100 Things.(Days 92-100)

Wednesday May 18th(Day 92): My brother. I chose this one for today, not because I’m seeing my brother today but because its his birthday. I’m someone who is incredibly blessed with an amazing sibling. Growing up I can’t remember us fighting at all. The only time we disagreed was when one of us was in a really bad mood and we were grumpy. Other than that we never, ever fought. I realize how rare this is and I’m so lucky to have someone there that I can call if something’s wrong and who genuinely is happy to be around me. It’s shitty since he lives in Moncton right now but I know he’ll always be there no matter what the distance is and vice versa.

Thursday May 19th(Day 93): Having support. I had a really tough night tonight. I’ve been struggling with something for  a few weeks now and tonight I wound up in the hospital. It’s scary and unpredictable and I hate but it would be a million times worse if I didn’t have the support that I had. My mom was with me every step of the way. Jason drove over to spend most of the night with me there. I know he was planning to stay the entire night but we told him to leave since he had an exam the next morning. I can’t imagine doing this alone. It makes everything so much easier knowing that I have people to count on if I’m having a rough patch.

Friday May 20th(Day 94): Family doctors. I guess this goes hand in hand with my other post. All my life we’ve had the same family doctor. We’ve been so lucky that we didn’t have to wait in hospitals or clinics for hours on end. Our doctor retired this past April and we were sure, with the doctor shortage, that we wouldn’t have another one. As fate would have it we found one just a few weeks later and she’s even better than the last. It’s a good feeling knowing that there’s someone there if things aren’t going right..rather than waiting days in a waiting room.

Saturday May 21st(Day 95): Cosmopolitan magazine. Addicted. Really that’s all I can say about this. I used to love reading magazines but since we got rid of our cottage I don’t find myself lying around reading them anymore. My only addiction remains with Cosmo magazine. I’ve even decided to subscribe to it since I find myself buying it every single month anyways.

Sunday May 22nd(Day 96): Packing. I guess it’s the OCD in me but I LOVE packing. I love choosing what’s coming with me, envisioning what I’m going to need and looking all over the place to make sure that I didn’t forget anything. I don’t like the actual ACT of packing..that never seems to go over well but I like planning. Is that sad?

Monday May 23rd(Day 97): Flying. This one might surprise people since I hate flying. I’m not afraid, don’t get me wrong, I’m just not a fan of the actual feeling of being in a little container up in the air with absolutely no control. Not to mention the landings are hell on my ears. But aside from that I love actually travelling. I love having an excuse to sit down for 4-5-6 hours and reading and NO ONE can tell me that I should be doing something else.

Tuesday May 24th(Day 98): The beach. Well this is a no brainer for most people I assume. Today was our first real day in Cuba and we immediately ran to see the beach. Is there anything more incredible then the sound of waves hitting the shore and sand between your toes? I could spend years lying on a chair with my feet in the ocean just relaxing. I was also practically raised in the water, having owned a cottage for 13 years, so I LOVE being in the water. I love running in and faceplanting. I love lying on my back with all of the world blocked out. I also love that feeling of having sand stuck on you…EVERYWHERE.

Wednesday May 25th(Day 99): Lounging in a pool. This one ranks just below lying in the ocean for me. The humidity in Cuba was slightly overwhelming so Jason and I decided that we would grab a floaty in the pool and spend the day lounging about. There is no better feeling than floating in the sunlight surrounded by water. Not to mention all the cute little gecko friends we made there.

Thursday May 26th(Day 100): The people in my life. This has nothing to do with this particular day seeing as how it’s being written while I’m in Cuba. I had to end this with this particular thing though because without it I wouldn’t be where I am or who I am today. I’m so truly blessed to be surrounded by the most incredible people. My immediate family who stands by me through everything, a boyfriend that I want to spend the rest of my life with and the best friends that a girl could ever ask for. If that doesn’t make a girl happy then I don’t know what does.

There are so many things that make me happiest that I didn’t mention in these last 100 posts. Mainly because I wanted to try and find one thing on THAT particular day that made me smile. If I had just made a random list then it would’ve probably been pretty different but I had a lot of fun with this and now I can check it off my list:)
