Breaking the Curse!

I've been joking that we are suffering the wrath of some kind of gypsy curse, because we've seem to run across a streak of bad luck in this house.  I had to stop and ask myself, though, if we were really experiencing bad luck or if I was just focusing on the negative things and failing to recognize the positives.  Life is full of ups and downs, right?  I suppose it's just up to us to make the most of it, so that's what this post is dedicated to.  I am such a list maker.  It truly helps me sort everything out.  To balance out the negatives and take away from the attention I've given them, here's a list of things in my life, both big and small, that totally kick ass!

  • Being recognized at my agency's annual dinner and receiving a plaque
  • Reconnecting with a really dear friend
  • Bedtime stories with Oscar
  • Finding a favorite toy from childhood for $2
  • My first check from our flea market space
  • My husband moving to a slightly closer store and the small raise that went along with it
  • Parents and in-laws who are super helpful, especially when mama needs a break
  • My grandparents- They will always be on this list!
  • And all the rest of my family- They're all really awesome!
  • My flea market space partner in crime and the ridiculous texts we exchange
  • My work lunch buddy who always listens to my rants and silly stories
  • Two faraway friends in England and Australia
  • The most supportive, loving, and understanding husband a girl could ask for
  • Doctor Who, Skins, The Inbetweeners and countless other British TV shows
  • Playing with Lincoln Logs and wooden trains with the boys
  • Being able to completely unload on the most amazing counselor
  • Thrift shopping
  • Healthy, happy, and sweet children
  • Having my very own space to craft and work in
It feels really good to actually type out these things and I can feel the curse lifting already!  Being able to have this outlet, my blog, is a really great thing too.  Thanks for reading!!
