The Internet’s abuzz with this study that supposedly sets a baseline (of sorts) for how much you need to earn to really be happy in today’s world.
I’m not going to write about that. Lord knows, I’m personally poor enough to be worrying about how to keep happy with what I already have. Instead, I’m going to tell you readers how my day went. Which is unusual, since I never keep a diary, much less try to make a blog post seem like one. And yes, I’m stalling. The idea is that appalling.
It’s kinda sad that these days, one of the things that can complete my day is the fact that I was able to inch my way closer to sealing this deal with a potential client. I’m not saying anything concrete, because I might jinx the entire thing, and lord knows that we need as many clients as we can get, but I’ll say this much: I’m rather proud that the details of this possible contract, while not a complete departure from the usual menu served by my firm, is something that we’ve never really tackled full on. It’s something that I’ve been wanting to sink my teeth into for a long time now, but never really had the chance. Well, now here’s an opportunity, and if I play my cards right, who knows. We might actually get it long-term.
It also warms my heart to know that my business partners are (because of one situation or the other) slowly opening up to the idea of learning my trade. It could be the start of something really fruitful. Fingers crossed?
Wow, so I was actually able to pull off a diary-like entry, after all. H-uh. And to think it hardly took ten minutes of my time.
One last thing. The realization that you’re genuinely happy, because somebody else is happy today, is enough to double the aforementioned emotion. There’s a term for this, I just can’t remember it. It’s at the tip of my tongue.
