Counting My Blessings

I have had a rough week; not feeling so hot. So I decided to do a gratitude check. I am taking a few minutes to look at all of the amazing things I have and that are happening in my life. I was talking to a friend earlier this week and she said she was really struggling. I think it’s so easy to concentrate on the negative, and can’t see that we are surrounded by positives. So here is my blessings. What are yours?

I’m grateful for:

  • My little sidekick muse of a son
  • For the lessons my son teaches me daily
  • For the neighborhood I live in
  • For the friends that make up a family for me and my son
  • For the generosity of others
  • For the ability to find the good in the bad
  • For a really cool living space full of light, color, and laughter
  • For my ability to make a living with my art
  • For the people who I know I can count on
  • For everything that has happened in my life that has brought me to this point
  • For another day to live this crazy beautiful life
  • For knowing what love is

And all of the really cool opportunities that keep presenting themselves:

  • Teaching for several new organizations
  • Clarity on the direction I want to be going
  • Being surrounded by creative positive people
  • Friends offering their discounts, contacts, and resources for my benefit
  • New national art shows and an international art show
  • Several local opportunities to hang
  • New art friends
  • A job with an arts academy that pays well

I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free. I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
