The August Happiness Challenge–Day 4

We interrupt our usual bookish posts to bring you the following:

Welcome to Day #4 of the AUGUST HAPPINESS CHALLENGE–where participants post each day in August about something that makes them HAPPY! The goal–to slow down and take time to appreciate the good things in life. Feel free to join in the fun!

At work today I was telling a story to the co-worker/friend who sits next to me–and I made her laugh so hard she had to take off her glasses and wipe her eyes. (When she takes her glasses off, I know I’ve made her go past the point of no return!)

I’ve worked in places where I don’t have anyone who shares my sense of humor, and that can be a very lonely feeling. I’m very grateful that for the past several years I’ve shared an office with a group of people who I also regularly share laughs with–and that makes me really happy!

How about you? What’s making you happy today? Please share!

I love books, reading, writing, cooking, eating, reading while eating, and sharing thoughts about all of the above–plus a bit more! I usually post about topics relating to books and literacy during the week, and then participate in a variety of non-bookish memes on the weekend. Please feel free to join in! Some random things about me– –I have multiple bookshelves in every room of my home except the bathroom. They’re all filled to bursting. They help to make my house my home. –I have two cats who I love dearly, but who I definitely do NOT dress in human clothing. Ever. –I’ve never had a cavity. –I make a mean spaghetti sauce. –I’m a newcomer to yoga and I love it. –My day is not complete without a little chocolate.

  1. A good laugh and camaraderie at work is happy!

  2. Good for you! Working with people who don’t “get” you can be lonelier than being alone.

  3. Having a laugh with others is so important. How lovely that you gave this gift to someone else and brilliant that you work with people who ‘get’ you.
