Things to be Thankful For

I have been miserable sometimes in the current few months of trying (and failing) to conceive. Then yesterday, all of a sudden, it occured to me that beyond that bubble of gloom that I live in occasionally now, I still have so many other things to remind me that my life is still very much blessed.

1. I have a job. And steady income.
2. I have a (more than) comfortable home, and it totally belongs to Hubby and myself.
3. My parents are well, happy and I am able to provide them with the best things in life.
4. I have such a wonderful husband who takes such good care of me.
5. I am living life with no regrets so far.
6. I have so many good friends – from kindergarden, primary school, ex-workplace, current workplace….
7. I have been having good-face days for months – probably from all the junk that I am NOT eating lately
8. I have been to Loch Ness
9. I have an Ipod
10. I actually like (most) people I work with

So, I guess I need to slap myself sometimes, and remind myself not to sulk too much. If one thing does not turn out right (yet), there may be 10-25 others that are worth smiling for.
