#reverb10 27: Ordinary Joy

Our most profound joy is often experienced during ordinary moments. What was one of your most joyful ordinary moments this year?

I have many. YOU have many. You just don’t know it.

I did a search on Twitter and compared #FML to #MLIG (My life is good). First off, #FML is standard, everyone knows that. Not so for its opposite. It could be “My Life is Awesome” or “My Life Is Good” or “My Life Rocks” etc.

Anyway, for #MLIG? I got about 2 tweets in the last 24 hours. For #FML? I couldn’t count them up because every minute I was getting new tweets.

This is why I like AND don’t like the #reverb10 prompts. I like them because hopefully it makes people realize their life is GOOD. I DON’T like them because I already KNOW my life is good. It’s freaking awesome!

... and for the majority of you, so does yours.

I got a new boardgame! I’m so excited I could bed my wife.

My wife is awesome!

I had cornbread this morning!

I adore my kids SOOOO much!

My stomach no longer hurts and I can poo with abandon!

I’m almost done all these dumb prompts!

Ok, that was uncalled for…

Anyway, I got pretty tired of the entitled whining and negativism, so I started up a new twitter account to just talk about all the good things, the blessings, the things I shouldn’t take for granted.

Life is Wonderful. Life is Miraculous.

That will be my 2011 NY resolution. I am going to tweet about all the ordinary, wonderful, amazing things in life.
