We all have them.
Whether they be body image, exercising, eating healthy, family, friends, yourself.... we all struggle with something or things. The last few weeks have been difficult ones for me. I have struggled with a lot of things. Things that for a brief period of time, changed who I was, and I didn't like it. Over the last couple weeks, I have been taking time to work on me.
I know I am not perfect. I make mistakes. But I am working to better myself.
I've had long talks with my best friend about everything. She keeps me in check when I fall out of line. She has seen me at my best and she has seen me at my worst. She has seen the good in me when I have struggled to see it in myself. I can honestly say she was put in my life to make me a better person.
R and I made this past weekend a date weekend. Laundry and cleaning the house was put on hold for the weekend. We spend Friday night at the hockey game in town and Saturday by a bonfire in our back yard. Nothing extravagant, just the two of us spending quality time together. No friends, no outside distractions. It was great. Sometimes after 12 years together we tend to overlook the small things we love about each other.
All in all, things are looking up. I can choose to be optimistic or pessimistic.
My glass is half full.
