Reasons To Be Cheerful

I have been meaning to take part with this linky for quite a while in order to see the good things in life.  At times I have the tendency to look at the negative a little too much.  I especially do this when life is a struggle and looking at the negatives often makes my mood even less positive.  This needs to change.  This year has been a struggle but I am seeing positives through the grey.  

These include:

1)  The Girl is getting over being ill and has today gone back to school.

2)  The Girl has gone back to school after having 3 days off and I have time to get on with some time sensitive work.

3)  I have managed to have some crafting time this week.  This always cheers me up.

4)  I have had plenty of support from some wonderful people I have met online regarding an issue I am working through.  I had been down about things as they were not improving as quick as I had hoped but I was given support to persevere and see there is light at the end of the tunnel and the end of that tunnel is not that far away.

5)  I treated myself to a new candle.  Something simple yet relaxing when it is lit at night.  I love to watch the flame flickering away.

6)  A friend is driving over 100 miles to take me out to lunch on Friday.  We have been in contact quite often on the phone or net but it has been a while since we met face to face.  I am so grateful for this wonderful gesture.

7)  I am having a pick me up pamper evening tomorrow.  Manicure bits and face masks at the ready.

Really hoping you had a very lovely lunch.
I would highly recommend sticking with reasons to be cheerful particularly on the weeks when it all gets a bit much.
Have a lovely week
