Day 117

The end of my day has turned into a bit of a nightmare. Hmmm, I think that’s too dramatic.

The end of my day has turned into a big ol’ headache. It’s made me feel so annoyed that I can’t even recount my day without bundles of anger clouding my reality. Anger that just wasn’t there in the first place.

Today’s drawing topic; sunshine. This was the craziest topic that I have encountered during this challenge and it’s one, quiet frankly, I didn’t want to tackle. I found a single reference picture on Google and attempted to make sunshine. It worked. The irony is, without sunshine, I can’t actually take a photo of it. Tomorrow is another day and hopefully I can share sunshine with you then.

I really don’t feel like recounting the half wins of the day. Some things got done, some things didn’t. I cleaned. I drew. I practised French.

The sun-shiniest part of my day was when a friend said… ‘bonne nuit’. I know that he doesn’t know how to speak French but he found out how to say good night, just so he could say good night. Just thinking about it makes me smile.

I think it’s important to remember that sometimes the little things can make the biggest difference in someones day. A simple compliment, a friendly smile, a helpful hand or even a single word could be the difference between someone being sad or happy.

If you need an encouraging word; I think you’re fantastic and the world is a better place for having you in it.

Light and happiness to all.

I'm on a life changing journey to 40. There will be ups, there will be downs. I'm like a roller coaster but with more agoraphobia.

    1. Thanks for your comment, JoAnn. It’s so easy to think that we need to do grand gestures to make people happy but when you don’t know what’s really going on inside someones mind, it really can be as simple as a small kind word. I was glad to be reminded of that yesterday. I hope you’re having a most wonderful week filled with smiles.
