August Happiness Challenge -- Day 12

Today's happiness -- Reinforcement. I had a bad day today. Personally. Two of my oldest friends, John and Mindy, disappointed me. I was hurt and sad. I couldn't concentrate. I couldn't work. 

So I called Henry. He wasn't picking up. Then I called my oldest friend. She didn't pick up either.

I started to watch a movie. I wasn't paying attention to it.

Then my best friend called me back. She listened to me, advised me, distracted me and then she made me laugh and laugh. 

A few hours later Henry called. Concerned about me. With all of his problems, he's worried about me.

I felt terrible, and then I felt validated as a person and as a friend.

Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world.
