Today’s Three Blessings – The what’s and the why’s?

1. Mica’s portrait.

My sister’s dog is the most wonderful, little, fluffy bundle. Sensing I wasn’t myself, she licked my face and then sat perfectly on the floor. It was a photo opp I couldn’t miss. It wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t given her the attention she was waiting for.

2. Best juice ever.

It was called a “Kale Cleanse”, you can guess what sort of ingredients were in there, right? It was delicious though… a mix of tang, sweetness and total health in a cup. It tasted so great because it was grown organically and made with love. Well worth the walk at lunch time.

3. I got a hug from my boss.

Yes ok, this can be creepy and classed as sexual harassment if you’re in the wrong office. But it’s not like that, at all.

I asked him why, and he said “Because I don’t know how you’ve been able to work so hard and for so long on this project. And I think you just need one”. Such a surprise and really nice to come out of a genuinely lovely person’s mouth. I didn’t expect to be thanked this way, but it was a lovely gesture, regardless.

The Three Blessings practice was designed by Dr Martin Seligman, to help re-focus our thoughts on positive experiences, rather than the negative ones we tend to wallow in.
