Feeling pretty strong lately
« on: August 12, 2012, 01:30:03 PM »
I hate that I get myself wallowing in pity and lamenting over how things should be.  I truely hate that.   I have been focusing on the great things that I do have in my life.   I have a good job... it is rewarding and it also pays very well.  I have wonderful collegues at work. These are nurses who are strong and compassionate and a joy to know.  I have a wonderful husband who I can count on and who loves me dearly..    I have my animals that I adore.   My animals light my life.    I consider them my furry kids and I am mom 2 pets x 8.   I think we all need to take a look at what we do have and be thankful.   I am guilty of forgetting that sometimes.

LC - Really good point to my way of thinking. I take the time right before I go to sleep at night and again in the morning before I get up to list the things I am grateful for…and still sometimes forget during the day. Sending love...

I hear you too, LC and I'm glad you're building your 'self' muscles up.

And nurses hold an exalted status in my mind - up there with angels.

Great reminder, LC.  I've been catching myself in the end of summer blues...but I actually have a lot to be thankful for!

I think what's important is to not let others define you and who you are.  When we let them do that we are allowing them to control our narative, no matter how false.  I KNOW that I am a good person and have never intentionally done or said anything to warrant what has been thrown at me.   I know that I was a great mother who always did what I felt best for my children.   I know that I truly tried to be a good MIL and a super GM.  If I was rejected it was not my shortcoming, but that of the people rejecting me.... and it certainly is their loss.
