I am on the mend; and while I’m still only up to about 70% health today, it’s a big improvement from the feeble 40% or so I was at yesterday. Yay progress!
Today I had enough energy to sit in a recliner and flip through magazines; and I saw this ad in one of the catalogs I perused:
As a kid, my family always referred to this style of shoe as “flip flops”; to us, “thongs” were a type of rather uncomfortable underwear.
So when I saw this line of copy, I literally laughed out loud.
Juvenile? Perhaps. But it felt wonderful to smile, and to laugh. (Even if the laughter turned into a small coughing fit.) I forgot how much I missed smiling; I forgot how desperately I need happiness in my life every single day.
Perhaps a bit of childish humor is just what the doctor ordered.
It feels good to be getting back to a joyful self. 🙂
