One good thing to start off this week

“Every day may not be good… but there’s one good thing in every day!” ~ Alice Morse Earle

onegoodthing week #8

After missing a couple of #oneGoodThing posts, I thought I would do a quick one this morning. You know to kind of ease back into things. Which is why I will not do a lot of ‘talking’.

Since I was on vacation my life has been full of good things lately. But the point of this link up is to see the good things in everyday life. There are many. We just have to see and acknowledge them.

In the photo that I am sharing with you below, yes, taken during said vacation, there are many good things for me.

  • I am in my happy place
  • I am smiling
  • I love relaxing and sleeping in a hammock
  • the wind in my hair
  • windsurf and snorkel gear in the background readily available
  • hubby taking a photo (of me)

It is all good.

And, there is at least one more good thing for me in this photo. But more on that one in a separate post, possibly even by David.

For now I think this is enough of a #OneGoodThing to start off this week back home.

How about you? What good things are you going to share with us?


#onegoodthing is a collaboration between Susi of Bocafrau and Leslie aka RoryBore of Ink Interrupted and myself. Together we are hosting this weekly link up to remind ourselves of and surround us with some positive thoughts. We invite you to join us and link your blog posts, flickr or instagram photos below and if you are on twitter, or instagram for that matter, don’t forget to tag your tweets with #onegoodthing.

 *** Here is where I link up today. ***

Please also help me spread the word about my Saturday Art Linkup and grab my badge below:


I hope that over time we will be building a community dedicated to art and creating. I rather like these words said by Andy Warhol:


Don’t think about making art, just get it done.

Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. 

While they are deciding, make even more art.” 

Why don’t you join me along my journey and follow me on fbgo and tw if you prefer and see what I come up with next. You may, of course, also [et_bloom_inline optin_id=”optin_3″]

  1. I really really really like your happy place. I want a happy place like that — even if it is in my own backyard. You look sooo peaceful and content in this shot – great job David!! Glad you guys had a great vacation – with NO injuries!!! yeah. Looking forward to all the beautiful shots I know you will be posting. Did you get some windsurfing photos too?

  2. Great picture! You look so very happy!! I do have a one good thing to report!!! While you were on vacation, I and my doctors have finally figured out what is wrong with me! I have hypothyroid and am on meds now but I tell you it has been YEARS since I have felt this good and they tell me I will feel even more better! Who would have thought that knowing you have a disease would make you happy but it really really does help to know what is wrong and what can be done about it. So huge smile!!

  3. Oh, I love your happy place! I’m hoping to find plenty of happy next week when we venture off to Mexico. Claudia, this is a great photo of you… you are the poster child for contentment!

  4. Love this photo and knowing you had a good vacation! So many good things there, for sure. Can’t wait to find out what the other good thing is! Have a great week!!! xoxo
