The Glad Game

Today I was having one of those days. Unexpectedly crazy busy, stressed and tired. Last night I got my first job offer in Florida. I was SO excited and had time all day to finally consume it. This new realization made my stomach and mind start to flip flop. I got home and begin to think of it more and more. Is this what I want? Am I doing the right thing? Over and over again. Finally I told myself, enough! This is what I have wanted for the last year, to move to Florida and change my life and be with my beau. I will never know unless I do it! I am tearing myself apart thinking of moving, jobs, life in Florida 24/7. I have to stop letting it consume my life. That's when I started thinking of all the wonderful things that make me happy and "glad".

Remember in the movie Pollyanna where all she does it tell people to think of something good when they are upset. It's the glad game! Oh my, seriously? But it kind of worked! The little things that truly bring a smile to your face. Here is my list of things that make me happy and glad...
