The Journey Begins…

Thank you for following my Gratitude Journal. I hope you are reminded of all the things you are grateful for…

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m very grateful to be able to walk in a restaurant, sit at the bar, and have someone hospitable and pleasant bring me things to eat and drink. Such a relief. I’m grateful for a decent haircut – finally. And, I’m grateful for my Reiki healer. When your chakras are aligned, you know it!

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful I still have a progressive mind and generous heart. I see too many people let those qualities slip away as they grow older. I’m grateful I’m finally getting off sugar. It’s everywhere. And, I’m grateful for readers. It’s much more important to be a reader than a writer.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful for a few days focused on the here and now. It’s easy to be distracted, but happiness is everywhere if you take a second to experience it. I’m grateful that the days of others taking credit for my work are over. And I’m grateful that I realize that nothing is ever really about me.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful that I’ve lived long enough to know that every “bad” thing that happens is actually a good thing. I’m grateful I play the long game. And, I’m grateful that while I’ve become less judgmental, I’ve also become less tolerant. You can’t go through life with catcher’s mitts on both hands; sometimes you need to throw shit back.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

There’s a lot to be grateful for today. For most of my life, I took the right to vote for granted. I don’t anymore. And, I’m grateful to those who died for us to have that right, and grateful to those who continue to fight for us to have a voice. I’m grateful I’ve spent more time asking, “Why?” It’s given me clarity of purpose. And, I’m grateful to get back on the diet train. Overindulging isn’t as fun as it used to be.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I awoke this morning very grateful for my small, tidy house and garden. For a good part of my life, I lived paycheck-to-paycheck, without credit, on the edge of homelessness, and dependent on food banks. And, even though I’m successful and self-made now, things could have turned out very differently had I let it. I’m grateful for information on demand. How amazing it is to Google any question you ever had about anything and get a plethora of information about it. And, I’m grateful for my sprinkler system. Even though it’s annoying, it’s a rich-person problem, and I’ll take those over taking the bus any day.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m definitely grateful I got my shots and there’s enough data to say I can ditch my mask. I’m not sure I’ll be doing it completely though. There is something disgusting about a whole bunch of people breathing on your fruit and food. Maybe that should stay. I’m grateful I got paid on Friday. It’s given me the strength to go on. And, I’m grateful that I’ve been able to attend a multitude of professional events in sweats and no bra. That’s real liberation.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

Even though I was a bit sluggish, I pushed through my AM routine, being mindful and very grateful how fortunate I am not to commute anymore. I’m grateful it was a cool, cloudy, overcast day. IDKY, but that kind of weather on a Monday makes being in front of a computer all day more tolerable. You don’t feel like you’re missing anything a sunny day would bring. And, I’m grateful I’m a good student.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m so grateful that we are crushing Covid in California! You can feel the energy and optimism everywhere you go. I’m grateful I own tools. Seems the more tools you own, the less you like to use them, though. And, I’m grateful I will work from home forever. When I think of all the time I spent driving back and forth, the makeup, the clothes, the lunches, the gas, the bras….What would I have been able to accomplish without all that crap?

The end.
