A long december

"It's been a long December and there's reason to believe maybe this year will be better than the last"
-Counting Crows
Alright, so there's reason to believe that maybe this year will be better than the last. There's reason to believe that maybe this year will be better than the last. There's reason to believe that maybe this year will be better than the last. Think if I say it enough, I'll believe it? Well my friend DM has promised to help me be more positive in the new year. I'm not really one for resolutions. But, I definitely think it would behoove me to have a better attitude. Think happy thoughts. Think happy thoughts. Isn't that how Peter Pan and his little Tinkerbell flew to neverneverland? Well, that and pixie dust. Anyone got any pixie dust??
I just feel better when I have a better attitude. I know that. It's just tough to have a great attitude sometimes when I'm in the muck and the mud of ASD. Work in progress.
Little Bird has pooped twice a day for the past 12 days. She's been pretty "on" for that time period. Chatty, fun, funny. I think it's the flagyl. I'm just hoping this trend continues. I'm wondering of a round of diflucan is next. We'll see. Our next visit to the voodoo doctor is in a week.
As always, it's been nice to see some of my friends and eat at my favorite spots here in LA. We will make our way "home" to the snow tomorrow!

You asked me once how I stay so positive. I think I answered similarly back then, but this reminded me of it. I choose to stay positive. If I don't, it won't be good for anyone involved. I'm a bit of a pendulum swinger... light to dark... dark to light... and back again. If I don't make sure those light times aren't super light, I'm afraid of how dark the dark times could be. Because isn't that life? Highs and lows? Ebbs and flows? Successes and failures. It's the hard times that remind us just how sweet the good times are. I'm sure I could come up with another cliche, but I will say that it does my heart good to read that you're trying to "think happy thoughts". Happy travels. XO
