I think I have looked at these threads enough to see that people take for granted the great things we do have so I'm going to start and list the good things in my life.

I have great friends that are there for me, even in the hospital they were still there.

I have great family, that are kind and good people with good hearts. They are loving.

I have a great job that is very lienent with my work schedule when I need it to be.

I have a good car, I love it.

I have a fat cat, that is always at the door waiting for me.

I have more self esteem and care for myself now than I ever have.

I have gotten all the negative people in my life OUT of my life, and I can sigh.

I have a beautiful, courageous, supportive family who loves me more than I can even know.

I have a full fridge and a warm place to sleep. I have a job. I have enough money to support myself.

I have a quiet strength inside myself that cannot be broken.

I have my amazing family.

I have a few friends, and the ones I do have are good ones.

I have my education and a degree waiting around the corner.

I have my black lab dog, whom I don't get to see much, since she lives with my parents, but I love her!

I have a fully functioning body- I can walk, stand, run, jump, skip, anything.

I have music. I don't know what I would do without music.

I have my brain to read and learn and understand and think.

Hi all,
Well I might as well chime in.

I have an 18 month old neice that thinks I can do no wrong, and that means more to me than anything. As long as I make the world a better place for her to grow up in I'll be happy.

I have a great boss! ME- I get to work at home, no boss, no employees, set my own schedule. Have been very sucessful breaking out on my own and it affords me freedom and flexbility- I just love that part. Can work in my pj's if i want to- and I do!

My parents are still living and close by- even though we are not that close they are there when I need them. And that counts for a lot.

I have my very own roof over my head - not a big or fancy one- but its all mine.

I have great work associations and contractors that are willing to mentor me- a pool contractor has been teaching me pool and spa design and it is absolutely awesome.

I live in a great part of the USA- love my country- love my state.

I have this website which I think has changed my life- or least helps me to keep trying.

And as of today have a new face!! had my cosmetic surgery this a.m.- what a treat for myself!!!Right now i look like I have been punched in both eyes- but just wait til the bruises go away!

No man in my life- but that can be a good thing- as we read on these threads every day.

All in all- can't complain about anything! SD

Aces, thanks for this idea!

I have a beautiful daughter and three lovely grandchildren, whom I love more than life.

I have wonderful, long term friends who love me, accept me, stand by me and whom I appreciate and can give back to.

I have made new great friends in a foreign place, which they have helped me feel 'at home' here.

I have this site full of wonderful, diverse friends here at AAC.

Schotz, my cat, is my guardian companion waiting at the door with a meow and 'where have you been?'

I have a roof over my head, which I am hopeful I will be mine some day soon. The foreclosure will be paid by me in the next day or two. Thank you God!

I have my Almighty who watches over me, and Heaven only knows, do I need that!

I have the appreciation for the lovely nature God has given us and what man tries to reshape.

I have intellignence that I realize which for years I thought was only 'stupid' that I have learned to recognize and rarely clled myself stupid anymore.

I have creativity that I can explore and share to give to others in so many ways.

I have a notebook, that I love. (Had to add something materialistic).

I am learning not only to love myself, but to care about who I am and to take care like I should (mostly).

There is so much more goodness than bad, that I thank you Aces for bringing this to our attention!

Wonderful thread Aces,

Here is mine:

I have myself and still my sanity

I have 2 beautiful daughters healthy and loving and gifted

I have 3 beautiful grandchildren, all the same as above

I have an education which I worked hard for (but it paid off)

I have shelter, food and love from family and friends

I believe in a higher power

I have the gift of being alive in this very uncertain world and can still count my blessings. And to me, that is what I really have..The air I breathe and that I wake up every single day! (Oh! My B-day is Saturday..Let me not think about it!)

I hope you are well Aces,

Great idea Aces!!!

I got divorced which was the best thing to happen to me.

I have an excellent therapist who has guided me through things, and even treated me with EMDR to help heal me. In the year that I have seen her, she has seen me grow and change.

