The "imperfections" of my life...

I haven't blogged in a few days and there are many reasons for that...
First off, I've experienced a bit of "blogger's block" and have had no inspiration at all.. On top of it, I've been sick with a bad cold, swamped with work stuff and Iggy has been out of town for work, which makes my life very complicated (and lonely)...
So.. considering I pride myself in being a positive person and I had basically nothing good to say for the last few days, I've been away from the blogosphere....
Today I'm back to talk about the "imperfections"of life and how the way we look at things affects the outcome of our efforts...
I've been feeling down lately and thinking about how "imperfect" my life is and how I would change things if I could...
-My husband travels for work... A LOT... I hate to see him go every time and I even resent him from leaving me and for having to say good bye so often... I feel so lonely when he's not around and the girls have a way to really get on my nerves when I don't have "hubby support" at hand...
- I've been at my job for almost 8 years.. sometimes I feel like I'm stuck in a rut... there are supposed to be so many "opportunities" in the company but I just don't see them..sometimes I just want to run away from it all and forget about it....
- My kids drive me nuts some days... they fight, they whine, they make messes, they refuse to eat when I give them food...
- I seem to have a hormonal problem (recently diagnosed), which has caused me to gain weight (a lot)...I can't seem to find the motivation to exercise and that makes me depressed...
- I'm always so exhausted and at times I feel like I want to sleep all day and never wake up.. it's a weird feeling.. sometimes I don't get it...
- I've been sick with a cold that doesn't seem to go away.... no medicine makes me feel better and that makes me so frustrated...

So.. as I sit here and think about the "imperfections" of my life, I have decided to look at each one and turn it around and look for the positive in them..
- I have a wonderful husband, who has a job he loves.. and even though he does travel A LOT, he always comes back with a new outlook.. His trips can't compare to long and dreadful deployments some wives have to put up with.. I feel lonely but I know he's always thinking of me and all he does is for us.. and I love him for that...
- My job is horrible most sometimes, but at least I have a job.. Not only do I have a job, but it is also a job that touches so many people's lives.. I work in a place where I can make a difference, even if it's just by offering a smile that will brighten someone's day.. that's priceless...
- My kids are healthy and lively... they're two smart little girls that can turn a horrible day into a wonderful one.. they're energetic and loving and for that I'm thankful and fortunate...
- My hormonal problem was successfully diagnosed and I'm doing something about it.. I've gained weight, yes, but at least I have the option of exercising.. I have a healthy body and even though I might not have the energy to engage in any physical activity at the moment.. it will always be an option...
- I have the power to transform my exhaustion into positive energy.. AND I can always go on vacation (our Disney cruise is only a few days away..woo hoo!!).. and of course I should go to bed earlier.. ha ha!
- My sickness (this terrible cold) WILL go away because a cold won't last forever (it can't last forever, right?)..and by the time Iggy gets back from his next trip I'll be healthy and ready for our cruise!

Even tough our lives might seem "imperfect" at times.. it's never a bad idea to look at our problems from another perspective.. one that will make us feel better about it and that will teach us that there is a silver lining in everything and we can only see it if we have the right attitude and frame of mind...
I'm one who struggles a lot with "imperfect" times and cranky moments, but I always have faith that things will get better and I will always find the way back to my "happy place" and that I will make PEACE WITH IMPERFECTIONS!

Happy Blogging! ;)
