Happy Saturday #ThePositivityWave n°82

Welcome to today’s positivity wave! 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 woman 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!

  • A neat and colored to do list! I love the feeling of satisfaction I get whenever I check off an item.
  • Reviewing my own books. I love tours but the freedom of reviewing books with no deadline is wonderful! Look out for my review of the outstanding Victoria Park on Monday!
  • Work diary and personal journal… New and very welcome!
  • Law & Order SVU marathons. Well, they’re great except for my sleeping routine as I stay up until two or three in the morning!!!
  • New books! I couldn’t resist any longer and had books come to be from the UK 💕
  • Extra-long T-shirts. I hate sleeping with bottoms (too much info? haha!) so I’m thankful I have a nice range of T-shirt so I don’t have to sleep naked!
  • Pet photos everywhere. Nothing cheers you up more than a cute furry face.
  • Cake.
  • Did I mention cake?
  • I mean, homemade cake… SO GOOD!
  • Great walks with the dogs. We went to a park to desensitize Yûki and Iris to … everything basically, and it was lovely. Yûki is still anxious but still enjoyed it, especially when I dropped the extra-long leash (I can always walk on it to stop her, I hate dog owners who let their animals go wild and run to others) and Iris was over the moon to see animals. She drooled at the sight of chickens 🤣
  • Galantine’s Day gifts that make life more colorful and happy 🥰
  • That time when you finish a book just before your Kindle battery dies!

That’s a wrap for this week! Stay safe, be kind, and take care of yourself!

  1. I love all your photos with Yuki and Iris. Nothing makes me smile more than seeing proud parents show their love for their furbabies. I also love crossing things off a to do list. I have even put stuff on after I did it so I could cross it off. 😂 Have a great upcoming week. BTW: I posted my Friday Positivity Wave today too. Friday’s seem to sneak up on me.


  2. It’s always fun to come here for a little inspiration and, of course, a few more doggy photos! Especially as we can’t have pets, I live vicariously through everyone else’s. Oh, and journals? You had me at coloured pens. I love doing my Hobonichi diary and scribbling random stuff on a new page!


  3. Loving the photos of Yuki and Iris and I’m glad they are enjoying their walks.
    Of course there has to be cake. Mine wasn’t home made but still delicious.
    How lovely to get Galentines gifts. That is the perfect time to celebrate friendships.
    My happy moments include a gorgeous bunch of flowers I got for Valentine’s and the smells of the flowers that waft up as I sit next to them.
    Plenty of reading time and like you also enjoying my own choice of books with no deadline to review.
    Hope your week is good Meggy
