It might be the wee hours of Saturday once this hits the blog, but I refuse to change the title, or not admit this as a defeat of my one post a day self-inflicted challenge. So let’s all just move on…
Let me start by saying I love the idea of gratitude posts. Just like the common human being, I too am not always the happy go lucky person you may think me to be. But finding things to feel grateful about, or recognize as positive forces at play in your life, is a healthy and practical way to put a good spin on a bad week or even reinforce the wave of happiness that is currently washing over you.
Seeing as this is my first one, and my almost non-existent audience barely knows me, I thought I should introduce the two beings that bring me the most joy on a daily basis.
Exhibit A: Rich
I have the most amazing human as a boyfriend. He might not be perfect, but he’s just perfect for me. He is my best friend and partner in crime. Everyday I feel blessed to wake up next to him, and he never fails to make me feel cherished and wholly loved each day. (I’m a lucky woman.) We endeavour to help each other reach our personal goals and always choose to dream together. Creating a home so far from where I grew up, where the majority of my life took place, is an easier and more fulfilling effort with him by my side. Ok, ok, I’ll stop gushing now. You get it: I really love my awesome boyfriend.
Exhibit B: Ceinwyn a.k.a. Fluffy
The other being who I wake up to every morning is our gorgeous rough collie, Ceinwyn who takes her Welsh name from a Robin Hobb character (nerd points if you know which books she’s from). My beloved Fluffy is the sweetest, purest, nervous yet completely chilled out soul I have ever met. I love her intensely. She probably gets more kisses on a daily basis than the average dog and I am not even ashamed to admit that. I have never known companionship like hers before and I will forever be changed by it. Her current location is curled up beside me on the couch and sleeping, because that’s how her adorable little face likes to roll. While her fluff is a constant cleaning battle in our house, the joy and comfort her puppy cuddles bring are completely worth it.
Let me know what you have to be grateful for or happy about this week.
