It’s a buzz word right now – gratitude. It’s trending on Twitter, it’ s all over Instagram and you can find it on Facebook. What an awesome band wagon to jump on. I am going to share November Gratitude on this page too – but with a small twist. Each time I remember to post I will post a “Somewhat Deep” piece of gratitude and a “Bubbly” piece of gratitude. Because honestly we all have both – right?! How can I put “fir-tree scented candles” next to “world peace”? Well now I can with my handy two-part gratitude series. I’m sure I’m the first one to come up with this idea (insert sarcasm). Feel free to join in! Just post a comment for all to see – or just quietly think about what you’re thankful for – I guarantee serious feel good results. Here we go…
“Somewhat Deep” – I’m thankful for the web of relationships I enjoy. From childhood family friends, to friends that live too far away, to new friends in the past decade to my unbelievable family. When I think about how amazing they all are, how much I’ve learned, how much they’ve all shaped me I get overwhelmed – in a good way. A friend, that is truly family, is a having a cord blood transplant today to fight her second form of cancer in two years. SHE makes me thankful for our relationship. HER journey inspires me on a daily basis to be kinder to all, slow down and enjoy each step. (LOVE AND HUGS TO BECCA!)
“Bubbly” I can’t get enough of Pandora’s “Positive Hip Hop” Station. I know every song and feel the need to sing every one – loudly.
How about you?!
