On a Positive Note in These Foolish Things

I want to cover up my most recent entry with a positive one. I desperately need to end today with positive thoughts!

I’m thinking of a road trip for the not-so-distant future. I haven’t decided where yet, but I know I don’t want a solo trip. Enough solo time! Clearly it will have to be someplace within driving distance, and there are many places to go! I’m excited to think about this.

I haven’t forgotten about Operation Upgrade either! Yes, it’s time to move and groove on that. Just thinking that I’m building a plan makes me feel much more free and less confined. Oh, and I left spots on my vision board for better and better images to manifest!

Also! I’ve been sending letters to older lonely folks (see [Charmingly Neurotic]’s entries about this). So far, I’ve sent 22 cards and CN has sent me 15 more names. There’s something so very soothing, almost meditative about hand writing several letters at a time. I’m grateful for this tiny project.

And I ran into my neighbor while I was walking the dog. We are going to meet on the rooftop a little later to have a glass of wine and chat. If we have to have a curfew, we might as well enjoy it.

There. I feel better. Extra special thanks to a private noter who suggested that I think about good things. It worked/helped and I’m grateful for the note.

More good stuff to come,
GS

Sounds like the perfect antidote to your curfew!

There is an ad on the radio at the moment that says we should all think of 10 things we are grateful for everyday. Somedays it's a real struggle but oddly satisfying.

A road trip sounds great! I really enjoyed my road trip to hang out with you in Knoxville! That was probably the last road trip I took.

Onward and upward. A road trip with a pal sounds like a good prescription!

I'm dying for a road trip these days too. Glad you're able to focus on some positives.

Planning a road trip sounds like the perfect antidote to all the stress and I love the writing letters project - what a good idea!

Road trips are the best! And the US is such a good place to do them! :-) xx

I hope you found some pleasure and calm with your rooftop wine. Planning ahead always makes me feel better, too, though sometimes I sneaky spiral and it’s hard to climb back to a place where I can make concrete actions. I love that you are always chasing that positive energy.
