    This Is What I'm Grateful For

    Out with the old, in with the new.

    I thought I was attached to a place that I was working at, and they sent me to a new location. I was afraid of change and at first rejected the whole idea. But I didn't realize that everything would be fine and that sometimes what you thought was good, wasn't as good as it could...

    Gratitude consists of being more aware of what

    you have then what you don't have.

    One Time..

    when I was about 19 years old, a boyfriend broke up with me.  I was devastated and wallowing in self pitty when my best friend basically told me to suck it up and think about the good things in my life.  She said there's always going to be other people who have it a lot...

    This morning I laid my head down on my son's

    Stop being ungrateful.

    – No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life. Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs. Instead of thinking about what you’re missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.

    I think that everything happens to you for reason. The hard times that you go through build character, making you a much stronger person.

    Today has been a ... strange day.

    I have felt unglued and somehow "out of place" for some time...some years, actually. Trips to other countries and of course, work, have made things bearable somehow, and yet... I am well armed with theory: we should live in TODAY, not yesterday or tomorrow... Our thoughts...

    Who remembers drive-in movies?

    that things will always work out. Maybe not the way we hoped, but they will work out. But sometimes I'm trying to find a way, and I just can't see it. I keep trying to think of a solution, and I'm coming up with nothing. Every time that happens, one of the amazing people in my...
