The glass is half full

Bad News:  I didn't get the job.  It's whatever.  The job didn't pay much and there was not a lot of growth.
It didn't happen for a reason and I'm ok with it.

Good News:  Today another company called to set up an interview for Wednesday.  I applied in JANUARY! 

Good News:  We raised quite a bit of money with my baked goods. 

Bad News:  I think I gained about 20 pounds by licking the bowls. 

The Best News:  I started preparing for the 5k today and walked 3.1 miles in an hour and 15 minutes.  Ok, it might seem really slow but I'm still out there doing it.  Then tonight the kids were begging to go for a walk with the dog.  Normally I would have laughed in their faces.  Instead I walked another mile as the kids ran circles around me. 

That should get those cookies off my ass!  Maybe?

Bummer about the job, but I think like you ... everything happens for a reason. Something better will be around the corner for you. Way to raise funds, but no more licking the bowl (lol).

Good post and great positive attitude. A friend of mine has been looking for a job for a while now and has been hit with disappointment after disappointment. She finally interviewed and landed the job of her dreams. I do firmly believe that good things come to those who wait.

I admit- I ate one of my cupcakes but no icing LOL! Today I made a new goal of exercising to a DVD Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. We can do it.
