Day 100 - 100 Days of Gratitude

Sunday, January 15, 2017

Well, I had planned to just say that although I would continue to be grateful for big and little things, I was grateful today to no longer feel obligated to write about it. It's quite a long undertaking. But guess what ... a very simple "something" happened this morning that I immediately felt so grateful to have witnessed, my first thought was, "I'm going to blog about this today":

I had awakened VERY early, 4 a.m.ish, and finally decided to watch some recorded Dr. Oz shows, and what pops up but, "How to Jumpstart Your Sluggish Thyroid." There were so many easy, natural remedies for revving your metabolism that I'm going to keep this recording forever. You can find it here:

Then I turned to the CBS morning show, and a couple (Shovels and Rope) that sings American Folk songs sang these lyrics as a refrain:

"I can't ever remember feeling so alive,
I need more fingers to count the ones I love,
This life may be too good to survive."

What a poetic way of saying,"I'm having so much fun loving life, I'm surrounded by loved ones, I just may die of ecstasy."

I am so grateful to have heard that at the start of my very long day--I am soaring right through it, and may never come down.

Soon I will be traveling and anticipate some challenges even logging on to Sparkpeople, but every so often I will again post some thoughts that "strike me." Having developed the habit of noticing events and people that touch my life, I'm much more sensitive to the many things for which I should take a moment to be grateful.

    I love your gratitude Journal. We should all concentrate on being more thankful and grateful for what we have before us. We should place ourselves in circumstances that lead toward a special thankfulness in our hearts that cannot be denied. God bless you!

    What a GREAT share Jonnie...I had missed that Dr. Oz episode...so I'm happy you snagged it. I'm going to try some of Dr. Turner's suggestions and those smoothies look to die for! emoticon I've been taking the time to make egg omelet packed full of low starch veggies...but it does take TIME and my mornings are always hectic...especially now that we are back to the 6 day a week drudge...just hate 6 days...but oh well...retail life goes on right? emoticon emoticon

    Wonderful post. Gratitude is so uplifting. I'm grateful I clicked on this since I have Hashimotos. Despite being on thyroid meds my metabolism is slow as molasses. I'm going to check that Dr. Oz out. Thanks!!
