Honestly, I have been a bit of a negative Nancy this week. Too much stress, not enough self care.
I may or may not have looked like this a time or two this week.
Instead of focusing on the crap, I am going to refocus today! Sometimes I get in such ruts that I forget how much I really have to be thankful for. And how much in life I truly love!
So, a couple things I love despite all the struggle being thrown at me this week…..
My friends. I have some of the best friends in the world. I am separated from most of them by distance, and I really hope they all know how much they mean to me. One of my best friends sent me the most touching birthday card, I broke down in tears. Love her.
This is her and I way back at my 16th birthday! I have known her since kindergarten. We actually routinely write each other letters since we both like getting mail so much. I absolutely love getting mail. I highly recommend you write a letter to a friend today!
What else do I love? The fact that I have a job that I love and a roof over my head. The unknowns surrounding our big move have me very stressed, but regardless of what happens I know I will have a roof over my head. This is a luxury so many don’t have.
What else? The fact that I have the greatest cat in the world.
He was such a baby here, this was the first day I got him. He has so much personality and is constantly “talking”. He annoys almost everyone, but I love him to bits!
I love that although I am going crazy not exercising right now (doctors orders), it is because I have access to health care and a wonderful doctor who is doing her best to get me sorted out as quickly as possible.
I love that although I sometimes don’t have the desire to cook an elaborate meal the second I get home from work, I know that I will be coming home to food in my fridge and a wonderful man to share dinner with.
And last, but definitely not least, I love Patrick Dempsey. So, so much.
What do you love? What are you thankful for?
