So every single night I attempt to focus on the good in the day. I start a "3 Good Things" thread on my Weight Watcher's Board and choose the 3 best things that I can find in the day and put them out there.
I'm not going to lie -- some days its definitely more difficult to find something good in my day-- but no matter how miniscule something good is always there.
Always. Always. Always.
So today instead of focusing on my broken lady bits I would like to focus on the good stuff I got going for me.
So today in honor of my daily "3 Good Things" here are 3 things about me that I think rock :)
My Love- I am a passionate, intense, fierce lover. Chances are if I love you no matter you do to me I will find it in my heart to still love you. That being said I can't say I love a ton of people. Honestly most people bother me and annoy me. I’m socially awkward and it makes relationships a bit difficult for me- however the ones I have are pretty damn special. The love Rob and I share is beyond special. He gets me. I can’t put into words what its like for someone to just "get" you. He leaves me alone when I need to be left alone, he wraps his arms around me when I need arms wrapped around me and he loves me back unconditionally the way no one in this world ever has -- other than my parents. We have been through ups and downs and infertility (its a class all of its own!) and the man still manages to give me butterflies. I still get excited when we have nights off together and I still enjoy every moment we spend living this life. I don't take a second of it for granted. I also have some of the most amazing friends who wrap their arms around me and I in turn wrap my arms around them. I have so many rocks that I can call mine. I also have an amazing family. My parents have taught me to be independent and a hard worker. They taught me that you don't just get something for nothing- it requires effort. My mom taught me that a woman can do anything if she sets her mind to it. I have watched my mother move mountains to make things happen. She inspires me to do the same. All and all I am truly a lucky woman. I don't feel damned because my ladies pieces aren't exactly cooperating at this very moment- I just can't wait to share all this love once we are blessed with a life of our own.
My Ability to Multitask- I know what your thinking- sooo random- right? But its true. I am a dispatcher by trade. I spend all day long holding 3,4,5 simultaneous conversations. For some this is the stuff their nightmares are made of but the fact is I thrive on this craziness. Its something I love- the busier - the better. There is a sort of high you get when so much is going on and you can keep a handle on it. When shits hitting the proverbial fan and I can hold it all together, remain calm, and get things done. I take pride in it. I enjoy it. I’m truly very good at it and proud of what I can accomplish.
My Past- So most people write off their past. They stick in a drawer- push it to the back- and don't dare to open it up for fear of ripping open old wounds. Not me. I’m very proud of where I am now- compared to where I was then. Its no secret that I didn't exactly walk the straight and narrow as a teenager and young women. Lots of women dealing with IF often think "was it something I did in my past that places me where I am today". I truly don't believe that. If it wasn't for my past- the exact steps I took on the days I took them. The exact messes I made and mistakes and defining moments are what put me here today- and while I don't want to be dealing with IF and I don't revel in not being a mommy yet-- I truly believe there is a reason greater than I can understand right now-- that it just hasn’t happened for us yet. I’m proud of my mistakes because I recovered from them. I’m proud of the stupid things I did because I did them then and I am not living in them now. I’m proud of what I have overcome. I’m proud of me- who I am today and even prouder of who I will be tomorrow.
So there ya go. Three
good amazing things about yours truly.
If I can leave you with a bit of advice today it would be to focus on the good things. If your a Weight Watchers Member feel free to join us on the 50+ board every night where you can find some pretty amazing ladies focusing on their 3 Good Things as well.
If we always let the bad get us then we won't enjoy this journey. We only get one chance my friends and I refuse to let
one any struggle define my one chance and take away and strip me of all my amazing. Don't let it strip you too.
