Working on the Positive Things in Life

When I got up this morning and was sitting outside by my pool and just enjoying the peace and quiet I decided that I was going to focus on the positive things in my life.

This recession has hit my husband and I very hard in the pocketbook and it's easy to start complaining about how unfair life is but really all that does for me is make me depressed and angry so focusing on what I "do" have rather than what I don't is what I plan to do.

It will be a one-day-at-a-time kind of thing, but I will strive to replace negative thoughts with positive ones.  I have even decided to write down all the good things I have in my life because once it's on the page it becomes more real.

As many know, it's very easy to get lost in the unfairness of living with a disease or illness that changes your life so drastically, but the truth is-it isn't going to change a thing!

So maybe I am the one who needs to change.  Sounds so very simple doesn't it?

Until next time:)

Boy, lady can I relate to what you have said in your blogs.

Sometimes I feel like I'm riding a yo-yo up and down, and someone is yanking on that string!

I really have to take myself seriously in hand, and say let's think of the blessings in life to be grateful about.
And even when the muscle discomfort gets nasyt, I say , thank you Lord even for this pain.
It seems to become more tolerable.

But, I have to work hard at doing this--:)

Know you're in my prayers.

Thanks so much, Klaire. I can't believe how many of us are out there. Women just deal with pain better I think and don't complain.

If my husband has a headache the whole day is shot. LOL

I do realize there are many men who suffer from dibilitating pain and this is not directed towards them in any way.
