I sometimes feel sorry for myself and can’t really pinpoint why. But I was thinking today, and actually; life is really good.
I haven’t always had the best of luck – from needing spinal surgery for scoliosis, eye surgery for detached retina to moving out with a boyfriend it took me 2 years to realise was a knob. And most recently I was turned down for a job that apparently everyone except the decision maker knew I should’ve got.
When you think about the things that really matter though, the here-and-now and what will affect the future, I think we all have good things in our lives.
I’m in a happy, loving relationship with my soulmate, and we’re buying a house together that we love and will become our family home. We’re going to get a cat when we’re settled; something I’m so looking forward to. I might not have many friends but those I do have are great, loyal friends that I love spending time with.
I’m in a job I love (I’ve come to realise money isn’t everything) and a promotion opportunity is coming up soon. My colleagues are all lovely; this wasn’t the case until I changed jobs.
And finally, I’m attending Slimming World for me and only me; to improve my own image and confidence. I might not be greatly successful in my weight loss at the moment but my consultant and group are really supportive and give me exactly the help I need.
There’s not really a point to this post other than to say that there is always some kind of positivity to be found – look on the bright side even if sometimes life is getting you down.
