I have decided to make a very conscious effort to focus on all of the positive things in my life. And even on my worst day, there still has to be one thing that made me smile or made me feel good. It might be a thought, an event or even a phone call. Most of my entries will be brief - a "feel good moment", if you will! Please feel free to leave any comments you have (unless they're bad - there is no negativity allowed here!).

August 4, 2011

The thing that made me happy today was the interaction I had with a nice old man in the elevator.  He was already on the elevator when it stopped at my floor and he started to get off of the elevator thinking that he had reached the lobby.  When he realized he had not gotten to the lobby yet, he just started to laugh and stepped back into the elevator - I couldn't help but smile with him.  Upon reaching the lobby, he graciously allowed me to step out first and extended his arm out as if to say "after you!"  I extended him the same courtesy as I opened the door to the building and let him go out first.  When we got outside, we both wished each other a pleasant evening!
