It’s time to take a little time to notice some of the things I’m grateful for…before I completely meltdown (again)…I know this will help!
This move has been extremely challenging, mentally and physically. I am very grateful that I (and I am serious here) am not curled up in a corner crying and trying to hide from the world. I’m also grateful that I am still able to get out of bed and accomplish some things. Yes, I am in a lot of pain but, I’m still doing much more than I have in years. I am so VERY GRATEFUL for this. I told Stuart last night, I just can’t believe I started feeling better (no not well, but a bit better) right before all of this happened. Wow! If I was still like I was just a few months ago now. This move would have been…..uh, well I just don’t want to think about it.
I’m grateful I sold almost all of my fused glass supplies. I have only 2 things left and they should be very easy to sell! Because of this we didn’t have to move any of that! Yay!!! Also, because of this I was able to buy our living room furniture. This made me feel so good. I was able to contribute to the household. This is the first time I have been able to do this in YEARS! (We had to by new living room furniture because the furniture from out old place was too big.) This is a loan to the house though, as soon as we can pay it back that money goes in my service dog fund.)
I’m very grateful that I met the nicest lady when I sold my fused glass supplies and she actually sold my kiln for me! How cool is that?
I’m grateful that our new place has a beautiful backyard.
I’m grateful that we live within walking distance to a grocery store and other little shops. I hope it really is within MY walking distance. If not now, soon.
I’m grateful there is a park nearby.
I’m grateful Stuart works very close.
I’m grateful we found a restaurant that will make meals that meet my food requirements, and it isn’t far away. Plus, the very first time we went we got the best waitress, she is the bomb! We’ve been there one more time and asked for her, she remembered what I needed and helped me order! Wow!
I’m very grateful I’m still losing weight. It feels so good to be getting in to smaller clothes and seeing a smaller face in the mirror. I’m grateful that the diet is making me feel so much better! What you eat really can make such a HUGE difference in how you feel!
I’m grateful I have the coolest cousin in the world living close by! Can’t wait to see him and his brood this week! And it’s so nice we can call on each other! He’s real family! If your reading this, I love you man!!!
I’m grateful things are coming together……wait, did I just say that? do I believe it? Am I just saying it or do I believe it? hmmm, let me think. (Jeopardy them playing in my head…) I’m not sure. One thing will happen and it looks like things are flowing along then one thing will happen and things just start going backward…but I know things will end up…the way it’s supposed to be, after all how else could it be?
And yes, I do mean that.
I’m grateful I wrote this post, because I needed it. I needed to remind myself that things are going happen. They are going to be the way they are, no matter what. I keep trying to bend things the way I want them, I keep fighting to make things happen faster than they are going to, and well, I needed to remind myself…..it’s going to happen, or it’s not, and that’s OK.
Yesterday is gone, I can’t worry about what happened, tomorrow isn’t here yet can’t do anything about it. So today I’ll do what I can, and that’s it, if something comes up and makes it so things get in the way I’m going to go with the flow and not get all out of sorts. Just breathe. It will get done, or it won’t, maybe it wasn’t meant to be. I’m so very grateful I realize that.
Today’s meltdown averted…..maybe I should have written this yesterday.
