I’ve decided to take on the 30 Day Gratitude Project. I think there are a bunch of things written about this but I’m just winging it. I’m going to write something every day to acknowledge what I am grateful for in the hopes that it will lift me up and help steer me in the right direction. I need to make some changes and being positive and grateful is one of them.
Day #1 –
I wanted to start by writing about how grateful I am for my family but that will wait and will probably be expressed in a series of other posts. Today I am grateful for health and friends to celebrate it with. I took a hike with 2 good friends. We didn’t wear a GPS device or even a watch so I can only guess but I think it we hiked for about 2.5 hours and covered somewhere between 8 and 10 miles. It was a beautiful day, it was a beautiful place and my friends are beautiful. I’m grateful to have them in my life and to have the vitality at the age of 61 to go on that hike and suffer nothing more than sore feet and slightly sore glutes as a result. Mostly what I endured is the warmth of friendship and love and the strum of hard worked muscle fibers that have what it takes to go the distance.
Happy New Year to all! I will hold today to be a harbinger of things to come and on the dark days I will remember the strong, happy, uplifted feeling of a day like today.
