It’s so easy to get caught up in negativity.
Heavy traffic on our way to the office can have us cursing and bemoaning this stupid city we live in.
A snafu at work can unleash a slew of curses, driving us to the point of wanting/threatening to resign (like it’s just that easy).
Spotty cellphone reception and shitty data services can have us berating powerless individuals just trying to do their jobs.
I’m not saying we should trivialize our problems or our experiences but most of the time, we tend to forget how good our lives actually are. I’m very guilty of this and I’m trying to change that.
Every Tuesday, I’ll be listing down three things I am thankful for, as a reminder that “hey, things aren’t so bad.”
This week, I am thankful for:
1. My body. I gained a lot of weight in the last few years and I’ve had people on the internet (haha) try and make me feel bad for it. Fortunately, I’ve come to accept and love my body— fat rolls, lumps, and soft fleshy bits.
