It is Friday again, the third one of the new year already!
Before I pour myself a glass of wine and give myself over to the weekend completely, I think I need to be positively thankful for a few things. What do I mean by that? It means being thankful WITHOUT adding a BUT at the end. I always have BUTS to add, and then I end up dwelling only on the negatives. Most of life have BUTS, that is the way life works, ‘but’ I do think that if we can stop ourselves just before we add the BUT, maybe we will have a more positive experience of life? If we say we are thankful about something, surely it cancels out the thankfulness as soon as we add the BUT? (I am thankful for my new car, but I wish it was bigger.)
I am thankful for an unexpected one night booking for the guesthouse on Wednesday.
I am thankful for having chatted to all three my children this week, and that they are all doing well.
I am thankful that my little granddaughter is much better after having been sick for most of the month so far.
I am thankful that we are all still healthy amidst a worldwide pandemic.
I am thankful for living in a lovely town, surrounded by stunning natural beauty, where it is a joy to take my Daisy-dog for a walk.
Now, with a thankful heart, I am going to relax with a glass of wine, and wish all of you a wonderful weekend. 🙂
