So I've noticed that as INFPs we tend to be a bit negative, and especially put ourselves down. So I've decided to create a happy thread! Post something good that has happened to you today, a week ago, 3 years ago - whenever. It can be something really huge, like you just got married, or something that may seem insignificant, like you found an old picture that made you smile. It can also just be about anything that makes you happy in general. I hope this thread can bring everyone's spirits up! :happy:
Here's my post: Today I got an email about volunteering as a Latin teacher in South Carolina over the summer, which I am really excited about. I have an unhealthy love for all things classics, and I love working with kids so this is perfect for me. It will also hopefully cure my restlessness from staying in one place for too long!
Bring on the happiness, everyone!

Prepare for posts bemoaning how shallow this thread is and yearning for ye olden days, when PerC was such a more meaningful experience (all co-rumination, all the time).
Me, I went sledding today. I live in Alabama, so it's kind of a big deal.

I am still breathing. I can still reflect. I can still eat.
The little things shouldn't be taken for granted.
I always feel a bit more okay after listening to this song (love the singer lol)
Signed up for volunteer work with foster children. All it encompasses is being a mentor of sorts, but also taking them out to various activities (sporting events, theater, etc). The importance of this is the tremendous potential these children have, but they just need to be given a chance to succeed. In the future, adopting children was one thing I intended to look into, but I'm also interested in minimizing juvenile delinquency.
While I consider myself a bit of a nomad, I notice that when I talk to people about the things I'm doing, they often always want to jump on with me. So, it's like travelling in a wolf pack of sorts. People care, it's just a matter of knowing what they need to do and how they can do it.

Even though I've been on this forum awhile now, I'm extremely happy to have found PerC! Finding people with similar values, or even just a similar personality is a HUGE boost to my self esteem. By far best website and most interesting people and topics. Another happy thing is that I'm taking care of eight adorable puppies!:crazy:

@Latoslapise enjoy the beach! I miss the ocean...even though it isn't too far away.
I found an old tattered copy of The Brothers Karamazov today in a used bookstore. I love that book. It was so beat up I had to buy it. I can't stop smelling the pages. That made me happy.
