Time: 7PM (post shower)
Action: lotion application
and I thought how is it possible that this little act makes me so happy everyday? It might sound pathetic, but it does, the 5 min post-shower-lotion-application makes me really happy~~~ I dunno… maybe I’m weird . And then I realized that there are so many little things that make me happy everyday. Things like
- waking up rested
- morning coffee
- a long nap
- a good workout
- a movie that makes me think, like Blue Valentine
- chat with a good friend
- receive/write a email from a good friend
- a clean home
- chocolate souffle like this one
maybe they are all small things; maybe they only give me 5-10 min of happiness, but they sum up! If someone asks me what do you need to be happy? I’d say nothing. Of course I want many things, but even though I want them, I am not sure that once I have them they’ll make me happy. What I am sure is that these little-everyday-things do make me happy~~~ So instead of wanting more of things that probably make me happy, why not just let these little-everyday-things happen?
I finally made a new breakfast!!!
two clementines with a wrap filled with LC, pumpkin puree
and scrambled egg whites
I worked in the morning (TA duties). For lunch I add some bok choy and brown rice noodles to the chicken soup
Look the snow storm we had last night.
I went to the gym, surprisingly the gym was packed! Look for outfit prepared for the snow
For dinner I made a veggie stir fry with tahini-miso sauce
simple sauté onion, carrot, cabbage and mushrooms with oil, and add a sauce made with 2 tbsp of miso + 1 tbsp tahini + 1 tbsp mirin.
as dessert: steamed kabocha! I love this! I think my favorite kabocha is the one that has yellow-green meat (I don’t this pic does not reflect that) instead of orange because it is less sweet and the texture is more like yam.
Q: What’s your everyday happy moment?
