Today, just recognizing that I am alive.
So many opportunities to take every breath and be thankful. Being able to come and go, and say “I love you”, eat what I cooked, and say hello to my friends.

I went on a short road trip with my husband, which I always enjoy because it brings us closer together, reconnects us.
It takes me our of my routine, changes my perspective. It puts me & my husband in a place where we're together without the usual distractions, giving us the opportunity to talk about things more deeply.

Yesterday was my little niece birthday and all my family gathered at my parents’ home. My brother and sisters, their couples and my other niece. Everything was very nice, the food, the present. More important, we were all together again
It was just a nice moment, and I appeciated it

I sat writing my morning pages in front of the fireplace, a purring cat on my lap, a cup of tea at hand, listening to the rain.
It reminded me that simple things really do bring happiness.

My sister has helped me to differentiate toxic people around me
I can quickly distinguish a toxic person because my sister has helped me to accept myself as I am. So now, when I disagree with someone or something (like a bad attitude), I can openly say something about it and not just follow the crowd...which is what I was doing before.

I feel grateful that I have enough to eat.
My basic needs are met and I don't have to worry from day to day about how to meet them. This is very fortunate.

I walked outside to get into my car to go to work and saw the most beautiful sunrise I've seen in forever...oranges and pinks and yellows...
I was a wonderful welcome to my day and I was thankful for the opportunity to see it!

My cousin Molly helped me with new tips for my bizmates preparation. She is really good at what she does and I learned a lot from her. We also got to test our Skypes together to see what we could do with it. It was extremely rewarding.
I learned a lot in preparation for my demo and I have more confidence with handling the technology. The photo I am posting is a way of saying that things are always done better when you are doing it with someone else who has your back.

Mimis my cat. She was really cute and cuddly this morning. So much so that I was a few minutes late to work. She is so aloof but her little surprise cuddle sessions are really special and I hope the warms up as more time comes.

My coworker recommended me for the new position.
I moved to a better job, less stress and better paid. Also, I feel more identified with the culture

I took my aging dog to the vet with a host of problems. It was my 1st time to this vet. Dr. Olsen was helpful, thoughtful and provided simple advice in a complex situation.
My dog may have cancer and her advice helped me get some perspective. It made a really tough situation easier to understand and process!

I am playing a lot of Final Fantasy 14, especially after the newest expansion.
I am having a lot of fun and hanging out with friends (albeit, digitally, which is fine). I was even able to get a house in the game as well and have been enjoying decorating and planning for it. I am weird, I know. It helps calm down the stress from work!

A client said, "I trust you completely. You make the decision on how we should proceed."
I feel proud of the effort I've put into this project and our professional relationship and to have my experience recognized - feels great!

I feel grateful that the hurricane that hit Dublin, Ireland yesterday didn't hurt me or my loved ones or damage our property.
Many people have not been so lucky in recent hurricanes and other natural disasters.

I spent the afternoon gardening (trimming and cleaning up beds) in the warm sunshine with my dog and my husband.
I felt so fortunate to have the opportunity to work outside on a beautiful day surrounded by nature, with people I love, and accomplishing a big task.

Paula, my pilates teacher.
She has helped me feel better. My back is stronger, I feel better about my body. She is kind.

I got some information I've been waiting for to make a fairly big decision! I'm excited at the opportunity it brings.
It helps me feel like I'm finally getting somewhere.

Ever since we've been listing grateful things, my partner has become a lot more positive in his ways and outlook.
I no longer feel down when he feels down because he is rarely down. I don't want to thank him yet because I want to wait until it becomes a habit. I am enclosing a photo of our shoes.

My sister for calling me in the middle of the day to have a stoner conversation with me. She rambled and we had a good heart to heart about family and life.
My sister suffers from depression. She has finally started taking her meds and is doing much better. It makes me happy that her mental health is great right now.
