing called “huddle” every week, where our department shares work highlights, upcoming projects and also do some group activities and share personal stories. This week, we went around the huddle and shared what we are grateful for. I said that I was grateful for my four legged baby brother, Arko. As you all know, I am dog obsessed! I have only been working at my new job for about five weeks, but EVERYONE knows my love for dogs, hehe!
Things I have discovered so far this long weekend:
Wohoooooo! My baby bro Arko turns 9 today! Happy Birthday to my precious little baby!
I bet that by the title, you probably think I am writing about how my dog has separation anxiety… Nope. The opposite actually.
I am starting work tomorrow and am already feeling separation anxiety from Arko! This is so sad and a bit embarrassing but I am really going to miss the bugger. I have always been obsessed with him, but these past 8 months of being unemployed, I have become even more attached and obsessed with my little baby! Ok, he is not so little, he is almost as tall me in full length and weighs close to a 100 lbs, but still! He is little to me.
Today was a good day. —–cue the Ice Cube song… hehehe
Today was one of the best days I have had in a long time. Reason being, I woke up happy and full of energy. I have been feeling a bit down the past couple of weeks, especially with the stresses of finding a job. The endless job searching, cover letter writing, and interviewing is tiring. Today, I woke up unexpectedly energized and excited to start the day.
So last night, I had another internal reminder (as I often do), that I am dog obsessed. With my dog, but in general too.
It really is the small things in life. Sometimes we spend so much time chasing big dreams (which you should keep doing, of course) or focusing on all the negativity in our lives, that we don’t slow down to appreciate the small things. Below are 5 small things that put a smile on my face. I encourage you to take a few minutes after reading my list to think about small things that make you happy.
