The Tuesday List #9

Pineapple in ice blockThese 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 experience.
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 relief.
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 statement.
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.
