*I am broke… This is true. I am. This is one of the consequences of not being able to work for a whole year when you have a career that is dependent on the health of your body. But I have a roof over my head and food to eat and all the other necessities of life while still being able to pursue my dream. All the things that made it possible for that to come together for me this year was truly a blessing.
*I have a bum knee… This is obviously something I complain and worry about often, especially when earlier this year it started swelling up often and acting as if immediate surgery was imminent. But I have revamped my training and changed some things around, and I can go days without even thinking about it. Sometimes when circumstances force us to change things we would have been slow to change on our own, it can be a blessing in disguise. I’ll write more about this at a later date, but I truly believe this could be the case with my knee.
*I’m still single…but I might not be for long. ☺ Actually, that’s not the part that is the blessing because I have found happiness just being me and growing as a person and constantly learning about myself. And I do enjoy my drama free life, so being single is not always something to complain about; sometimes it’s something to savor.
*I am flat-chested...there will always be push-up bras. What other body part allows for this kind of quick fix?
*I get a fair share of rude comments on my blog…but I also get many positive ones. And at the end of the day, even the people who don’t ever have anything nice to say still find me interesting enough to even visit so that says something. It’s also been a free anger management course. These days I can read mean comments and simply erase them without posting them or responding and getting rude and sarcastic back…sometimes.
*It’s a recession…of course I don’t know how much it’s really effecting me directly because I’d be strapped for cash regardless probably, but I have never shopped less in my life. That is huge for me. In fact, my favorite shirt right now is my white v-neck from Target…if that doesn’t say recession I don’t know what does.
I guess my point is that I have a lot to be thankful for and there really isn’t anything I can think of to make me not be thankful. I am a blessed individual and I know that everything in my life has a reason and a purpose.
