Many days have passed since I have had the desire to actually post any appreciation posts. I got myself into quite a downward spiral over my thoughts. That is all I can really attribute my mood too. Outwardly, by all appearances, I should have been happy, but inwardly, my thoughts were dragging me down. My choice – (though at the time, it sure didn’t feel that way).

Now I am back 🙂 and feeling much more centered. Sometimes it just takes a bit of time to right yourself. As you can see, I an continuing on where I left off. I will get 365 days of gratitude even it takes quite a bit longer than a year to get there. It’s a process and, in my mind, there is no need to start at the beginning when I miss a day. To start over almost implies that there was a failure along the way. If you are moving in the direction you want to go, it doesn’t matter if you start and stop as you are always ahead of where you started.

So today I am grateful for my amazing immune system! I am surrounded by people with various stages of a cooties epidemic. All three kids are home from school and hubby definitely has the man flu and I am feeling great! I love how resilient my body is. And with that, I think it is time for a walk outside in the unseasonably warm and sunny weather!

Until Next Time
