Yesterday, after dropping us off, hubbs went straight to the office, my watch shows 7:35am. Instead of going to our usual breakfast place, I thought we could just hang around the park before sending the little guy to school. I ask him if he’d like to sit on the bench under the tress, he nodded and say yes. So here we are, having our light breakfast, playing with construction machines, watch this beautiful video of his current favourite song.
The weather was glorious, the grass seams gleaming with shine after a good rain the night before, & the sight of my kid running about, well & healthy, I felt deeply content just to experience these sights for a few minutes. The thing is, the past few days had been rather hectic. Hubbs was under the weather, our careers requires more & more of our time. Our flexibility were practically limited by Ju-Hann’s school/daycare schedule. It’s very tiring and challenging to juggle it all, and therefore, it is sometimes very easy for us to lose sight of how blessed and lucky we are at most times. When I feel slumpy at a bad day, I just remind myself that it’s just one bad day, while other days had been so blessed and joyful.
I learned that happiness is in fact a daily commitment, & you might not be able to control the traffic, or your boss’s mood, but you can try to make the best of it. After all, life is made of ups & downs ain’t it?
