just for accountability.

I wonder how many days out of the year I blog about needing a change in perspective.  I think it must be high on my list of topics, since here I am again, reminded that I have it good.

So, the nurse isn’t available to see me until tomorrow.  So, I still can’t hear out of my right ear.  I grumbled on my way back to my room quite a bit. so hot outside.  can’t hear. wanna hear. 

A list of thankfulness is in need again.  Because, as Madame Blueberry in Veggie Tales said, a thankful heart is a happy heart. (Actually, I think it was the carrot who said it initially, but by the end, Madame B caught on to the idea)

1. I’m thankful that there is a Health Services office on campus.  I’m thankful that it is right below my dorm.  I’m thankful that I don’t have to go to the hospital down the street for it.

2. I’m thankful that I have snacks in my dorm.  Even if the food here isn’t great (which is an overstatement), I’m fed one way or another and can always make a sandwich in the cafeteria.

3. I’m thankful for music.  So many days out of these past two weeks, Pandora and Spotify have either helped me focus, helped me calm down, or helped me to connect with people.

Maybe this isn’t the most interesting thing to post, but today it’s going to keep me accountable.  Because I’ve told you that I will be thankful for what I have, I will follow through.

Also, I’m thankful that my bed has stayed upright.

I’m thankful that you’re reading this right now.

  1. Ashley, i again enjoyed ur post. But help me understand “Healthy Services”.
    My next class reunion will be 50 and i have not heard that term.
    I am also a little stubborn. (100% German)
    I understand Healthy, but do not associate clinic where we used to go for ear aches, with Healthy.
    But then english and vocabulary were not my best subjects.
    Prayers,
    Hope u r better soon.
