weekly gratitude: first edition


As a way to remind myself of the good things that happen during my week, I decided to participated in the Love, Life, Lace: Weekly Gratitude movement. It's important to remind myself that although I might have good/bad/ugly weeks, I have so many sources of hope, love, and inspiration in my life that bless me. I'm grateful for these things, but I don't always take the time to reflect. Yes, they may be silly, but together they make me very thankful for my life.

  • Thank you fat-free half and half for making my coffee so much tastier, especially because I drink 5 cups a day.

  • Thank you Epic Burger for being the best burger joint in Chicago, and thank you sister for joining me in my Epic obsession.

  • Thank you CTA bus driver who tried so desperately to get my fare card to work, and after four attempts, succeeded.

  • Thank you husband for taking the dog out when it's (literally) freezing outside and I don't want to 'layer up'.

  • Thank you radiator for the warm towel post-shower.

  • Thank you Mom for listening to me freak out about nonsense, and assuring me that it's all going to be okay.

  • Thank you Lennon for cuddling with me and keeping me company when husband is gone.

  • Thank you 2011 for a fresh start, and for renewing hope for the future.

(...This feels a little Alanis Morissette 'Thank You'...)

  2. >I do this every day or every two days. Counting your blessings is such a wonderful happiness booster. For the last 6 months I'm happier than I have ever been and all thanks goes to my gratitude journal. :)On another note this is my first time on your blog and as I'm acquainting myself with your site I would love for us to stay in touch via google/ facebook/ twitter.Please let me know how you feel about that and look forward to hearing from you LoveTashrin - A Toronto based personal style blog
