my favorite feeling recently

by Joanna on October 8, 2013

I missed my bus stop the other day after work because I was thinking about all the things I was grateful for that day.

  • How it was so nice to sit outside at happy hour
  • How it was great to laugh with strangers at the bus stop when a bus pulled up and we didn’t know what it was and the bus driver looked at us like we were crazy
  • How it was so silly when my boss and two coworkers broke out singing a Backstreet Boys song in unison
  • How it was so nice to have Mike’s brother visit the weekend before

“Hmm, I like this. Maybe I should use my evening bus ride every day to think about things I’m grateful for.”

“Oh, wow, look at how beautiful the sun is shining on the Cathedral. Oh, I have some really great friends that I love.”

Next thing I knew the doors closed at my stop and I was still perfectly comfortable in my seat.

As I got off at the next stop, I was so happy. I love getting lost in feelings of joy and gratitude. It’s peaceful. I like losing track of time because I’m so caught up in the moment. I felt connected to myself and to the people that I love. Ironically, I felt grounded.

That was my favorite feeling in the last couple weeks.

This post was inspired by a prompt from the amazing, inspirational Danielle LaPorte and her Desire Map for Life Column

P.S. Another great bus ride.
