Today I am thankful for today and being motivated to reach my goals. I have back slide way to much and I am ready to be back at it and start moving toward my goals. How about you guys? Anyone else feeling particularly motivated today?

Hey guys! This time of year can be a little rough for some of us. I know when I get in those places I try really hard to find what I am thankful for...

So what are you thankful for?

Goodness, it is 81 today in Iowa (after long cold, rainy and sometimes snowy weather) so I'm really thankful for the beautiful weather! I got a nice run in last night and it feels good to have the windows open again. I'm not thankful for the allergies that comes with it but thankful for my allergy meds :)

What about you guys? After a long winter are you guys getting a nice spring finally?

Today I am thankful for the loved ones I have in my life and the ones that are gone that I have such fond memories of. I volunteer for an organization in Iowa called Amanda the Panda and their grief camp was this past weekend. It was wonderful to spend time with the kids, have a lots of fun with them and help them heal a little bit from their losses. It reminds you how precious life is and to cherish those you love. It feels wonderful to give back.

What about you guys? What are you thankful for today?

What I'm not thankful for is car problems and the amount it costs to fix but I'm really happy that it is my birthday week and this weekend I'm going out of town with my bf to celebrate my birthday.

How about you guys? Are you finding things to be thankful for today?

Today I'm thankful for my kitty cat to be my Valentine. He is sick and old and everyday I get with him I am thankful for. It's hard when they have been in your life for so long to watch them struggle.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

Gah how can I have not posted in here for so long?! Sorry about that. I know we as a whole aren't active here but I hope everyone knows if there is anything anyone needs we'll be here to rally them on.

For me I'm thankful for the ability to make small steps toward being healthy and happy. I had some injuries and a surgery that set me back but now that I'm through the wallowing and feeling sorry for myself I've been working out consistently and it feels so good.

What are you thankful for today?

I'm thankful for this team. I know we (I know speaking for myself :)) don't check in here to the team all that often but seeing all the people who belong to it, knowing I don't struggle alone, knowing that I could reach out if I needed, makes me feel less crazy.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday!

Good Morning! Hope everyone is having a fantastic day!

Today I'm thankful for school and work keeping me busy. It keeps my mind busy and on things that are productive. That and running. It's my 'mind sort out' time.

Today I'm thankful for my family :) I get to go to lunch with a bunch of them and I'm excited to see them. Oh and for my boss for letting me take a long lunch so I can enjoy my time with them.

Hey Aron! That is a good one. May not be ideal but at least it is something.

Today I'm thankful for lots of stuff but I guess the biggest one is good friends and family. I think I forget how much they love me and get wrapped up in my own crap. I was reminded in the last week how great they are.Oh and my big brother, it's his birthday today. I have a great big brother :)

Hope today is a good one!

Good Afternoon! Brand new year, brand new chance to be happy and healthy and on the right track to making our dreams come true.

Today I am thankful for having a chance to start over again. I am still alive and still kicking and I get to choose if I am happy or not. I chose happy today :)

Today I am thankful for being half done with dead week and almost done with finals. I am thankful my finals are tame compared to other people's. Once I am done with next week I have a month of down time and then next semester I only have one class to take. I need a break after this semester!

Hey guys...
I know it's been a while. Life has gotten crazy and I am sure you all can relate. Up until the last few weeks I couldn't find much to be thankful for. But I want to start focusing on the positive.

I am going through a divorce right now but I am thankful that I don't have to spend one more second with someone who doesn't love me and would intentionally hurt me the way he did. I am glad I can go home to my lonely little apartment with my cat and have a safe place to be and thrive. I know I will be ok and better then before all this ugliness has happened. I am already starting to feel it.

What are you thankful for today?

Today I am thankful for being alive. I was reminded today that it could always be worse. I feel like I was handed a really huge blow to my life but I know it could be worse. I just hope and pray that each day gets easier to deal with

It's been a while since I have wanted to post anything here but I have to start looking toward the positive. My husband told me three weeks ago that he cheated on me and wanted a divorce. Course I would love for the world to stop and let me mourn and cry and lie in bed for a while but it doesn't. I learned that after I lost my best friend 6 years ago.

So I am hoping if I can focus on the things I am still grateful for the day that I will feel better will come much quicker. Plus I have been working hard to not revert to old self destructive ways so I have to try and see the bright side. As hard as it is.

Today I am going to be thankful for finding an apartment quickly and being able to move in less then two weeks. I can't really stand to be in that house anymore then I already have been. I hope that it goes quickly and I can get all my stuff packed and stored or moved. I think this whole process will get a lot easier once I am out of that house.

Good Afternoon!
I hope everyone is having a great Monday so far.
Feels like I have been a bit more negative lately so I figure I need to start looking at the positive again.

