This is February and I am well on my way to attaining a goal I set for myself. I am trying to post every day with happiness and gratitude that I have encountered that day. There is always something no matter how small it may seem that we can be grateful for and even just a shared smile can make you happy if only for a moment. Please try to find those moments for yourself too… if you’re up to it I would love if you would share them too in the comments or your own blog. Being aware can really turn a day around!
If I was on any kind of diet (I’m not but I should be) boy did I blow it today! I have felt lousy all day from my fibro and in my head I still hear my Mom saying “chocolate cures all” and so I eat junk when I am feeling bad. At least I had a good dinner with a salad and some yummy jambalaya type dish. Now as I sit alone again I am wanting to snack. I know I am not hungry though. Just one of my struggles.
So today has not been one of my greatest days but I did find instead of coming unglued I focused on some jigsaw puzzle work. I can’t really work on a puzzle with a cat around but I can do an online game of one. That kept me distracted from the pain for a while this afternoon.
This evening I was looking forward to watching something with my boyfriend, but he was tired and took a nap. So it was me and the cat again back at the puzzles and reading some WP posts. I did force myself out of the house to get my Dad some dinner and although it hurt, I got it accomplished… that is something for the day I guess.
If I have to pick something to be grateful for today I would say it was my laptop. It gave me the distraction I needed a couple of times today. I was happy to find I could still get a puzzle together fairly fast. Although I never felt brave enough to try expert mode. Is there some game or activity you haven’t done in a while you wish you had time to do?
