The Heart of the Matter

12 Mar

I used to think I was an optimist, but as I’ve gotten older the dial seems to be inching closer and closer to a more realistic place. My grand plans always seemed to work themselves out in my dreams. I wouldn’t imagine any obstacles, no trouble. That’s great for a childhood imagination but not so great for a practical adult.

I’ve never been one to pay much attention to “the journey” either.  Granted, I have gotten a bit better but I do like to get where I’m going- and quickly. .  My recent stint without work has showed me more than ever that things have a way of working themselves out and in it’s own time for that matter. It’s practically become my unemployment  battle cry, but I’m determined to believe it. I’m ready for bigger and better things. With cautious optimism, I say bring it on.

This week has been a bit of a downer. Emotions running a bit too high and undue anxiety running amok, and I’m totally over it. So, I’m changing it. I saw this listing on one of my favorite blogs (Sofia’s Journal) and decided to give it a go. This week I will be posting 50 things that I’m grateful for and bring me happiness. Please join in if you feel so inclined. It’s a good exercise in “happy” :)
