She supported me in walking through something potentially uncomfortable.
It made it easier to walk through it because I knew she had done it before and I appreciated her openly offering to be there for me without me having to ask.

Glad we have more than one bathroom, and that fixing the toilet isn't urgent.
Although it's a pain, and going to cost money, it could be worse! We are fortunate to have the house we have.

Knew how to shut off the water when toilet sprung a leak!
Don't know what I would have done if he wasn't home. (our house would have flooded!)

An epiphany. I am responsible for my own happiness.
It made me realize that, even if someone does something that hurts me, if they are at fault, I must be responsible. I, let me repeat that, I am responsible for my own happiness, my own choices, my own future. I am responsible for choosing my reaction and, therefore, my own happiness. Thank you, Will Smith, for making that clear to me.

My oldest for picking up our youngest last night from fb.
On top of not feeling well, it's nice to have him do that so I can stay home and not have to wait.

A friend I have known for 30 years (and live with as 20 somethings) called me to share positive things happening in her life.
My heart felt uplifted and the negativity from a blind date last night fell away. She heard me. She understood. We will talk more this evening on a longer call :)

My cat greeted me at the door when I came home from work. Then we spent 10 minutes playing and brushing her.
Just looking forward to this time of day lifts my spirits and reduces my anxiety.

I had some quiet time at home to rest.
It reminded me of the wonder of having my own safe space I call home where I do not have to fear anymore.

Free Starbucks is always great! Got to try a flavor I never thought I'd like (Salted Caramel Frapp. -- good, but rich!)

I'm making headway on my art room, and was able to organize/prioritize my projects/Project ideas so I know what to work on first without feeling apathetic (more "do-able" ones). Have a new motivation to create.
It feels good to get back into my art with a purpose instead of feeling apathetic about it (which is how I've felt for awhile now), and to feel like I'm not wasting my supplies!

It stopped raining for 2 days now, and we've had lovely weather, and I was able to go on a bike ride AND didn't wipe out!
It is always great to get out in nice weather, and it's always great to be able to ride my bike.

Alhamdulillah, i got up in the morning today with no feeling of anxiety or stress. I am feeling thankful to my Lord God that he has protected me from any unpleasant news or event. My body is healthy, feeling relaxed, no pain in body or feet. My back is flexible and strong. I thank Allah for all His blessings.
It reminded me about my Lord's immense blessing on me.

I thank my Lord my God, the One who is always Loving and Merciful to have opened a window within me, allowed an insight to realise how great is being grateful. Being grateful is transformational, it has a healing effect on me, it fulfills me, it makes me realise that how blessed I am, how kind has been my Lord God on me, how wrong and misdirected I was in my search for happiness and tranquility. He has blessed me with so much, and there cannot be a state or situation when one can be unhappy. Its only about the realisation, the insight which comes and only comes when He allows. Thank my Lord, my God, Allah for blessing me. He is kind merciful and all blessing flows from Him.
I am so happy, i am joyous, i am blessed, my perception of happiness and bliss is changing. May God guide me on the way. Ameen

I was so grateful to have dinner with my friends Dixie, Kama, Matt and Jeff tonight. I am moving away and Dixie made a special effort to get us all together.
I was so happy to see everyone in person, we had fun and laughter, and a lovely dinner.

My friend and co-worker worked hard to make our show a reality.
Our show will look great because of her expertise in the craft area, a specialty skill that I am lacking in. She directed our crew well, and our job got done well and on schedule.
