gratitude cafe

6 May 2012

this week i'm thankful for...

having amazeballs food (happened a lot this week, actually) - when new people find my blog and comment on it so i know they've been here! (hint, hint) - subtle signs of spring - hanging with my grandma (and mom, and auntie) at the dinner theatre - spending all weekend with my cousins, its been way too long since that happened! - the beautiful poetry in the pilgrim's progress - a real canadian meal - the amazing sunsets over the lake - monster strawberries!
and all of these delightful things:
- when the perfect song comes on when i'm running - having a short blurb of my writing featured on ocsplora - these indigenous hairstyles made me smile - seeing Chicago...i adore a good musical - getting back into the groove of running 5k - 1Samuel - skype chats - my family! - emails that make me smile - the pilgrim's progress...inspired! - playing monopoly deal with my brother and cousins - chillin in the spa under the stars - nana naps - heytells from alex :) -

hey, this guy called shawn anchor did a captivating ted talk on positive psychology, which i really enjoyed, and wholeheartedly reccomend. as he outlines towards the end of his message, i have totally felt a change in my perspective as i have ventured out on this adventure of gratitude - i can actually feel this practise changing the way i perceive things. now... what are YOU thankful for?!
