Several years ago, there used to be a weekly meme, hosted at orangeclouds.org, called Participation Positives. It was one of my favorite memes back when I first started blogging. The concept was that every Monday, participants posted a short list of things that were positive in their lives.
It’s a habit I sometimes think I should get back to, seeing as it feels like I’m generally viewing things from a very pessimistic world view. So, I have reinvented the meme as a quick little weekly feature.
Been a while since I’ve done one of these. Been a while since I wrote regularly, too. lol Still working on finding the time to do that again. Need to get more organized about things in general, I think. Or get some rest! heh. Haven’t had a real break from things since…December?
Anyway, starting the week on a positive note:
- Seaside Highland Games this past weekend. Beautiful weather, lovely music, old friends. Just a great time all around, despite the migraine that came with me.
- While at the Games, met a lovely woman who was selling her first book. Picked up a copy to read on the bus (of course!), but really was charmed by the author, whether I end up ultimately liking the book or not. It was just nice to meet such a pleasant, caring woman.
- VACATION! My usual vacation for my birthday and Halloween is coming up in ten days. I have a few things to do, but mostly, I just want to chill as much as I can.
- Getting myself a new phone. It’s not a total positive, since it’s now literally impossible to get a smart phone with a hard keyboard without a contract for a price I can afford. But, it’s still an upgrade and my current phone has outgrown my needs (also, I’m pretty sure I’ve semi-bricked it. oops).
