Since I have been have a harder time than usual keeping an optimistic attitude about life lately I have decided to do something a little different for lent this year. Rather than give up anything, I am going to add something to my life. I have decided that each day I need to come up with at least two things that were good about that day.
Today's Good Things
1. Today I had a good morning and a relatively good day.
-The last couple mornings I have been haunted by the events of last year and the events of recent days in my hometown. For some reason my brain thought it was a good idea to bombard me with these thoughts first thing in the morning and it didn't help that I am not a morning person. This morning was different though, I got up with no problem and bad thoughts remained at bay.
2. One of my classmates made awesome chocolate chip cookies and brought them for us to our 8:00am class.
-First of all, it was really thoughtful of her. Secondly, I have a weakness for cookies and they were really good. Apparently the secret is adding vanilla pudding to the mix, must try this next time I make cookies.
3. Had a really good laugh with a couple of my classmates when I discovered that I wrote 7/11/13 on two pages of my notes from class the other day.
-No seriously, I did. I date every page of my notes and put the wrong month on not just one but two pages of notes. My classmate suggested it may have been that I was wishing it was July. ;)
