That’s Who I Am – Thankful Thursday

I’ve realized that there is a lot in my life to be grateful for that I hadn’t thought about in a while. Things that I didn’t always have, opportunities that have come or passed or been taken or lost. There are too many to name in one post, because as soon as I hit ‘publish’ I will think of more. Every time.

Today, I will name one thing that I didn’t have that I have now for which I am grateful:


I am grateful for perspective and the ability to learn from the past, something that I lacked for a great deal of my life thus far.

There are times when I look back at who I was before and the decisions that I have made and I want to go back in time just so I can smack myself, but the truth is, I wouldn’t be who I was without those mistakes and screw ups.

I wouldn’t be me.

And though I regret things, I would not change them, because they are a part of who I am and who I have become.

I Can Feel It! Negativity! – One-Liner Wednesday

My sister once told me that I was focusing on all the negatives about people and my life that I needed to make a list every day that included one positive thing about everyone that I came into contact with that day (she was right, it did help.)

I still have a copy of all of those lists and now it’s something I like to do automatically when I’m getting too negative about things.

Ye are the salt of the earth. -Matthew 5:13

Salt is used to purify and to season, to make things better. Be the salt in the world; purify and make things better.

Computers and Cookies – Thankful Thursday

Got my laptop working again, but had to do a factory reset. Worth it to get it running again, though. I am grateful I didn’t end up having to take it in to the shop.

And that I still have a decent amount of that cookie dough from last week defrosting to bake.

Time Travel Isn’t Possible

Going to regret this sooner than I think
Only to hope they’ll still be willing to listen
But knowing that it might be too late

Sometimes, more often than just a few, we realize that we would do anything to take back what was said.
