I had a hate list going in my head this morning, because I was having a bitchy Monday morning, and then someone else’s horribly sad news gave me the reality check I needed. I have a tendency to let little things make me super cranky, so instead of pursuing the negativity with a hate list, I’m making a list of reasons my life is actually great.
-I have the love and support of a great man who makes my life better every day.
-I have a job that I enjoy.
-I have a job, period. In times like these, that seems extra important to remember.
-Two days ago, I had a fever and felt terrible, but a weekend of rest and cuddles and books and movies and hot toddies seems to have fixed it, so I am lucky to have missed the sick boat once again.
-Oh yeah, aforementioned man also makes a mean hot toddy and got me my favorite soup.
-It’s almost fall, thank goodness, which means less 100 degree weather and more soup and cider. (Ok, so, there’s more like another 2 months of summer down here, but still…close!)
-I have a home I love and continue to improve and make more ours every week.
-It stormed this weekend, and that’s something I really needed. So did my plants.
-We have really nice neighbors with really cute kitties, and they baked us cookies just for playing with the kitties while they were out of town! So nice!
Just thinking about some of the good things I have made my day a little better. (Though I still reserve the right to despise Mondays.) Pass it on.
