Accentuate the Positive

Sometimes its really easy to get lost in the every day clutter of our lives and someone recently pointed out that making a list of the good stuff in life helps to put things into perspective sometimes. So here are some wonderful things I’m looking forward to, am grateful for, & am excited about…

  • Seeing all of my classmates hard work tomorrow in our class portfolio presentations!
  • Payday! I goofed on my 401k contributions and have been broke all month because of it, now that its fixed I can’t wait to get paid! Pasta/Rice for dinner every night & staying in? Snore.
  • Looking forward to Sunday brunch with my best friend, our cousin, and her momma, and then spending a lovely mothers day with my mommydearest.
  • Finally getting my apartment officially unpacked (only took 8 months) and settled into, including art on the walls! yay!
  • Realizing I live in a skull-infested apartment and loving it!
I think its time to rename my apartment from International House of Playgirls, to Skull Mansion. lol any other ideas?
  • Finding a book I thought I had lost in my move and being excited to read it! (My Utmost to His Highest)
  • Not having to turn on the AC anymore when it hits 90 degrees. (Have I mentioned how much I love my apartment?)
  • Front row parking all week because I stopped eating fast food (if you move your car after 4pm you’re basically screwed in this neighborhood)
  • Saying Yes I deserve the best, and No I’m not willing to compromise my core values.
  • Finding my stash of postcards and deciding to hang them as art.
Joseph Fitzpatrick Was Our Teacher, 1991 – Raymond Saunders, hanging in the Crocker Art Museum, I have this as a postcard on my fridge. :)
  • Making new friends because of film photography….now if only they lived in Sac…
  • Mac N Cheese w/soymilk. Nuff said.
  • Writing inspirational notes to myself for summer goals.
  • Kicking ass & taking names.

What are you grateful for this week? Anything you’re looking forward to? Talk to me. What would be on your list??

  2. Looking forward to celebrating mother day and sharing my gifts im suppose to be making (see friday blog lol). Grateful for my husb who does a lot.
    & on my list would be taking deep breaths because I dont do that often enough, actually letting things slide a little bit & …. sow emery an outfit with my grandma. She might be able to teach me something if she doesnt stab me with all the little pins first haha
