Day 2 of 100 Days of Good Karma.
Today’s silver lining: an audio book and a super cluttered craft cabinet.
I handle the ups and downs of a major crisis better if I keep busy. If I stop, I think and right now, I’m declaring thinking off-limits.
Luckily, thanks to my children, there is always something in my house I can declutter.
My kids have a craft cabinet that holds Play-Doh, markers, crayons, colored pencils, coloring books, activity books, paints, beads, string, sketch pads, you name it. Due to the nature of this cabinet, I have to clean this thing out once every few months or I end up with art work piling up on my counter and spilling out onto my kitchen floor.
So I spent the day going through the cabinet and listening to Stephen King’s new book, Mr. Mercedes, using the Audible.com app on my phone.
Stephen King? You might ask. At a time like this?
Absolutely. Want to know why?
Because no matter how bad my day is going, the characters in a Stephen King novel are guaranteed to have it worse.
What’s your silver lining today? I love comments.
