Perspective, Take 2

The last few weeks have sort of kicked my trash. 

At least, that's how I chose to see it.  

I got sick shortly after Christmas and remained sick for pretty much all of January.  They say stress adds to your bodies inability to fight things.  Hmmmm.....

My phone died. I know, the most basic of first world problems EVA but it was hard.  (Still is hard.  New phone isn't here yet.  Grrrrrrr...)  And while I'm thankful for the very real example that my little phone was taking up entirely too much time in my life, I miss the convenience of email at my fingertips, my calendar that keeps our house somewhat running, and apps that help me reach my goals.

Speaking of goals, I've been more than frustrated by one that I just can't seem to reach despite my best efforts.  I work and sweat and toil and choose and in the end, nothing changes.  This has gotten my down more than I care to admit but there's a lesson here as well.  I need to stop focusing on what's missing and be grateful for what I have.  I succeed in this in a lot of areas of my life but this one in particular is my krptonite.  I get it.  I'm working on it. 

Today, despite little sleep and an aching body, I got up, looked at my unwashed face and crazy hair in the mirror and laughed.  Because if I can't smile at this amazing life I've been given, with all the crazy mixed in, then what's the point? 

Smile today friends.  Find something to make you laugh.  It's going to be a good day. 

(My sweet husband posted this on my Facebook wall a few days ago.  I love him so.)

I wish I could kick whatever it is that keeps you from reaching your goal straight in the hinny. Or at least help you figure it out. I love your attitude though! And I love that Brad posted this reminder. You are good people.
