People Can Change

When I woke up this morning I had a huge smile on my face. I rolled over, sunk deeper into my pillows and drew the blanket up to my chin. I was thankful for the extra few hours of restful sleep.

Then I remembered what day it was. No, not that it was the weekend. It's storm warning day. Spring snow in Denver can be a dangerous, heavy and wet experience. I'm delighted at the idea that I am locked in my apartment with no thoughts of leaving until Monday. I also hope that anyone who needs to step outside today does so with caution.

I looked out the window and my usual view of the mountains was fogged over, hiding behind the haze of the thick snowfall coming down steadily. 

My agenda today is small but it gives me joy. I'll spend it reading, cooking, baking, writing, watching TV, listening to the boys make up silly games...relaxing! 

My mental health is rather balanced and has been for the past several days. I had some labs drawn and my doctor called me to review and tweak some of my medication. 

I have to say that I'm doing rather well. I'm trying to find the good in my surroundings and each time I feel my mind thinking a negative thought I stop it in its tracks and start over.

It finally feels as if the universe is aligned and the changes I am making are falling into place. 

It's unbelievable to me that the things I am doing to make a better life for myself and those surrounding me are things I would have thought were too new-agey or out in left field just last year. I wasn't ready to accept it then but after a single conversation a week ago where I sat still and listened with an efficient ear, I saw the world in a new light. 

I'm excited for what's to come!
