Sometimes, I Need to Remember...

Sometimes, I need to remember...
- that just because I have a bad day, I don't have a bad life. I have a great life.

Sometimes I need to remember...
- that just because I am in a funk, I am able to get out of it. I can choose my attitude.

Sometimes I need to remember...
- that just because I watch trashy tv does not mean I am unintelligent. I like bad tv, so sue me.

Sometimes I need to remember...
- that just because I don't have what is defined as a 'successful' job that it makes me unsuccessful. I AM successful.

Sometimes I need to remember...
- that just because I want to eat an entire chocolate cake does not mean I should. This is something I would regret.

Sometimes I need to remember...
- that just because some people do not like me does not mean I am unlikeable. I can't please everyone.

Sometimes I need to remember...
- that just because my life is not like your life that I am just as worthy. My choices do not have to equal yours. That is what make us who we are.

Sometimes I need to remember...
- that just because I make a lot of mistakes doesn't mean I don't do anything right. I screw a lot of things up, but I get the important things right.





I have not had the greatest week. Nothing serious has happened, but it started off with a silly arguement with GB and seems to be ending with a lot of anxiety and annoyances. (Don't worry - GB and I made up.)
I felt like I needed to write down some reminders for myself. I talk a big game about choosing my attitude and being positive when things get negative - so now is the time to follow through. I have too many great things going on to let some silly moments bring me down. So as I write this, I am going to make a microwaved mug cake - I'll share it with you later - eat it, and smile. Life is too short not to smile.

I hope you have an amazing weekend.

  3. I was not feeling that good this morning and this post totally just caused me to do a 180. Thank you for sharing this. It will certainly be added to my journal tonight.

    1. Glad that you were able to feel something good from this post. I know that at my worst times it's hard to be positive - putting it down in words helped me so much. Thanks for reading.
