Another Late Sanguine Saturday

Hello friends! Well, this week's Sanguine Saturday post hasn't been delayed due to forgetfulness or stubbornness or anything like that; we have an internet cap that I managed to hit 6 days before the end of the month. Unfortunately I couldn't get my internet to work well enough to check up all of your examples of Sanguine Saturday so I could write this post!

No worries, though, the first of the month means a reset to proper speeds and decent surfing. And this month I'll try not to go over quota until the last day or so. ;)

Success Stories:
I've continued to handle what responsibilities I have to handle.
I went to my hospital appointment.
I found ways to occupy my time that didn't involve the internet.
I chose to try and look in a more healthy way at some difficult comments and criticisms I received.
I've been trying to not put myself down as "stupid".
I went to a concert all by myself for the first time ever (and only my third ever concert). I put my foot down against my mother's wishes about it and I didn't make myself feel guilty about it all. And I mostly had a great time.

Gratitudes/Happy Things:
Thinking about visiting the UK.
Believing I looked good at my concert.
Seeing The Whitlams in concert again.
Getting my cheque!

Challenge and cheer-leading statements:
Just because someone says something doesn't make it fact. Even if six people say it, it still doesn't make it fact.
It's okay to sometimes think I look good.
Not everything is my fault and I am not responsible for how someone else thinks or feels.
I don't have to be perfect to have value.
Just because things aren't the way I might want them to be doesn't mean that the way they are is no good at all.

Shoot me the link if you post up any version of Sanguine Saturday (any day, any format, as long as it's positive-focused!) and don't forget to check out this week's list of Sanguine Saturday versions:
Jennifer of Magnificasti Mirabilia: created
Sairs of This Lunatic Express: To Remind Myself
Morningmoon of I am *THAT* crazy: Tuesday's Child

Take care of yourselves until next time, and may we all find our own small fences along the way.


  1. I like your lists. In fact I love your lists so much that I have stolen them to use them once a week myself but I couldn't do it the same day as I'd forget! I'm glad you had a good time at the concert.

  2. Thanks lovely. :) I'm glad you're doing lists every week, it makes me smile to see them!
