New Opportunities, New Life

Today is a beautiful day. The sun is shining. The air is fresh. My soup was still hot when I finally sat down to eat it.
I am reflecting on some of the positive things that have been happening in my life recently. Sometimes I get wrapped up in thinking about the negative bits of my day and I forget to take a minute to thank the world for the opportunities it has given me. I am sitting at my desk (which has been decorated with things that bring me joy), in an office (that is full of people who offer the best kind of emotional support), drinking my favorite drink (iced tea), and thinking about how lucky I am to live this life.
Today is a good day.
Not all days are this good. But I’m happy that I’m taking a minute to think about how good this one is.
Today, I am thankful for having a warm lunch. I am thankful for the cold October air at my ankles. I am thankful that the sun is shining. I am thankful for LDB, who makes me a better person. I am thankful that I have an excellent opportunity for success in my education. Today, I am thankful for me.

What makes today so good for you?

    The sun is shining. My tea is hot. I am wearing my favorite Harry Potter shirt. I get to see my coworker and good friend Ally Cat in just a little bit. I am surrounded by pictures of my friends and family smiling at me, reminding me why I am doing what I am doing.

    My coffee is yummy, and a have a super exciting salad for lunch that I can’t wait to eat
    It’s my first LONG day at work!! (Willow and I had a pep-talk so she’s going to have a great day at daycare, she has her FAVORITE lunch: toast with hummus and avocado, plums, pears, and I gave her her favorite BEET AND STRAWBERRY (sounds gross, tastes delicious) rice cereal as a treat in case she gets sad!)
    I’m surrounded by pictures of my beautiful girl
    I’m listening to my favorite music and being super productive!
    I’m finally starting to save a little money and thats awesome!!!
    Writing this just made me so happy I’m sitting alone in the office smiling at myself like a CRAZY LADY! I’m ok with that!
