I Love My Life

I'm in pretty darn good spirits considering I am battling a head cold. I could use some chicken soup and a back rub but really, who couldn't? Heh. So it's 2007 and I feel fabulous because you know what? I love my life.

I've got a great job with wonderful people doing meaningful work. It takes me 10 minutes to drive there and I never have to hop on a freeway. I've got a cute apartment in a quiet neighborhood with neighbors who are friendly and fun. So what if they just raised my rent. I'm grateful still. I live 8 blocks from my sis, brother-in-law and nephew. I can walk to their apartment in the rain listening to my new ipod. I get to watch Griffin change from day to day. My mom is moving here in the next few months. My best girl, Hillz, and I get to hang out whenever we want- like on NYE. My California friends visit often. I have made new friends here and they make me laugh. I don't get lost half as much as I used to. My blog friends continually surprise and delight me. (Who sent me the sandalwood incense? Thanks!) Just yesterday I got to meet Ms. Snarky herself, Snackiepoo. I want her and Shawn to move here because then we can be BFFs. (Pretty please?)

I feel blessed/lucky to have the life I have. And I feel incredibly hopeful about 2007. May you look upon this new year with fresh perspective and energetic hope. There is magic in that. Believe.

That's just the attitude I'm taking with my life. We make our own happiness and our own misery. I chose happiness -- :) Happy New Year!

Glad that life is so freaking awesome for you. Great outlook.

That would've been one kick butt meet-up... Sizzle and Snackie in one place at the same time??? Is it still standing? Or did the cool factor just bring the place to its knees?
