I smiled because...

I smiled because DB's reference to "white gravy" (sic) has been duly noted, and it will be quoted back to him on a regular basis, as an adjunct to his famous line "There will be cheese."...

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because I had a real shiner this morning- walked into a door. When it happened I was immediately worried about my teeth (I am wrecking the nerves from bangs and clenching). That I bang my head and eye and immediately check my teeth, still makes me smile. But the eye is beginning to close up- it was kind of embarrassing in class, especially as it was a law class. - it's beginning to hurt. Still funny!

I smiled because I found a chocolate bar in my handbag and it definitely wasn't me who put it there

(Who says there aren't any REAL MEN any more?)

I find myself smiling most of the time, and more than before.

I am enjoying my life here in Zürich even in despite of the lack of some things I consider very important.

But I think I am reaching a goal I set to me way back.

Understand that happyness doesn't exist but the search for happyness. And learn to enjoy every moment of that search.

In other words, learn to enjoy the present and all you have right now, and not to be yearning for what you lost or what you don't have yet.

Very well said salsa lover!

Switzerland is good for the soul and I do smile a hell of a lot more than I did in London..
Plus the smell of fresh bread wafting through my village on a daily basis helps alot!

Re: I smiled because...

a few minutes into a conversation about a shot, containing sambuca and baileys, suddenly realised my colleague had never heard of this drink and thought I was asking about a very different matter . . . . .

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled today because I kept my promise to my son to pick him up from daycare myself after work (normally his Nanny picks up).

He was so happy to see me that he nearly knocked me over as he ran to hug me.

It's great!

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because I got to play ice hockey for the first time in 3 months, outside in gorgeously warm sunny conditions, with a shoulder that's still broken That is all.

Re: I smiled because...

I spent a few hours with a lovely friend, sitting in the sun where Byron stayed whilst penning the Prisoner of Chillion, enjoying the view of Lake Geneva, crocheting and enjoying friendly conversation.
