Are you a glass is half empty or a glass is half full person? For me, I have no doubt, whatsoever, that no matter how bad things get, the sun will rise every morning. I use that as something to look forward to.

I'm having a good day so far. I found an old friend's email. I'm pretty sure she still uses it so I sent her a few sentences on how things are going in my life. She happens to also be a manager at the place I just put a job application in at. For you pessimists out there, No! I did not send her an email just because I want to get the job. She is first and foremost my friend. I miss her and I can't wait to hear back from her.

Back in 2009 I had a stroke which left me with some mobility issues. Here it is, 4 years later, and I am ready to get off of disability and earn my own way of living. The job I've applied for is a huge company. My friend is a manager there but I will not be a part of her team.

Sorry, I can't curb my excitement and I don't want to either. 2009 was a bad year for me... I had a stroke, I had to drop out of college, I lost my house and had to move my family into a 30 ft travel trailer, I filed for bankruptcy. I didn't let that get me down. I had a stroke but I didn't lose my intelligence, I dropped out of college but I was doing algebra less than a week after the stroke and still studied, I lost my house but my family and I were still together with a roof over our heads, food to eat, and warm beds to sleep in...

Life is a challenge and the fact that I make it through another day and see that sun shining the next morning proves that I am stronger than any obstacles that are put in my way.

    Thank you for reminding me it is my attitude that decides if I am going to have a good day or make myself miserable. Bad things happen to good people but the people I respect are the ones who have the faith that they will not only survive but triumph. I will look forward to more of your blogs. emoticon

    Great to hear how you've overcome so many obstacles in life. Sometimes we have to hit out all-time lows before we're ready to hit the all-time highs =] I know what you mean when you say a bad year - mine was more like a year and a half before my life started seeing some sort of sunlight in the distance.

    Half full or half empty?? Usually half full but some days I get up on the wrong side of the bed and then it's somehow half empty lol.
