I have seriously overhauled my attitude these past few weeks.  I truly do believe that your attitude plays the biggest role in how you feel on a day to day basis, and with that in mind, I have committed to maintaining a good attitude whenever possible.  Of course, sadness creeps in from time to time.  That happened to me yesterday and a little this morning.  In the past, I might have allowed myself to dwell in those feelings for a day (or three), but fuck that noise. Now I’m addressing it head on.  I can feel it for a bit, and if I need to cry then I will.  Then I get up and turn on “Shake It Out” by Florence and the Machine.  Singing and dancing to that song never fails to put me in a better mood.  Then I will write a list of the good things I have going on in my life.  Here’s my list:

  • I can’t believe it is already Friday.  I love short weeks.  This one flew by.  I’m quite excited for this weekend.  I pick up cute face this afternoon.  Tonight we have dinner plans with old friends.  Tomorrow we have much shopping to do.  Sunday night I’m going to a highly anticipated concert with Ann (and hopefully my super cute cousin). Plus, there will be much working out inserted throughout.
  • I can feel every muscle in my body because I have been working my ass off at the gym.  I’m in the best shape of my life.
  • My relationship is better than ever.  Proper communication really does make the biggest difference.
  • Lake trip!
  • Business is going really well.  Sometimes I look at what we have built and I can’t believe it.  We quit our jobs with $6000.00 in the bank and an idea of how we thought a law firm should be run.  Look at us now. It’s amazing and wonderful.
  • Rekindling relationships with old friends and family has me feeling really happy.
  • I feel like all of my relationships are stronger right now, because I am putting the effort into them that they deserve.
  • I’m moving to my dream apartment, in my dream location, in less than two weeks.
  • I am lucky enough to be loved by many amazing people, and they are not shy about letting me know it.
  • Every day I feel the grip breast cancer has had on my life these last seven months slowly loosening.

Life is good. I have to remember how lucky I am.
