"Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens. Brown paper packages tied up with strings...."
I woke up humming this song, and i knew the day was gonna be awesome! It just felt like one of those days, you know, when everything in the world seems to be right. I could smell the rain, feel the faint drops, the cool breeze brush against my face. I wondered if anything could even come close to the subtle scent of rain. Right about then, a strong aroma of coffee hit me and a smile crept across my face, and i hummed..." These are a few of my favorite things....."
Now when i think back, i didn't really do much at all the entire day. Just went along with the flow, and for some reason i was cluelessly happy. First thing in the morning, i got some chocolate truffles from flurys, gifted by a dear friend. So that kinda temporarily quenched my lust for chocolates.
"Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels...Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles. Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings....These are a few of my favorite things"
I'm sorry. Now that i've started, i cant seem to stop singing. Thank the lord that you cant hear me sing.
So i practically glided through the day, managed to clean my room (!! that sure made the mum happy !!), even completed my sad attempt at pop-art.
Donot. Even.Think... about commenting on her nose. I'm still a little sensitive about that. I ended up making the poor thing look like a kitty with just one teeny curve!
Don't you just love the lyrics! I do. That reminds me, I have to watch The Sound Of Music again. Although i tend to watch only the first half every time, I'll make it a point to finish it this time.
Sooo after about 381 words, i realize I've scrabbled a load full of rubbish on this post. But it made me feel better...so who cares ;)
Moral of the story: Stay happy and your otherwise monotonous day will work out just fine. I'm sure you can come up with atleast 10 reasons to crib about right now, instead, try thinking about 5 that cheers you up. And go do one of them right now. Trick your brain and get those "happy hormones" pumping.
And as Maria says....
"When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad"
PS: If you've managed to go through the entire post, i want you to share one thing that never fails to cheer you up. It might just help me one sad day. If you think it's silly, go anonymous!! Although me thinks, the sillier, the better :D
Till then, for those who wanna sing along with me...
