I have to say, Spring seems to have arrived at exactly the right time for me. I was in a bit of a gloomy space, and the weather in the recent past hadn’t helped that much. However, spring came right when my life switched into a higher gear. Things are happening, and it kinda blows my mind.
Take, for example, the fact that I put together a Windows 8 app last night. Yes, I’m actually a registered Windows 8 developer now. That says nothing about my skill level, but the fact that I put one together, even with a tool that did most of the work, is rather surprising to me. I never pictured myself as a developer of any sort, but it seems that the world is challenging that view of myself and proving that even in my 30s this old dog can learn new tricks.
So, my happy thought for today is the idea that our ideas of what we are capable of can be proven wrong. The world is more open to us than we think, and while that can be a little bit terrifying, it is also tremendously exciting.
