My Happy Reel. What’s Yours?
Posted on January 23, 2016
Today, I want to talk about my happy reel – my memory reel of happy days. It’s a rotating wheel of memories, a revolving collection of the happiest moments of my life, one after another, one by one. Now, I want to talk about cheek-hurting moments – when you smile so much that your cheeks hurt. Happiness is defined in those moments. In those moments, it’s not just your cheeks which feel it. Your heart smiles too. I live for moments like that.
And that’s what my happy reel is comprised of – memory after memory of cheek-hurting moments. The past few years have been the happiest of my life. So, my happy reel started with the day I met him, on that warm, July evening, and has continued –
to that night in New York (our third date), when he stopped me in the middle of the street to kiss me, and then asked me to take this picture – our first picture together.
to when we packed up a U-Haul and started a new journey.
to when he asked me to marry him.
This is my happy reel – my memory reel of happy days. As another cheek-hurting moment is added, I will post a follow-up entry. What does your happy reel consist off? Does it include memories of the birth of your child? That time you got a dog? When you purchased a home? I encourage you to write about it. Write about it, then leave a comment below with a link to your post.
I hope your weekend is filled with a ton of cheek-hurting moments.
