Thankful, Grateful, Good



On the days I work (not as often as I need to, unfortunately) I often have intense moments of fatigue or job-hatred. Last month I started combating this by concentrating on thoughts of the things I'm grateful for or appreciate in my life.

A brief list of those things:

A walk on a beach in South Carolina at dawn.

HUBS. Especially when he does silly, funny, nerdy, nice things.

A long, hot bath filled with bubbles where I read lots of magazines and shrivel up nicely.

Healthy cats. Inside and outside the house.

A good meal, home-cooked or not.

Dessert.

Naps.

Magic hour (am and pm).

Doing what I need to do when I need to do it.

Surprise money.

Laughing.

My own creativity.

Inspiration.

Good new things.

Meditation.

Pink, purple, sequins and glitter!

What's good in your life right now?

Funny, I just wrote about things I hate on my blog....never really thinking of those small things that I should be grateful for. Like reading your blog and snap out of my negativity :)

Lina and SMS: I'm sure you guys can find lots of things you enjoy about life once you sit down to think about it.

I just read an article in an old issue of O Magazine that said negative stuff actually imprints on the brain easier than good stuff. Which is why crappy things always stick out in our memories so much. So, we are not alone in needing to quiet ourselves and really concentrate on the good.

Thanks, friends!
