My favorite day of the week is TODAY. It's what I can deal with and focus upon instead of what happened yesterday or trying to figure out what might happen tomorrow.
Today, I'm grateful for a supportive group on Facebook. This month we're called the April Ambitions. Each month we have changed our name to reflect the current month, but the mission is the same: get rid of the excess in our lives. We ask each other questions, request feedback, and generally let each other know that we have similar feelings when it comes to the "stuff" in our lives. We are about to celebrate one year together, and while some members are very active in contributing, others have said they simply enjoy being able to read the posts and to get ideas. We love new members, just ask to join.
Today, I'm grateful for the conversation Jack and I had about our house and our future move. It was reflective of our individual personalities. I'm of the attitude of when we jump the net will appear. He would rather be able to see that net before he jumps. That's what makes us work. We are alike in so many ways, but our differences show our individuality. We force each other to think outside our comfort zones.
Today, I'm grateful for our open house. No, it didn't yield any offers but once again the home is spotless. Since it has been on the market, it has been pretty easy to maintain the cleaning and doesn't take us long to complete before a showing.
Today, I'm grateful for making the decision to go ahead and start boxing things up that I know we will take with us. I have boxes, newspaper, and bubble wrap. I might as well get started while I have the time rather than wait until the house is sold. It will make the move easier.
Today, I'm grateful for beautiful weather. It is gorgeous outside. It's a day like this that reminds me why I love living where I do. Blue sky, bright sun, very little wind, and almost 70 degrees. People are outside working on their lawns and taking walks with their families. You can't beat it.
Take a few moments in your day to reflect on what is good about it, because I promise you that there many reasons to be grateful if you just take the time to think about them.
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
