Day 29

Day 29

it was such a good day, you guys (what?!?!?)

my day started bright and early (at work) with a user telling me via her actions that she remembered me (even though it’s been at least a year, though i think closer to two, since we’d spoken last) and that she really enjoyed working with me. that one simple exchange set me to glowing immediately.

and that would’ve been enough, right there, you know?

but no… the next person i worked with immediately after this one said something very similar about enjoying working with me. the words were even very close to the words used by the first person (ok Life, you show off ;-)). i tell you, if we’d had a power outage right then i’d have lit the entire neighborhood. no problem.

Day 28

Day 28

you. guys.

i made the absolute best sammich - ever - for dinner tonight. was feeling a bit less-than-wonderful… but still hungry. sliced up an avocado, and some cucumber, spread some mayo on multi-grain bread, and then added a big bunch of alfalfa sprouts on top. SO GOOD. Pinterest for the win, there.

-

it was a Monday today. for sure. the day just flew by, so that part was good. it was a tiny bit stressful, really just because of how busy it was, but what i noticed today is that i was able to keep a mostly even keel. i credit this gratitude experiment.

well - mostly that.

Day 27

Day 27

it was another busy day here - and i know there was something that was on my mind to write about, but again… i did not make note anywhere, or start the post when i was thinking about it. my bad :-)

day flew by, but i did get a lot done, including nap. not sure i’ll be able to get to sleep in time now for my super early morning tomorrow. actually, scratch that. it’s already almost 9:00 so that pretty much answers that lol

had some ideas today & did decide to start implementing them rather than spend days questioning myself. i’m realizing that my intuition actually is speaking to me on the regular and i am just not freaking listening! there are things i’m being guided to do, and i’m just taking them as random thoughts. so silly. so today i started listening. #progress

Day 26

Day 26

first thing this morning… that dog woke me up to go potty and eat. i should be grateful that it wasn’t actually first thing… it was 6:30, she did let me sleep until then, which was good. we went outside together, she trotted off into the yard to check out her territory and do her business, while i plopped down in one of the plastic turquoise Adirondack chairs we’ve got on the patio.

didn’t take but a minute before i noticed that i could breathe out there today. even though the sun was already coming up over the horizon, it wasn’t yet so hot and humid that i felt like i was walking into a wall of water. it was a good start to the day, friend.

speaking of good start… i’ve been thinking a lot about the idea of taking full responsibility for one’s life. not sure i’ll really go into it all here, not in this post at least, but i’ve seen so many places where this is such a sensitive topic. we do not like being told that we’re responsible for the things that happen in our lives, do we?

Day 25

Day 25

i actually found myself being aware of things i was grateful for through the day today. that, my friends, is definitely worthy of gratitude in and of itself. it’s working!

i’m grateful we got some good rain today after many promises of rain this week with little to show for it

obv, i’m grateful for the weekend

i’m grateful for seeing how i recreate the same damn thing over and over again in my life, and… more importantly… how to start shifting that. immediately.
