✨Day 183!✨

Day 183 of what? Glad you asked, my gratitude challenge! It’s the halfway point! ✨✨✨

Today Otis, my 5&1/2 month old puppy, decided he wanted to be on my lap while riding the end of my gratitude list. So, it’s shorter today but filled with joy. Really, that’s all that matters.✨

I’m a little late today, but if I’m honest my day didn’t start off right. I am grateful for sleeping in even though it was not part of my plan, I think I needed the rest and I do feel rejuvenated. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Here’s my gratitude journal for today, with Otis’ help:

We went on our boat last night for the sunset and I am grateful for our boat because it’s fun being on the water and swimming, and spending time with my husband. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Here’s a moon flower that bloomed last night. Isn’t she pretty? I think so. ✨

As a reflection halfway point, I did go through a depression with the loss of my Scrappy and didn’t do much on this blog during that time. I still would wake up and think of one thing I was grateful for, but I didn’t do any mediation with it. And I think that’s completely fine. I know truly feel I can talk about him and it doesn’t mess up my day or mood. I look back with joy being able to have him in my life so long and I am so grateful for all the moments we had together. I do have to say how gratitude has changed my life in the most profound way and it made me more present, more alive. If you feel stuck in life, I suggest finding a gratitude book, a challenge, something to propel you into a routine of gratitude. Don’t beat yourself up if you miss a day either.

One of the more simpler daily practices is while you’re cooking or making something- think about how you’re grateful for every ingredient. How you’re grateful for the people who grew that ingredient from a seed or from an egg, and your grateful for the nourishment it gives to you and whoever you share your food with. It’s a simple practice I take the time to do every time I make dinner.

I also take an invisible shaker and pretend for real to shake love and magic into my meals. (You do you, it’s just how I add love to my meals.)

Sending lots of love- deep continual love to you! And of course light too! ✨✨✨

I’m constantly surrounded by farts, in all serious I am. Three stepsons—12,17,20 one gaseous daughter of 11, and a hungry husband, whose been trying to ditch oven me for the last three years! (I’m a ninja though, so he hasn’t succeeded yet 😉) Right now, I’m making my way through College- about a year and a half left, and then I’ll have a Bachelor’s degree in English and hopefully a book published or at least become a literary agent. In these posts I’m going to cheerfully complain about my kids complaining and the awful smells I endure on a regular basis. Hope ya’ll have fun reading from this artsy Michigander! 😏
