Happy Friday! #ThePositivityWave 59

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!

  • Running, my love, we are reunited! As I’m back on the first week of the couch to 5K challenge, I took the dogs with me and we had a perfect time. No thoughts of work, worries, whatever. It was just me, the babes, the music, and the ground under my feet.
  • Being finally able to start sending little somethings to friends makes me the happiest. Then they receive it and I cry. I can’t wait for the second wave soon…
  • If you follow me on social media, there’s no way you were able to miss I’ve changed my Kindle case 😂 I am in love, and I discovered some of my favorite people have the same one! It has a special meaning, it’s a beautiful tree of life, and the colors make me feel happy and calm. We need more colors in our life.
  • I haven’t bit my nails or the skin around them in over a week! It hasn’t happened in.. Never. It had never happened before.
  • I was complimented on my eyebrows. I am serious 😂 I guess when you walk around with a mask on your face and giant glasses, people only have two options; your eyebrows or your forehead, and my forehead is pretty boring so…
  • Listening to Maybe You Should Talk To Someone by Lori Gottlieb helps me be more thankful about what I have instead of wallowing about what I don’t have. Hearing about some stories, I am reminded things can always be worse. I could think everyone is an idiot, like John does! It’s very therapeutic and both a hilarious and heart-breaking book.
  • I confided in someone about something that really scarred me, and a weight was lifted off my chest. I am still learning to stand on my own two feet, but it felt so good to have someone say what they really think of me and what I do. Then I broke my Internet connection by sending too much love through Whatsapp 😂

That’s it for this week! Take care, enjoy the little moments, and share the love!

  1. So glad to hear you and the puppies got out for a run. There’s nothing better than that feeling. Oh, and I missed seeing the new Kindle cover. It’s gorgeous. Kind of envious of that. I need to up my game. 😉

    But seriously, NOT biting your nails is huge. It took me years, years I tell you. Of course, I probably took up doing something else instead. Ha! Ha!


    1. I had no idea the dogs would enjoy running with me! I’ll make the most of the first weeks of the challenge to keep doing it, before it becomes too much for them 🙂
      I didn’t think a new case would make me so happy, but I just love looking at it!
      I still haven’t touched the nails! The urge is here, though! UGH! xxx


  2. Wow, sounds like you had some great things to be grateful for this week. I am glad you are having some positive interactions on your outings, whether with your pups of people you pass. Enjoy your week Meggy.


  3. I used to have that Kindle case! I loved it! So pretty! I might have to go back to that one eventually. I have the same brand, but different flowery blue design now.
    Happy Friday!


  4. Sounds like all the love you’ve received this week from friends and dogs have been awesome. And you deserve all the love. 💛.
    I’m glad you’re enjoying running again and now the dogs can enjoy it too sometimes.
    My waves include:
    Changing up and lengthening my exercise routine and feeling achey but proud of myself.
    Having good chats with a work friend and making us both feel better.
    Love Island Australia! Just when I thought I’d get no reality tv, I see this new season starting!. It’s probably old and the winner has already been announced, and it’s total rubbish. But it’s an hour a day I can relax, blank out and enjoy the vanity and fame hungry of the people on the show.
    And always tea, coffee and cake. 😁.
    Happy Saturday Meggy

    1. I haven’t lacked love this week, for sure 🙂 I don’t know what came into me when I took the dogs to run, but it was fantastic!
      I am so proud of you for keeping up with the exercising!
      Good chats are underrated sometimes! We do need them!!
      I had no idea Love Island also happened in Australia! Enjoy your me-time! xxx


  5. That Kindly cover is everything! Love it!\=

    That eyebrow comment made me laugh. I am glad the eyebrows are no longer overshadowed by your lovely smile and all that 😀

    Have a lovely week, Meggy x


  6. Haha well that’s a compliment you don’t hear often :-). I actually asked to shape my eyebrows when I went to the hairdresser 2 weeks ago because I thought they would be noticed. Nobody complimented me though ;-). Aww Iris and Yuki seem very happy with your company and being out with you! All that’s missing is an icecream ;-). xxx
