Celebrating Life: Surprises

Dreams are necessary to life. ~ Anais Nin

Life is full of ups and downs. Some surprises are great. Some are less desirable. I learned from The Gratitude Diaries every time we receive negative feedback it takes at least 3 – 6 positive feedbacks/experiences to cancel out the 1 negative. Our brains are still hardwired for negative reinforcement from when we were hunter gathers. This made the British Hubby and I realize the value of our Friday Celebrating Life routines. We are also looking for more ways to spotlight gratitude and positives in our daily routines.

This week the British Hubby surprised me with flowers for no reason. It was so unexpected. Not only did it brighten up my day. It brightened up my entire week. Every time I caught a glimpse of the blooms, it made me smile.

SkeinHerder’s Songs: Today I’m mostly listening to Morcheeba. They have a deep 90’s sort of groove. I just discovered this band last week. Have you had any new musical discoveries lately? Old or new? Pop them in the chat.

Burt has a new favorite sleep spot he’s grateful for. It’s soft and fluffy. Just perfect for a kitty.

How are you celebrating life this week?
