The Grateful Thread
Today I am grateful for my best friend and 80's music. His best friend senses allowed him to wake up and respond to my urgent text messages even though he normally sleeps for another hour and playing 80's music is helping give me a much needed energy boost in place of the dreaded soda that I crave.

On the other hand ...
- I'm having a pretty nice day off ;
- It is a beautiful-weather day and I'm just getting ready to go out (though there is that *off* which is a curious way of "enjoying it") ;
- I'm healthy and fed and can afford a cup of chocolate in city-centre ;
- I enjoy reading philosophy (I'm not coerced into reading it to earn a pretentious - and useless - university degree) ;
- I have several pair of shoes -- I don't know why that is important, but still ...
I'll let you know later ...
Around this time every year, I normally go through about a week of pollen-allergy before I get accustomed to it being in the air... that was irritating me for a good part of the evening yesterday, but today I can breath through my nose just fine, and my eyes aren't watery. It may come back, but for now, I'm grateful just to be able to function.
I am grateful that I have everything that I do in my life. I have a place to live, a good paying job which I enjoy and excel in, good side work, a passion, friends, and family who care about me. Life is good and I should breathe and de-stress about the little things.
I am grateful I have people in my life I can be silly with and laugh uncontrollably with and who see the wonder with me of being alive
They teach me so much
I'm grateful for the people who not only tell me but show me what i mean to them by their presence in my life day to day, and for the courage they show of opening up to me and allowing me to open up to them, regardless of what may or may not come from it. It's a personal adventure that I feel is crucial to our journeys, and it gives each other all the more meaning when we take that leap and allow it to happen for us to grow.
