I've felt so overwhelmed lately. I'm depressed by so many things happening in my life and I feel myself spirling down. So my husband keeps trying to remind me that we have many things that are good in our lives. Here is my list to remind myself (in no particular order):
-I have a roof over our heads and safe place to live
-I have a husband who loves me and is there for me when depression and anxiety over take me.
-I have a smart, healthy, beautiful daughter who is absolutely amazing
-I have a great school to send my daughter to during the weekday when I am at work. The poele there are kind and caring and helping my daughter to grow into a wonderful human being.
-I have a job that challenges me and has pushed me to grow in ways I didn't know I could and will help me in my next position
-My husband is employed and his job provides the health insurance we need and the extra money to afford to pay our bills
-I have fabulous friends who support me, laugh with me (and usually near me, and sometimes at me :))
-My parents are still alive and are doing ok. They help me with my daughter and anything else I need.
-I have two running vehicles (a first for us in our marriage)
-I have many pets are interesting individual beings
-I have a good doctor, a wonderful therapist, and access to medications I need for my health
-Through yoga classes, iahve become more intune with my botdy and learned to be silent in my mind
-I have more than enough clothes and shoes
-My work products are valued at my work and I am a valued assesst (or so they tell me :))
-I have enough food to feed my family
-I can read and write
-I live in the United States of America
-I have met interesting people on LiveJournal and AOL (from over 10 years ago)who have shown me how similar and different life can be and different ways to handle challenges in life
-My family is helathy

Since moving to the far side of the world and therefore being unable to attend yoga I haven't seen you in AGES!!!! Must remedy this!

You + Me + Drinks of some sort...when?

That would be great. We never got to bring RIley to meet Mim when she was tiny....but I'm sure she'd love to play with a still kittenish cat. (I miss Snow so much).

Soon - drinks soon....maybe next weekend - the 18th?
