Conscious Friday: How was your good day?

With her daddy's baseball cap and sunglasses (notice they are upside down) and my bargain red shoes on, she asked her famous question.

I spend most of my working days alone in my office. I could easily work twelve hours a day, everyday. I admit that there are days that I have to really take long and deep breaths and accept my job, accept my job responsibilities and accept, accept and accept.

One perk of my job is that I work at home full time saving lots of money and spending such quality time with my family. The disadvantage, I'm totally cut off from the physical presence of others. Yeah, sure, I have the telephone and the internet, but I need and gladly find out-of-my-home presence.

However; my daughter, Jannah, a three-year old energetic, loving and vivacious girl that often surpass my expectations when using her imagination, always has a way with words (one of her father’s attributes). After working 11 hours one day this week, Jannah came to me and said, "Mommy how was your good day?" I laughed and said, "My good day was wonderful, sweetie!"

So today, consciously ask someone, "How is your good day?"

Happy Conscious Friday!

We had a lovely good day today! I love Jannah's way of putting it. Years ago I decided to stop using the term 'bad day' as there isn't really such a thing, it's just a day. But actually I think Jannah's right, everyday is just a good day! I think I will start using her expression too.

She sounds a very special little girl :) I love the upside-down sunglasses, that's how sunnyboy wears his as well!
