I say “gifted” because the past while I have been sad and upset about the loss of my job, but I would like to stop being quite so negative because it’s bumming me out and everyone around me. So, I am focusing on what I gained instead of what I lost.
Oftentimes in life, we have to do things we are not too excited about. There is much to read about filling your life with joy and not letting anyone steal that joy. How is that accomplished when you have to do certain things?
In Lakeland, Florida, where my mom spends her winters, is a Goodwill Outlet store she and her friends call the Dumpster.
I’ve been there a couple of times with her, more for the entertainment value than anything, although I did score a nice long-sleeved shirt for my husband and a grey wool skirt and a lavender pashmina for me the last time I went.
