I was running errands with Riley today. We had just finished checking out at the grocery store when the cashier greeted the next customer. “How are you today sir?” He exuberantly answered - “Just Ducky!” Pleasantly surprised by his enthusiasm, I turned to him and said, “I love that!” He replied “Do you know what Ducky means?” No, I replied. “It means that no matter what comes my way today, I’ll be like a duck and let it slide off my back. I’m happy and positive all the time, no other way to be!” His happy energy enveloped me. I smiled and told him, you just gave me a pearl today, Thank you!
In these last few days, I’ve been feeling the effects of all the negativity and fear in our world. I’ve watched the events unfolding and felt such sadness. I’ve been feeling a little bit hopeless watching the anger and hatred.
I think the Universe has perfect timing. It brought me this shining light to remind me to live in joy, to find happiness within. This smiling happy man reminded me to let go of the negative energy and focus on the positive. What a gift he was! I'm little lighter now. And if you are wondering how I feel - Just Ducky! #focusonthepositive #findhappinesswithin #savingteets #quackquack
