Enjoy Life

I just want to enjoy my life!

That may sound so easy to some but for some reason it's not for me, I'm way to serious. I have always been caught up in what is wrong that I need to focus on what is right.

I have to stop dwelling and worrying, it's really ridiculous.

I'm not a pessimist but I'm sure not an optimist, I'm a realist.

Some people are so happy and joyful no matter what, I just want to feel a little of that.

I just need to refocus my thoughts.

I am happy, I guess I just don't show it.

I am so blessed, I have the best husband and children, I love them so much and am so thankful to spend every day with them.

That is all that matters in reality, everything else just needs to back off.

Part of this may be conditioning, my mom was pretty negative and always worrying, glass half empty, I grew up around that example. It was always scarcity, no abundance.

I want to focus on the little things everyday that are important.

Stop worrying about what is *wrong* with me and work on fixing it.

I am awake and alive, each day that I wake up is a good day.

So what if I'm tired?

 I just have to get up and go and stop bitchin about being tired.

optimism and pessimism don't have anything to do with being real. they have to do with what you focus on... and what you focus on plays out in your life.

it's like the saying, "garbage in, garbage out"... as cliche as that might be, it's true, it's real.

I tend to be a depressed pessimist historically, so I start with the basics:

Every day above ground is a good one. My family loves me for who I am, not for who I think I should be. Everything beyond that is gravy.
