What makes you happy? I mean really smiling from the inside happy? According to a radio show I just listened to, it is social interaction and not simply money or other “things”. Makes sense to me.
How often do you get asked “what have you been up to” and you can’t exactly say? Happens to me at least once or twice a day. I think that and the weather conversation are about the same and it drives me batty. Anyhow, I feel like months, years, hours, minutes evaporate before my very eyes and I don’t know what happened to them or what I did. It dawned on me that when I am in a social setting i.e. workshop, coffee clatch, really fun party, etc where there is stellar social interaction and great communication I can remember all of the details and I smile a big smile inside. So, Jimmy Choo’s may give you a temporary high but the meat of it is that you need to get out or skype or whatever it is to mingle and just “be” around other people. Oh, and it helps if they are like-minded.
So it makes sense that instead of exercising I enjoy a steaming mug of tea with my new friends at Starbucks or Hereghty’s. I certainly won’t get in shape but my mental health will be stronger. And a visit to my favorite bead store, Ornamentea works too. I felt like a million bucks after visiting with my pals yesterday but I didn’t have to spend a million. (I confess it was hard not to go crazy). And if I did start exercising with people imagine the grin I might be sporting throughout the day.
I am an independent soul and I crave my solitude most of the time but I need to break more ground and push myself out the door physically and mentally. Hmmm. A wine club sounds like a good idea…….
