Gratitude/Appreciation List

To be truthful, I'm feeling kind of down in the dumps. I don't know if I am picking up on energetic frequency related to Blue Monday, or if this is the consequence of releasing a bunch of old stuff in my yoga class yesterday morning. Whatever the reason, I thought I'd write a gratitude/appreciation list to try to pull myself out of it.

I am happy and grateful because:
1. I am healthy, with full use of my physical, mental, emotional and spiritual capabilities.
2. I have a loving and supportive family that is 100% behind me at all times.
3. I have a beautiful condo in downtown Toronto.
4. I am surrounded by an abundance of beautiful friendships, both old and new.
5. I have a closet full of shoes!
6. I'm having a facial tonight.
7. My calling has recently been revealed to me.
8. Many things have miraculously fallen into place since that happened.
9. There is beautiful, soul stirring, gut wrenching music in the world.
10. I have 2 parties to go to on Friday night with many different friends.
11. I am re-starting taiko drumming classes tomorrow night.
12. I am blessed with constant opportunities for change, growth and evolution.
13. Of Lynne.
14. Westies are the cutest dogs on earth.
15. I'm having lunch in 5 minutes and I will get a nice hug.
16. There's chocolate on the table at work.
17. My friend at work bought my Americano for me this morning.
18. I can see the good in most situations.
19. That sometimes simple things touch me so much, I cry.
20. That I have this blog as an outlet of expression.

What a list - I often do a list myself. Sometimes as often as daily if I get to be the ungrateful bas**** that is my default.

Today it contains stuff like.

o Warmth (our winters here - well 2degC :-))
o Music
o Where I live
o love
o life
o opportunity
o respect of others
etc.

Does me good to remind myself how fortunate I am.

Hope your gratitude list pushed up your spirits! Have you ever done a placemat? It's a daily list of things you will DO, things you will BE, and things you'll give to the Universe to take care of. Very helpful!

Hey, I am moving to a new blog b/c I have people reading my old blog who shouldn't be. Here's the link:

I thought of you as I flew into TO Airport yesterday (flying back from Miami)... It's FREEZING in TO. I'm thankful that I made my connecting flight because I can run relatively fast, thankful that my luggage finally made it back this morning too, thankful that I'm home and it's sunny here and I don't see anymore SNOW!
