1. I am grateful for Steph's support and encouragement. In the comments on my blog and in the shout outs on hers. I feel like I have a personal cheerleader and just knowing that someone is out there rooting for me is so motivational. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Steph.
2. I am grateful for this challenge. I was creating the prompts for my last few days and I became flooded with emotion, both happy and sad. I can see some very noticeable changes in my attitude and I don't want those changes to go away when this challenge is over. I think I may adapt Steph's idea and post my 3 gratitude's at the bottom of all future posts.
3. I am grateful for a second mid-week lunch date with D.
Painting is always one of the things I think my real true self will enjoy. It's on all my lists and it's written in all of my journals. Somewhere along the lines I got the idea that happy calm people like to paint.
I finally gave it a try.
I do not enjoy painting.
I'm glad that I tried.
Here's to finding what my real true self enjoys.
I exercised my mouth at lunch with D instead of going to the gym.
Stella got her groove back! When all else fails I put on my I AM meditation and boom, I'm back in it to win it. There's something truly incredible about hearing a million I AM statements (all positive) to put you on top of the world.

I use to give UBER drivers I didn't like (because they talked too much) a low score. I've stopped doing that because of this challenge. Even annoying people deserve a job. If you make me car sick you still get a 3 but if you're just chatty I'm giving you a 5.
Steph, thanks for being one of three people reading this :). Until tomorrow. XOXO.
I love your thoughts on painting. I was walking through a bookstore today and saw books about calligraphy and watercolor and thought "hmmm, I should like that..." but I'm not good at being artistic. It would just disappoint me when I sucked at it. I didn't buy the books. I'll continue to admire other people's works on etsy. I hope you keep your positive mindset - maybe post weekly or monthly just to keep yourself accountable (and because they're nice to read?)ReplyDelete
You are so welcome. You do have a cheerleader out here on the east coast!ReplyDelete
I've really enjoyed including my thankfuls on the bottom of my posts on the days I can remember.
I always thought my true self was a fiction writer. She is not. I have tried to force her to be many, many times. She has pushed me off every time. I've finally listened.
