Positive Thoughts Thursday

Yes, I realize it's not Thursday, but this is something I want to start this year -- it just took me a little bit to figure out what I wanted to call it.
Sometimes I feel like I use this blog to vent/complain about things going on in my life, and I don't want to continue with all of that negativity. So each week I'm going to compile a list of positive, happy, lucky, fortunate things that are going on in my life, or anywhere in the world. Here's my first list:

  • I am very lucky to have access to amazing health care professionals to help me with my CF and now CFRD, to keep me in tip top shape.
  • I loved having the past two weeks off of work. I was able to sleep in a lot, spend some time with Tim, clean the house, read some books and most of all: relax! 
  • This week I talked to my awesome friend, Catie, about life. I love having such a wonderful, supportive friend. :-)
  • Tim and I started exercising together this week. I want to gain some muscle weight and Tim is working on being healthier. Its been fun doing the work outs together and encouraging each other to be healthy. 


  1. Hey Colleen!! I really really like this idea positive post. My blogs have been negative at times but its life sometimes. Friends are so key in life I am glad you have someone you can talk about life with!! I hope your belly is feeling better. Take care my FRIEND!!

  2. I love positive posts! It's so easy to get bogged down with all of the crappy things that go with cystic fibrosis! Great plan! :)

  3. I believe it's totally healthy to vent every now and then, but sometimes people do get a little too caught up in the negative things. That being said - I would NEVER think of you as one of those people! :) Even still, great post and great idea!
