7 Days of Gratitude.

I was challenged to write 3 things I am grateful for for 7 days and to tag 3 people every day to do the same. So, here's to 7 days of focusing on the good!

Day 7/7
Today I am grateful for:
1. The times where I see the truth, tell it to myself, and then I actually listen to it. It's too easy to get caught up in the stories we tell ourselves. Sometimes they just aren't true and there is power in knowing that.
2. The freedom I feel when I'm acting 12, not 36.
3. The people who take the time to really see me and be present with me. I notice. 

Day 6/7
Today I am grateful for:
1. Times that I surprise myself. Like yesterday when I put this tattoo on my arm.
2. Any time pain translates into strength. 
3. Dean, who makes me laugh every single day and helps me to find true meaning, self acceptance, and motivation.

Day 5/7
Today I am grateful for:
1. Carrie Fazio for pushing me to take a chance on myself.
2. Ingrid Michaelson…for, well, everything she does with her voice. Concert tonight!!
3. Vicki, Phyl, my parents, my brother (today) and all the people who keep my house filled with conversation and love (everyday). 

Day 4/7
Today I am grateful for:
1. Saying yes spontaneously. And for the people who push me to do things that are outside of my comfort zone. (Yes, there are things out of my comfort zone!)
2. The people who make me feel welcome and at home.
3. Erin for supporting me no matter what. And I can be a difficult one to support.

Day 3/7
Today I am grateful for:
1. Songs lyrics that are so powerful that they feel like they are pouring out of you rather than being heard. Reminds me of how connected we all are.
2. Road trips. There's something about the flow between conversation, music, and silence that builds an intimacy that I cherish.
3. Raw, honest conversation and the people brave enough to have it. 

Day 2/7
Today I am grateful for:
1. The moment that I remember to take a deep breath and fill my lungs with air. Always brings me back to being a kid. And feels so incredibly good.
2. Jaiden's laughter, bravery, charm. Neiko's cuddles and playful smiles. 7 days to take them in.
3. Serenity. I found myself the day she was born and I'm a better version of myself every time she is near me.

Day 1/7
Today I am grateful for:
1. Feeling everything. The cold water, the rocky bottom of the lake, the warmth of the sun. I'm alive and I love it.
2. My family and the amazing people who helped us to make this happen.
3. Down time.
