1. My family is number one. That sweet little niece of mine never fails to cheer me up. As well as another little one on the way shortly in the form of a nephew.
2. My closest friends who have been here for me.
3. My health, although failing at the moment I am thankful for the motivation I have found to put more effort into it.
4. My driven perseverance to succeed.
So yes, it's hard to look at the bright side when all you feel is dark on the inside. I'm trying to be better.
First things first though, I have a half-marathon coming up in just under 2 weeks. This brings a lot of unnecessary stress on me. Albeit self-induced I did plan this for a reason. It was intended to keep me focused on something, anything, in an attempt to get through a difficult time. It has worked as planned but at the cost of a bit of my health. I am a very driven person and try not to let anything get in my way of a goal. Unfortunately I'm not sure if it was a good choice to make. I will find out, in less than 2 weeks. Eek! After that... well... I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. I will hopefully be on a better path that will lead me to better health.
