I haven’t been writing lately. I’ve been so unhapy with life that every time I start, I feel my writing is too depressing and nobody would want to read it… Especially me. Despite my battles, I managed som small, MUCH NEEDED victory wins this weekend:
1) Took my first ever mental health day off work on Friday. No appointments. Not sick. Just a day for me.
2) I weighed in at -4 pounds from where I started two weeks ago. I’m meeting my weight loss goal of 2 pounds per week. The might actally be a chance I can wear my favorite dress again some day!
3) I finally have my foot in the door to the swing dance scene! I’m learning. Guys ask me to dance! I’ve even had a few conversations with total strangers! Swing dancing is so much fun! It is something I’ve always wanted to learn… Ever since I first watched that movie, Swing Kids.
4) I’ve been budgeting as if it’s still winter and my heat is running. However small… I managed to save a few dollars over the last two months. When I paid my bills, I was able to transfer money into my savings account. First time since I pit the down payment on this mistake of a living arrangement.
However small – these things are victories for me. They couldn’t have come at a more necessary time. I’m thankful for these small gifts.
