A friend and I used to do an email exchange of small things we’re grateful for. This is not a small feat because you can run out of things after a while and you don’t want to list “a beautiful day” for the 40th time especially when you’re stuck inside a windowless office!
But today I was really, really grateful for something that anyone living in a traffic-congested big city might appreciate — a better route to work that shaved 20-30 minutes off my commute!
Sure, it took me years to find this route. Sure, it’s only 20 minutes. I’m not doing anything great with those extra minutes — just hitting the snooze button for extra sleep if possible. But 20 minutes a day = 100 minutes a week = thousands of extra minutes per year! This little thing has made my day, my week, and possibly will make it to my top 10 favorte things list for 2011. Yes, I hate traffic!
What small things make your day?
