I have been trying to focus on the positive lately. This is quite hard to accomplish. You see the pessimist in me just takes over sometimes and I can't snap out of the grumps. Optimism is not my strong suit.
A couple of weeks ago, for some strange reason, I seemed to be getting a lot of compliments from my hubby and friends. "You are lookin' good" they would say. I would grumble back a thankless thank you, as I was sure they were lying to me. Pessimist takes over.
I decided to try my hand at a self portrait. This was the best of the lot. It's not good by any means but it helped me to see that I am starting to look better if not "good".
Blasted pessimistic nature!
All told, in the last year I have lost 45 pounds. That is nothing to shake a stick at. And by golly it has been a long year chalk full of one stressful event after another. So, maybe I can step back and let loose the optimist in me and pat myself on the shoulder and say...."I'm lookin' good"....
better at least.
Optimism is not my strong suit.
