Thanksgiving in July

I'd like to make a list of things that I am thankful for. I realized that a lot of horribly negative things have occurred lately, and they make me very sad, but some positives have actually occurred in the last few months and weeks.

  • I reached my WW goal weight
  • I met my goal of getting "shirted" at the McGuire's Running Club (and yes, Marc left a sweet comment and I didn't see it until I was making this post...and yes, I'm still trying to dry my eyes)
  • I've realized how who my real friends are, no matter what "side" they've taken
  • I've learned to be more accepting of people, and not "judge a book by its cover"
  • I've learned that I often get too carried away, and I'm learning to control that anxiety
  • I have a potential job in the city I want to live in, based on merit alone!
  • I've gained a bit of fashion sense
  • I'm not nearly as shy as I once was and have made new friends (NOT the friends in Florida)
  • I'm taking an active role in making myself a happier person because there isn't a damned reason not to

Sure, there are so many negatives that I couldn't even begin to list them, but I'll give myself an extra postive-looking through the #*@% storm and seeing the few positives left.

Those are all *wonderful* positives--congratulations! :-) It's hard to bypass the negative sometimes and look at the positives (I'm having that issue myself right now!), but it's definitely worth it when you force yourself to look through those rose colored glasses for just a few minutes...
