I have made a bad habit of using this blog to bitch. Frankly, I’m sick of seeing me do it, and I want better. So it is time to start thinking better. I am going to start making good things happen, even if I’m not changing anything.
How do I propose to do this? One thing I have been told inspires positive thinking is to be thankful for the things in my life. Despite my bitching, there is a lot great in my life, and it is overdue for recognition.
I love my friends. They make me feel great, and I love seeing them. Despite some of my flaws, they are always there for me.
My family has always been a huge part of my life. They go above and beyond to provide support and this is truly invaluable.
I have found some great friends and resources through activities I take part in. These activities have occupied much of my time. Whether they provided me with needed training, improved my health, or provided me with precious contacts, all have served as great resources.
I have embarked once again in education. I love what I am learning, and my government has recognized my ‘condition’ as a disability and has made it easy for me to return to studies. With my vision, resources have been made available to me to make studying a great deal easier.
Those are only some of the many things I appreciate in my life. This is not to say that everything is perfect. There are things I always want to ameliorate. Even some of the things I am happy about have issues. There are moments where I am so fed up I don’t think I can handle anymore, but I think back to the happiest moments in my life, and even then I complained and did not take the time to appreciate the good things. So I am now taking the time to appreciate all that is right.
This does not mean that I will accept all that is wrong. I will try to improve it, but must be happy for all I have that is right. I know thanksgiving was last weekend and this may seem late, but thank you. If you are reading this, I am very thankful for everything you do for me, you make me smile.
