1. My supportive husband who never stops encouraging me and trying to make me happy.
2. My little lab Pitbull mix who keeps me active and makes me laugh everyday.
3. My neighbor/BFF/running buddy going on my 10 mile long run yesterday (because if she didn't I probably would have turned around much earlier).

5. My friends Julie and Mandy who are great old friends and both work to stay connected over the miles.
6. The weather this week is looking like we won't have ice so I should be able to run outside.
7. I actually feel like my husband and I are starting to build a life in our new area. We have made friends, we know places to go, we both have great jobs. We are really lucky.

The Universe does not know whether the vibration that you're offering is because of something you're observing or something you're remembering or something that you are imagining. It just receives the vibration and answers it with things that match it. (Ester Hicks)


"The common meaning of gratitude is to be thankful for benefits received. While this is important, I feel that the energy of gratitude is one of the most powerful attracting forces in the universe. A heart filled with Thanksgiving, even when appearances tell us that we are mired in scarcity, conflict, and affliction, moves us to a higher frequency in consciousness -- and we soon witness reality shining through the illusion."
- John Randolph Price emoticon

The idea here is to write at least five things you are grateful or appreciative each day, thus cultivating an attitude of gratitude I will be here with my 5 when it is February for me. I appreciate everyone who joins me in this tradition.

emoticon
"Let a man strive to purify his thoughts. What a man thinketh, that is he; this is the eternal mystery. Dwelling within himself with thoughts serene, he will obtain imperishable happiness."
- Upanishads
