Thankful Thursday!Thursday, October 06, 2011
I have noticed that several of my friends & acquaintances are struggling with a bad case of the crummies. I think this week has just been a stressful and weird time for a lot of people, myself included. Fortunately, time never stands still and all of this will soon pass. As Annie once said, "The sun will come out tomorrow." I just want to send out positive vibes to anyone who is also stuck in a rut or battling a funk. The doldrums are never a fun place to be stuck, but I truly believe that things will get better if you just push through and try to stay positive.
With all that has been going on this week, I definitely need to compose a gratitude list and get my thankfulness on. What about you?? What are you thankful for this week?
My family...for their constant support & love. True, they may not be the perfect or ideal family, but they are my people and they have supported me continuously since I was young. They are part of who I am as a person, and I'm genuinely grateful to have such a stone-cold pack of weirdos on my side.
Little Busts of Happiness
My iPhone 4, strawberry frozen yogurt, the way Apollo always knows when I need extra snuggles or a face full of whiskers & purrs, when my sister cooks dinner, the sound of a typewriter clicking and clacking, close friends who text you encouraging messages and make you feel loved, vanilla diet coke, purple fountain pens, antique stores, earl gray with a honey stick, adventures with exciting friends, sleeping in on the weekend, creating late-night collages on polyvore, new sponsors, sour dill pickles, The Lion King on Blu-ray, having someone amazing to run to when things start getting rough, pink glitter nail polish, Halloween decoration shopping, Italian salad from my favorite local restaurant, rose garden scented Yankee candles, fresh laundry, checking out Breakfast at Tiffany's from the library and reading most of it in one sitting while curled up with my fox terrier, cleaning sprees, the perfect pair of grey mary jane flats, pet costumes for Halloween, Fantastic Fish and Hanging with Friends for iPhone ( my plus+ account is princessjacque and my words/hanging with friends user name is happytobequirky. Add me and we can play!), my faithful and trusty filofax, brand new office supplies, and chicken tortilla soup.
Lots of love & positivity!
