5 Things

It’s been a hard year.  My life has changed significantly, & as we come to the close of 2015 I am disappointed at how little I accomplished this year.  My 2015 goals were abandoned along the road side early in the year out of a sheer need to survive.

But despite this being a hard year, I am grateful for some many things.  So here are 5 things that are going right in my life right now 🙂

  1. I am listening to Christmas music.  I know this may not seem like a big deal, but I assure you it is.  Last year I didn’t celebrate Christmas.  No tree, lights, decorations, or music.  This year I was so excited to begin the Christmas holiday that I had music playing on Thanksgiving.  As I listen to some of my favorite Christmas melodies I cant help but smile, and look forward to the Christmas season.
  2. I am picking up pictures today.  Now this may not seem like a big deal to you, but this is the first set of pictures I have actually had printed in years.  When I moved to CA, and started decorating my room, I hung several cork boards. However all the photos I have are close to 10 years old.  So I went through all my phones photos, and my online cloud storage, and selected a wide assortment of photos to be printed, and eventually hung on the wall.
  3. Star Wars is coming out in less then a month.  Need I say more?
  4. Yesterday Kiri, Sydney, Ken, and myself went to Disneyland for a family day at the park, and to enjoy Seasons of the Force.  While we were there we may or may not have taken this amazing picture.12307346_10205535694657551_7140249013968207326_o
  5. But perhaps the most important thing that is going right in my life is my decision to be happy, and move forward with my life.  It’s been a hard year yes, but I am not going to let those hardships define who I am or how I behave.  I have wonderful people in my life, and great opportunities.  So I am choosing to focus on the good instead of the past.
