Turning the page and continuing my journey

ImageOver the last year I’ve been working on self improvement.  First I was working on getting my weight under control.  I had been gaining weight slowly for decades now and it was time for it to stop.  So I’ve dropped about 45 pounds.  Then came the fact that I need to start going to the gym.  I was doing lots of walking but I still have this beer gut that I need to work on loosing.

Also there’s been work to do on my general outlook on life.  That sounds far easier than it actually is for some reason.  I have a lot going on for me and there’s a lot of things going right.  Lets take a look a couple thing…

  1. I had a stroke 3 years ago 
  2. I picked up and moved across country
  3. Oh did I mention when I moved I didn’t have a job

So life could be far more difficult than it is for me.  I could be physically impaired due to the stroke.  I could be mentally impaired by the stroke.  I could be without a job still. Even worse I could be living back with my parents because I don’t have money to live on my own.

So this week I’m dedicating lots of time to getting my attitude adjusted.  I’m going to work on getting a positive outlook on life.  I’m going to leave those negative thoughts that creep into my brain on the side of the road.  I’m going to be grateful if it kills me gosh darn it!

So as part of my life I’m going to work on posting here.  Sometimes it won’t be much but it will be something.  Maybe I’ll take my word a day that I do and start posting it here.  Making the sentence I create using the word a positive thought for the day.  I’m not sure how it’s going to work but I’m going to work on making it work.

So thanks for all the support and I really appreciate any feedback you may have about my post. Sometimes people laugh at this but I wasn’t an English major so I’m sure my writing could use some help.
