I watched Sally’s video early this morning and wondered what would be my ‘happy moment’ in a very busy day at work. I always try to be cheerful during the working day but I really wanted a ‘special’ moment.
In my lunch hour to my delight I saw a handsome husky dog lying in the sun whilst the owner was chatting on her phone. He sat up as I approached and raised his head for a pat. His fur was so soft to my touch, he then made gentle grunting noises of delight as I tickled his ears. He was so still and I felt a real connection that we were both in the same ‘moment’ together.
As a dog lover I was thrilled I had such a loving response from him. As I was about to leave his owner said, “you were very honoured, he doesn’t do that for everyone”.
That was my special moment, and I’m still smiling!
"Hi I’m Dena. I have worked in the same company for many years in a variety of roles and am now in a dual role of health and safety and assistant to the company secretary.
I have been interested in holistic therapies for many years, and as I am qualified to practise in a few, it would be good to re-engage again with the calm and balance that they bring, and of course to increase my everyday Happyness!
When I saw on Sally’s email asking for Happynesshubbers I thought what a good idea, but knowing me thought that I wouldn’t be able to commit to looking at all the emails for three weeks and finding time to go online and blog as I haven’t done it before. I know it only takes a few moments of the day, as I did dip in and out last time, and enjoyed the ones I looked at. My son is Paul, another Happynesshub Hero, and he asked me about becoming a Happynesshub Hero too – I surprised myself when I said yes! I’m excited to have the possibility of committing to start this exciting journey and make it part of my everyday life."
