Happiness is....

Positive Outlooks....

I had a conversation yesterday with a gal about a package she just received from India. Talk about different perspectives..

Here I am: every time I get a package here in the office from another country I get a bit excited. Here is something from another part of the world....somewhere I have never seen. This package in particular had originated in India, however it was routed through France, then to Memphis, before making its way into my hands. FREAKING AWESOME. Seriously, the fact that a package can be halfway around the world one day and then two days later be in my hands completely astounds me. I used to think I could catch a faint whiff of exotic air coming from those little parcels, but mostly any scent I caught I am pretty sure was in my imagination.

I walked the package back to its intended recipient and her reaction??? "Ugh, foreign germs, disease, dirt..." (this is nothing intended towards the people of India, however, just her idea on packages coming from anywhere really.....this person has big issues with germs in general)

Talk about being a buzzkill though....

I'm with you... totally awesome! :D You should join a circle journal some time. I'm going to start one soon; let me know if you want in! :D

PS. However, with the CJ we are most likely looking at your journal being shipped around the USA, not all over the world (that would really be an expensive, but very cool circle!). The circle I was in last year was all from the US with exception to one gal in Canada.
TTFN! :D
