... i were nicer. i've been blaming hormones for my short temper for the past year. it's time to admit that hormones are but 75% of it -- the rest can be blamed to my temperament. still, that shouldn't be a bar to me attempting to be less of the person i am and more of the person i want to become.
... i had more money in the bank for security. now, this one's easy: lay off SM, rosa!!!
... life were less complicated. except thinking that alone makes it all the more complicated, IMHO.
there are so many things in life that i wish were true, except that they aren't. for now, though, i choose to be thankful for the things that ARE true.
i am thankful for all the opportunities for travel this year. i may be broke, but i gained a multitude of experience that cannot be bought with money.
i am thankful that i have a job that i *somewhat* love. it's a love-hate relationship, but at the end of the day, just one text message from a client, or a decision ruled in my client's favor, or even an a-ha moment is still enough to put a smile on my face.
i am thankful for family and friends, both of which i have -- maybe not in abundance, but they more than make it up for in quality.
life is STILL good.
