Writing is the new praying.....
Some gratitude for right now:
I am grateful for newly ripe tomatoes
I am grateful for almost ready to harvest pumpkins
I am grateful for a speedy recovery
I am grateful for my roomie
I am grateful for my sisters
I am grateful for a purpose
I am grateful for blogging
I am grateful for my Texas, the heartbeat at my feet
I am grateful for books, a way to get away for a few hours (or minutes if that's all I have)
I am grateful for COBRA which I was able to take advantage of in the nick of time
I am grateful for the people who sent their good energy to shore me up during my crisis
I am grateful for my home
I am grateful for my friends, who love and accept me just as I am, warts and all
I am grateful for cool breezes at night and in the early hours of the morning
I am grateful for the sliver of moon I can see out my window
I am grateful for the opporutinity to change my life with school
I am grateful for the love I have in my life
I am grateful to be alive
I am a woman on a mission to begin the life I have taken for granted for too long. Many changes have come in the last five years and while I have weathered them, I have not seriously taken any action to make changes for the enrichment of my life. The stories of my journey will be posted here......stay tuned for daily status of finally living a life not lived.....
To really live.....quit waiting for tomorrow....what if tomorrow never comes....what if you wake up, get dressed and head off to that job you hate and you get hit by a bus on the way.....what will you regret NOT doing? Telling someone you're sorry for hurting them? Giving your kid the 'attaboy' he or she needs to get them to the next level in their growth? Telling your friends how much they mean to you? Being there for your spouse when they've had a really bad day? Or, maybe you keep saying you're going to finally become the person you were meant to be......and you missed your chance because you didn't believe that NOW IS THE RIGHT TIME!
Been There, Done THAT..........
Spend more time with the people I love Read more....lots more Finish unpacking Take more pictures Set up my bench Use my bench Use the picture editing software on my computer Own a NIKON Tend the garden.....lovingly Have more company over for food..... Go to Blog camp in Reno Go to a Monastery and listen get a new defibrillator test out of some classes for M.A. Program finish medical assistant school
