The Positivity Wave #11

The Positivity Wave
Welcome to my Friday feature! Created by the wonderful Meggy @ Chocolate ‘n’ Waffles, it’s a remedy against feeling down by creating a list of all the good things happening in my life this week. I became so inspired by her weekly posts and later also that by Nickimags @ Secret Library Book Blog,  I felt it was time to begin sharing my own good feelings. It can be anything, from the smallest gesture from a stranger to a major event in your life that alters the direction of your day. Maybe something here will bring a smile to you in the moment.



Let Me Eat Cake

I absolutely love cake but eliminated it from my diet a year ago. I’ve craved it for a week so I decided to just deal with it. My favorite diner gave me a teeny tiny piece today…for free! It was delicious, craving is over and I’m over it🎉🎉🎉



Audio Headphones

This week, I finished two audiobooks that were the starts of new series and I was in audio heaven! One was a new author (Robert Dugoni) with a new favorite narrator (Edoardo Ballerini) and the other was an author I’d read once before (Michael Robotham). It’s just wonderful listening to two great books back to back.



A new farmer’s market grocery store, Sprouts, opened less than a mile from me. I came home with a sack full of veggies…corn, green beans, tomatoes, cukes, etc… that I promptly cooked/prepared and they were delicious (cheaper, too)!



Libraries Rock
My library came through with not one, not two but FOUR of my audiobook recommendations!💜



  • Hubby went out of town for an overnight and I got a free evening with no remote control competition😏
  • One of my best friends got out of a job she hated and found one she loves.
  • We scored a win with our beach house financing, saving a ton of money.
  • Lost 2.8 lbs in the last two weeks!
  • A really dear friend decided to join WW to begin to tackle her weight, which is affecting her health. I never said a word…she was inspired by my progress.

What positivity waves hit you this week?

  2. The grocery store looks amazing! I think I’d be tempted to spend a fortune in there 😉 The Robert Dugoni audio is in my library after reading your review so thanks for that! Many congrats on the weight loss too 💚

  3. Giving in to a craving is absolutely the best way, just my opinion. When I keep putting it off I always end up having way more than I should eventually. Especially with sweet stuff like cake (my fave too!) I find that a little goes a long way. Since cutting back on sugar I can’t believe how sweet some of the stuff I used to eat was, and how much, now just a little is plenty. All to say — yay you!!!

    1. I completely agree with you about cravings, Ren! That little piece of cake killed it. And, it was too sweet as I’ve also cut back drastically on sugar consumption. While I enjoyed the moment, it didn’t inspire me to want more. I’m done for quite some time. My last piece of cake was almost a year ago (my birthday).


    1. Thanks, Kris💜 Good luck on your journey. I believe it should be slow and deliberate because it requires a different way of thinking. That’s been my success as I’ve altered how I think about my body and myself. That had to change before I could have any chance of the weight loss sticking.

  4. Oh, I love that your diner gave you a free tiny piece of cake for your cravings. We cut out a ton of things ages ago, for health reasons, but don’t deny ourselves completely. But we do the same, we have a teeny tiny portion or serving of something only on really special occasions. And, it works.

    And I’m always so grateful for the fact I live in a city that is surrounded by farms. We get tons of fresh farm products all year round. Never mind the cheeses! Hmm…

  5. What a fantastic week! I am really enjoying Robert Dugoni and will have to try the other series. I wish we had your library and Sprouts here. I don’t think we have Sprouts at all here. But I am enjoying Aldi having so many things and cheaper. Here’s to another great week ahead.

  6. So many positives for you this week. I am going to join in with this next week. It really helps me focus on the good things in my life when I read and respond to your and Nicki’s posts. This past week for me: my leg healed enough to get back in the pool, I read and listened to a few audiobooks, I found three honking zucchinis at a roadside stand for $1.00 apiece to grind up and use for making zucchini loaf, bars etc. My grandkids came over all day Friday and we had lots of fun, my church had a fundraising steak dinner and I had a great meal with some wonderful people and I scored veal parmigiana for a great price and it was amazing. Have a great week Jonetta.
