I’ve had a bad day. Work left me frustrated and upset (I actually hit my computer hard enough with my fist that it thought it had been dropped an shut down to protect itself… But it wasn’t the computers fault). Today it just felt like things kept coming at me and I had no control. I hate days like this. And I hate blogging about them. None of you want to hear about my bad day. I know when I am reading other people’s blogs I love to read successes, triumphs, funny anecdotes… I’m just not there at the moment.
My job finishes at the end of next week and for the first time in my life I don’t really have a back up plan. And for the first time, I’m kinda scared. So, to focus on other things I turned the heel on the second sock and thought about things I was 1. Sure of and 2. Grateful for. Here is what I came up with.
Even though we are both in some difficult times, the man-shape and I hold together well and can still (as proved tonight) make each other laugh. (ok, it was more him making me laugh but he was laughing too)
I have many different skills and abilities and I learn new things quickly, this makes me employable. I am telling myself that I am sure someone will spot this soon, I’m faking it till I make it in that.
I am loved.
I have many goals in sight and hardship and trials only make me more determined.
I don’t have hundreds of friends but the ones I have a true and very supportive.
I still have my health.
I can look out in the world and still see good in it.
I am loved. (ok, I know that is in there twice but it is worth repeating)
What are you grateful for today? I’d love to read some comments for inspiration.
