5 Things That Made Me Happy This Week

You know those weeks where you gotta put your big girl pants on? Well, it was one of those weeks for me. It seemed like every corner I turned, I was faced with being an adult.

The decisions. The money. The logistics of being a single girl. The responsibility.

This week it all piled on. But through it all, I have so much gratitude.

Here’s what made me happy this week.

Mammogram Time

It was a year and a half over due, yikes! Listen, I dread it just like the next girl. But I don’t take my health lightly so I splurged and got the 3-D mammogram, the new technology available now.

If you haven’t had one and you’re due for one I encourage you to make the appointment. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed and ladies, we can’t afford those odds.

With all the discomfort, expense, and fear that can come with this, I was so grateful to have health insurance and access to this crucial screening.

Meeting Becky

I’ve been craving connection with a fellow blogger. Meet Becky Cole author and blogger at http://beckyanncole.com/

Becky and I met through a Bloggers Facebook Group, and low and behold she lives in central Texas. So we met for coffee.

What a delight it was to get to know her, to share our writing woes and to know I have a confidant. Grateful.

Car Repair

Oh I can put one more box on top of the towering stack of boxes. Have you ever thought that when you’re in organization mode? I was quite proud of organizational skills. The tower lasted for almost 8 months. Until it decided to come crashing down on the hood of my car.

Yes, with multiple dents and dings by hood was a mess.

Lesson learned. Never park your car close to stacked boxes in the garage.

My car dealer introduced me to Mike the dent man. The mobile dent dude fixed my hood right up in about 30 minutes! As good as new. I was grateful.

Honing My Writing Craft

I started the Sticky Blogging course to improve my blog writing skills and I’m loving it. It’s challenging me that is for sure.

Suddenly I’m in stall mode because I want to implement everything I’ve learned so far. It’s overwhelming. But I’m grateful I have access to do this and the freedom to write and publish my musings.

So Long Coffee

There. I said it.

Good bye coffee, I’ve loved you for 25 years but now it’s time for you to go.

I gave it up two weeks ago. I’m moving forward, yes. But it’s been tough. I’ve drastically reduced my caffeine intake so things like cookies, chocolate, gum are really coming in handy.

Do I think about going back? No way. I’ve closed the door on it. I’m stronger than coffee.

I’m grateful for strength and the choices I have to make my life better.

What are you grateful for this week? Tell me one thing you found tremendous joy in…
