Gratitude - Music

Gratitude - Music

Music is a huge part of my life.

I use it to lift my mood when I'm in a depression cycle. I use it to motivate me to get moving or to slow down when I stretch. I belt out tunes with Daughter when we're in the car (and sometimes, just because we can in my office). I use it for energy healing and sleep.


Gratitude - Art

Gratitude - Art

Picasso or DaVinci? What piece of art are you most grateful for?

Art comes in many flavors and forms, but there's one piece in particular that really sparks my thinking and reminds me that it's okay to be imperfect.


Gratitude - Knowledge

Gratitude - Knowledge
That's it. I'm grateful to know that no matter what happens, no matter what I'm faced with, I am enough. I have all I need inside of myself to come through it more or less unscathed. Yeah, it might hurt for a while. I might be fatigued to hell and back. But I am enough to get through it.

Gratitude - Sight

Gratitude - Sight

Personally, nothing beats the view of trees outside my office window. The cabin that sits in front of them needs some work, but it beats my old view of a parking lot and weeds.

It's Nature's reminder that we've moved on from those rough days when we made due with what we had.


Gratitude - Abilities

Gratitude - Abilities
I have a reading list that is pages long, and an entire blog devoted to reviews. Books gave me a new career when I thought I was used up and useless because of my disabilities - not just because I can read and write reviews (which I do in copious quantities), but also because I've gotten ideas from them for expanding myself into areas I never would have dreamed of before
