three good things
Decided to take Gussie for a walk at dusk, rain having prevented an earlier one. Delighted to bump into Maggie May, her son and their dog who had the same idea. Made for a very convivial and relaxed walk along the river as the sun set at 9.30
Gussie lay down on the carpet and slept soundly on her return (she is getting on these days, not as young as she was) whilst we watched the first episode of Good Omens. Gussie didn’t move until towards the end when one of the characters announces ‘The hell hound has found its master’ at which point Gussie gives an energetic wag of her tail. Immaculate timing Gussie, and greatful to you for precipitating a little company and laughter.
Finally, reading Harari’s Sapiens. Have slightly changed my view on the book which I dismissed on attempting to read it at publication. Grateful to Harare for his explanation of developing cultures and the attempts to reconcile the dichotomy of freedom and equality.
A Gratitude Journal is just a simple way of recording and appreciating the good things in life.
Research shows that keeping a gratitude journal leads to higher levels of alertness, happiness and positive emotions
as well as a stronger immune system, lower blood pressure and better sleep.
