For today’s post I thought I would list a few things in my life that make me happy. Some days are better than others and sometimes it’s vital to take a moment to appreciate all the good things that are happening around me.
As I am sitting here in my hotel room in Germany at four am unable to sleep, here are a few things I am thankful for right now.
This blog I have here, this thing I created, is one thing I am so thankful to be able to do. Being unable to sleep before a transatlantic flight really sucks, but I am able to feel productive, to keep myself occupied and to create something out of this unfortunate situation.
Wine is a wonderful thing, red, white, rosé, sparkling, they are all good. Sitting down after a long day with friends and wine is such a fun and relaxing thing for me. It doesn’t happen everyday, but when it does, I surely am thankful to have a bottle of pinot lying around.
Friends and Family
Yes, this is obvious, but it can never be said enough. Having quality people in my life is one of the most important things to me and I can never be thankful enough.
Some of you reading this may roll your eyes at this, judge me, laugh a little, but this is one of my guilty pleasures and I appreciate the heck out of reality TV shows. The Bachelor, Teen Mom, Survivor, The Real World, etc… The crappier the better ! These shows are entertaining and fun to me and I love them.
I’ve said it before and I shall say it again, I love my job. Some days are more tiring than others, like tomorrow when I’ll have been up for over 24 hours. I am thankful for a job than allows me to travel, a job that allows me the freedom too blog, a job that allows me to have almost two weeks off per month, but mostly I am thankful to have a job. In this world, in this economy, having a job at all is something to never ever take for granted.
This was just a quick, lighthearted post about appreciating the little things in life.
Have a great night everyone!
