An exercise in looking on the bright side

I had a bad day. I don't want to talk about it.

I'm going to try something else instead..

1. Work - my team is awesome, I'm treated very well, and I've never had so much fun at a job. Ever. I love working with people who CARE!

2. Training - I've exercised 14 out of 15 days since the new year.

3. Husband - we've never been closer and on the same page as we are now. I'm feeling super supported by him, and he's the reason why I'm writing now, as opposed to avoiding life or accepting sadness.

4. Nutrition - I've done more healthy meal prep in the last 3 weeks than I have IN MY WHOLE LIFE.

5. Family - it's awesome to have married into a family that hugs and says things like "I love you." It's still totally weird to me, but in a good way. I'm learning how to hug.

6. Pets - my dog is getting snuggier by the day as he hits doggie middle age. He's becoming a fluffy, blobby little old man and I love him.

7. Finances - making leaps and bounds toward financial freedom (aka major life choice flexibility) every year. I see the light.

That totally worked. Mission accomplished. Night everyone. Tomorrow is a new day.


  1. So great to look at the bright side! I also have a hard time with this when I am having a bad day.

  2. To be honest, when I started the post, I was in no mood to look on the bright side. The worst parts of life always seem to be the bits you dwell on. By the time I finished writing, I was focused on the good and feeling MUCH better.
