Good things

So I decided to start doing the list of good things, it's an idea copied from Bethany who copied it from someone else. I was hesitant at first of using other people's ideas, but it's a good one so I did it anyway. lol. I find it good to find something good in every day, it helps me refocus some of my energy. So here it is, I started late, so it isn't much, but enjoy it anyway.

August 22: I was told by my boss that he recieved three compliments today all about me and that customers would be returning because of me. It made me feel really good.

August 23: My friend Genia came to visit on her way home and we had a great lunch. I always love seeing Genia!

August 24: I realized after having my daily long sometimes awkward phone call with my father, that he calls for random things because I think he misses me. It felt good.

August 25: I got to see my roommate today, haven't seen much nor will I be seeing much of her until next week. Oh and I got off work 1/2 hour early tonight! Woohoo!

August 26: Got three phone calls about possible jobs in one day today. Feeling needed always makes me feel good.

August 27: I was offered the job I was hoping for at the bank today alleviating much of the uncertainty of my future decisions.

August 28: Was working on a display in one aisle at work and over heard two of my supervisors in the next aisle discuss how I was worth the extra money they are paying me over the rest of the new hires. It felt good.

August 29: Watched my first full award show with my roommie and had a hilarious evening.

August 30: Had the day off of work and managed to be productive building shelves in the laundry room and organizing a lot of it as well. I like to be productive

August 31: Had a good day at work, the boss made several comments that made me feel good and made me feel like I was a valued employee.


  1. I absolutely LOVE this list!

    I'm loving the obvious stuff - the direct compliments, the things you over hear.

    But what I really love is you being able to see the good in some otherwise innocuous circumstances. It shows how much your mood and attitude and outlook are improving!!! Dare I say you're beginning to be a *gulp* lighter and more optimistic person!!!


  2. If there are no original ideas anywhere then what does it matter borrowing the ideas from others as long as you give them props?

    Also, just to clarify, I would love you even if you sat on the sofa like a schlub, even though I would motivate your ass hardcore :)

  3. lighter and more optimistic? What? I'm not sure I'm willing to jump that far yet, I have a reputation to uphold you know. :)

  4. He is lighter, don't let him fool you. Dude has lost weight since moving in! (Unfortunately I have found it...)

  5. I love love love this idea and plan to steal it myself. :-)
    Of course it doesn't hurt being mentioned in the blog. ;-) Lunch was awesome and I hope to see you at Christmas time, too.

    Things are looking up!
