Stand Up For Happiness
I worked on a yard project today in the rain. Well, it rained on and off. I was planning on attending an outdoor Jazz and Wine festival here in my community but once the rain began it didn't seem to make a lot of sense spending the money to buy tickets and go in the rain. Going with the flow, I ended up really still enjoying my day and appreciating that though I seem to not be able to control everything in my world, I can certainly still come out smiling. It just takes standing up for happiness no matter what comes your way. And, while working in the yard I played my own jazz on iTunes radio and sipped a glass of Pinot Grisio. My wife and I built a masonry wall fountain and a wooden arbor for growing vines over it which will add so much character to our backyard... and we got to spend a nice day together.
