Things I’m thankful for….

Today is Canadian Thanksgiving.  So I thought I’d take a breath and give thanks.

  • I am thankful that I’m finally at a point where I accept my past (or most of it!!) as it has brought me to where I am today.  All my regrets, triumphs, loses and experiences. I will be the first to admit I’m still working on some things, but denial is not one of them. I have regrets from saying or not saying things, not doing things or confrontations I should have tackled at the time. I have accepted that I am a work in progress and I am okay with that. I like where and who I am right now.
  • I am thankful that I have people in my life that are supportive and encouraging.  I have friends that are theatre goers. I have a friend who will spend all day shopping (with lunch of course). I am part of an writer’s group. Plus I’m part of a supportive blogging community.
  • I am thankful that I can still run for the bus.
  • I am thankful for my home. I look around and I’m happy with what I see. I love the light that comes through the balcony door. I have trees out back that make me happy and again love the light that filters through them. Like right now as I type this post.
  • I am thankful I have a day job that doesn’t crush my spirit.
  • I am thankful that I still dream of possibilities and get excited over making plans and goals. That I add to my bucket list and get excited about that.

What are you thankful for? I’m also thankful I get to type this post, share it and send positive thoughts to everyone. Happy Thanksgiving.

You can always start now!

    Well they are all great things to be thankful for
    I share most of those things as well 🙂
    Although I was not able to be with family today, I did SKYPE with my grandchildren in Texas and talk to my mom – bless her heart!

    These are amazing things to be thankful for. I like the one about having a job that doesn’t crush your spirit – so important! I’m thankful for being able to spend time with my new granddaughter and for having an audience for my blog. It still surprises me!
