Blog that was brought about by a commercial with Ben Affleck.

Sunday, January 27, 2013

I was just innocently watching a Monk marathon on tv, when a commercial came on with the ever so handsome, Ben Affleck... It was for the organization End Hunger... Now, I had no plan on writing a blog today....I was just going to rest this evening, enjoying the detective with OCD....Simple pleasures. emoticon Yet, this commercial got me to thinking and that thinking got me to writing this blog. emoticon
I just want to say that I am so thankful that I have the money that I need for all of the healthy fruits and veggies to keep me healthy....I am thankful for the overabundance of clean water that I have to keep my body working effectively. I am thankful that I have the blessing of having too much food to eat.... I am thankful for my needs being met so that I have the time and energy to exercise for the pleasure of it!!!!! I feel truly BLESSED!!!!!! Sometimes a change in attitude is all that is needed! emoticon

    I was doing a mindful eating challenge and I think that if we are grateful for our food as we eat it, that is really the thing.

Also, love Monk. People used to always ask me if I'd seen it because I remind them of him or something, and after I had my baby I finally saw one and watched all 8 seasons in about a month!

    So true! Those of us who share these blessings need to take a few moments now and then to recognize that we should not take such things for granted. Thanks for the reminder.

p.s. I do love a good Monk marathon!

    Amen to that! I will definitely say that having access to all those wonderfuly healthy foods and the yummy water that we have here in Memphis makes me grateful that I'm here, have the means and am able to achieve all that I've achieved health-wise.

Thanks for helping to keep our perspectives in check. :)

    Grandma had less to be thankful for than I do, yet she was grateful every day. She always told me to count my blessings (which sounded so trite to my ungrateful ears). Yet, as with most of the things I remember from Grandma, she was right. Gratitude is Prayer 101.
