Subject: The positivity thread

Written By: snozberries on 08/29/12 at 11:00 am

not for nothing but this place has been all bad news and bitching lately so I thought let's turn this stuff around. 

Post something positive here... Something good that happened to you, something nice you wanna say about someone or just plain happy thoughts! 



At 1500hrs I start my vacation!!!!
I have amazing friends both online and in the  real world!
And I love my dog!  :)

There are so many wonderful people in my life but I want to say a word about my amazing sisters. Two of them have put their lives on hold for our father and now they are doing it for our mother. I am in total awe of them and if I can be just a little bit like them, I would consider myself lucky.

Hey ... I once started the same thread. Then, I got depressed and stopped posting in it!  ;)

Okay ... something positive.  I finally got a permanent position after being made redundant in April 2011.  :)  This is good news for my whole family as job stability is something we don't have to worry about for now.

I'm just loving life! And I adore everyone in it. My parents are my angels on earth, and I love my family because they are simple and fun and have always been there for me, just the way a family should be!


I snipped off my long locks recently to a shoulder length style and I'm super happy about it! After having long hair for so long it's a nice change so, I'm loving my hair too! hehe.

I am finally getting to see the "Glee" movie.  In fact, watching it now.  I wanted to see it since it was out in the theaters, but I knew hubby would not enjoy it.  So, I am watching it now since he is helping his friend move his business tonight.

Dear Princess Celestia,

This thread changed my life. I defy anyone to feel bad while singing along to this, especially in the context of the episode in which it's embedded.  (Seriously, if you have five minutes, just let it keep rolling after the song.)

That's awesome, Karen.  Is it something that he's interested in?  Cooking?  Or was it to celebrate his parents anniversary?  What did you have?  (No, I'm NOT trying to avoid housework at all by asking you all these questions, why do you ask?)  ;D

James did say a little while ago that he wanted to learn a little more about cooking.  Tonight we were just having pasta and meatballs with a small side salad.  I got him to prepare the salad.

In theory the kids are supposed to cook one meal over the weekend (their suggestion).  In practice they help one or other of us cook part of the meal and then wander off to watch tv!

When all is said and done I walked 30 miles (out of 39)


But if you include the time I walked around the closing ceremonies, back to my car, at the store after and then from where I park to the house probably closer to 32 - 32.5.

30 miles is a great distance to walk. back in my younger days I once walked a 20 mile sponsored walk and that took all day, and I did feel the better for it, plus the money gained through the sponsorship, but the thing I enjoyed the most was the conversation we all had while walking. By the way, no celebs for me that day.

In the midst of a bad work week something awesome happened.


I managed to impress the coroner by confirming the identity of the body that washed up on the beach before he could.

This is significant because it showed I thought outside the box and used resources he never thought of. I made calls without prompting to try and get info from the subject's hometown police dept.

I also made our dept look good because we are typically thought of as just "university" police ie less than the other agencies in town....they think we are slightly better than armed security guards when the truth is our officers have received the exact same rigorous training and are held to the same standards...and in some cases - because we have more money and our chief is an advocate of training our officers are better trained because they are sent to more classes throughout their career...

anyway- despite all I mentioned above - sometimes my guys are looked down upon but on Friday I got them to be seen positively...and the coroner's response impressed my captain because he generally takes for granted all the extra hoops I jump thru to make calls go smoother for an officer....seeing someone else appreciate it reminded him of how rare it is....and how good I am at what I do!  8)

Hubby called to check in with me right before an important meeting he is attending today.  Just wanted to see how I was doing.

In other positive news, I am working through an enormous mountain of dirty laundry.  It was getting bad, almost had to start wearing the formal dress clothes since everything else needed washed.  Finally finding the energy to do something... anything.

Me and my nephew are talking normally again, like we did years ago. I think I posted a few weeks or months ago that for 3 months we have been talking normally. But now we are back to normal fully. I think he's forgiven me for my exploding my temper due my depression/anxiety. And I've forgiven him for his adolescent stubbornness.It's also partly because of his personality. He's not the type of person that feels comfortable showing emotion or having someone show too much emotion. Everyone is different. But I also think it was partly because he was (and still is) an adolescent himself. I remember my hardheadedness when I was 15,16,17,etc, etc.

