Reasons to be Cheerful

I am finding it really hard to find time to blog lately. I seem to be spending all my time dashing people or animals to hospital/vets! (wrote about it here).

However, I never miss my 'reasons' post, because it means so much to me. I like looking for the positives, especially when things seem a little chaotic.

Reasons to be Cheerful
1. Cardiff Comicon! It was, flat out, awesome. I got to see some amazing cosplayers, some of which I got to take pictures with. I got to meet the fantastic, and all round nice human being Bob Holly (American wrestler). Spending time with my teen, and teen nephew, just made the day perfect.


2. A calm week. Granted it has taken the tween to break his thumb, in all sorts of ways, so he got time off school. But, it has resulted in a happier, calmer child! 

3. I am, officially, debt free. Unless you have been in serious debt, you cannot understand the effect it has on your life. I was one step away from being bankrupt, just over 5 years ago. As of this week (apart from my mortgage) I do not owe, anybody, anything. Tonight, I think I may sleep.

Please take time to count your blessings this week. It's very easy to see the negatives, and forget the little positives that happen everyday. It does your soul good to look for those reasons you smiled.

Much love

  2. Fantastic news about being debt-free, I went through that when I was much younger and coming out the other side is a huge relief.

    Hope that you will write more about Comicon too: I will probably have to attend one of these events eventually, but I don't know what you actually DO all day?

  3. Debt free - wonder if such a huge change has contributed to that feeling of numbness. Sometimes our heads take time to catch up even with good stuff.
