What Are You Holding?

The following was originally posted on 9/16/08 on myspace. This is really for me. I was having a negative day...make that week so anyway I really needed to remind myself that things could be worse so stop complaining. Enjoy. ~

I consider myself a pretty optimistic person. Don't get me wrong. I cry. I get upset/depressed/angry. But for the most part, I try to focus on all the good things in my life. This is a constant thing for me as I go about each day…..

I woke up late….good thing I took a shower yesterday.
Traffic is slow…at least my vehicle is in good condition.
My job is trying…but I have a job.
Our dishwasher is broken…but I can wash dishes by hand.
We're way broke….but we have each other.
Our living room t.v. is slowly dying….but we have one in our bedroom.
My home is a mess at the moment….but I have a home.
My husband had major surgery & huge scar….but he's alive.
My son got into a car accident (X's 2)…but no one was hurt.
A "friend" really fucked me over….but at least they're out of my life.
Someone I loved died….but I was able to know them, love them, remember them.

When you focus on the positive things in your life, you don't have time to be depressed about all the things that are falling apart.

In other words…
You can't pick up roses if your hands are holding shit.

So, what are you holding?
