good things hmmmmm (not in any particular order)
Closeness w/my familiy
Not letting stupid things bother me anymore
Enjoying the little things
Learning how precious life and health really are (it's a journey)
Oh and I may get flamed for this but I also sometimes exaggerate it to a friend who I love but is truly delusional to get out of hanging out w/her. When I have already used the I just do not want to "the truth", and every other excuse in the book too many times (she's a bit needy) and sometimes I have to tell her NO like 5 times for it to get through her head. She wants to hang out 3 days a week sometimes and I have point blank said to her too many times to count (she forces you to be brutally honest there is no beating around the bush). I do not hang out with anyone 3 days a week, I do not want to commit to hang out with you 3 days a week or any other number of days a week, I do want to hang out with you or anyone else 3 days a week or any other number of days a week. Seriously I have said this and many combinations of this and it just goes right through her.
I love finding the silver lining. I have too or i'll get depressed!
