Attitude of #Gratitude: Day 18 of 21

Attitude of Gratitude: Day 18 of 21

Today, I am grateful for…

1. Getting through an entire day at work stress free. Could be the sunny weather. Could be that I had plenty sleep over the weekend. Could be that certain energy-vampires weren’t around or it could just be that “frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn”. Whatever it is, I like it and feel a lot like my old self again.

2. Cuddles from caring colleagues – I’ll keep our secret but thanks; a hug can go a long way!

3. The warm sun on my shoulders as I head home. I could almost burst into a John Denver classic but, despite telling the world NEVER to BLEND IN, I don’t know that people on this bus are ready for that level of crazy. This is the ‘burbs, after all.

You may fancy a wee singsong so here’s the link to that song:
