Creepy Doll

I just really don't know what to say to this. It is surreal to a point. For some reason, the whole thing reminds me of Jack Black and Tenacious D. That is Neal Gaiman getting on stage.

What are you Thankfull for?

Often during November,  we think about the things we are thankful for in our lives.  I believe this is a good habit to have on a daily basis,  no matter the season.  I have been in a negative head space for a while now and have forgotten about looking for the positive side of life.  I used to do this, but over the years, it fell by the wayside.

Here is is a cool exercise to  help remind us of the things we are thankful for in our lives. 

Get a slip of paper every day and date it.  For thirty days write down at least one thing you are thankful for in your life and one good thing that happened to you that day.  It can even be as simple as, I have my hearing and can enjoy music.  It doesn't have to be earth shattering.  Put your slips in a basket, pouch, or even a zip lock. 

After the thirty days go back and read all the slips of paper.  It will make you smile and feel better. 

There is a LJ community http://community. livejournal. com/affirmdaily/ that does this.

If you every day you write at least one good positive thing that happened to you that day, it will help train you to see good and positive things in life around you, helping you change the way you think to more positive aspect. 
I encourage everyone to give it a try.  You will be amazed at how much better you will feel.  It also helps when there are times in our lives were we do not feel so happy or positive.  You can also go back to your bag at a particularly bad time and read about past positives things.
So, what are you thank ful for in your life and what is something good that happened to you?
