30... +1, more reasons to live and be thankful!!!

Sunday, December 01, 2013

Hi Friends!

I hope everyone had a GREAT Thanksgiving!

I watched all month how people on FB were listing every day another reason to be thankful in the spirit of thanksgiving. Personally, I had mixed feelings about that one; I thought we should find reasons EVERYDAY to be thankful, not just the month of November for thanksgiving... and so I read my friends and families reasons and kept thinking that maybe I should be thankful... but then could I REALLY come up with 30 reasons? I found myself fearing whether or not I could even get half way through the month... so I didn't.

Well shame on me for thinking too much about it all instead of just... being thankful.

I think it IS a great thing to at least remind ourselves yearly just how thankful we are... even though we are so busy throughout the year to stop on most days to be thankful, I am starting a new tradition...

I am breaking down to prove something to myself...

One: that I can find 30 reasons to be thankful...

And Two: that I can find something every day too!

So here we go:

1. I am thankful for the most wonderful son in the world!

2. I am thankful for the friends and family who support me!
3. I am thankful I have people who love me!
4. I am thankful for the strength to get out of bed every day!

5. I am thankful for my friends on FB and SP who inspire me every day!
6. I am thankful for every test I pass which makes me stronger!
7. I am thankful for having awesome people behind my scenes that help my business grow!
8. I am thankful for my husband… even with our problems, he tells me every day he loves me!

9. I am thankful for patience!
10. I am thankful for the little things today which I realized later weren’t so little!
11. I am thankful for the veterans in this country that help me to be free!

30. I am thankful for the ability to put a down-payment on the house of my dreams!

+ 1… I had an addition to my Live it List: A request of my husband to give him a private dance on our own “stripper pole” in our new pool room of our brand new house. I agreed that when I hit normal BMI, I will… so that being said… thankful reason # 31… I am thankful that my husband can still think of me as sexy even though I do not look as such right now!

So… there it is friends, I have proven that I can list 30… + 1 reasons to be thankful. Point proven to me, and I have also added it to my new Live it List Spark Team as a daily challenge! Come join me on my new team:
