There are threads for pet peeves and little gripes but I thought it might be nice to have one for the things that made you happy today or any other day.

I need more positivity in my outlook too.

I'll start:

Today I'm happy that my building has a smoking area in the basement of the parking garage where it's not warm, but much warmer than outside!

If that isn't a diss, I don't know what is.

Please nobody ever again accuse ME of being the most negative person here.

Today, I'm happy to be in a job that I love and look forward to EVERY day. It's so fulfilling! Today I got to work with my favourite ox and give him many hugs and kisses and I also had a good laugh with my supervisor.

I am also happy that I got to wear my fabulous new scarf which the best friends ever bought for me! It says "cow hugger" and everyone, even the manager, said how nice it is and that I must have very good friends

Today I am happy that I got another snow day! I got to spend all day with my boyfriend, in our robes 'working' from home.

I am happy that I woke up with a Very Large Dog snuggled up next to me keeping me warm.

I am happy that my homework was fun (seriously, I got to write about how much I love my books )

I am happy that even though so much negativity and pettiness surrounds me, I am able to ignore it and even laugh it off.

I guess I am a happy person in general.

I'm happy that I made it safely home from work and our staff meeting tonight was canceled. I'm staying in for a while. Oh, and that I still have some delicious cashews left.

I don't care anymore. I'm not even upset, I'm just laughing at some of the ridiculousness I see on a daily basis.

That is awesome! I hope you all have a happy reunion!

Today I'm happy that some potential family drama was avoided.

I'm happy that the sun came out for a few hours despite it only being in the teens.

I'm happy that my friend's pregnancy is going okay so far without any complications.

I'm happy that my first day of the semester went off without a hitch. There's even a course I'm legitimately excited about.

Today I'm happy that Tosh.0 is coming on tonight.

There are no reasons to not go vegan, only excuses.

Today I am happy that I have a table with a heating element under it, so even if the rest of my apartment is in the 40s I'm nice and toasty.

Today I'm happy that all of my new classes seem awesome.

More so, I'm happy about a new, budding romance!

Today I'm happy that I saw my singer/songwriter friend play an awesome show last night with some new material I hadn't heard before

I'm happy that I had chapatis with mashed potato and cauliflower gravy and samosas for lunch from an awesome South Indian vegetarian restaurant by my house

I'm happy I have a space heater under my desk at work right now so my toes don't freeze

I'm happy I'm going to be seeing Sarah Kramer in person this month at her fundraiser for the animals at Karmavore. I'll get a calendar and a vegan cupcake or croissant and some nifty deals and all the proceeds are going to help piggies at Hearts on Noses Pig Sanctuary

I'm happy I have my warm boyfriend and kitty to snuggle with when I get home tonight, nothing like sharing your home with other mammals when it's chilly out!

What can I say, I'm a total a-hole.

Today I'm happy that it's hump day and that I had a lovely dinner last night with a very dear old friend...my mentor and favorite teacher from high school. It was wonderful and I hope we do it again sometime.

Today, I'm happy because I have a job interview on Fri.

I confess to viewing the thread and not commenting. I wasn't particularly happy at that time.
