Positive Journaling Day 2*
The sun followed me to work today. It may do that every day. I'll see what happens tomorrow.
Most days I forget to look at the sky. A few years ago I heard a news report about a survey where city people were asked to describe the morning sky. Most couldn't. I thought about it and couldn't either. The person being interviewed suggested urban living creates a disconnect with nature. Disconnections create unease. Unease can cause a vague feeling something isn't right. That can make us irritable, and unsettled.
I tried to look at the sky every day after that. I did it for a week and felt smug because I was paying attention to something others weren't. And then I forgot. Today the sun hit my eyes as I turned into the street and stayed with me. It shone through even when clouds passed over and once it warmed up the right half of my face and neck.
What I don't remember about the drive to work is other cars, changing lanes, or traffic lights. It might be better to do my sky watching while taking the dog for a morning walk. Maybe that is what I should try tomorrow.
*NOTE: Heidibeth wrote a post inviting people to write a journal entry every day for 21 days about something positive that happened that day. According to Positive Psychology doing this will help you become happy and when you are happy you are more productive. I'm naturally happy, except lately, so I'm putting effort into this as an experiment.