I have my own house, and everything in it is mine (divorce is finalized and settled, and the ex took all of his stuff)

I have my parents who have helped me through this rough time. Plus I have my relatives which I have recently gotten closer with, plus I have a few close friends

I have a good job that I enjoy, plus a boss that allows me to be flexible with my schedule.

I am creative and talented and use my abilities to do scrapbooking, as well as restore / repair furniture and lamps. I can even create and edit videos.

I have a talent and a bit of luck for selling things on the worlds largest online auction site (selling my stuff and some other peoples stuff)

I have discovered my sexuality as something to be embraced and appreciated and is a part of me, not something to be ashamed of.

I have my friends on this site in the virtual world.

I do not have any debts except my house payment. (car is paid for, paid off credit card)

I started saving money for an emergency/rainy day fund.

I rescued a cat that was abandoned by a renter that moved out across the street. She lives outside, but is always waiting for me to come home. She comes inside for a little snuggle, then wants her food and goes back outside. I made her a little house on front porch to keep her warm too.

I have a warm bed (with my electric blanket, better than any man!) and a wonderful nighttime routine where I read and listen to some wonderful classical music to put me into sleep mode.

I am finally happy and content with who I am!

Love to all, Ladyace

Aces,

I've never left!!! I am always here reading every day, but I can only post at home. (we have a firewall at work that doesn't permit me to login to this site to post).

I have followed your progress getting over Mr Jack, and can see a big improvement in you over the past few weeks. You should feel very proud of yourself. I know you had a rough weekend, but that's ok. You got the treatment you needed at the hospital and are ok now.

I'm glad you stuck around. (I also read how you were going to leave the site.)There is such magic here in how we are able to guide and learn from each other just through what we type!

Love and hugs to you, Ladyace

Thank you Ladyace, it's comforting to you know that you were in a sense watching over me, I do feel a lot better with being able to see things somewhat more clearly concerning Mr. jack. It still hurts at times, I still miss him at times, but I refrain from past behavior, I can only hope I sustain this long enough for good this time.

So what is new with you?

And yes there is magic here, I think I was going to leave but then I realized that there are a lot of people I actually really care about and coming here does help me in some sense to get through things, even if I am just getting them out of my head.

I am glad I stayed too, for the people on this site, even some that I have not gotten along with, have helped me to realize things about myself.

Aces,
I am enjoying just being where I am at right now, alone. My divorce was final in December, and while I could start dating again, I am just going to enjoy being alone right now, becoming more comfortable with myself. I am still checking in with my therapist once a month. She highly reccomended Eharmony.com and has had clients that had great success with it. I know there was a discussion on here that it wasn't really good, but I will probably give it a try when I am ready (I will trust my therapist's judgement)

I broke off my affair with the married man. The 3 of us (including his wife) are all friends and I don't want to lose them as friends, but I couldn't stand sneaking around with her husband anymore. I think as I got to know her more and became closer with her, that's what really made me realize I couldn't keep having sex with him. In fact, it would be more suspicious if I stopped being friends with them. While the sex was really good, (only guy I was ever with was my ex), I now understand more what it is supposed to be like, and NOT what I had with my ex. Like I told my therapist, I needed to discover this for myself, and for some reason I needed to do this. But I have learned from it, and am moving on. While I am not proud of what I did, nevertheless, it is done. Yes, we still have feelings for each other, and he will always hold a special place in my heart and I have some awfully good memories (first guy to give me an O, my ex never did, he told me I was broken!!!), it is done.

Besides, when I do start dating again, I'm sure I'll be on here asking all kinds of questions - I'm out of practice. I haven't dated in over 10 years, since college!

Love, Ladyace

LadyAce- you will date again when you feel okay with it, and if you do I say go for it. As far as E-harmony goes, like silence, I was told I was undateable, must be my great outlook on life that got me that. Oh well, Im so glad you broke things off and kept your friendships, those are most important in life because friends are something that will always be a constant no matter what. Well at least good friends. Other than that, I am so glad to hear that you are doing well. I have truly missed your posting, and am glad you are now.

Sunny- hugs to you too
