  • And also what you talk about so beautifully in Option B is this getting through all the firsts.

  • And you were keeping a journal, which I think is really a...it's so therapeutic.

  • I've kept journals since I was 15.

  • But keeping a journal up until that...Dave's birthday.

  • Which I think marked, what, 156 days?

  • Yeah, it marked five months, yeah.

  • Five months.

  • I had always wanted to journal.

  • I have boxes of journals starting in first grade.

  • Where you started?

  • January 1.

  • I don't think I got to January 10.

  • Every year I started a new one; I was hopeful.

  • But when Dave died, I just journaled.

  • I sat at my computer for hours and wrote and wrote and wrote.

  • And if I didn't write for two days, I felt like I was gonna burst.

  • So it was your way of letting it out.

  • You also came to, I will say, the hard way, the understanding of how gratitude and looking at...

  • Because I've been doing this since the mid'90s where you go through the day and I choose...

  • I have journals filled with just things that just brought me joy and pleasure that I'm grateful for.

  • That's amazing.

  • Journals filled with it.

  • And you make the point that I tried to make to people for years that when you are looking for three things or five things in the day that are gonna make you joyful.

  • You go through the world looking for the goodness that's gonna show up.

  • Correct.

  • So it turned out joy is a discipline.

  • We have to work at it.

  • And I probably didn't work at it hard enough before.

  • But now I really have to work at it.

  • Or you took it for granted.

  • You do what everybody does.

  • You took it for granted.

  • But it's exactly that.

  • Before this, I used to go to bed every night worrying about what I did wrong and what I was gonna mess up the next day.

  • And now, I go to bed thinking of the positive.

  • But also, I notice them during the day.

  • I say, that's gonna make the journal.

  • In that moment.

  • And I take...

  • I love that.

  • Three moments of joy.

  • I hope everyone watching...

  • Yes.

  • Or maybe you do five.

  • Three moments. Five moments.

  • Write them down religiously.

  • Any moment would do it.

  • I mean, just because it is stopping and taking stock of where you are in your life.

  • And it's also looking at the good stuff.

  • And I will tell you, when you look for the good stuff, more good stuff shows up.

And also what you talk about so beautifully in Option B is this getting through all the firsts.
