So easy to miss them and pass them off without giving them due consideration.
Especially for those of us going through difficult times.
This morning after running my ‘life is surreal’ moment which today had the added bonus of lying in bed wondering why the dawn seemed to be more advanced than it should be before the alarm went off. Yup! You’ve guessed it the alarm had failed to fire into action.
This of course shot me into action in a way which was alarming not only for me but my neighbours, as my bemused brain decided it was bin day – which it isn’t, that’s tomorrow – so I was up in my tracky botties and jumper rushing about in the nearly-dawn-dark and about to trundle my bin down the alleyway only to stop short as my two remaining braincells met, shook hands, embraced and threw themselves into action! Hi Caroline – today is Wednesday! It’s work-at-home day. It’s NOT bin day.
Gosh my life is SO exciting!
But I digress! Small triumphs! I suppose I can count this morning’s escapade as a small triumph as I just managed to stop making a fool of myself!
On Sunday I had one of my “I’m on the radio” small triumphs as Terry Wogan again read out my email on his Sunday show. I do rather well on his programmes! So my small triumph is that TW finds me funny!
On Monday I had a small triumph by making the staff laugh as I struggled to deal with a problem well out of my reach. Hanging a clock on a hook a good 3 feet above my head and out of reach, kept those in the vicinity amused for several minutes!
And also a bit of a boost to do better.
Am I competitive? You bet!! Despite pretending I’m not!
So life is full of small triumphs, some so small they can easily be missed! And each triumph is a gem in each day. Not all the same ‘size’ but nonetheless important.
Here’s to your small triumphs, dear reader. May they make you smile fleetingly as you navigate through your day.
