The idea is, as soon as you're forced to pick one good thing, a whole bunch of good things will pop into your head. We've got to force ourselves to think happy thoughts. But try to only list one.

I will start. But since the day is still ahead of me, to some extent, I'll say something good that happened yesterday:

I helped my younger brother study for his math test.

The old thread has unfortunately had to be closed due to its size. Can anybody say reboot?

Two words. Deviled eggs.

If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.

I took the night off from cooking and I'm getting pizza from a real Italian pizza place. I'm excited. Pizza is one of those things that I can't make without a pizza oven, unless it's the frozen crap.

I had a wonderful dream I was petting and playing with Cosmas. He was happy and it was so nice.



I still miss him so much.

I think I wrote this exact thing in the other thread, but this did happen today, too:

I went to a restaurant after work, and the food and service were so good. (Yes, I go to restaurants at least once a week.) And today was "free pie" day at the restaurant.

Went to a second hand store I had never been to before and found a bunch of tools. Old fashioned quality like they don't make it no more. Even two hand drills that I had been looking for for a long time. That and some materials for a project I'm working on. They practically gave it away too. Plus it was in a run down place which's roof even leaked here and there. That is a real novelty in this country. Nobody gave a damn here either, no falce pretence or hipsters in sight.

Saw some trees in the park full of pods on my way back. Patiently waiting there for me to harvest the seeds from them in a couple of months :-)

I saw my old therapist today. She was my favorite, and I lost her services three years ago when she retired. She came over and sat down next to me and talked to me for a few minutes. It was nice.

I got a part-time job. I'm thinking about working there for long-term so throughout college. I'll see how that goes. A bit nervous because the manager told me straight up that because the coworkers are close to one another, there will be a lot of get-together outside of work.

I'm just hoping this won't be a repeat of history again

Even the ugly duckling can become a beautiful swan <3

I tracked down a photo of a great-great-grandmother that I haven’t seen a picture of before. This is a big discovery.
