this is many years back in time now but i am still just as much in love with her blog.
It was through reading her blog posts that i first heard of poets that i today
highly cherish and when i think back now i also see that she has been one of the persons that
awakened my deep interest for poetry....
Odessa has also introduced me to such wonderful books, movies and music through these years.
Her reflections inspires me and very often i can deeply relate to what she shares.
In her latest blog post Odessa writes:
"I've also started keeping a daily to-do list of (at least) 2 things that makes me happy. Something like: write a letter, take a nap, walk to the library. Just little things. And I must say that it really does make a difference at the end of each day."
I find these words so true and important!!! It truly IS these small things that makes the difference at the end of each day.
I have a little notebook where i, at the end of each day, write down what these small things have been through the day. This makes me more aware of what it is that actually makes me happy AND it also makes it easier to both choose to notice AND focus on what that is good and positive in my life.....it makes me grateful.......*smiling*...
Today's happiness (so far):
-Not -24 celsius anymore..brrrr....only about -14 now
-"Kjøttmeis" eating at the bird feeders, i LOVE their colors!!
-Enjoying the lovely feeling of waiting for a parcel in the post....*smiling*...
-Drinking a cup of delicious hot chocolate together with a dear friend of mine.
What has yours been today?
