You know what that means…!
1 – The Perfect Parallel Park. I had a situation when I needed to parallel park. This sucks! If at all possible, I try to avoid this situation like the plague. However, I totally rocked it and even did a victory dance after kicking ass!
2 – Finishing a book. There is nothing better than completing a book! Not only do you get the end of a great story, but you also feel like you’ve completed an amazing task. No matter how many books I read, I’m still incredibly satisfied to finish and add it to my accomplishments. I recently finished a book and, yes, I am sad it’s over, but I’m also very happy as well because I can move on to other great stories.
3 – The ‘After’ Part of Cleaning the Kitchen. I hate, hate, hate, hate cleaning dishes. I will do probably almost anything else than do the dishes. But, I DO like the way the kitchen looks AFTER the dishes have been cleaned. It looks like one of those amazing pictures that you find on Pintrest. Granted, it’s not like a million-dollar home but after I’ve cleaned the kitchen, in my crazy world, it feels like one.
4 – Pay days. Not the candy bar but the actual day that I get my money for all my hard work for two weeks. Granted, a large portion of my paycheck goes to bills but, I still enjoy having money in my pocket and the numbers on my bank statement jump back up to give me hope.
5 – Feeling sore. I recently went to the gym and started mixing up new exercises in. I’m more into cardio than I am weight-training. I DO weight-train just not as often as I do cardio. Cardio is about three days a week and weights are two. It’s great to have that day-after soreness. I feel like I really DID give myself a good work out. Plus, for me, it’s evidence that I was productive that day; that I actually DID something and I can FEEL it.
