  1.  Participated in a productive staff meeting. (Staff meetings at the house can be long and unfocused, since there are many distractions, but this one was short, on task and very productive.)
  2. Figured out how to change to color of the title of my blog.
  3. Ran my fastest two miles yet – well, since the beginning of the year.

  1. I revamped this blog (with Gayle’s help) to create something that I am very excited about and that will suit my needs.
  2. This one is not just today, but I’m proud of it so – I have run/walked at least a mile every day in 2012.
  3. Again, not just today – I am trying new things in the kitchen with a good amount of success.

Well, I’ve missed a few days.  The past few days I have been unable to think of three good things.  I came to the conclusion today that that is unacceptable.  If I can’t think of 3 good things about my day, I haven’t been paying attention, which is the whole reason for this journey – to pay attention.  So, here are today’s three good things.

  1. I remembered to buy a sympathy card that needs to be mailed tomorrow.
  2. I started back on my 5K training.
  3. I left food on my plate at lunch and dinner.

I started to put “I returned to recording three good things” but thought that might be a bit like cheating, so I didn’t.  But I do feel that it is a good thing that I’ve returned to focusing on the positive.

  1. I did the dishes right after dinner, instead of waiting until late.
  2. I spoke to clients with confidence, answering their questions without hesitation.
  3. I practiced engaging in conversation with a number of different people instead of  trying hard to avoid and turn away from back and forth conversation.

Here are my 3 things for today:

  1. I fixed lunch at home instead of going out.
  2. I asked someone if what I had done upset them – which is a break from the usual of just avoiding it (it hadn’t upset them, in case you were wondering)
  3. I remembered to do a load of laundry that needed to be done before it was too late.

Some days my good things might be silly, other days they will be profound.  Some will be easy to think of, others not so much.  But here’s hoping that by making myself think of the good I am doing I can lift myself up out of this nastiness that has become my pattern.
