I’ve been thinking a lot about the phrase “it’s one of those days” lately. We say it so often in a negative light, but I think we’re missing the power of the saying when we do that.
Instead of an exasperated, “Ugh, it’s just one of those days” when something goes wrong, I’ve been watching for the little moments. The mother of a dear friend calls these times “God winks” – the little nudges from the universe to say that everything is going to be just fine.
It’s one of those days when the Walk sign comes on as soon as you approach the street, or when you happen to be carrying cash and have exact change when indulging your craving for tacos at lunch. The days when someone answers your email right before you were about to send a follow-up, or all of your socks match up in the laundry, or when you have just the right amount of milk left for your cereal.
It’s when life lines up just right.
The littlest things will keep you smiling if you let them, so keep your eyes open for them and make it one of those days (and one of those weeks).
With that, here’s what I wore last week in San Francisco – sunshine at last!
The Week of June 22-26
Have a great week!
