As I drove to work this morning I was feeling quite despondent. Grumbling about having left my phone on the bed, having to stop and get gas, the pain in my neck, playing catch up in my finances while I still wait for insurance compensation, having to give my cat to who knows who, and feeling frumpy. Among other things.
Funny how things can change in a instant. Listening to good music and watching others in the hustle and bustle of a weekday morning, I suddenly recalled the wonders of my life. Yes, my finances are a mess as of right now, and stressing me out big time just because everything is pending until I get that and other checks, but I am far from being evicted from my home like a couple of my clients at work. Yes, I have to give up my cat, but am trading her company (that was much needed and appreciated for the past couple years) for that of some incredible friends that I am not always sure that I deserve. My neck is feeling considerably better even though it is bothering me, and matters could be much worse than they are. A good friend that I don't see quite frequently enough makes me feel wonderful about myself by just being her last night, and insists on buying me dinner. I have so many inspirational people in my life, new and old that breath something wonderful into my day to day. So many that I could turn to if I really needed support. Not to mention an incredible family and a great resource of knowledge, direction, purpose, and personal revelation in my faith.
Plus, it helps when a random new friend sends me an email this morning telling me that I am beautiful. Bless his little heart.
