A Month of Gratitude, 22, 23, 24 and 25

#22, 23, 24 and 25:  My life 

You caught me.  I missed some days.  I hope my U.S. friends had a wonderful and relaxing holiday weekend.  I spent mine going non-stop and now finally have time to sit, chill out and reflect on what I’m truly thankful for.   The simple answer: everything.

There are baskets of laundry sitting on the floor next to me, begging to be folded, as I’m curled up in the corner of my couch with my laptop.  It’s stressing me out that they are there and not being taken care of, but they can wait.

A song I’ve been quite literally obsessed with over the past week pours out of the speakers of my surround sound as I look for inspiration for this post while the music dances around me.

This weekend I ate, ran, walked, biked, shopped and shopped some more.  I spent time with my family.  I hung out with friends.  I watched football.  I did laundry.  I worked a little.  I helped someone move. I held my nephew.  I got into an epic game of keep-away with my dog.

I feel extremely humbled and thankful, which I suppose is the point of this holiday.  So often people focus on what they don’t have and they let it get them down.  I know I have.  But when you take a look at what’s right here, right now… it’s pretty amazing.

Ok, ok.  So maybe this post isn’t very “inspired” but it’s truth.

More soon.
