So my last post here was three months ago.  


I kind of fell off the positive blogging wagon.  There has been drama in my life that is finally slowing down (thank God), and I got a really good reminder this morning that I need to come back to this.  Because the entire point was to retrain my brain to be more positive.

I definitely haven't been lately.  

I decided that I'm going to make a few changes in how I approach this.  Part of why I stopped was that I simply forgot to post at the end of the day.  I am not an evening blogger.  Blogging is very much a morning activity for me, and I decided it certainly wouldn't hurt for me to START my day with a dose of positivity and gratitude.

Since gratitude is on my mind this morning, I thought I'd focus on that today and make a quick list of the things I'm grateful for in my life.

  • I am grateful for the good man that I married.  He's not perfect, but he's funny and thoughtful and sweet.
  • I am grateful that Daisy, my almost 12 year old border collie mix, is still with us and walking.  She had a stroke last year and has had an amazing recovery.
  • I am grateful for the SUN.  We've had a LOT of rain lately, and it's been dragging me down.
  • I am grateful for my friends, most especially the ones that bring me back down to earth with their +4 Gratitude Hammer to remind me of all the awesome in my life.
  • I'm grateful that Levi's didn't stop making their 529 jeans.
  • I am grateful that I am in a position to actually BUY a new lawn mower (even though the cost makes me sick to my stomach).
  • I am grateful that God, biology, and the environment blessed me with creativity and the experiences to nurture it.
