Today, I walked over the pedestrian bridge whose construction has been the bane of my existence for the last four months.
Just watched a coyote walk around in my neighbor’s yard and then down the street.
Several lights at the office were replaced after being burned out for several weeks. It is nice to have it bright again.
The bridge looks pretty much done. The fence should be gone very soon!
Day is off to a great start! I just got something cool working after fighting with it for several days. AND I won a raffle!
Yesterday, I made a commitment to myself and said it out loud to make myself accountable. I vowed to put more energy into finding my way back to joy and power.
These are my first two thoughts:
While I am uncertain about many things, I do know that I would like to find someone to share my life with. For so long, I wasn’t sure that was available to me. I’ve since learned that I’m actually pretty good at being a significant other. It is just the meeting people part that it is struggle. I need to make a commitment to finding and trying things that expose me to more new people. This is a big and scary thing to commit to, since I usually make decisions based on avoiding new people.
I was keeping a gratitude journal, but it deteriorated into a blurb of thoughts about the day. I think I’m going to try sharing quick notes about moments and experiences that bring me joy. This might help me keep my attention on these things.
