The good news is that I’ve lost more weight. The bad news is that I’m still fat in all the wrong places. My arms are still huge, my lower back still needs work, and oh, don’t even ask about my tummy.
The good news is that after more than a month, it’s safe to say that I love my new job. The bad news is that some people don’t seem to welcome the idea that I’m here and I don’t really know why. More to the point, I don’t really care to know why.
The good news is that I’m generally happier these days. In fact, I can’t recall the last time I was down. The bad news is that despite my over-all feeling of happiness, there are still times when all it takes to make me sad is an unacknowledged text from this person who means so much to me. I know I shouldn’t let my happiness depend on one person but then there are really some people (or in my case, there’s this ONE person) who have a hold on us like that. And sometimes, we just have to live with it.
The good news is that I think I’m in that place again where considering other people sounds like a good idea. The bad news is that I still have doubts whether the person I’m considering is worthy of consideration at all.
The good news is that sometimes, I think he is. The bad news is that most of the time, I think he is not.
The good news is that I’m learning to simply enjoy this— whatever this is— and accept that while it is not perfect, it’s enough to put a smile on my face for now. The bad news is… well, there’s no bad news there, I guess. Or, as my well-meaning friend puts it, there’s no bad news YET at this point. Haha. I tell her, however, that I’m a big girl now. I can cross the bridge when I get there.
The good news is that I have seen so many bridges of this kind in my lifetime. The bad news is that I have never actually crossed one.
The good news is that as far as crossing bridges go, there is always a first time. The bad news is— well, we’ll find that out after the first time. 😉
