I’m feeling a little bit better about the move, closer to where I was at emotionally before last week’s sudden trip downhill. A little more “this will be exciting” and a little less “I’m going to my death bed!1!!1” … I mean.. I’m nothing if not overdramatic.
But in all seriousness, I woke up this morning with a more positive outlook. (AKA, my period is over.) And from this point forward, I’m going to try a lot harder to focus on the positives, and debunk the negatives.
Positive. Christmas is only a week away! We get to spend it here, Anthony is coming home, we have an extra-long weekend packed full of family and food, only to be followed by a repeat of that the very next week for New Year’s, I’m sure.
Negative. We have to leave the day after New Year’s and may not see family or friends until April. However. It’s not the end of the world. I’m a big girl, I don’t see my family on a daily basis anyway, and I will probably be so busy with work and
shopping til I drop furnishing a house that this first chunk of time away will most likely fly right by. Not to mention, if I really need to get back to Connecticut, it really boils down to me not being a wuss about flying solo (literally). Major perk of my job (no pun intended, Starbucks)? I can take any time off that my manager can afford to give me. I’m not limited to vacation time or sick days.
So that’s my positive spin for the day. And as for right now, I’m off to wrap the Christmas presents that have been sitting waiting for over an hour. Fingers crossed I become more positive and not less! 😉
