Good News Friday…

Edit allows me to pop in after this is published and add the things I was thinking about after my brain flaked. There’s a lot of things in life that can be edited. Sometimes I need to remember what a gift it is and not fret so much over what I can’t change.

Family gatherings that turn out well.

Knowing the insanity isn’t me.

What’s something good in your week?

  1. I hope this means you had a nice thanksgiving πŸ™‚

    • Yes, I did, thank you. πŸ™‚

  2. Editing is a blessing, as it has often given me a chance to fix what was broken. Or at the very least, add thoughts that have been allowed to percolate on the back burner, long after I hit the Publish button. Even though the Edits might happen after most eyes have seen the words on the page, it still gives me a sense of continuity and clarity to have them available to me, even after the fact. Edits, for me, are a way of tidying up loose ends.

    Here’s what was good in my week:
    * finished a long project, allowing me to feel a sense of accomplishment
    * spent two very productive days volunteering in an industrial kitchen
    * enjoyed the savory benefits of a long day of cooking and chopping
    * put up several ready-to-go meals in the freezer for future use
    * saw the sun come out to dry out our wet and muggy atmosphere
    * opened all the doors and windows to allow fresh breezes in today
    * accepted what already transpired, and vowed to live without regret

    Okay, maybe that last one was a stretch, but I’m working on it. Attempting to improve on my ability to accept what is already history, and move forward without regrets. No matter the mistake, it is already past and cannot be changed, so I’m working on letting go of the constant nagging and badgering, and leaning into the idea of accepting it as a finite point in my life; one that cannot be undone, but rather, an opportunity for learning.

    • Well done! You had some great things happen! As to the last one, it’s important to put into words what we want to accomplish. It’s a step in the right direction, and such steps should be celebrated. πŸ™‚

  3. In class, I was asked for my opinion on an article we had read, it was contradictory to the author and the general sentiment of the class. It felt weird but right. Glad to hear your Thanksgiving was good. πŸ™‚

    • Good news, indeed! πŸ™‚
