Good Morning, Good Afternoon or Good Evening!
I’m deviating from my normal poetry posts, but I hope you join me in a caffeine toast. Come on over, pretend we’re sitting around a table, in a cozy cafe or coffee house, watching the sun shine or listening to the rain drop against the windows. We hear the murmur of voices around us, as others catch up on years past or on yesterday’s events. By the way, this is very casual, no formalities, just fun and relaxing. 🙂
So, let’s talk coffee…what’s your favorite? I never used to be a coffee drinker, until a couple of years ago; with a little help from my friends, I grew to love any kind of lattes. I’ll also drink regular coffee, but it needs a little sweetness. ♥
Okay, you’re probably wondering if this post is all about coffee…well, not really…but it’s a great ice breaker, don’t you think? And just so you know, I’m not editing this too deeply…it’s as though we’re talking, you and I. 🙂 I felt like simply chatting and I also wanted to share a little something I experienced a few days ago…
I woke up feeling extremely happy. I know, very original. 🙂 For those of you who read my previous post, you know my family is happy about our daughter’s college graduation last night and beginning her next chapter in life. Then our son will be graduating from high school in two weeks and moving on to college in the fall, as well. So I do have reasons to be happy, but there are also matters in the mind to keep the worry meter running.
Regardless of all that is happening, I felt such a deep, physical and weightless sensation, not an everyday occurrence. It was like walking on air, waving arms and all, ready to shout out, “Hey, World, I’m feeling really happy today!” I can already imagine reactions! 🙂
Well, it happened; a very real feeling of euphoria and it was awesome! It’s really hard to explain and come across in somewhat of an intelligent manner, and one that is rated G. 🙂
But you see, my point is this post isn’t just about coffee and artificial stimulants; it’s about natural “highs” and how we can simply be happy for no apparent reason! Maybe in my dreams (that I don’t usually remember) I was thinking of one of these exciting events, which caused me to wake up feeling an extension of the excitement. Who knows?
However, can’t we be happy about the small things, too? Like noticing my hydrangeas blooming (thanks to hubby), enjoying the sunshine, receiving a complement from someone, getting a “kiss” from a much loved canine? 🙂 I believe even small miracles are all around us if we open our eyes to them…
I suppose I felt like sharing some inspiration, but conversations are meant for many voices, so I’d love to hear from you, if you have the time…have you experienced this before? Or do I sound absolutely crazy? 🙂
Well, thanks a “latte” for stopping by and with all silliness aside, I truly do appreciate all of you who visit my blog. Without you, I wouldn’t have made it to a year and a half of writing, reading, learning and making new wonderful friends! ♥
I’ll end now with a little “Happy” inspiration from one of my oldies…
“Your life will be changed and you’ll feel truly blessed,
When you look real close, you’ll find Happiness”
