Week 3/Day 20 ~ 21 days to a Positive Attitude (Friday March 21)

Day 20 - Friday

1) Every day write down 3 good things that happened that day for which you are grateful.

A. The car, all 150,000 miles of it, got a clean bill of health today.

B. I have gone up and down the stairs without cane, left foot over right foot, 5 times today.  Killing my quad, or what's left of it, but awesome exercise. 

C. PT goes to 2 times a week, however, Today we got another degree closer to straight and on flex we got another degree more bent!  Yea.  

2) Journal about one positive blessing. One of the three, and explain why that good thing is better than the bad things that happened.

This is a boring entry, but today is a boring type of day.  The one thing that lighted my fire today was that I had positive movement on the two measurable gains I am being asked to pursue during recovery from Total Knee Replacement.  Flex, how far you can bend you knee, needs to be at 115 degrees before you can climb stairs, and ideally your leg should be straight and locked out when you want it to be, but after surgery it starts at maybe -25 degrees.  My Knee was at -20 degrees before surgery due to injury and disease, and had been for over 5 years, so any gain is awesome.  Today I got one degree of gain on both indexes when at Wednesday's meeting with PT I go no gain.  Yea!

3) Meditate and detach from multi-tasking, by focusing on scripture~ read it, research it, think about how it might impact your life.

John 21:25 (CEV) - "
Jesus did many other things. If they were all written in books, I don’t suppose there would be room enough in the whole world for all the books."

John knew what he had written was not accurate history, in the "I covered everything in the order it happened and missed nothing so there," way.  But rather, he covered the history of Jesus' ministry in a way that we got sufficient information to be saved and follow him.  Here he points out with some hyperbole, that there is very much more that Jesus did.  Wow.

4) One random act of kindness a week. You can do more. (Try one a day)

Gave a Friend a $5 Starbucks Card on Facebook.  Someone who needed a boost. Someone who is remembering a loss of a loved one that can not be replaced.

5) Pray. Lay down the hurtful things and gather strength.
