It seems that half my blog has become my blessings by now, but I guess that’s okay, haha.
It’s weird to live with a chronic illness, and have a lot of crap piled into my life the last few months. Like this week, I got painted a very depressing future by a doctor I spoke with. (As in, getting fired if I’m not feeling any better in a year and a half and many more dreadful things I’d rather not think about too much)
It makes focusing on the good things that much more important.
Being serenaded on guitar by Renate; our queen announcing she’s ready to become our princes and give her title over to her son and daughter-in-law; the course I’m following to help deal with being sick, and the positive things about my attitude and my way of life I hear there every single week; candles; Lipton Russian Earl Grey Tea; watching the latest New Girl; having my mom text me that she and my sister are coming over for dinner, and that they’ll provide the food; my sister bringing that glorious Indonesian food; my mother doing my dishes for me; several of my colleagues complimenting me on my positive outlook on life despite the challenges I face, I do my best, and it feels very nice that people seem to notice; feeling productive at work; not having to wear my snow boots every day anymore; my crazy cuddly kitties; buying pretty clothes for my upcoming holiday to Egypt; Carla’s spontaneous dinner and tea with chocolate visit during which we talked and talked for several hours; daddy helping me buy some cat litter at the hardware store; making one of my dream cakes myself at the first attempt; my comfy glorious couch and blanket.
