Friday Happy Post Time

Hello! I have a lot to be thankful for this week and it's lead up to me being i a very cheerful mood!

Early morning run on Wednesday, smashing it before going into a big long boring "team building" meeting at work, photos of the thunderstorm on Wednesday, getting approved for a house - and it being THE place we wanted, planning things, looking forward to getting to know a new area, chilling at Gluttony yesterday with Callum and seeing a gorgeous Ewen McGregor type in the street, Jake cooking dinner last night, throwing out stuff I don't need anymore, packing, the gorgeous sunshine today, being involved in the lovely Em's video about running, not being completely disgusted when I see myself on camera, little mrrrr-pa noises made by my cat, writing lists and ticking things off, new opportunities, and of course other happy bloggers!

Ok, off to pick up my friends puppy dog at the vet so I might add now, picking up a happy dog at the vets and laughing at his cone head.

Well last week I was such a misery guts I totally piked out on just the second week of "happy posting" - probably at the time I needed it the most. This week has been a bit of a roller coaster too so I am making the point to sit down and take the time and acknowledge the things that have made me happy during this time. House hunting has become the focus of my time at the moment, and it's something that's throwing me through a loop - I can't stand this feeling of limbo, not know where I will live, even what area I'll be in, so I can't even do research into how I'll get around, what will be a great local cafe, where can I go running, I can't imagine how my life will be in just a matter of weeks and this kind of thing really gets to me.

So instead of focusing on all these factors I have no control over, it's time to take a big deep breath and give some time to the things that have bought me moments of happiness this week.

Running 12kms for the very first time and feeling strong the whole run and finishing with nothing left, getting a second wind, my gorgeous friends on Twitter, sitting at a cafe in the sun on Tuesday with my best friend Callum, remembering it's my 5th wedding anniversary tomorrow! (where does the time go?!!), fresh bed sheets, my gorgeous friends' first baby arriving - so happy for them!

So there hasn't been a lot because I've been so focused on relocating my life, and letting the stress and negativity get to me. Every day I am going to work a bit harder to put positivity out there and hope in return some good will come back in my direction and I can get on with my life.
