One Word...

I was going to write a deep and thoughtful post about this, but honestly, the words are not formulating into coherent sentences, and I don't want to keep putting this post off. So, you lucked out, you will get something shorter.

Thank you to everyone who sent me what word they felt describes me. I'm trying to surround myself with positive thoughts this year. I actually told a friend of mine that this is the Year of Optimism (he's had to call me out a few times when I've slacked on it, but overall, I'm doing okay). Having wonderful friends who are always there for me is a great start to staying positive.

I've eliminated a lot of things (including some people) that were causing negativity in my life. Nobody has time for that, and let's face it, it's just not healthy.

I wrote down all the words I received from y'all and put them in a jar. If I'm having a bad day, I can take a word from the jar and know that despite what is going on- someone out there thinks I'm "fun" or "unique" or "beautiful" or "thoughtful". It might sound silly to you, but reminding myself of this is a good way to keep negativity from creeping in. And let's face it, a kind word can go a long ways.

Again, this post might not make a lot of sense (I'm having the worst case of writer's block at the moment) but even if it doesn't, thank you for being a friend (insert Golden Girls theme here). Much love to you all....
