Because the last five days have been filled with entirely too much sadness, anger and bitterness (that even snickering at losers on Facebook can’t numb), I need to focus on some positives in my life.
- I went to the 20SB Summit a week ago and met Molly Ford of Smart, Pretty and Awkward. She was a sweetheart and I fell in love with the simple but insightful premise of her blog. Today, I found her post title especially suiting so I stole it.
- Work is good. I really hope I don’t jinx that by admitting it, but I have to say that it really has been going well lately. And I’m not just referring to the work that I’m doing or the opportunities that I think may be coming my way, but the people. I work with some great people. Some of them have been there in the trenches for the last two years. And, in the last year, I’ve grown closer to a few more. Aside from knowing I can count on them at work, I’ve learned that I can also count on them outside of work too. Thanks guys.
- Joe is back. He’s safe. In Iowa with just one last year in school to go. 2011 has been really tough on the two of us and while our relationship is a little more on the “it’s complicated” side than either of us would like, him being home is something I’m really grateful for. Now I just have to figure out where I go from here.
- Books. I read two books this weekend and I’m craving more. Started The Hunger Games trilogy and finished the last of the Pretty Little Liars books (don’t judge me, I can’t get enough of the show). Admittedly, this has me excited for the VMAs tonight so I can see part of The Hunger Games movie trailer.
Now if only I can keep positive thoughts through the week I’ll make it to labor day weekend. I have a wedding to go to–oh joy.
