I decided to cut my hair as a part of a transition process and it turns fantastic!
I'm liking more of the truest version of myself, when I look in the mirror I love myself more and more

Beauty surrounds me no matter what
The beauty and vibrant colors of the flowers, river, trees, and birds where I live remind me how fortunate and blessed I am. I am surrounded by such beauty regardless of my mood. I am grateful.

I got a working violin, and I remember Pachabells Canon in D with relative ease and quickly, it will be a true blessing to get to have this in my life again.

I feel grateful for where I live with the plus and minuses that go with it. The plusses are relatively clean air ,good tree cover and small city with lots of open space around.
I am very lucky to be alive and live where in the world I live.

I am grateful for my lovely grandsons who I do not see very often but are always in my heart.
We always have fun when we are together and show interest in each other. They always surprise me with how they perceive and wonder at things around them.

Grateful to be able to volunteer my time at the community food bank each week.
Working at the Food Bank helps me see how fortunate I am and to realize I am part of a movement much bigger than I. It makes me appreciate all that I have in my life and makes me open to helping instead of judging others.

I say my doctor and two worrisome symptoms ended up having benign explanations.
I was relieved.

I began psychotherapy with a new therapist this morning, and it's ll good. Due to some public subsidy of the center, I am only being charged a $30 co-pay which I can afford.
I felt heard, understood, and cared for.

I have been under intense pressure lately - feeling the tightness in my back and the stiffness of my shoulders that comes from being incredibly stressed. However, each day, I am reminded of my own strength and resilience, and the ineffable faith that helps get me through times like this. I am grateful for my faith in the universe, and for my strong and healthy body.
Knowing my mind, heart and body will carry me through this pressured time is of huge benefit to me. It helps me cope with the moment by moment stresses - knowing that "this too shall pass".

I found out that health condition I had experienced two years ago has a 40% mortality rate. I didn't know this before. I survived. I am still negatively impacted by the experience in some pretty limiting and awful ways, but I AM ALIVE.

I am grateful for another day of life. I went to the gym, had a good workout and listened to interesting podcasts and learned about this website.
There are many opportunities for growth open to me when I am open to life.

Thankful for a new sense of connection with my teenage great nephew Sam. Seems he has been seeking me out for conversation the few times I've seen him recently --
till now we've not been very close and this feels good.

My husband paid more for something in a store so the salesperson would get a commission, rather than buying it online for less.
Made me realize how money isn't as important as kindness

Marveling over vegetables - how interesting and good are the things that grow out of the ground.

Thankful to have the "big announcement" day behind us. Nothing bad happened, so the fear and uncertainty is now a thing of the past.
Knowing life is like this doesn't necessarily make the anticipation easier -- it is only the passing of the event that eventually results in more peace. Thankful for that peace.

Gracia makes my daily life incredibly pleasurable and easy.
Without Gracia, I would not be able to pursue the projects and events that are most meaningful to me. She quite literally enables me to inject each day with an incredible sense of purpose. In this respect, she is expanding my lifespan and increasing my wellbeing, every day!

I went out to lunch with a person who is this intolerant, that intolerant, doesn't like this doesn't like that. Went through at least 6 things on the menu with the server to see if she could eat it.
I'm thankful I'm not a picky eater. Life is so much better when you can enjoy food and not make it an issue for every one around you. This picture is one I took in a food photography class I took.

I give the cleaner at my hairdressing saloon a tip each month since I feel that cleaners at hairdressers, restaurants do not get the appreciation that they deserve
I felt that my gesture was appreciated. I enjoyed the smile on the individual's face.
