After I’ve had way too many bad days lately, what with hating my job and being sick as a dog and all, I appreciate a good day all the more. Today was one of those.
It didn’t start out too great, admittedly. My bike was locked in the shed and key had disappeared. Not sure what my housemate did to it in the middle of the night, but it turned out that he had taken it for some purpose and forgot to put it back.
I was fuming a little in the morning, walking to the train station and missing my train, but I forgave him later on, because he’s going through a break-up and is heartbroken. I didn’t want to give him any more grief and things like these happen. He didn’t do it intentionally, so I told him not to worry.
Then I had an appointment to open up a business account. My new job requires me to be my own limited company. I am the director, sole employee and sole share holder. Go figure. This is among the weirdest things I never thought I would ever have to do.
It was brief, which was the best thing about it. The business account manager was pretty nice and hopefully he’ll get everything sorted for me so I can get paid next month.
At work I felt quite productive, received useful feedback and I also seem to be ahead of everyone else in my team. I dealt with only two calls, which went really well and after work we had drinks with all the new team members on the roof terrace of our building in glorious, glorious sunshine.
This day is worth appreciating and considering how little we usually appreciate the little things, I feel the need to point it out even more. I’m not a very good writer when I’m feeling down for whatever reason. The frequency of my last few entries is testament to that.
I’m a much better version of myself (and not to mention healthier), when I am feeling good and positive things are happening. Don’t get me wrong, if something negative is going on I am definitely looking for the way out and don’t wallow.
Life’s too short to wallow and definitely too short to content yourself with something that is not going right for you.
So, today I am happy. And I enjoyed myself and look forward to tomorrow.
Since this is how I feel, I also feel inclined to write. It might not be my most riveting entry yet, I’m sure it ain’t, but I write and that matters. And maybe it also matters just a little that I share this.
I hope you had a good day, too!
