three good things

Toronto, 2017.11.22

As part of my ongoing attempts to get my migraines under control, I'm trying to recognize more good things as they happen. As a book borroed from my mum points out, recognizing and internalizing good things can actually change your brain. At home, we've been trying to capture our "three good things" around the dinner table at night. It's not always easy, but it feels good even if there's no other long term health benefit.

Three good things that happened today:

  1. I solved a substantial puzzle at work.
  2. We've made an important milestone on a committee project for a non-profit.
  3. I've nearly got the tax return done for my numbered business. So close.

yay for good things. Your mom is a hypocrite, focusing too much on the negative. But then November has always been hard. Going to write down at least one good thing/day, too. Congrats on your good things; sounds like a lot for one day. (also important to forget about politics coz man, that's a bummer)

We live in strange days, no one's to be blamed for focusing on politics or the negative at times like this.

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

Try not to become a man of success but rather to become a man of value. He is considered successful in our day who gets more out of life than he puts in. But a man of value will give more than he receives.
