Do you practice gratitude every day? I wish I did, but I don’t. Most days fly by and if ‘practicing gratitude’ wasn’t on my to-do list, it didn’t happen. Then there are those rare days where I’m able to find a few extra moments, with no distractions, to think about all that I’m grateful for.
My time off over Thanksgiving was a great gift. In between eating too much turkey and having a great time with my family I was able to find a few minutes to think about all that I’m grateful for.
Here are a few of the things I’m most thankful for:
My running shoes. They allow me to easily explore new places when I’m on vacation. I used them over Thanksgiving to run over for a visit with my bloggy friend, Micaela from Mindful Momma, in Madison, Wisconsin (no, I didn’t run to Madison from Boston)!
My laptop. It allows me to connect with amazing people from all over the world and find work that’s inspiring and fulfilling.
My family of Red Sox fanatics and extended family of Badger and Packer fans.
My sponsors and clients. Their support allows me to continue to do what I love to do. If you jumped ship on Black Friday and are still in the market for deals on eco-friendly, non-toxic and green holiday gifts check out some of my sponsors over to the right———>
Change makers. I am thankful for all of the bloggers and non-profits like Healthy Child Healthy World who are working together to protect our children and families from harmful chemicals.
My readers. I am grateful for each and every reader of this site. You have given me encouragement, advice and support that makes this site work. Whether you have left a comment, sent an email or just read the articles, you have helped to make a difference.
And for all of the above I say THANK YOU.
What are you thankful for? Do you find the time to practice gratitude?
