Small celebrations

Sometimes it’s the little things:

  • Getting to 125 degrees on my bend at physical therapy (turns out an ACL tear makes bending your knee really difficult!).
  • Hearing my physical therapist tell me I can drive.  Finally!
  • Seeing the smiles on students’ faces as the lightbulb went on during math today.
  • Feeling the sun warm my skin and dry the puddles after the torrential downpour earlier.
  • Tasting a perfectly brewed cup of coffee as I begin a stack of grading.

The little things count!  I just came across a quote the other day, and it resonated with me: “Happiness is not one big thing.  It’s all the little things put together.”

Have you been looking for the little things each day?  How can we choose happiness?
