Day Forty-Two ... A New Month

It feels right to start the first day of a new month off with being grateful for the past month ...

I am grateful to my friends and family who support me when I'm weak and cheer me on when I'm strong.
I am grateful for my health. My vision. My hearing. My taste. My sense of touch. My sense of feeling.
I am grateful to be alive. To be able to breath on my own. For the use of my arms and legs. For having ten fingers and ten toes.
I am grateful to live in Las Vegas. Where the sky is almost always blue, the mountains are a reminder of eternity and to not sweat the small stuff. That even the big stuff will pass too.
I am grateful for the phone, it keeps me in touch with those I love.
I am grateful to love the work I do and for each and every one of my clients. They inspire me and make me proud.
I am grateful to have loving and healthy pets. They remind me to slow down and enjoy moments.
I am grateful for the certification course I took last month. It has challenged me both mentally and physically; and has brought new concepts and tools to my training.
I am grateful for the food I eat and the water I drink.
I am grateful for my rebounder. I absolutely love jumping on the trampoline, especially knowing how much it does for me.
I am grateful for the experiences in my life, each have contributed to the person I am.
I am grateful for the hair dye that disguises my grays ... and that is a big job!
I am grateful for all the new friends I have made since moving to Las Vegas.
I am grateful for my car. It gets me here and there and everywhere.
I am grateful I began this blog, because every day without fail it keeps me vigilant for good things to write about. It changes the focus of my day from "Ugh, I can't believe that happened" to "OK, let's forget that because I can't write about it, where is something good and uplifting to write about instead?"

Thank you for reading,
