What makes my day is appreciation. It’s not necessarily what happened, but when that sense of euphoria hits, you can guarantee, you feel so happy about it, because you’ve seen loads of good things about it.
Not that you can’t see bad has happened, or that things can be better.
Here’s an example-
today I still began doing what I do to earn a living at 8am. I got to take home the ‘bosses’ car because I worked til 12.30am, so instead of 3modes of public transport, I drove. So I got to sleep in for an extra hour. Specially good since I’ve been sick.
We made new arrangements, so I met the ‘boss’ in the city to hand back the car at 4.30-5. So I got to go home early.
during my day, I now have a camera (theirs) I can use to take photo’s of the small fry I look after. It’s a new Canon, with a stabiliser (not that’s supposed to mean anything) and mulitple points of focus. I got some AWESOME photo’s of him. And lots of cuddles all day. I got to sing, eat and have a lie down. I got to read Harry Potter since he slept longer than me.
due to the early arrival home, I got to see a spectacular sunset. I spoke to my cousin-before she retreats for her own 8days of silence(last chance for now then!) What good instincts I had to catch her.
the BF came home, seemingly early, and we went out for dinner.
I don’t care how many comments I’ve gotten on each and every photo, but I appreciate the nice feedback, and the opportunity to share them. I’m so in awe of some of the art being out out there, and feel a little bit in some people’s league.
It bothers me that people complain this (RB) is some kind of popularity contest. I’ll take my thrills where I can get them, but I still have a life!
Let the good outweigh the negs.
I may not be the best photogrpaher in the world, or the coolest, or have the trendiest subjects or deepest depth of field. but if good things come along, I’m going to do my best to say thank you.
