I'm feeling better this afternoon. It is the little things that brighten my day. Having turkey and dressing day at school. Ordering a pack of my favorite mechanical pencils from the office supply store and discovering, instead of the ten I was expecting, twenty four! Having a friend like Meli who has known me for more than twenty years (what an amazing number!), getting a microphone for my podcast education class and basically being told that I can keep it, getting a flu shot for $5 (FIVE DOLLARS!!!).
If I am honest with myself I am more of a pessimist than an optimist. I am a glass is half empty kind of girl. But I don't like being down or depressed or upset. I think in years past I would wallow in the gloominess, but not anymore. I don't want to live that way. It's a struggle some days and I have episodes such as yesterday. I'm still worried about it by the way, but I'm going to let it go for a little while until my new insurance plan kicks in and I can go straight to a specialist and bypass my sucky doctor.
I feel good that I can find things to be happy about today. THAT makes me happy.
