These are the things I’m celebrating and grateful for this
Tuesday – a day that doesn’t get nearly enough love. As the saying goes: every
day may not be good but there is something good in every day. Here, I’ve listed
10 of the good-est.
This list. Remember that Facebook gratitude challenge last
year? That taught me the value of simply recognising all that I have, and being
thankful for them. This weekly list is having the same effect.
Frozen Pineapple Lumps. If you don’t eat them straight from the
freezer, you aren’t really living. Seriously, try it. My sympathies are with those of you
living outside Australia/NZ who aren’t familiar with this superior confectionary
Being sick. This seems like a weird thing to be grateful
for, but since I haven’t had a cold for three years, I knew my body must have
really needed to shut down – so I let it. The great thing about being
sick is you are forced to rest – no more fighting your body past its limits; you
just surrender. I have slept so well over the past few days, and it’s been
brilliant. And on that note…
Vicks VapoRub. When you’re sick, this stuff is the shiz. My mum
is not here to give me a cuddle but this is the next best thing. Sweet, sweet
The Good Wife. It’s one of those superbly written programs that
weaves its characters into your head, so that you find yourself thinking about
them in idle moments. And this series is the best yet. The writers are building
up to an exhilarating final; I am already on the edge of my seat.
Comedy Festival. This week I’m going to see one of the Comedy
Festival shows with a bunch of mates I haven’t seen for ages and I expect to be
the loudest laugher there. (It comes naturally to me.)
Reiki. As of last night I’m officially qualified as a reiki practitioner, and I feel really excited and confident about my energy work. I think this is going to be the start of massive changes for
me. Now I just have to figure out the when, why and how.
Letters. I got a handwritten letter – such a novelty! – recently and
it was the such a wonderful thing to receive. I once described a
handwritten letter as being like receiving a hug in an envelope. I stand behind that
Slippers. Pretty sure I don’t need to explain the joys of this one.
All of you. Hearing/reading people tell me how much they’re
getting out of my daily angel card readings is an enormous boost to me, so
thank you. Knowing I’m helping other people in even small ways is a wonderful
thing. You effing rule.
