It’s that time of week again! We’re half-way through Thankful November and it’s hard to believe I have about 6 weeks until I open Happiness Box 2022.
I had to put the contents of Happiness Box 2021 into a scrapbook box; I got to July 2021 and couldn’t keep going anymore. 2021 was a merry-go-sorry year and I just wasn’t into finishing it. Maybe at a later date when I feel a bit more removed from certain memories. Thanks, Christine, for listening to me and reminding me that it’s my decision; if I don’t feel like doing it right now, I can always go back, no big deal. She’s right.
However, I know 2022 will have some challenging moments. I’ll quickly scrap those and move on. In 2019 and before the pandemic hit in 2020, I used to make layouts that I’d put in the Happiness Box and would help me save time. I started doing that again, especially with special moments lately.
These layouts made him verklempt. I’m really grateful for him. We flow; we have the same dark humour, we can laugh at one another, we finish each others’ sentences, we can sing random song lyrics to one another and we know what the other one is talking about, we can even finish the lyrics. Our souls align and it’s a lovely feeling. I love him and he loves me. It’s such a beautiful feeling and I’m glad I met him in March. Although I wish I would have realized things sooner, I’m glad his old co-worker gave me his phone number and we reconnected. This has been the highlight of 2022.
I’m also thankful for friends, family, and both jobs. What are you grateful for today?
