I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately, and realized how negative my thoughts have been. I’ve been so hung up on all the bad that’s happened over the last month or so that I forgot to focus, or even acknowledge, the good. I think this is something that everyone can relate to, but that doesn’t make it any less of a bad habit. Bad things happen to everyone; it’s our decisions that dictate how we let them affect us. I’ve been trying to make it a habit to point out at least one good thing about everything that has gone wrong. For example, losing my father has been one of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to deal with. However, that experience has brought me closer to my family.I have many blessings in my life. Sadly, I haven’t taken the time to be grateful for them as of late. There’s so much that I grateful for, there are so many people that I love dearly, and I apologize if I haven’t let that show. I’ve let my grief swallow me and have gotten lost in the negative emotions, but I plan on beginning to change that.I’m grateful to have a job. Yes, it’s stressful. Yes, I hate it at times. But I have an awesome team that bitches and moans with me, we make each other laugh, and we get through each day together. I have a steady income, and work for a reputable company that has a lot of opportunity for growth.I’m grateful for Bryan. We drive each other insane and argue quite a bit, but at the end of the day, we still love each other. We somehow manage to work through every hand we’re dealt by working together to find solutions. He’s my rock and I am his, and I can’t, nor want to, imagine life without him.
