I’m sitting in my sunroom looking out at the rain gently fall on the lake. It’s been a tough week on all fronts–work, home life, worrying about the health of loved ones and challenges at every turn.
One of those weeks where you wonder what more can life throw at you.
It can seem almost overwhelming at times. What do you do to get through when life pours down on you?
During the last three days in Toronto, when I spent more than 12 hours in traffic shuttling back and forth between work and Joseph Brant Hospital, I tried to snatch a few precious moments where I could to forget life’s worries.
A short walk in the rain. Treating myself to a frothy overpriced McDonald’s latte.
I came home, hugged my children, slipped into my hot tub, then curled up with my daughters to watch a movie. My worries were still there, but I was home, and with the people I loved, and all of a sudden my problems didn’t seem as insurmountable.
This week’s #HappyAct is to find a few moments of happiness when life pours down on you. Here’s to a better week.
