Happy Feeling Fabulous Friday y'all! I've decided that I wanted to make Friday's blog posts focused on the positive. Eliminate the negative, so to speak.

I have never been to an Alcoholics/Narcotics/Over-Eaters Anonymous meeting, but from I understand people who go tend to focus on all of their negative behaviors and the consequences of their actions. While I think it's good to reflect on bad behavior + action = consequence, we should also take some time to celebrate the fact that we, being multi-faceted human beings, have something positive to put out into the world as well. Everybody has value and something to live for.

I used to have a friend who told me if I ever said anything bad about myself I had to say 3 nice things about myself after that. I couldn't believe how hard it was, every single time, to come up with 3 nice things to say about myself. I have talked to a lot of friends and have found that almost all of them, especially my female friends, struggle with the same thing.

All that being said, Feeling Fabulous Friday is exactly for that. I'm going to share 3 things I like about myself, every Friday, and I would like for you to share as well, in the comments section.

So here's this week's 3:

1. I like my green eyes.
2. I make a kick-ass blackened salmon.
3. I am an excellent defensive driver.

Okay, your turn! Share your 3 in the comments!

Summer out.

When I was struggling with depression due to my untreated thyroid condition, I kept a happiness journal. Normally, those are just writing 1-5 things that made you happy, but I altered it slightly to writing 3 things that I DID that made me happy or allowed me to experience happiness. I felt the tying it to things I made happen and could control was a big self-esteem link. It worked very well.

Ok, that driving bit made me laugh my ass off. I'm sure what you meant to say is your an "excellent offensive driver" right? <3

1. I *love* being a mom. It has made me such a better version of myself.
2. I love my personality and humor. I hope others enjoy it too. There's nothing better than being able to bring humor in bad situations and lightening things up.
3. I love my resourcefulness. My middle name should have been McGyver. Others make lemonade out of lemons. I just think duct tape and some paperclips solves every problem.
