Dear 2017

I am so grateful for this year.  I am thankful for lots of little things. Chances to create with my husband and opportunities to play with my son.  Having creative, soulful and inspiring people flitting in and out of my life, whether in person or virtually.  These people make me smile and laugh and strive to be better.  They are my everyday hero’s and I am blessed to encounter so many every day.  So to my hero’s I say Thank You!  Keep blessing us with your beautiful hearts and smiles and fill our ears and bellies with laughter.

Peace and Blessings

Dear 2017

Dear 2017,

Together we are going to rock this year.  I feel like I am laying a foundation for many positive things to come. Positivity doesn’t always come easy for me so I am trying my darndest to make it a part of every day.  Yes, I talk to myself, I write things down, I make myself all sorts of notes.

I am also trying very hard to practice gratitude.  I am grateful for the beautiful day you provided us with yesterday and a chance to take my son to a new park with super fun slides.  I am grateful that even though you got my blood pumping and gave me near hysterics as I watched my son fall while climbing (as I frantically tried to get to him in time but couldn’t) that he was not injured.

I am grateful that while driving home I was paying attention and was able to maneuver my vehicle out of the way and avoid becoming part of the three car pile up that happened in front of me.  I am thankful none of the people that were part of the accident were injured.  They all hopped quickly out of their vehicles while I sat in mine trying to stop shaking so I could get out and make sure they were okay.  The man I talked to was positive.  “I am okay,” he said, (in all honesty he looked better than I felt he was even smiling.) “It was about time for a new car anyway.” His was the car in the middle.  Watching that man was inspiring to me.  I wish we could all take things in stride like he seemed to.  I am very grateful for the experience of having met him for the brief time I did.

And while I didn’t accomplish every tiny little thing I wanted to yesterday, I made progress and that is all I really want.  Progress every day no matter how small or large, just a few steps forward.

Peace and Blessings,

Lisa
