gratitude thursday 10/23

Thursday morning, 8:35 a.m. Up, showered, dressed.

Did my six minutes of low-impact aerobics. Heart is pumping.

Got some body work yesterday. Yum and double yum. Had a wonderful massage — first time with this practitioner — how nice to have a satisfying massage. And then a visit to my chiro. I feel pretty great.

My chiro gave her attention to my sneakers and their dissatisfying fit. She suggested different insoles and to only wear them while working out. Sounds good to me.

I am so grateful for my sister. How nice to have someone in my life whom I can call and say *What’s for dinner?* and then invite myself over. Excellent.

I’m grateful for business relationships. Spent time with a new business friend yesterday. We checked out Rotary. Yes I know I need to network and be of service; I am dead certain that Rotary is not the right vehicle for me. Now I know.

I’m grateful to be eating food again. Nice.

I’m grateful to be at peace. A gift. I’m grateful to be showing up in my life. Another gift.

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression.
