It’s no surprise my blog can be a bit of a negativity fest. I’m a skeptical cynic, through and through, and besides, there’s way more drama (and blog fodder) in the negative than the positive.
Except life is entirely TOO negative right now. I have no idea if I’ll have a job come April and while I love my job, it’s currently making me feel a little dumb. Home life is fine, but with that niggling lack of job security, I know it’s going to be very easy for that to infiltrate my happy home.
Enter Grace in Small Things. The goal is to make a daily list of five positive things. I doubt I can do it daily — heck I can’t even write a blog post daily. But even the occasional reminder of the little things in life that are, in fact, pretty damn good, is a start.
- My father’s ability to take care of a car. Because I’m clueless, so when my car breaks down in the middle of an intersection, I need somewhere to turn before calling AAA in hysterics. That’s where dad comes in.
- Ben & Jerry’s
- Leftovers that you forgot existed. Makes making dinner after a challenging evening that much easier.
- Heat waves in the neighborhood of 35 degrees. Every little bit helps.
- 11:30 Seinfeld. I’ve been trying to avoid staying up late to watch, but it’s a guilty pleasure that ropes me in when I AM up.
