Focus on the positive...

This week has a been a wee bit stressful for me and I've decided now is the time to turn it around.  First step: Focus on the positive.

1 - I finally finished the American Flag afghan I made for my friend Andrea and gave it to her.

2 - My cabinet doors are finished and a good friend came over to hang them for me.  Proving that I don't always have to do everything by myself.

3 - I haven't lost any weight this week but I haven't gained any either.

4 - My body allows me to work out every day. 

5 - I have a supportive family.

6 - My toe is finally healing.

7 - It is almost the weekend and I have a fun project planned.

8 - It is finally starting to feel and look like spring.

9 - I can be proud that I stood up for myself even though the result wasn't what I wanted. At least I had the courage to do so.

10 - I am blessed to have a wonderful son.

This was one of the longest weeks of my life. Your afghan is lovely. At least you didn't gain weight. Yes,you do have a lot to be thankful for. It's so hard to remember that in the trenches. Hope you have a good weekend.

That afghan is amazing! I cannot do anything like that. Very cool!

I also agree with your #9. You DID stand up for yourself even when they tried to intimidate you. I am proud of all you do and the person you have become. It's good to see that you are too. You deserve all the good life has to offer.
