I’m used to summing up my day as either good or bad, or worse, answering everything with “OK”. I wish I could be that person that has a positive remark to everything and an almost perfect, positive perspective on everything. But, I’m not. It’s so hard for me to focus on the positive things, but that’s mostly because of my anxiety and how I get stuck in a state of negativity. I wanted to push myself this week to pull the good things out of each day and focus on that. I especially like the quote “every day may not be good but there’s something good in everyday”. So I decided to write a list of things that made me smile this week and honestly, it was hard!
- Getting flowers from my girlfriend - Taking a sip of a warm cup of coffee - Watching my cats run around - Thinking about planning a trip - Reading a good book - Watching videos of my goddaughter - Seeing birds eat from the feeder outside - Laughing at an episode of Friends - Sitting by the campfire with my grandparents - Snuggling with my girlfriend - Getting a package in the mail - Reading a funny text from my mom - Looking at the weather forecast and seeing that it’s supposed to rain - Ordering something from Chapters - Finally finishing a project at work
I encourage you to make your own and see how many things you can list. It might be hard, but it’s worth it! Share your list with us on Instagram and tag @anxiouslyawesome so I can see :)
