We all have really crappy days where almost everything irritates us and drives us mad and, at the end of the day, all we want to do is snuggle in a warm bed, take a hot bath, or drink a cup of hot tea (or large glass of red wine) just to unwind. Somehow those little things we look forward to at the end of the day can turn a crappy day into just another and then we go to sleep and hope for a more promising tomorrow.
I want to make an honest attempt to truly appreciate those things that make my days worth it, so I am going to blog about the things that I am grateful for, probably one thing every day. I cant promise that it will be terribly exciting, but it’s more like a reminder for me that every day we are given small blessings that make us happy and make us smile and make us forget about the annoying drive to work or the fact our glasses we ordered three weeks ago are still not in. Maybe, after a while, it will help me recognize the small blessings when they are happening, rather than having to sit down and think, and not to take them for granted.
So starting today, February 24, 2011, I will catalog my blessings and things I am grateful for Every day for a whole year. Im sure some will be more meaningful than others, but i guess being meaningful isnt really the point. Its my own path of happiness, I’m just letting you all in on the fun.
Here we go…
