The good things

Yesterday I shared a little personal stuff about me and one of the things that I struggle with. I find it difficult to be very open on my blog and difficult to talk about my feelings and whatever is in my heart but I’d really like to change that. I do hope not to disappoint too many of you or offend etc but I need my blog to be a place where I feel I can vent and be honest. If you happen to disagree with what I say, that’s fine, but please don’t post nasty or hurtful comments. That’s my only request :)

Ok here’s another snippet about me.....I’ve always been bit of a pessimist – you know a glass is half empty kind of person. I’m aware that this sometimes drags other people down with me (including me) and so today I’m going to focus on the good things in an effort to be more positive.

5 good things which happened in the last 24 hours
1. the roads were really quiet coming to work. I don’t like heavy traffic so this was a pleasant start to the day.
2. a colleague went above and beyond to help me – that’s always appreciated.
3. I managed to find a parking space at work which wasn’t in a deep puddle or other cruddy area of the car park
4. cuddled on the settee with hubby
5. had a phone call from my sister

I could easy triple that by writing 15 negative things but I will refrain LOL

Good Things today...I ran 6 miles (that's the farthest I've ever run), I am meeting a friend from high school who I haven't seen in 20 years, had amazingly yummy fresh raspberries for breakfast, spontaneous "I love you" from my undemonstrative youngest son!

I am a faithful follower of your site through my Google reader. I wanted to pop over and comment. I am 54 and have been a glass 1/2 full my whole life. I always look for the good and usually manage to find, even when my world is falling apart. I commend you on wanting to change. It is very tough and you will meet much opposition, but you will feel so much better and your struggles will get easier and easier. So, what is something good that happened to me? My sister brought my 81 year old mother down to visit. She lives in another state and I only see her twice a year. We had an awesome weekend together and made lots of new memories. I pray that God will bless you with many more good things so your glass will not only get 1/2 full, but that it will overflow with the joys in your life.

Jen - wow! 6 miles is fab! Go you....my little sports gal :) I desperately need to find some kind of "couch potato to runner" kind of program. Maybe that should be my next book!

Mamaw Bee - thanks so much for your sweet comment, it's very much appreciated. I am trying so hard to change and I think being positive will go a long way towards being happier and more content. It's no fun being miserable all the time and I certainly don't want to drag others down with me. I have prayed for God's support and know that I have him on my side :)

Sending love and prayers your way, my sweet friend!!! There's so much I wish I could share with you, but this isn't the forum in which to do that...just know that you are loved!!!
