Today's #HAWMC prompt asks: What revs up your internal engine? When you see, hear, feel this it gets you excited and ready to face what comes next. Tell us what it is!
I am laughing because my answer is: EVERYTHING!
I am typically cheerful all the time. I get excited about the thought of my morning coffee, of the opportunity to stretch, pray, meditate and to go to the office. I love my husband, our city, our apartment, our cat, the farmer's market and concerts in front of our building. I get excited about going to Mass, reading on the ferry rides to and from the office, my monthly book club meetings, Two Boots Pizza and my Metropolitan Museum of Art membership. I get excited about my Remicade infusions because I get to visit with the nurses at the doctor's office. I love movies, music, reality television and "The Following". I get excited at the beginning of every new season, ready for the new temperatures, dressing differently and the new aroma of the air. I even get excited about down time, silence and going to bed with my husband and satin sleep mask scented wtih lavender essential oil.
So, when my psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis get me down, it doesn't last long. There is always something good nearby -- like glitter, and Cool Whip in my hair on Christmas Day!
Okay, now I'm tired.
