Ten On Tuesday

When there is a lot going on and things get stressful I think it’s really important to focus on the good. To look at the small things you do regularly that are positive. To treat yourself like you would treat a friend. And so, today for Ten on Tuesday, the topic is 10 Things You Feel Good About Right Now.

Okay! Right now I feel good about

  1. Going to the Y 3 times last week. And making plans to go 3 times this week, too.
  2. Growing out my bangs and letting my hair get longer. It’s easy to take care of and I can wear hats whenever I want and I love it.
  3. Raising $1100 for Kiwanis at our Dale and the Duds fundraiser last weekend.
  4. Getting lots of compliments on our Halloween Party from our guests. We do it because it’s fun but it’s nice to know that people enjoyed themselves, too.
  5. Relaxing and reading in the new den. It’s so peaceful in there. I owe you pictures and they are coming.
  6. Starting my Christmas shopping. If yours is already done please shut up about it.
  7. Setting up my new laptop. It was pretty easy and I feel good about getting it all done so quickly.
  8. Stepping away from online games. I was pretty addicted to Bejeweled for a long time. And then I took a bad road and started playing Farmville 2. But I have shut myself off from that stuff completely. Yay me.
  9. Being caught up with posting photos to Flickr. I have been behind since missing 2 weeks while we were on our summer vacation. I think – if I don’t skip any days – that I will be completely caught up by the end of this week.
  10. Thinking of this topic. It’s a good one, right?

In the words of James Brown – I feel good! And I hope you do, too. If you wrote a post for today please click the link below. If you want to receive the weekly Ten on Tuesday email please click here.

    Good for you on the Y.

    BTW, James Brown is not the worst ear worm to bop through a day to. Thanks. I think.

    So much good stuff! It’s always helpful to focus on the positives in life . . . especially during the stressful times! (I haven’t started my Christmas shopping. At all. Feel better?)

    I feel good reading everyone’s “feel good” posts. You are so right about eschewing computer games. They can suck up precious hours so quickly.

    Christmas is coming? This IS a great subject. I needed it right now with all the not so great things happening. You know how to focus on the positive whether in RIL or virtually.

    I haven’t even thought about what to get anyone for Christmas much less shopped for them! I do have most of what I’m going to give our grandson for his birthday the end of November. That’s as far as I’ve gotten.
    Good list!!

    Excellent exercise. It’s always cheering to think of all the (smallish) things that are good about every day.

    Good on you for the fundraising! It always feels good to give back. I’m only doing a small giveaway on my blog at the moment, but it’s great timing for the topic. I enjoyed this week’s prompt – thanks! :)