Today I am thankful for my sister and her getting ready to have a baby! She and her husband had been trying for a long time (5-6 years) and finally got pregnant. She is due on Saturday and I can't wait! I love being an Aunt as it is and really excited for another one :)

Hope you all can find something today to be thankful for.

Jeckie those are awesome reasons to be grateful! I will second that :) I am thankful for my legs. Sometimes I think they aren't strong enough but then I run a 8 mile run today and they prove me wrong.

Good afternoon everyone! It is a beautiful day in Iowa...how about where you are?

I whined a bit in my blog so I will leave that there, but today I am grateful for giving myself the opportunity to make my life what I want it to be. I am back in school and to know I am working towards a degree that I will actually use to get a job I actually like is awesome. It's scary to make a change like that but feels so good to know that that risk will pay off. I will make it pay off :)

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Happy Monday! Stop by and say happy birthday to Aron if you get a chance!

Today I am thankful to have clean running water. We had a really bad flood where I live last week and all our water was turned off for a while and what we did have was dirty (8 water mains broke and drained the water towers and what not). But now it is up and running and clean. I guess the small things in life!

Have a wonderful day all!

Morning!

Today I am thankful for no damage to my home and to have power after this really bad storm passed through yesterday. A lot of people in town had huge branches down on their vehicles and homes and a lot of people lost power. We did but it was back on a few hours later. Some still don't have it back.

Hope you all have a great Monday!

Good friends are always something to be thankful for. They can really turn a bad day around. It's nice to have great people who care about you.

Today I am thankful for it being Friday and almost being done with work for the week :) I am also thankful for being able to dream and figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life. I have been stuck in a rut but now that I am really thinking and finding out what I want to do for a living, it feels great.

I hope today you can dream about your future too. Have a great one!

That is awesome! I could use another day off or even getting off early. Ah well.

I am thankful today for getting to go to the 311 concert with my husband. I got him tickets for his birthday. And I get to go out to dinner with my brother and two nephews, so that makes it even better!

Happy Tuesday!

That is good Rowena.

I am thankful for workouts that I love. I take a Zumba class on Monday nights and it truly can lift my spirits. It's great to have a workout that can make you smile.

I am thankful for a busy beautiful day. The weather here is finally going to be nice, instead of hot, humid and stormy.

Hope you all have a great Monday!

You do something with kids, right? A camp of some sort? I am trying to remember what I read in your posts.

I am thankful for having a half day at work :)

Hope you all have a fantastic Friday!

I am having a hard time finding something to be thankful for today. Has been a frustrating morning so far. But I don't wanna be whiny so I guess I will be thankful that I am alive. I know this mood will pass and I just have to ride it out and try and not spread any more negativity.

Today I am thankful for not getting rained on on my walk in to work today. There was a thunderstorm about 20 min away and you could hear the thunder and lightning but nothing where I live. Now lets hope for no rain on Saturday morning for the 5k that I am running!

Aron hope your feeling better today!

It is a beautiful sunny day here in Iowa today (after many days of rain and clouds). My garden loved all the rain though so I can't be too mad about it.

Today I am thankful for yoga. My knee is hurting (not entirely sure what I did) and hoping that yoga tonight will help me feel better. If anything else it will stretch out all my other sore muscles from bootcamp last night

Hope everyone has a great day!

Today I am thankful for coffee. I am so exhausted from the weekend and really could have used more sleep. Lots more :)
But someone has got to get some work done. So coffee here I come.

Hope today is a good Monday

Wow! Well I hope this is lucky number 7 :) Yay to reliable transportation. That would be super frustrating.

I am a huge animal lover. They are the best. They are just so sweet and loving and I really can't imagine life without them.

Today I am grateful for a successful birthday party for my husband last night. I got all the stuff I needed to done and he had a great time. So glad today is a lazy Sunday to recover :)

Girl, this is psych. medication #7 that I'm on right now.

Don't you just love pets! They're so non-judgemental.

Today I'm also thankful for reliable transportation. This is the first car I've had that has not died on me on a regular basis!

Aron that is great! I've never been on meds but I hear it can be quite the task to find the right one. I hope it keeps working for you!

Today I am grateful for my kittie. He has been super loving and snuggley today and I could definitely use that today. He just seems to know when I need some extra love :)

Sometimes all it takes is a change of perspective. I try and look on the bright side of things as often as possible and I know it helps me to divert my negative thoughts into something much more productive. When I feel down, that is when I have to force myself to think of good and positive things in my life. The more I do it, the more it becomes second nature.

So what are you thankful for today?

I am thankful for the rain we have had the last few days. It was made my garden grow so much. I can almost taste those garden fresh tomatoes now :) And now today I can enjoy the sunshine so much more
