On this Thankful Thursday, I am thankful for:
The first clutch of daffodils
Strong coffee & real conversation
Soothing classical music that plays while I'm on (terminal) hold with the insurance company
Skiing under a bluebird sky
Brave, a lipstick, and a critical tool in the fake-it-til-you-make-it approach to life
An editor who returns my work with pages of red-ink revisions
Online shopping, and the miracle of purchased items actually fitting
Pisces. Perceptive, creative, sensitive. Thankful I have so many good Fish in my life.
This practice of pausing for gratitude. At my most resistant, when I'm gloomy and frayed with the effort it takes to find a thread of thanks, it really is true that when I sit down and focus, gratitude gains speed and power. Inevitably, I find myself genuinely thankful.
