Twas the night before Thanksgiving...

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Tonight before the holiday, I am taking them time to write down all the people I am thankful for, the things in life I am thankful for, and the experiences I am glad to have had. Now this list could be a mile long, and I am so happy that I can say that. I do this every year, I write til it feels right. I would urge anyone that is struggling with the day, take this time. If you have the opportunity to share that list, then do so, tell the people on it that you appreciate them. I want to say how much I appreciate everyone in this community. You all each bring something important to my life. So glad that I have gotten the opportunity to know everyone. Blessings - Patti

Smile! The world is watching!

Sunday, November 23, 2014

Today I have worked hard to smile at any stranger I see. The holidays can be so dark and dreary. The smile I share maybe the only one that person saw today.

    My co-worker of 20 years lost her husband last night. She needs all the smiles she can get just to survive the holidays.

Today and Yesterday

Saturday, November 22, 2014

My goals for yesterday were to talk with a friend or family member - take a trip down memory lane. I talked with my kids, my hubby, my aunt and a friend at work.

Today was to take the time to appreciate animals. My kids and I stopped today to watch a flock of Canadian Geese going about their morning routine. My daughter pampered our dog with a really thorough brushing when we got home.

    My kitty needs some pampering. Guess I'll get off the computer and grab his brush. Thanks for motivating me.

Talk to someone on the fringe

Thursday, November 20, 2014

Today my goal is this:

Take time today to engage someone on the outside of your usual circle. Is there someone where you work with whom you would not normally talk? Strike up a conversation. If you know everyone at work, give a smile to someone who looks like they are not having the best day. Sometimes that is the only outside acknowledgement they may receive today. It only takes a moment, but it can mean the world to someone.

    I spent time with one of the substitute teachers today. I enjoy talking and getting to know new people.

Counting down to wellness

Monday, November 17, 2014

Everyday, I am going to try to post something positive for the day. A good thing that I am doing, a thought, etc. Surrounding myself with positive as we go into the winter months and SAD takes it's toll.

So today, my goal is to make something to give away. I will edit this later to show what happened.

I made lunch today to share with someone I work with.

She was very appreciative.

    I missed the 18th and 19th, but what I did those days was on the 18th I made a list of what I was thankful for with my job and on the 19th I looked through old photos and spent some time reflecting on those I love.
