Chris Guillebeau before, but the title of the book caught my eye. I was looking for a book to help guide me in what I'm trying to do, and this is what I chose.
I want to be a better human being, not just for myself, but for the world. We need all the positivity we can get, and I want to be part of the positive force, not the negative. The real, authentic me is someone who wakes up cheerful, and I believe that good things can happen, and I truly believe things can change for the better. But that has gotten muddled through the years, to the point where I'm ashamed to admit how many days of my life I've woken up dreading the day, being pissed and miserable all day, and spending the whole day just wishing it would end. And you don't get that time back. I've probably spent more of my life wishing the day to be over than appreciating and enjoying the day. And that makes me sad. That's not the life that I want, it isn't me. I don't want to be around negative people anymore, people who are dream killers. You know, the people who can find the negative in anything. I want to be around people who enjoy life, truly enjoy it, people who are inspired, and inspiring, and I want to be inspired and inspiring.
I'm sorry, I'm going on and on. It's just that I so desperately want to accomplish this goal of mine. I feel so determined!
Speaking of food, I am proud to say that my original haul of thirty eight dollars, plus the few things I picked up to last over the weekend lasted me until today! So ten days. I'll just round up and say I spent a total of fifty dollars for ten days for all meals. And I didn't feel bored or deprived. I also feel like I had a well rounded diet with greens, and fruit and such.
So, this morning I'm going to get some groceries, and of course I need cat food, and then I will be stalking all people with dogs.
