I have not blogged in quite a while. There was simply nothing to say. I was miserable, my family was miserable, we were all herxing- me in a real bad way.
But no more. I am sick of the negativity. I had been working really hard on staying positive, power of positive thinking, the “Secret” and all that good stuff. And when I was focused on all that, life seemed pretty good! Sure I had some bad days, not feeling well, not everything was perfect, and the bills were still there. But it seemed easier. My perspective was healthier. I knew this was temporary and made the best of it.
Then we all got sucked down- and it is hard to get out of it. And you know what- it didn’t help, it didn’t change a damn thing- it just spread to my family and make us all unbearable. Bad moods really can be contagious! But yesterday I decided this was enough. So at dinner last night, I told my family I was getting back on the wagon, and that I needed their help. Hopefully, positive thinking can be just as contagious.
I wrote up some things I am grateful for.
1. That I have a friend like Sally- who has taught me that Mondays and all days don’t have to be bad!
2. That my family had a good family dinner last night. I said to them- enough of the complaining and scowly faces- then we pulled out our Coversation jar and had a fun time answering some fun and seriousl questions together. You could feel the tension within us draining away!
3. That I am alive, and on this Earth, have friends and family who love me and I love them!
4. That the season premiere of Chuck is tonight- that show makes me crack up! Laughter is goooooooood medicine!
I am also really happy to have a helpful website like The Morning Coach. The podcasts and forums there help me keep on the straight and narrow!
