This advice includes "Surround yourself with people who make your world better and avoid those who do not."
Last week I had a really shitty week and all I could do was focus on the negative.
I couldn't find the light.
I was dwelling on all of the negative and not capable of seeing all the positive. But then I had an epiphany.
I have the best friends and family. I've followed my own advice and I've surrounded myself with good people. Granted, there are a few nuts sprinkled in there but that just keeps things fun.
Things happen. Sometimes they are good and sometimes they are bad. Sometimes they are very bad. Life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we react to it.
If I hadn't stopped focusing on the negative, I might have missed all these blessings.
My neighbors mowed my grass.
My friend and neighbor fixed my fence when a storm broke an entire section.
My coworkers made me laugh about noodles.
Other coworkers offered to help in anyway they could.
Another friend offered me a free pass should I need to fly to Singapore to check on my sick hubby.
My blogging buddies also checked in on me.
I received countless text. Numerous phone calls and even a bring-over-some-wine visit.
Hubby is much better. Thank you all for your prayers and concerns.
It's truly a blessing to have such wonderful friends.

Please leave some crack...um...I meant some comments.
