Grateful for so much

Even before I took on the Tiny Prints Gratitude Challenge I was already very focused on appreciating the good things in my life rather than lamenting the things I didn’t have. I haven’t stopped. (And not just because that ended so fortuitously.)

I love how pausing and thinking about the things I’m grateful for can turn a bad moment or even a bad day around. Even on a good day it doesn’t hurt to ‘Take note and give thanks.’

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the U.S. In honor of it and the upcoming holiday season I challenge you to take the 21 day Gratitude Challenge. (Or the 7 day one if you just don’t think you can maintain that level of positive thinking.) It might not result in you snagging the coolest job evah, but it might change your outlook on your day to day life. And frankly that’s nothing to sneeze at.

We’re heading to Tahoe to spend the weekend with part of M’s family and you can bet that I’m going to make them all share a few things they’re grateful for. It’s good for the soul and it sparks awesome conversations. Before I go I’m leaving you with a few of the things I’m grateful for and an inspiring video to get you started on your quest.

I’m grateful for…
– My husband, who is the most understanding and supportive man I could ever have hoped to snag.
– My kids, who, even when they are sick or grumpy, are loving, funny, and sweet.
– My sisters. I don’t see them often enough, but I feel their love despite the distance.
– My parents, also too far to hug, but never too far to appreciate!
– My friends, virtual, real, far, near. Love them all, need them all.
– My life. It’s not what I would have imagined for myself, but nothing I had dreamed of touches a candle to it.

I wish you all a fabulous, loving, and fun Thanksgiving. (Yes, even if you aren’t in the US.)
