gratitude thursday 1/3

I’m grateful grateful grateful. I’m sittin’ here on this cold morning wearing the shawl I finished last night. How nice. How nice to make this for myself. I am a shawl-making woman. Spent time last night looking for the next pattern I’ll take on.

I’m grateful for knitting. And for taking it slowly now so that I keep the pain in my arm quieter. It’s okay with me to knit part time; glad I can do it at all.

I’m grateful for my empowered and empowering schedule; I am my word to myself. Enough staring at knitting patterns; movin’ on.

I’m grateful the work I’m doing to complete this RFP; got a lot done yesterday.

I’m grateful for interest from someone who is looking for coaching. I have a new client starting in two weeks and have room for another one; maybe I’ve found her!

I’m grateful for acceptance. Letting go. Got a letter canceling a second date scheduled for this weekend. Okay. Not a good matchup. Not personal.

I’m grateful for support from my accountant; got my city taxes done in a snap and was able to hand deliver them to the tax office. Complete!

I’m grateful for the first date last night with a lovely woman. We have a lot in common; that feels very good to me.

Blessed be!

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.
