New Month, New Attitude!

3 Mar

bright side

Last week I posted about a few things that I think are standing in the way of me doing what I need to do. Or, to use a familiar word, my excuses.

And, the first thing I need to say is thanks for all of the supportive messages I got through various channels — I didn’t set out looking for anything, it was really just a “throw it out there and get it out of my head” kind of post. But every word of support is appreciated. Always.

I really don’t want people to think that I dwell on the negative though. I honestly try not to. I wake up every morning thankful for all the good in my life because I know it could disappear in an instant!

I have some really amazing people in my life, most importantly, my Pop — I am sure when my mom used to tell me “You’re just like your father” it wasn’t *always* a compliment. But it’s pretty true! I also have other family members that I know I can lean on πŸ™‚

To kind of follow up on all that has been (had been?) dragging me down…

  1. That financial thing that was really weighing me down – it’s gotten better thanks to my guardian angels. I have a way to go to feel comfortable again but things are looking up!
  2. My job angst is coming to an end. VERY soon in fact πŸ™‚ I’ll miss a lot of the people I’m working with now, but that is no reason to stay
  3. The body image thing…that’s been around ages so it’s going to take more than a couple of weeks to clear up. But I can definitely change things up a little, at least!!

Every morning is a new start – and I need to start taking better advantage of that!!

Thanks again to everyone who played a part in turning my attitude around in the last couple of weeks — every word and every action, no matter how big or small, helped so much and reminded me that things are not so bad

thank you so much
