Five things that made me happy today – 10/1/21

Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.

Thich Nhat Hanh

1. Cool and cloudy this morning – low 50s. It actually got up to 61 deg. today – but that was all even though there was sun most of the day.

2. I attended a ZOOM lecture this morning by a sociologist about the differences between Capitalism and Socialism. He also talked about how capitaliism has become conflated with democracy, and socialism has become conflated with oligarchy. Good stuff. Part of the problem with capitalism is that most of the wealth is concentrated at the top.

3. I warmed up by riding the NuStep before my workout with Sarah, my personal trainer. She put me through my paces in balance, and some strength exercises. We finished up with a short walk outside. It was a little cool, but nice in the sunshine.

4. I fixed pork chops, with cinnamon applesauce, mashed potatoes, and green beans for lunch. It was incredibly not bad.

5. There was a bunny sitting in the grass outside the Wellness Center who kept me company while I used the NuStep.

How about you? What made you happy today?
