Do you ever have those days where you’re just like, “Damn, life is good!”?
The contentment that comes along with those days is the best. When I realize how lucky I am to just be alive and just to be able to experience things I find myself wanting fewer material objects. It’s almost as if my priorities are able to shift and the things that are supposed to matter, you know, the guts of life, are aligned to where they’re meant to be. (See this related post on gratitude.)
When I’m feeling grateful and content, I have enough, I am enough, and I’m not on the hunt for anything else. I’m able to just be right there.
Gratefulness equals contentment in a lot of ways.
Right now I’m grateful for: rain storms, being cold but then getting warm in a blanket, getting hot in the sun on a bench during lunch-time, getting things checked off my to-do list, packing supplies and stationary, frozen yogurt, seeing inside people’s lives through Instagram (I love how you can get to see what people’s lives look like all around the world and it doesn’t matter what language you speak because the images supersede the language barrier. The photos are insights into lives I wouldn’t otherwise get to see. It’s really pretty cool… can you tell I’m hooked?:)
What are you grateful for right now as you read this?

I try and post about things I'm thankful for on Thursdays. I think it's always important for people to step back, look at their lives, and appreciate the little things.
This week: leftovers (cheap grocery week!), pedicures as a reward for a long-term goal, an the BF (always!).
I am beginning to think I should get in on this instagram action via my android tablet.
I am grateful for a healthy body!
I am grateful for my new healthy granddaughter!
health, family, friends, love, music
I'm grateful for experiences! I'm making a concerted effort to focus on creating memories instead of constantly acquiring "stuff". Looking forward to Europe in a month and going to a Coldplay concert in November. :)
I am grateful that right now, today, everyone in my family is healthy…and we have great health insurance :)
