Life is a bit stressful for me right now. Not much I can do about it. It is what it is. But that doesn’t make it easier. In fact, for me (and I’m sure for many of you), stressful things that just have to be lived through are much harder than stressful things where you can actually do something.
So, in my continuing battle to stay upbeat, today I’m looking at the positives in my life.
- My family. You all know how much Beer Geek rocks. And my boys. Oy, they may drive me crazy, but they amuse me on a daily basis. My parents are the best parents ever. Not because they are perfect. Not because we never disagree. But because they are always 100% there for me.
- My friends. Both IRL and in the computer. They have my back. And my beer. And I have a few who’ll go gangsta for me if that’s what the situation calls for. ;o)
- My jobs. Seriously, recently I’ve been paid to help at race registration, to go for a run with someone, and to figure out all the ins and outs of a password protected google site. Really? You want to pay me to do something I’d do for free? You crazy, but I’ll take it LOL.
- My run. It’s come back to me. It may be slow and it may lack endurance, but three easy runs with NO PAIN lead me to believe I may actually be moving in the right direction again.
It’s raining out this morning and I’ve decided to let that be my excuse to take it easy on myself today. (Heck, I’m still sore from a three bike rides and a run on Monday + a run yesterday. And I won’t talk about my current hatred of burpees. WTH was I thinking?)
What are the blessings in your life right now? Do you stop on a regular basis and think about them?
