Thankful thursdays....

In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity. Albert Einstein

I'm a quote collector, but this one really strikes a cord with me today. Its so true. In the midst of all difficulty lies opportunity. Opportunity for advancement, learning, grace, love, forgivness. Whatever the situation, there is always an opportunity you can take out of it.

Today is thursday. I call it thankful Thursday.

  • thankful for a hot cup of coffee on a cool day
  • thankful that rain stopped for my sons field trip
  • thankful for my friends and family
  • thankful for my clients that make me smile on a daily basis
  • thankful for the fact that its almost the weekend :) Weekends rock!
What are you thankful today???

so true...

I was just going through twitter and I follow the "joy of living" blog on twitter and they tweeted...

What is the last thing you do before you go to bed at night? Whatever it is, make sure it feels good.

and it made me think. What do I do?? Well I read from two daily inspirational calanders. One is a quote from Palsms and the other is just a daily does of positive info. I love both. Both make me go hmmm.

I also try to read. Now those that know me well know lately I only read things that make me happy. Generally that is self help books, books on reflexology, marketing or along that lines. I don't read a lot fiction. Sometimes I will pick up a novel, but for the most part I get very few mins a day to read, so when I read it will be something that is going to expand my mind :)

So my question to you today is.....

What do you do before you go to bed??? Does it make you happy? Care to share? ;)


p.s. for those who wondered about the elastic band around my wrist, it was in place of the braclet. The stop complaining braclet. So every time I verbally complain, I switch the elastic band to the opposite wrist. The goal? 21 consecutive days without moving it. So far... 2 days in a row. Its a start ;)

  • that the sun is peaking out a bit today and its finally warmer
  • that school is nearing an end and summertime to start
