After reading mama Carla's Blog about all the little things she is grateful for I decided that staying positive and remembering the things I am grateful for is HUGE while I am out here.... so here I go. Just yesterday while out walking around climbing up hills to peoples doors I started getting a little negative but than I said to myself "what is something good about this?" "Exercise, I'm getting free and hard exercise all day long!" I laughed and from than on I started selling again. It's amazing how the little things can really change things around. Out here in NC its like I am in the mountains everyday, there are beautiful trees everywhere and its so green. I love it. I am so grateful for my family, now my two families! They are both so much fun and Brett and I are truly blessed. They both helped out so much with the wedding and continue to help us out. I am grateful for my friends. I have the greatest and most real friends. We can go sit on the west wood baseball field for hours just talking, eating candy and drinking our energy drinks and enjoying every second of it. I love the simple times with my girl friends, I'll always remember them. I am grateful for our free internet service here in our apartment cause than I can blog... I'm grateful for warm showers after a long day of walking, a soft comfy bed to rest in and of course my husband Brett who supports me daily and loves me! Thinking of just a few of the things I am grateful for really has put me in a great mood. It's so important to remember the little things because they make a huge difference.! Try it out!
