Gosh this week went by fast! You agree? I’ve spent the week writing and exploring my new town. I fall in love more and more every day, even amongst the mixed bag of emotions that inevitably occurs when you make big changes in your life. Sometimes I sit in my big apartment, with empty rooms (since I got rid of all my furniture when I started traveling) and I feel all alone out here, and sometimes I’m surrounded with friends and things to do and am overwhelmed with glee. Such is life…the pendulum swing, the juxtaposition, the full range. But I know in my heart I’m exactly where I need to be right now and I’m SO grateful I found my way here.
I love Fridays because it’s such a great day to reflect on the week and remember all the wonderful things that we’ve experienced. Don’t forget that even the bad stuff is wonderful too. Below is my gratitude list for the week. I hope that you’ll join me in creating your own gratitude list. Please leave a comment below to share it!
I’m very grateful for:
Country dancing at Mixer’s on Wednesday nights. The fact that I now believe that a day in the 40’s is good weather. Pure Barre classes. That one Jason Mraz song I love. Having my entire wardrobe back in my possession. Friends who have reached out after awhile of being out of touch. Crying to my sister the other day. The two old ladies that are knitting on the couch next to me at the coffee shop. Finding out about the archery class down the road. When I get feedback about my blog. The opportunity to write here every week. My clients. My coach, Helen House. My loving and supportive family. The coffee shop below my apartment. MY APARTMENT! My friend Ryan who helped me paint my room. Outfits. Friendly and helpful strangers. The excitement of a new place. And the fact that I stumbled upon THIS on my afternoon walk the other day (I mean, could it be more pretty??)
Now it’s your turn. What are you grateful for, right now, in this moment? Don’t forget to leave a comment below. Have a wonderful weekend and see you back on the blog on Monday!
