For the next week, I'd like to challenge each of you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day. Be sure to link up here once you've posted your list.
~I'm happy because...
I had a wonderful Christmas with my family!
I should have DSL before the end of the day! No more dial-up internet, YAY!
While it snowed several times this week, it either didn't stick or it melted quickly!
I'm having brunch with a friend (possibly more, not sure who all is coming) later today!
Sadly, I still have no plans for this evening. Hopefully that'll change after brunch today. I really don't want to spend the evening alone with my chi's. What are you doing to bring in the New Year?I was thinking yesterday how this week has been disappointing for various reasons. While I was busy feeling sorry for myself, it occurred to me that the whole year has been disappointing overall. I had so many hopes and dreams this time last year. But with 2011, I feel like I'm actually doing something to change my circumstances beyond just applying for tons of jobs and only getting interviewed for a tiny fraction of them. I feel a lot better about the coming year. I'm actually really looking forward to it!
Not having much luck with blogs the last two weeks. The one I chose for Blog of the Week this week has been deleted! WTF?! I was going to post about a young girl's journey with cancer. I discovered it a few months ago from a post on someone else's blog which linked to it. I decided one day last week to read it from the beginning and got through quite a few posts. I didn't follow it but bookmarked it instead and when I went back to it this last time, it was gone. Very disappointing. Unfortunately, the blog originator had apparently been receiving inappropriate comments for awhile and the decision was made to pull it. It makes me sad because now I won't get to learn how her story ends - whether the treatment she receives will bring her into remission once and for all. I hope she decides to blog again one day because I don't want to always wonder.
It also makes me angry because I don't understand why anyone would leave her inappropriate comments. She was sharing her story only. She never once, that I ever read, asked for donations or seemed to hope to gain anything from blogging. The only thing she ever asked for were prayers.
I just found another blog that looks interesting so I may use that for next week's Blog of the Week.
