Habit Of Being Grateful

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

A Rough & Grateful Start

The New Year certainly started off like a roller coaster! I got back from my trip & was on such a high. Then I landed, I checked my email & read that my co-worker’s cousin died in a nasty car accident. Her mom (coworkers aunt) just passed away from cancer 2 mos ago, now this!? I was feeling her pain on the plane. The ride home was a bag of mixed emotions. I needed some welcome home luvin’ & Andre was sick but of course that didn’t stop me. We quietly spent New Year’s at home & today I woke up sick for work feeling like crap! (womp womp) My car is acting up, there’s no AC in the office & my co worker is pouring all this emotion on me. It’s only Jan 2nd. Calgon take me awaaaaaaayyyy! I sat back with my cup of green tea that says “Come sit with me & let us talk about happy things” & I thought how most of this will pass, heal with time or could be fixed & how I should be grateful for all I do have & for being present & back in FL where it’s warm. So I’ll ride the coaster with its twists & turns & try to smile, even if I have snot comin’ out my nose. At least it’s THU & not MON. Now can someone please fast forward to the 8th when I’ll be better & AHS comes back, I’m having withdrawals.
