I just woke up about 30 minutes ago, and I am feeling incredibly happy and chipper. It’s 6:22am, and I have my alarm set for 7am so I can take my mom to work in order to do some errands throughout the day.
Yesterday morning I woke up around 4:20am. I don’t think the pattern to my happiness is waking up incredibly early, but I think it’s the attititude that I’m waking up with, and the excitement for what my plans are for that day.
I woke up, and I checked my email, and I got this email from one of my classmates from my Business of Web Design class. The way this class is set up is that we are split into groups (I’m in a group of 5) and as these teams we build a website for a non-profit organization. The goal is to learn about the business of web design, to learn the different team roles when working with a group (specifically geared towards online teams), and to learn about collaboration. We have the choice to attend class online or in-person. So, I’ve never really met anybody in my class besides my team that I’m working with. A few days ago, I checked my email and saw that the professor sent out a question to the whole class about how to add a search bar to a website because one of the group’s clients wanted a search bar.
Two to three days ago in one of my self-love posts, I mentioned how I started my day reading that email and looking up the information to send back out to the class and how I thought that was a cool way to start the day, but overall for that day my energy was really low and I was feeling overwhelmed.
So, today, after waking up and checking my email, I get an email from that specific student who asked the question about the search bar, and she said she implemented one of the ways I wrote about in the email on her client’s website and thanked me with pleasant words.
That made me so happy. It was also so cool to know that the actions I did on a low energy day, which I thought wasn’t that productive resulted in me being able to help someone, and getting a lovely email to wake up to a couple days later, which is helping me start my day positively and is giving me extra energy for today.
It was just cool to see the affect of positive energy and helping others, even if I wasn’t feeling too positive when I was helping someone else, and it’s cool to see how energy can spread.
I had a great day yesterday, and I feel like I’ll have a great day today. 🙂 I’m feeling the energy of two yellow, sunshiny photos in this self-love post today. 🙂
I hope I can spread my positive energy to whoever reads this, and to anyone and everyone.