I saw something a second ago that really warmed my heart. A friend of mine on facebook posted a link about all these bodybuilders, and one in particular caught my attention:

http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/images/2013/nickscott_image1.jpg
His name is Nick Scott and he's a wheelchair bodybuilder.
I wrote this in response to the link about Nick:

The fellow in the wheelchair too my breath away. He's positively sensational and his picture should be everywhere for "handicapable" people to see anything is possible no matter thier "limitations".

It really did lighten my heart to see him and when I think how he could be an inspiration to so many other people in wheelchairs or on crutches, especially children, I wish I could just print his photo and plaster it all over the place.  :)

Can a parapeligic still work his legs? I mean I know he can't feel them, but is it still possible to work and build them? (I should know this, I lived with a paralyzed grandmother for 3 years.)

On a nicer note: Evan and I are on again for Sunday afternoon.  :) We were supposed to go out Friday night, but he got called into the hospital. (You know people cut up on the weekends, and more hands were needed in the ER.) I don't mind, his job is about helping those in need.  :) And he apologized so hard, you'd have thought he was a Doctor without Borders shipping out instead of a male nurse. LOL.

I know how some people struggle with it and I thank God, it's now coming easier to me. I can finally slip into those size 10 jeans I bought as a wish garment.
It's been hard, but I finally, really feel good about myself and my appearance.

I have been corresponding back and forth with a young woman online, and she got my attention because she kept writing negative things about herself, like #TeamAverageLooking and things like that. I wrote to her explaining she was beautiful even though I had never seen her picture, because she seemed nice, even if she was down on herself. It made me sad a bit because she said no one had told her she was beautiful before. And it really made me sad. Because I just wondered, hadn't her mom or dad at least said that to her? It broke my heart and I did my best to lift her spirits.  But she thanked me for being her friend and being nice to her.

That made me happy. But I'll keep encouraging her. All some folks need is a little push and a kind word.  :)

My nephew, who I have spoken about here before, who is a venomous brat, seems to be getting some divine punishment.

His father hasn't spoken to him in months, almost a year. Giving his son the cold shoulder. Now, you all know about my probs with the family.

Seems to me, that karma isn't just eyeing me, it's zooming in on him too. He's not a little kid, he's now 20 1/2 years old, 21 in November.

The way his father is being icy to him reminds me of the way he has been icy to me. And I know that it's bothering him. I'm usually very forgiving, but some peeps have taken me at my weak point, when I was ill, and kicked me when I was down. Time for things to go MY way for once. Thank you, God, or universe, or whatever.

Plus, it seems that me and my parents have started off on a clean slate, we just haven't talked about 'starting over' until this June. It's nice to have some positivity in our house for the first time, in like 8 years.  :)

I made a list of 90 things that are good about me, and good things that have happened to me in my 27 years of life. And it brang my positivity/optimism up. I always thought things like this was a bunch of clichéd, polly-Anna, bull crap. Turns out it's true. I'm more fortunate than I thought, and have more than I believed.

Not a dictation, but a suggestion. It works!  ;)  :)

Nothing wrong with playing Pollyanna's 'glad game'. Keep it up for as long as it takes.

As for me ... I'm not waiting for New Year's to make some resolutions. I started my new exercise regime today.  :)

Good job.  :)

Too bad, I can make 2 million 'glad game' things, but I still need to get out from my parents, my father has been treating me better, but my mother is utterly insufferable. Even my father can't be trusted 100%. I'm looking for a job right now, and getting the heck out as fast as I can.

I first need to work on my phone interviewing skills. They were dreadful. They're better now. I first need to get my interviewing skills sharpened first, Then a job. Then get an apartment.

But you're not completely wrong, I am indirectly looking for an apartment all to myself!  :)

My interviewing skills used to be dreadful at first, but after developing them and going to them on a semi-regular basis these past two years, I feel much better about them! This also applies to interviewing over the phone; I could do one without too much trouble. :)
