Thankful Thursday #4

I have a bad habit of letting myself feel overwhelmed and frazzled when a week gets busy, rather than grateful for everything fun that's going on. In the spirit of that attitude check, here's what I'm thankful for these days.

21. Amanda. My first friend in Nashville, my best friend for a while; who becomes Mrs. Wilder on Saturday. I just love her and I want to celebrate her and Dustin to the maxxxx this weekend. Still working on that speech.

22. Being on time to work all week. (Except today because I was sleeping so well, okay?!) I should note that my one word motto for the month was discipline. And I haven't shared it because I've been failing miserably. But, as I tell myself, they are goals because I need to work on them. If I were just perfect already, I would have nothing to work on. Well, I'm just working on it; waking up on time, going to bed on time, working out, portion control, blahblahblah.

23. A laundry room! It's not mine, but I'm house-sitting so it basically is. Oh divine luxury to have a room dedicated to washing my INSANE PILE of dirty clothing. Did you know that sometimes otherwise I use a community laundry room and it's the worst part of my life? Now you know.

24. Receiving and sending cards. Hold up, has this never been on a Thankful Thursday list? *checking old posts* Uh, snail mail is one of my favorite things on earth. Yes, I text all day, but I really feel like I'm talking when I'm writing a letter. And finding a letter in my mailbox is such a bright spot in any day! Thankful for friends who are penpals!

The coming of Spring has really picked up the pace of life around here, but that is something I should always be thankful for, instead of begrudgingly getting out of bed to start the day.

But you know what I just realized? I haven't worked a full week this month. And it's nearly over! That's gotta count for something, especially when you realize everyone who isn't working right now is on Spring Break. Ahhhh those were the days. Okay, now about that attitude of gratitude!

What are you thankful for today? Let's share those positive vibes!

Oh I've always wanted a pen pal! When I worked in Disney, my New Zealand friend and I would always say that we'd be pen pals, but sadly we forgot :(

I'm pretty sure the three of us should be penpals, how fun would that be!

Knowing that you write letters just makes me happy. I moved a lot when I was younger (ok, just twice between parents, but still). I used to write to old friends from each place and did so for many years! It started in first grade when we had them set up by our teachers (I still have that first letter and picture of us meeting for the first time) and then I would write to several of my friends from the Bay when I moved up north, then again writing to friends from up north when I moved back to the Bay. I kept all the letters and like to read them once in while. I think I need to get back into it :)
