Happy Friday! #ThePositivityWave 23

Welcome to today’s Happy Friday! My remedy against feeling down is to make a list of all the good things in my life. It can be anything. Really, anything. The smallest gesture from a stranger can change your day, if you open your eyes. Now, I am a pessimistic and I need daily reminders to look for the bright side. Maybe you are too, or maybe the state of our world is weighing on you. In any case, here’s your shot at some happy things!

The POsitivity wave without c`

I’ve decided to cut my blogging break short, but I won’t be back on social media just yet… So what happened that made me happy when I was gone?

  • I received the best compliment about a review I wrote in French from the editor of a wonderful author I love. It’s always been harder for me to write in my native language, so getting such a warm email from someone so talented made me really happy and a bit proud!
  • Night walks

  • Getting bad news, giving myself a little time to digest them, and then move on. I started making new plans a few hours after a massive bomb that wrecked what I had in mind for the rest of the year. But here I am. I am (mostly) healthy, I have my babies, amazing friends. I adjust and start again.

  • Binge-watching The Handmaid’s Tale. I usually prefer to read the book first, but I wanted a break from reading (yes, I know, it happens!) so I picked the show and really enjoyed it. As much as you can enjoy something so dark and twisted!

  • Tweaking the blog’s design just because!
  • Quiet moments. I hadn’t realized how loud it was on the Internet. Not checking my phone every five minutes, not forever scrolling Twitter, gave me space to enjoy my own company, my own life, and to breathe.

  • Chatting with my friends. Despite the distance, I have the best human beings a message away. It changes everything. From a “Hello” to some puke talks, we go through it all.
  • Trying new hobbies! Thanks to my darling Kate at The Quiet Knitter, I’m gonna try and use my hands…

  • The calendar telling me summer is almost over…
  • Reading for reading. No review, no deadline, no blog post. Just me and a book.

What’s made YOU happy this week?

    • I started season 2 today, gosh, it’s such an addictive show, and the actress? Wow! I’m just disappointed in one little thing, but you can’t have it all! I don’t think I’ll read the book now, as I have the images stuck in my mind and it’s so good I prefer to keep it that way.
      I have no idea what I will knit, probably not much haha let’s hope I am not totally useless at this!
      I hope you’ve had a great weekend, my friend xxx

    • Aw, your comment makes me very very happy. I am glad we are able to chat at all times ❤
      I love the promises held in that moment when you choose your next read. It's so exciting.
      I can't believe I haven't caught up with Suits!! The cast has finished shooting and I spotted the final promo for the four episodes left. I can't wait to binge-watch!
      Chocolate cake! I should bake one!

  3. Good to have you back Meggy, always great to read about your positive experiences during the week! I just finished The Handmaid’s Tale and I wasn’t bowled over. I suspect this is one of the few cases where I would prefer the show over the book.
