Glass half full...

And so Day 2 begins. Yesterday was a fantastically full day with a lovely shift at work and a couple of great news phone calls. I thought to myself, if this is at all telling of what the rest of the month holds in store, I can't wait! I successfully checked off all of my boxes in my great spring cleanse spreadsheet and I even made great progress on my new kitchen apron. I went to bed with a smile on my face.

Today started off great! I had company for a little breakfast, made all my snacks for my longer than usual work day, and felt ready to face the world. With this bright eyed bushy tailed attitude, I got to my car only a couple minutes late to head to work. That would, of course, be the optimal time for my car to decide not to start. I tried to fight it but I was instantly stressed and the tension took over my next to perfect mood. I called on my person and of course he came to my rescue and got me to work with plenty of time to spare. Despite that knight in shining armor bit, I still felt high strung and stressed for the next few hours. Why does this happen?

I had to forcibly inform myself that this was not the best way to spend day 2 of my spring cleansing experience. Things were going so well and life is gooder than good- hold on to that instead. So I did. Simple as that. The remainder of my day is proving to be just as lovely as Day 1 because of it. I had come across some coworkers later on in the day and as they asked me how I was doing, I had no other response for them aside from "great!"

In celebration of this mini victory for optimism, I thought I'd share an adorable buy I came across a while back. I've never committed to buying it but the idea of it continues to make me smile.

Enjoy friends! Tomorrow is another day. Dear Mr. Triple A man- you'll be hearing from me in the morning!
