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 :

Even though I’m goal driven, I’m grateful that I’m not a competitive person. People who always need to win have a hole in their aura that is impossible to fill, and they ruin the fun of the game for others. I’m grateful for chocolate chip cookies, especially if they’re homemade and not too sweet. And, I’m grateful for all the time I spent teaching. It taught me to facilitate discussion, and shut down hecklers and assorted other blowhards. Life skills.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful that I’m a better traveler than I used to be. I’m grateful that traveling is so much easier than it used to be. And, I’m grateful for Martinis.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful for selfies. If it weren’t for them, I’d never have a decent picture, and my cyber stalkers would have nothing to be thirsty for… (!) I’m grateful for almond milk. Never thought I’d be saying that. And, I’m grateful for carrot cake. Whoever thought about putting carrots (and zucchini), into breads and cake is a culinary genius.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful that I don’t care enough about money to argue about it. I’m grateful for those dark chocolate KitKats. That’s a winner. And, I’m grateful it’s drying up. Spring is really here – we’re finally done with Winter.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful I was able to attend a Town Hall held by my congressional representative. I’m proud to have someone of her intelligence and integrity as our representative. I’m grateful for radishes. They’re spicy, and delicious, and the most underrated root vegetable since the parsnip. And, I’m grateful I don’t take Agents too seriously. I certainly understand why no one ever thanks them, though.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

Today was a day that I really didn’t feel like going anywhere or talking to anyone, and I’m so glad that I didn’t have to… I’m grateful to have multiple heat sources. Trying to sleeping when it’s too cold or too hot is just horrible. And I’m grateful for email. Sometimes I remember what life was like before email. It was slow.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful for the shift in energy…like that first bump in the descent after a long flight. You know you’re close now….I’m grateful the election is not far off. I’m grateful to awaken to cloudy, cool skies and to have the doors open during the day, and the fan on at night. Such a relief to sleep with fresh air.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful that I’m fearless. People regret the chances not taken, not the failures. I’m grateful for every single one of my personal and professional failures. Each has pushed me toward enlightenment and away from shitty people, and I’m grateful for my success. It’s the best revenge.

The end.
