What I Like About My Life

I’m taking my Aunt Gail’s advice here and writing all the positive things in my life down for myself so I can see all that I have in life and all I have to offer in life.  So here goes:

  • I have a cell phone, so I can text people too.  It goes both ways
  • The friends I do have that stuck it out with me through the very hard times I truly adore you
  • I have the most awesome family a girl could ask for, with 2 parents who love me unconditionally
  • I can stay out longer than I could before and am becoming more comfortable being around larger groups of people
  • I have money to put gas in my car so I can drive even all the way to Delaware to be with people I love
  • I still have a journal and I write in it constantly, so even though I’m not creatively writing, I’m still writing
  • I have things to look forward to, like weddings of friends and other events
  • I’m happy enough on my own without needing a significant other to be with me all the time.
  • I am strong
  • I can offer support to those in need of it because I’ve been through so much
  • I am worthy of love
  • I helped take care of some of the bills in this house when i first got disability checks, and I feel good about that.  I’m trying to pay my mother back for all the care and support that she’s given me over the years
  • I like that I can cry and let it all out and then be okay.  This hasn’t happened in a long time until recently
  • I got a little of that creative spark back with Lauren’s bridal shower this weekend while we were painting.  I loved it
  • I can’t binge watch tv anymore, but I can still watch a show… just much slower than I would have before, and I can enjoy it
  • I’m happy to be alive
  • I live for God and His beloved Son, Jesus, and I am proud of that
  • I may have more pain than before, but I can still get around, and for that I am grateful
  • I love myself for who I am right at this moment in time

So there’s a list to start.  I’m sure there’s more, but it’s 4:18am here and I’m falling back to sleep.  I just wanted to write this for myself so I can look back on it when I’m feeling down and know that there are positive things in my life.

Much love to you all!
