Feelin' Good

10:31 AM |

A moment of positivity......

All too often on this blog I write about things that bother me, things I hate, things I think are stupid and it's been good for me. A great way for me to release my feelings without having to upset or alienate anyone I know. But today as I was dwelling in my irritation and my overall disdain for everyday things, I stepped on the scale and realized that I have reached one of my weight loss goals. FINALLY!

Helen Keller has this great quote: "When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us." I think it's very easy for us to see what's wrong with our lives. It's something that we're constantly reminded of, have to deal with, work around, etc. And it makes it easy for the good things to pass us by.

I've been truly burned out these past few weeks. But when I took a step back, in a phone update to my mother, I realized I've got some great things on the horizon: possibly having a video installation I've worked on with my co-workers in a museum, possibly helping to shop a collaborative piece to a major tv network, getting great reviews for a piece or two I've worked on with my co-workers by our new school president, getting praised for the show I've been putting on at the school, losing weight, eating better, feeling great.

So if you do nothing else with your day, take stock of what you have accomplished and the progress you are making towards your goals. Acknowledge the sunshine in your life from time to time. You'll feel much better for it.
