Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful the heat in my house works very well. There’s nothing better than flipping it on, and then feeling that warm blast of air enveloping you like a invisible baby blanket. So soothing. I’m grateful takeout and delivery are pretty much everywhere – one good thing to come from Covid. And, I’m grateful for a cold, cloudy day. I wanted to spend the day reading.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful for my manager…who isn’t really my “boss,” but that’s a different story. I’ve had a shit load of crappy and mediocre managers, engagement managers are even worse, so my gratitude here is noteworthy. I’m grateful I’m employable. Good manager notwithstanding, I work in a volatile business in a uncertain world. And, I’m grateful for Yelp. A great invention.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I made some big decisions yesterday, and I’m grateful for the sense of peace I feel about them. Not so much because I’m sure that those decisions are right, but because even if they are wrong, I know I’ll deal with whatever results, and that I’ll always be okay. I suppose I should be the most grateful for my claircognizance. And, I’m grateful for sneakers.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

My mammogram came back normal. Always grateful for that. I’m grateful I was able to spend time with a friend who I haven’t seen in 30 years. Much Champagne and a few tears. A wonderful day. And, I’m grateful I was out at daybreak to catch the mountains at sunrise – an Ansel Adams moment. Getting up early has a lot of rewards.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful for Barbara Walters. The first night she started with Harry Reasoner, I recall my father saying that “No one is going to listen to news from a woman,” and even though I was still a kid, it was the moment that I realized that my life was going to be different because of my gender. I’m grateful for my warm house, and beautiful neighborhood, and for the work of women like RBG – I wouldn’t be in this house without her. And, I’m grateful I sucked it up yesterday and got all my errands and chores done. I’m ready for the new year/

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful to live in California. People bitch about it until they watch the rest of the country drown in snow. I’ll gladly pay my taxes to live here. I’m grateful for my Reiki healer. I think if more people used healers, we’d have fewer problems in the world. And, I’m grateful NYE falls on a weekend.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

This has been a very long week I’m grateful that I’m finally at a place in my career where I can confidently say no. No, I’m not going to do it for you. No, I’m not going to cover for you. No, I’m not going to work weekends for you. No is a sign of self respect and a healthy ego. I’m grateful for it…And, I’m grateful for carbs.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

Every living creature is grateful for the rain and the end of triple digit temps. I can feel the relief in the trees and plants and me. I’m grateful we are approaching solstice. With so many planets in retrograde, it seems the energy of reappraisal is very strong. And, I’m grateful for bartenders. The second oldest profession.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful for the burger I had for lunch. Not the usual faire, but definitely worth the 800 calories. I’m grateful I am one of the best stretchers in yoga class. Namaste. And, even though it happens, I’m grateful I wasn’t blowing farts during yoga like the woman behind me. That’ll teach you to drink a “nutrition” shake for lunch.

The end.
