I've noticed on these boards, and in life in general - not try to make false accusations or anything - that people tend to talk about all sorts of stuff that's just so - well - almost, depressing... from how their work sucks to all their relationship woes, who they've cheated on, and who's cheated on them... and all that. And I've just gotten in one of those moods where I feel like saying, "That's enough! Things have got to change!"
So, I've decided to make a thread specifically for us to appreciate the things in our lives that are awesome.
For me, well, there are actually quite a few awesome things about my life. Saving the best for last, and starting with the second-best (he'll understand)... I have an awesome husband. We're perfect for each other. He's like pretty much everything I like and everything I've wanted, and he's made my life so much happier than it was before I met him.
Then, there's our home. It's everything I had made a mental list of that I wanted. It's a decent trailer, kind of in the country but not in a trailer park, just a couple miles from my school, for fairly low rent, with free lawn upkeep and seven awesome neighbors.
I am on the way to, despite what most would expect, starting a good career with the help of the dean of the school of business who respects me as one of his "most logical" students. (Is that a good thing?) And, in the mean time, we are being taken care of financially, and I even have a decent credit card that I got through a good credit record that I had no idea I had.
And whether people like to hear it or not, my God is awesome; and He always looks out for me and gives me so much, even when I don't deserve it. Based on who I am, what I have, and what I've done, I shouldn't even still be alive and have all these awesome things to think about.
I mean, I'm socially impaired, used to be harder to get along with than I am now I suppose. I really never had the shown interest of any guys before the right one came along and had made VERY few friends until I got my life straight. And, besides, I'm so odd I thought I'd NEVER find anyone to relate to, lol.
I'm visually disabled and have not really had the opportunity to make a name for myself financially; but yet we're doing good. I couldn't ask for it any better. I mean, me and Wallie have talked about this. As much as people never expected me to make it on my own financially or just be able to face the world in general, we've got it pretty good - better than our parents did even.
And I am being basically given this education that I couldn't have had otherwise through scholarships and whatnot. And, with the way God's given me His favor thus far, these people don't need to worry. I know He'll give me a good job when it's time.
Come to think of it, these days, I have it better than anyone that ever thought I wouldn't make it. *shrugs*
