It was a good day. I get disappointed in myself sometimes when I don't react the way I want to react. I get over it but still I do feel badly. This world is so easy to lose your way in. So easy to forget the things that count. What is truly important. How little I really need to feel good and be happy.
Friends call me a minimalist. I look at it as less to take care of. Less to take time from important things. What is important to me you ask? Well time. Time to do nothing. Work on glass. Play video games. Talk to friends. Talk to my son. Work with my hands. Help people or just be quiet on a long walk. I don't have alot but what I have I like and use. I did break down and buy a couch. I needed one for a person my height. I was tired of feeling like I was sitting on a childs chair with my knees up in the air. I got a great deal on it. Half off and 12 months same as cash. Paid it off in six months so interest free loan. Did find out something interesting about that kind of deal. You really get eleven months to pay it off. If you pay in the last month they charge the interest. You really have to read the small print.
I walked today. Not far but still walked. I will tomorrow morning. Doing a mile or so to start. It is nice to get back in into the exercise again.
Things I am thankful for:
Making better decisions
Sleeping in a cool room under your favorite blanket
