4 Days Closer To A Positive Mind

Day four of twenty one.  Read about my 21 Day Challenge here.  And just a side note but these posts reflect the previous day's thoughts and experiences.  I wanted to be sure I gave myself a full day to gather before writing.

Three Gratitude's:
1.  "Be thankful for what you have, you'll end up having more".  I found an old gratitude journal from a few years back.  I had written this quote on the cover.  Today I am grateful that I never stop trying.  Even if I don't succeed the first time. 
2.  I am grateful for Summer Hours!  At my company that means we work an extra hour Monday through Thursday so that we can leave on Friday's after only 4 hours.  It's such a treat to be out of work by noon.  The weekends always feel so much longer.
3.  It's taken me 6 months to find anything positive about the fact that I am no longer driving.  You can read about that here if you want.  I've finally got something though, see this new positive way of thinking is already working.  Today I am grateful for the extra time D and I get to spend together.  He's been driving me to and from work everyday and that means 40 more minutes together, it's nice :) 

Today's Journal:
Sitting on a curb eating a kielbasa and philly cheese fries in the sunshine.  I don't sit on curbs enough.  I don't eat at food trucks enough.  This feels simple and easy.  This feels like me.

Another day of trolling Comic Con.  This time for 2 hours.  I just couldn't get enough.  I threw in a little cardio aka running after a Storm Trooper so I could get a photo with him.  Oh my gosh I haven't geeked out this hard in maybe ever! 

I slacked on my meditating and only spent 10 minutes listening to another crappy You-Tube guided video.  I'm going to make it my business this weekend to find something that will better serve me.  

Random Acts of Kindness:
In yesterday journal I wrote about the powerful and incredibly positive feelings that evoked while having my hair done.  The person responsible for that greatness was having a rough day so I decided to share how wonderful she had made me feel the day before.  Her eyes got all sparkly and soft.  She felt good about herself knowing that something she had done for someone else had had such a big impact.
In turn I felt great for showing her something wonderful about herself.  It was such an awesome thing to witness.

I hope you're all having a beautiful day.  Thanks for reading.  Until tomorrow! XO
