1. Taking a 90-minute nap this afternoon. I rarely take naps; so indulging in one felt very decadent. I deeply appreciate that I have a flexible schedule which allows me to take care of myself – and I adored having two sweet pups to share the sofa with.
2. Seeing a brief bit of wisdom published in a real-estate magazine: “A successful sale means everyone walks away feeling happy.” Yes! And I would apply this credo to situations well beyond the exchange of goods and services…
3. Reading an article in our local community paper about a man with cerebral palsy who created a website that rates the accessibility of video games. (Before you judge, read the article.) At one point in the interview he stated, “I average between 50 and 60 hits a day now on the website. Of course, if you compare it to a site like Amazon, it’s not very much, but we’re slowly growing. Two years ago, I was lucky to get three hits a day.” As a fellow website administrator, I can absolutely relate to his statement – and I thought, how cool would it be if his site got pinged way more than 60 times, even if just for a day? So if you want to make this guy’s week, consider sharing the link to his site, and encouraging people to just click through to his home page. I think it would be so fun if we all lit up his stats, even if only for a little while.
