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.
