This year I am doing a 12 Months of Grateful Theme – Posts will be on the last day of the month, one thing I am grateful for. We tend to hear so much negative in the news on any given day, it can be hard to focus on the good.
Coming out of a funk –
This month I’ve been kind of down. (Yes, I know! But I promise, it gets better!) I moved to my new town March of last year. Haven’t met many people yet in my new hometown. I met a parent of one of my daughter’s friends, but never made plans to hang out. Mainly because I didn’t want to go out. I will get into those funks and sometimes it will last months.
These past two weeks, I hung out with friends at least one night each of those weeks. Back story, my new hometown is about 50 minutes from my job. It’s about 35 – 40 minutes from any restaurants that I normally hang out with my friends at. So, with me leaving work at 4, I don’t want to go home and then go back out. Three hours in the car? So, I make my friends meet me for an early dinner. Although, I think I’m going to have them start coming up once in awhile to hang with me! I may live in a small town, but it’s cute and has a nice wine cellar and a couple good restaurants!
With me going out the past couple of weeks, it seems to have snapped me out of my funk! This past weekend, with no mumbles and grumbles to myself, I went out and got my errands done. I got off the couch and got my apartment straightened up and it didn’t feel like it was going to kill me lol. Yes, I know it was only errands and straightening up, but my main group of friends were on vacation in Vegas. Yeah, I need to earn more money lol.
What am I Grateful for?
So, I am grateful for great friends who are there to come and hang out when the mood strikes. And to new friends I hope to start making here so I don’t feel isolated when my daughter is with her father. I’ve signed up for a local meet-up group and hope to start getting out and meeting people who are interested in the same things as I am. This will be a two for one grateful post. I’m grateful for technology that is in place to help people who are in the same boat as I am and want to get out and meet new people :).
