Spilled Hot Coffee

Yummy Coffee and Chocolate Chip Banana Bread!

It seems to me that searching for an actual job is much harder than working every day at an actual job.

Two months ago I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in journalism. I never dreamed it would be so difficult to find full-time employment.

I have a communications degree! That means that I am extremely marketable right? Wrong. I have sent out almost a hundred different resumes and have heard back from about 3 employers.

I’ve heard that it takes people 7 months or more to fine full-time employment! That sounds like an eternity to me!

I’m only two months and feeling extremely worn out and frustrated.

A naturally positive person I decided last night that I would wake up and make today my HAPPY DAY. All that basically means is that I would find five or six things in my daily life that make me extremely happy and choose to focus on those.

The first thing I chose was Starbucks. I love the strong smell of coffee that I am greeted with upon walking into the shop.

I ordered my usual grande caramel coffee. As I was waiting for my coffee something delicious caught my eye. I saw a piece of chocolate chip banana bread. Four hundred and fifty calories of pure goodness.

Normally, I am a health nut and avoid food like this but, today was my happy day after all. And I decided that this piece of bread was going to make me happy.

I bought the bread, took my coffee and headed to a table. I was feeling quite good at the moment. I was proud of myself for coming up with the idea of a HAPPY DAY!

My HAPPY DAY bliss didn’t last to long though. Seconds after I set my coffee down it spilled all over me, the floor, my computer and the table. In a split second I had the choice to become extremely frustrated and angry or just laugh.

I chose to LAUGH! And laugh I did right in Starbucks.

I discovered that one of the things that makes me the happiest in life is the amount of ridiculously silly things I do on a regular basis.
