This is the first week of 2013. In year’s past, I would have a resolution like, lose weight, go to the gym, eat better, get home to see family, the usual. This year however, I am dedicated to being truly thankful for my life and all the blessings in it.
Just to be clear, I am already so aware of how amazing my life is. I am stronger and healthier than I have ever been. I am in a happy relationship with a wonderful man, my King Edward. I have insanely adorable (if slightly unruly) furry children. My parents, and my sister are healthy. The extended family is safe and healthy and mostly happy. My step-son and his mother are close by and add to my daily list of blessings. I have an amazing circle of friends, near and far who make my days brighter. And I have a job I love and the opportunity to continue my education. These are big, important, life affirming things and I am truly thankful for each of them.
But there are many other things that I am thankful for this year. Smaller little miracles that make me smile, or make me cry, and fill my life with joyous moments. So I think that it is important to recognize those as well. There are 365 days in a year. I am shooting for one per day. One special item to focus on each day that made me say, “Yep, that is pretty awesome.” Keep checking in and I will do my best to share some of them with you.
Love, hoops, and happiness everyone!
