Gratitude List Have been doing these in my head in the am and pm when in bed but also wanted to record..forgetting some of the good ones I had though! Healthy food for dinner a hard workout followed by boost of endorphins and then good rest Snapple diet peach iced tea brewed on keurig trying on bathing suits in horrible lighting and not allowing it to phase me or self critique- I am ok as I am seeing couples out shopping and not comparing or being envious enjoying my alone time enjoying independence snuggling with my pets having the bed to myself (except for fuzzy soft things-pets) Best friends thinking about traveling abroad and being able to do it in the next year people reading peacefully by the pool, no sound but the fountain, water and birds night chirping bugs (forget the name locusts?) Walking the dog on breezy warm summer nights moisturizing facials keeping the kitchen clean Lemon scented cleaning products my amazing therapist blistex not feeling rushed for love
