I’m Thankful

It’s Thursday. You know what that means!

Today, I’m thankful for:

  • Improved water consumption *taps self on back*
  • Wine Dinner this weekend!
  • Awesome bloggers sharing their stories, inspiring and encouraging others, kind comments, etc.
  • Good books to read. Currently reading Still Alice
  • Nice reminder I just got to review a book and post it here
  • Character Development – It is SO helpful. I spent an hour last night, getting to know the characters of the novel I’ll be writing (and re-writing) over the next few months, and the novel is really taking shape in my head. The plot has thickened, just from that exercise. And I’m not done yet! So exciting!
  • Lots to do. I THRIVE on this. I love being busy, and being able to change it (what I’m doing at any given time) up as needed
  • Running. I am seriously BACK. On Saturday morning, I went for a solo run. Clocked my best mile! WOO! Went out again on Tuesday evening. Did 1.5 miles, and almost ran the whole way. I am making progress, and building up endurance. This is GREAT. I feel SO GOOD about it. It helps that running is a sort of therapy for me.
  • Yoga on Saturday with my mum. It’s been recommended by her doctor. I hate yoga, really. Ok, so I’ve only taken one class. It sucked. Scarred me. But I’m gonna give it another shot, just for my mama.
  • Dad is going to the US in a few days. This means I can get stuff! I want a pair of running capris, tanks, a long sleeve top (that matches my Vibrams, hehehehe), and a hydration belt. I’m also gonna get him to mail a bunch of Christmas cards I wrote up from 2010. LOL. And some tea for friends. 🙂
  • Finding that positive, happy place… In ME.
  • My innate ability to turn things on and shut things off in seconds. You probably don’t understand this, and that’s okay. 🙂

  1. I love to see people celebrating theHappy!

  2. So happy you’ve found your happy place 🙂

    Always sending positive energy your way!

  3. Wine dinner? Is that were you just have wine for dinner? If so, I’m in! 🙂

    I love that, “One way to heal a painful experience is to create”. That is so true and one of the reasons that I began blogging. So glad that you are finding your happy place. We all need and deserve that.

    • Bahahahahaha. Just wine for dinner. How very, very bad. But sooo good! LOL.

      It’s a five course meal with wine at each one. 😀 ALMOST as bad as wine for dinner. Actually, it probably is. Wine for dinner, with a few tasty bites alongside.

      Check out Tim Coffey’s blog. He’s doing a flower series… Beautiful flowers with beautiful quotes. Most of them speak directly into my life.

      Have I told you lately that I love your blog, on your comments on mine?

      • Thank you! I will have to check his blog out. Enjoy your wine dinner, sounds like a lovely time.
