I’m happy to report that yesterday got rapidly better as the day went on, and my general outlook became sunnier along with it.  I got some things done at work that I was really proud of and I found a little peace with where I am in the process of some personal goals.  Sometimes I need to give myself a break…dreams take time, determination and most of all – patience. There is no need to rush when I am being as proactive as I can, especially when this very moment is so good.

The more I think about it…the more I realize how much my current life rocks.  That’s why I’ve decided to do a grateful list on this special Friday:

1.  I am grateful for a job that challenges me in all sorts of new ways, especially as a leader.
2.  I am grateful for Friday mornings.
3.  I am grateful for Baby Kitty, who is always waiting for me to come home.
4.  I am grateful for my mom, who accepts random calls from me at night when I think someone is trying to break in my mini house. 🙂
5.  I am grateful for $1 movie rentals from the drug store.
6.  I am grateful to have a handful of friends on speed dial who will eat cheap Mexican food with me on a moment’s notice.
7.  I am grateful for the occasional glass of red wine.
8.   I am grateful for Crestwood Coffee, where I can camp out with my laptop for hours to write or plan while eating a bowl of homemade soup or drinking a cup of almond milk hot chocolate.
9.  I am grateful for my 3 mile running route around Highland Golf Course that I know like the back of my hand.
10.  I am so effing grateful for Instagram.  God I love that app.
11.   I am grateful for my purple notebook that has all kinds of random crap that I’ve written in it.
12.  I am grateful that I turn 33 in one week!!!  Happy Birthday to meeeeeeeeee. 😀

I am grateful for inspiration, passion and purpose.

Enjoying red wine & Crestwood Coffee. 🙂
