Only my second day blogging, and I'm discovering it's really good therapy! It's good to dig deep and find out what's making me tick, one choice at a time. I just finished 45 minutes on the treadmill, and I've also had 2 days of no computer games, which is huge for me. With such an addictive personality, I decided to make wiser choices with my time.
Today's thoughts are sort of about "half full, half empty." I tend to be a pessimist, thinking about the half empty glass I face so often. I've decided to flip everything around, and try the half full approach. Actually, most days in all honesty, my cup is so much more than half full, it's overflowing! But to take baby steps, I'm trying to see my cup as half full, counting my blessings.
So here's some "half full" thinking for today. I don't always enjoy every piano student that I teach, but I have a job. My mom passed away this month at 93, but we had so many good years with her and we know she's in heaven! My house is cluttered and overfull, but at least I have "stuff" to complain about!! I have to say "goodbye" to chips and chocolate bars and cheesecake, at least for now, but I've had 55 years of eating them and enjoying those treats. The Christian school my girls attend takes a big bite out of our bank account, but it's so worth every penny.
I'm going to keep trying my positive approach, hopefully for the rest of my days. I have so much to be thankful for, so much, so very much. Yes, I'm overweight and I need to lose 80 pounds. Otherwise, I'm healthy, strong, and a good cook who can learn to make wiser choices for myself and my family.
Gotta go, until tomorrow, so I can finish my coffee. It's half full!!
