The Little Things

It is nearly Thanksgiving here in Canada and I woke this morning with a bit of a woe is me attitude.  I am removing those thoughts from my mind and taking charge of my thoughts by remembering all of the reasons I have to be thankful. 

I am grateful for:
  • My supportive family.  I love that my brothers and I are now friends.  I love that my mum and I practice yoga together.  I love those moments I get all alone with my dad.
  • My home.  I've been living in this small place for nearly 5 years.  It's been good to me.  LW now lives here with me.  We actually manage alright in a small space together.
  • My friends.  Most of them are so far away, but I'm happy they are wherever they are.
  • My bed.  It is one of my favourite places in the world.
  • My Dutch heritage.  I am very proud to be Dutch.  To speak Dutch.  To look Dutch.
  • My LW.  He came home from the library last week with a dictionary size book of quotes.  One of the reasons I love him.
  • My yoga practice.  It is taking me on a journey of self discovery that can be painful at times but that I find perfect.

Loved your grateful list. Very helpful for me to read. My yoga journey (practicing & teaching) at the moment is a little bumpy and painful....good reminder to be grateful for my journey allowing me to open up and feel!
