Sometimes when I let myself pause in this hectic life of mine I’m overcome with all the goodness.
My supportive, loving family just miles from me. A nephew who is pure joy. A job that matters and allows me to do good in the world. Old friends and new friends who light me up from the inside out. A comfy, cute apartment in the heart of an awesome neighborhood. Financial stability. Co-workers to laugh and cry with. Cats who are quirky furballs of love. Health. Laughter. The rain, the green, the crispness of the autumn air. The kindness of strangers. Possibility. So much love. So much.
I am blessed.
I am grateful.

I just sat in a rocking chair on a porch and looked out at the ocean and realized how really fundamentally lucky I am to have what I have and do what I do, for the very most part. It gets cloudy in the day to day sometimes, it just so happens I’m in the right place to get the message at the moment. Convenient timing. 🙂
Have a great holiday.
Hope you and yours are having a relaxing and enjoyable day!
I am lucky to have found you, and thankful that your courage is giving me the courage to finally be honest in blogland.
Happy gobble gobble day.
Hope you had a good Thanksgiving…
Gonna jump on the bandwagon and say that I love your blog… thank you.
Happy Thanksgiving, Sizzle.
I am glad you are one of the shiny spots in my life. Thanks to you, and Maya Angelou both, for being encouraging!
I’m with Bully… Maya Angelou quote was perfect. I hope your holiday weekend is going well, and that you have some time to breathe. 🙂
Stopping to count blessings never ceases to put me in the best and most thankful of moods. Here’s to being thankful, always. xoxo
Let’s go! Love it! Happy Thanksgiving!
I love all of it and especially the last line about taking life by the lapel. Thank you for a reminder I needed.
ah, that was lovely
You do have so much good stuff going on in your life. I’m so glad for you.
