It's a good day to have a good day!
It certainly is. I had an interesting thing happen to me yesterday. On the way home from the gym, I got pulled over by a local cop. I wasn't speeding, and couldn't figure out why he pulled me over. He comes to the car and asks for my license. I had it out and ready along with my insurance info, and handed it over. He looks at my license and says, "is this YOU?"
I laughed, and told him that it WAS me, 100 pounds ago. Instead of telling me what I had done wrong, he said, well how did you do that? I told him about Spark, and how tracking food, fitness, exercise and the great Spark community made me successful. He wrote down the Sparkpeople.com info.
I then asked him, well you didn't pull me over to ask if I had lost weight, so what did I do? He said, your windshield wipers are not working. I turned on the car and showed him that indeed they were working, but somehow they had gone off kilter and instead of stopping at the bottom of the window, they were now stopping in the middle of the window. He said that it was a hazard, and I needed to get it fixed. (Because he had been nice, I didn't say, YOU PULLED ME OVER FOR THIS??)
I said, OK, but this just happened this past week, and I can take it to my mechanic this week. He said, well I am supposed to give you a fix-it ticket, but they ARE working, and you have lost 100 pounds, so just get them fixed OK? I said I would. He then said, congratulations, you look awesome... oh, I'm not supposed to say that. I told him that anyone telling me I look awesome is OK by me. We both smiled and he drove away.
I promised myself to stop speeding around and slow down AND fix these **$%*%(% windshield wipers, because I knew I had just been lucky.
When I got home, the "fall cleanup" guys had been there. If you don't live in an area where all the leaves fall, Fall can be a huge mess. There were so many leaves on my lawn, I could not see the lawn, and I have a BIG lawn. Five trees dropping all their leaves will do that. There was not one leaf on my lawn when I got home. It was amazing, and I love how the guys that do this for me have such pride in their work, that they make everything look perfect.
Today, I get the snow tires put on my car. Winter is coming!
Today is a good day to have a good day, and you better believe I am going to have one.
Do something nice for someone to make THEM have a good day too.
