Positivity.

Guys, I am having a really hard time staying positive right now. A lot of job-related hopes have fallen by the wayside, and I'm feeling really discouraged. I'm trying to remember that even though I may currently have a job where I am unhappy and way underpaid, I still have a lot of wonderful things going on in my life. Here's a short list to remind myself of all the little things that make my happy & why I am a really blessed woman.
  • Best husband ever.
  • Fully-furnished/decorated home!
  • Fiero asleep in my sock drawer.
  • Dinner parties with best friends.
  • Being almost done with 30-for-30.
  • Watching & reading Poirot mysteries.
  • Photographs of friends and family flooding our apartment.
  • Homemade cheddar biscuits.
  • Sitting in bed laughing with my husband for hours at night.
  • Watching my cats chase a "magic bug" (laser pointer).
  • Saving what little money we have.
  • Being a college graduate; no homework, ever.
  • Mid-day naps.
  • Cereal and cold milk. 
  • Working up a sweat at the gym.
  • Looking at our wedding photos and remembering how perfect that day was. 

See, life really is great. Time to keep my chin up.

Becca-
I've always admired your optimism, your courage and your strength. I'm going through a similar experience (though under very different circumstances) and I know how difficult it can be. But you're doing all the right things. This too shall pass right?

I love you dearly.
